Published

Though Samsung’s upcoming stylus-equipped flagship, the Galaxy Note 7, will officially be unveiled on Aug. 2, we can already see exactly what it looks like thanks to a full set of press photos that made the rounds online. 

Published by Samsung-tracking blog SamMobile, the photos show the Note 7 in three colors: blue, gold and silver (the one color that’s missing here is black), and from all sides. 

The Galaxy Note 7’s looks aren’t exactly a secret, as several press renders leaked a few weeks ago, but these new photos show the gold variant for the first time and the colors are slightly different.

The new photos clearly show that the Note 7 curves on both sides (similarly to the Galaxy S7 Edge). The third black dot on top is likely the rumored iris scanner

Official specifications have not been unveiled, but the rumor mill says it will have a 5.7-inch quad HD Super AMOLED screen, a 12-megapixel camera and IP68 water/dust resistance.

Interestingly, pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 7 have already opened in Dubai, two weeks ahead of launch. Intrigued customers here can leave an AED 500 ($130) deposit to get their device once it ships.

How will oil prices shape the Covid-19 recovery in emerging markets?

How will oil prices shape the Covid-19 recovery in emerging markets?

– After falling significantly in 2020, oil prices have returned to pre-pandemic levels
– The rise has been driven by OPEC+ production cuts and an improving economic climate
– Higher prices are likely to support a rebound in oil-producing emerging markets
– Further virus outbreaks or increased production would pose challenges to price stability

A combination of continued production cuts and an increase in economic activity has prompted oil prices to return to pre-pandemic levels – a factor that will be crucial to the recovery of major oil-producing countries in the Middle East and Africa.

Brent crude prices rose above $60 a barrel in early February, the first time they had exceeded pre-Covid-19 values. They have since continued to rise, going above $66 a barrel on February 24.

The ongoing increase in oil prices, which have soared by 75% since November and around 26% since the beginning of the year, marks a dramatic change from last year.

Following the closure of many national borders and the implementation of travel-related restrictions to stop the spread of the virus, demand for oil slumped globally.

In the wake of the Saudi-Russia price war in early 2020, Brent crude prices fell from around $60 a barrel in February that year to two-decade lows of $20 a barrel in late April, as supply increased and demand plummeted. The value of WTI crude – the main benchmark for oil in the US – fell to record lows of around $40 a barrel last year on the back of a lack of storage space.

While global demand for oil remains low, one factor credited with reversing the trend is the decision to make significant cuts to oil production, which subsequently tightened global supplies.
