In addition, the memo also details IP68 support for the phablet and manages to detail the alleged Iris sensor for the device quite a bit as well.

This should come as good news especially to enterprise users of the device, as it'll most likely add a very neat dimension to the device's overall security.

Furthermore, we're also hearing that the Galaxy Note 7 will be coming with Vulcan on board, which should add a nice gaming dimension to the tablet.
