The U.S variant of the Galaxy Note 7 is powered by Snapdragon 820 SoC and includes 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

Talking about the specifications, the device sports a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with QuadHD resolution. With IP68 certification, not only the device itself but the S Pen is also both waterproof and dustproof. The S Pen also works seamlessly on the wet display. It is also the first smartphone from Samsung to feature USB 3.1 Type-C port. The device also supports fast charging via wired and wireless chargers.
On the camera front, the device sports the same 12MP + 5MP sensors as on the Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge. It will be available in Gold Platinum, Silver Titanium, Black Onyx and Blue Coral color options. Apart from the Fingerprint sensor, the Galaxy Note 7 also sports the IRIS sensor on the front for making it even more secure.
