Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Unveiled with 6.3-inch AMOLED and Dual Cameras

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Unveiled with 6.3-inch AMOLED and Dual Cameras

It will be made available in the all-new Deepsea Blue, as well as Midnight Black, Orchid Gray and Maple Gold. Connectivity options are - Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5, USB Type-C, NFC, and Global Positioning System. The phone is also IP68 certified for water and dust resistance.

Note 8 features a 6.3-inch QHD (2960x1440) infinity display which is almost bezel-less, full-frontal glass, and edge-to-edge screen. It's a 6.3 inch Quad HD (2,960 x 1,440p) panel with 18.5:9 aspect ratio.

The Galaxy Note8 has the biggest screen ever on a Note device, yet its narrow body makes it comfortable to hold in one hand.

The phone/tablet sounds absolutely fantastic, and it shows how much faith Samsung has in the device after the $5.3 billion recall of the previous model.

Samsung Galaxy Note8 is powered by the latest of their processors, the Exynos 8895 Octa, along with a whopping 6GB RAM on-board (just as the rumors confirmed in the past). In terms of storage, the Note 8 will come in three capacities - 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. Samsung is choosing to remain conservative on the battery side, as the Note 8 comes with a 3,300 mAh battery compared to the 3,500 mAh battery on the ill-fated Note 7. Personally, I would have loved to see a larger battery on board, but can't blame Samsung for playing it safe this year. It is the first Samsung smartphone that features a dual-camera design.




Of the dual cameras, one of them comes with f/1.7 for wide-angle images and one taking zoomed images at f/2.4 aperture.

At its Unpacked 2017 event, Samsung launched Galaxy Note 8, the successor of Galaxy Note 7 aka "time-bomb".

It's a feature that was originally meant to be pioneered by the doomed Galaxy Note7, which was ultimately recalled after reports that multiple units caught fire while charging. Their own portrait-mode basically which will also allow to blur out background objects even after you take the picture.

On the front, you're looking at an 8MP f/1.7 camera. The S-Pen has not really improved from the Note 7, but the S-Pen on the Note 7 was very good, so there isn't much to complain here. WIRED's Jeremy White writes, "One of the cool features of the Note 8 is that now, using that S Pen, the Always On screen allows you to write up to 100 pages of notes without unlocking the phone, as well as edit and pin notes to the Always On display". Coming to the DeX support, only the Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8 Plus can provide desktop experience by connecting to the DeX station.
