 New Samsung Galaxy Note8


Defined as "for people who want to do bigger things" the Samsung Galaxy Note8 is new and improved with a "best-ever smartphone camera", "a bigger Infinity Display" and a "S Pen to communicate in more personal ways."

Available starting mid-September and can be pre-ordered now, the Samsung Galaxy Note8 comes in an array of colors: Midnight Black, Orchid Gray, Maple Gold and Deepsea Blue. Since safety is of paramount importance, the Galaxy Note8's battery has "undergone Samsung’s 8-Point Battery Safety Check—the most rigorous in the industry."

With a 6.3-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display, the Galaxy Note8 has ample room "to watch, read and draw—making it the ultimate multitasking smartphone." Yet the Galaxy Note8 is narrow enough to be held in one hand. Another feature of the Note8 is the new App Pair feature, "lets you create a custom pair of apps on the Edge Panel and simultaneously launch two apps with ease."

Express yourself in new ways with a redefined Galaxy Note8 S Pen. The S Pen now has "a finer tip, improved pressure sensitivity, and features that enable users to express themselves in ways that no other stylus or smartphone ever has." Live Message is another feature of the S Pen, where you can "share animated texts or drawings across platforms that support animated GIFs."

The Screen off memo, a powerful feature, lets you write one-hundred pages of notes, pin notes and make edits from the Always On Display. The S Pen Translate function translates in 71 languages, words and sentences and convert units and foreign currencies when S Pen hovers over text.

The Galaxy Note8 is the first smartphone with two 12MP rear cameras. Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) is available for both the rear wide-angle and telephoto lenses. Live Focus allows you alter the depth of field by adjusting the bokeh effect. Dual Capture mode, on both rear cameras allows you to take close-up and wide angle shots at the same time.

The Dual Pixel sensor with rapid Auto Focus, for the wide angle lens, takes impressive photos in low-light environments. An 8MP Smart Auto Focus front-facing camera takes sharp selfies and video chats.

Among the other powerful features and aspects of the Galaxy Note8 are Water and Dust Resistance, Fast Wireless Charging, Security, Powerful Performance, Innovative Mobile Experiences, Non-Contact Authentication and Enhanced DeX Capabilities.
