Samsung is getting ready to unveil Galaxy Note 8 during its “Unpacked” event that is being held today.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 comes in Midnight Black, Maple Gold, Orchid Grey and Deep Sea Blue color variants; and knowing Samsung, there will likely be a few more color variants in the future. Take a look below to find out more.
Besides its new design, the biggest highlight of the iPhone 8 is said to be augmented reality features.
Having consulted with the Verge hive mind, here are my best hypotheses about the reasoning behind Samsung’s latest move up in price with its brand new phone.
But when the Galaxy S6 edge+ came along, something changed: Samsung realized it could sell a boatload of big phones sans the stylus entirely. The Note 8, on the other hand, is a lot straighter with less curves and more harsh lines. With a subject roughly four feet away, the Note 8 will use both lenses to capture depth information along with the photo.
“We appreciate the relentless passion of the Note community”.
The Note has been at the forefront of innovation, starting with the AMOLED display in 2008, S Pen in 2011, water and dust resistance in 2013, wireless charging in 2015 and infinity display this year. It is also due to get Android Oreo update in the coming months. Just as we saw with the Galaxy S8, dropping the Note 8 into the cradle and then hooking up an HDMI monitor and either Bluetooth or USB peripherals like a keyboard and mouse will turn the smartphone into a PC replacement.
“We are here today because of your support”, he added, after a video of sympathetic Samsung users was played before the audience.
Just Beside the camera sensors, there is the heart rate monitor and the fingerprint scanner. It’s a awful position, and it’s the same on the Note 8.
Are you excited for the Note 8? Meanwhile, to give you an idea, the Galaxy S8 has a 5.8-inch display. In terms of weight, the S8+ comes in at 173g which is notably lighter than the 195g of the Note 8. I’ll have to compare to my Galaxy S8+ more closely when I get a review unit, but right now, this is almost a carbon copy of the S8’s software as far as I can tell. “As a result, the Note 8 has successfully completed a rigorous series of device and battery safety compatibility test protocols”, said Sajeev Jesudas, president of UL International, in a Samsung press release about the Note 8. It will boast 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal flash storage, which can be further expanded through a microSD slot. The Galaxy Note 7 – and others before it – was a popular business tool and has a loyal following. These are the best displays on the market, without doubt. The primary is a wide-angle camera that has an f1.7 aperture and dual-pixel autofocus.
The back features two 12-megapixel cameras, both fitted with optical image stabilisation and supporting 2x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom.
Live Message allows you to write a note or drawing and save that as an animated GIF and share through Facebook Messenger, Twitter or Snapchat.
All eyes will be on the new phablet, launching a year after the Note 7 made headlines when buyers reported the handset spontaneously combusting. Plus, it has a 3300mAh battery and wireless charging capabilities. The Note 8 has a 3,300mAh battery, in contrast to the Note 7’s 3,500mAh.
Beyond the S Pen, Samsung’s spin on Android is a lot more minimal than in previous years.
