Samsung Reveals Galaxy Note 8 Smartphone

Posted August 24, 2017

On the inside, it'll run Android 7.1.1 Nougat but will be updated to Oreo in the coming months.

You would be able to watch the event through live streaming on YouTube and via Samsung UNPACKED 2017 app.

SAMSUNG is bringing out a massive smartphone it hopes will rival the iPhone 8.

According to ValueWalk, pre-registration for Galaxy Note 8 is expected to begin the day after tomorrow, 24th August. This is the first Note phone to arrive after last year's disastrous launch of the Note 7, which saw worldwide recalls after handsets started exploding. That's a larger version of the setup we saw on the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.

Samsung was forced to scrap its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones in 2016 after several of them burst into flames.

Let's speak about the innards first.

And Samsung introduces the Galaxy Note 8.

This is all backed up by a 3300mAh battery, being a few hundred mAh less than the 3600mAh Galaxy S8+.

Display: The Galaxy Note 8 comes with a 6.3-inch (18.5:9) Quad HD+ Super AMOLED edge-to-edge infinity display. It uses the same Infinity display technology as the Galaxy S8 duo. The phone comes with 6GB of RAM and 64GB, 128GB, or 256GB of internal storage, expandable with a microSD card.

12MP+12MP rear facing dual-camera setup with f/1.7 aperture and OIS. The new smartphone comes with tons of new features and performance improvements that should please the loyal Note fans who have really missed using the previous and impressive Galaxy Note7 device.

Additionally, Samsung has also announced App Pair which allows you to launch two apps at the same time side by side for seamless multi-tasking. The S-Pen on the Note 8 is water-resistant and capable of detecting 4096 levels of pressure, so you get the most accurate pen experience that you can on a smartphone. Some of the connectivity options include Bluetooth v5.0, USB Type-C, NFC, GPS and Wi-Fi. The front camera offers an upgraded 8 megapixels for selfie lovers. Samsung has revealed the devices will be released in four colors at launch, namely black, gray, gold and blue.
