Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Specifications and Features Announced

Of late, Samsung finally enters the competition adopting dual camera modules on the Galaxy Note 8.

Samsung has unveiled the flagship of the Note lineup, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, in their Unpacked event in NY.

It will also have a dedicated "Bixby" voice assistant hardware button on the side as well an S-Pen, which marks its return on the Galaxy Note series.

The S Pen stylus is one of the things that sets the Note 8 apart from Samsung's other flagship phones.

And Samsung introduces the Galaxy Note 8. There's also a Dual Capture mode that'll use both rear cameras to take two photos simultaneously - one close up, one wide angle - and let you keep both. Coming with the infinity display, the Samsung Galaxy Note8 has the 18.5:9 aspect ratio for its 6.3-inch display. The phone has been launched as "Super AMOLED" having a resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels. Past leaks suggest that it will be available in eight colour variants - Midnight Black, Arctic Silver, Orchid Gray/Violet, Coral Blue, Dark Blue, Deep Sea Blue, Pink, and Gold colour variants.

The phone has got an update in terms of RAM, which is increased to 6 GB from its predecessor's 4GB. Samsung officially confirmed that the Note 8 comes out into the markets with a 64GB built-in storage as well as support for SD Cards. Connectivity on the smartphone includes NFC and MST for Samsung Pay, and offers USB Type-C charging port.

The smartphone comes with Dual 12MP sensor at back (f/1.7 and f/2.4) with optical image stabilization support.

Samsung said it has tested the Note8's battery safety to ensure it doesn't run afoul of the same problem it had with its last Galaxy Note product. At least, Samsung says so. That's okay, there's another Note 8 deal dubbed "the Galaxy Foundation kit".

The rear cameras took fine looking shots in the closed, well-lit demo area I tested it in, though it was hard to truly try out the new dual lens system in that environment. It is nearly identical in appearance to the S8, with a sleek edge-type screen sans home button on the front panel. The front camera comes with an 8MP selfie snapper with F1.7 aperture. When travelling overseas, you can use the improved S Pen Translate feature to hover over text to quickly translate it. One can get a good Android smartphone for just half of that price. What's more is that the new S-Pen is IP68 and the Note8 is water resistant (IP68).
