Samsung reveals Galaxy Note8 with 'infinity display', Bixby, 4 colors

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with 6.3-inch Quad HD+ Infinity display dual camera Announced

While the front looks attractive, I can't say the same about the back. The fingerprint scanner stays on the back of the device, next to the camera sensors. But you must know that initially, the device will be available in two-color variants only, Midnight Black and Maple Gold. You get a similar design with rounded edges at the front and the back but unlike the S8/S8+ it is not as rounded. What's more is that the new S-Pen is IP68 and the Note8 is water resistant (IP68). It comes with a 18.5:9 aspect ratio as well.

Speaking of borrowing, the Galaxy Note 8 also retains the Infinity Display. The display is 0.1 inches bigger than the S8+ as well as the largest Note device ever made. It has the latest 10nm chip powering it, along with a massive 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. 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.

The battery might be an issue for some, considering what happened previous year.

Major highlights of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 are- bigger infinity display, enhanced S-Pen, and dual camera.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Locally South Africa will be getting the Note8 with an Exynos processor rather than the Snapdragon 835. So, there's a 12MP f/1.7 primary sensor and another 12MP f/2.4 telephoto lens with 2X Optical Zoom.

The camera sports a dual-pixel camera.

There are multiple camera features on board, the most prominent one being Live Focus. The camera app offers a "Dual Capture" mode that stitches together photos from both cameras and saves them individually. For selfie lovers, there is an 8MP sensor at the front with aperture f/1.7. And there are more places in the system where you can use handwriting now, including messaging. As expected, the much-beloved S-pen stylus will be returning, a very attractive feature for some users, like artists. This time around it comes with a finer tip, improved pressure sensitivity, and can even be used to take screen-off memos.

Samsung has introduced a new feature App Pair which allows the users to combine the launch of two apps into one - basically clicking on paired apps will now allow the users to make use of two apps on the phone's large display at once.
