Do bigger things with the Samsung Galaxy Note8, Samsung’s newly revealed Note device. The Galaxy Note8 sports an even bigger Infinity Display that still manages to fit comfortably in one hand. It will also have Samsung’s best-ever smartphone camera to date, so that you can make use of the big screen to take stunning photos.
The Galaxy Note8 will be available starting in mid-September and will be available in Midnight Black, Orchid Gray, Maple Gold and Deepsea Blue.
Putting the “Infinity” in “Infinity Screen”
The Galaxy Note8 has the biggest screen ever on a Note device. Yet, it still has a narrow body that makes it comfortable to hold in one hand. The 6.3-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display will make all your games, photos, and videos come to life. Having all this space also gives you more room to watch, read and draw—making it the ultimate multitasking smartphone.
An improved S Pen with tons of features
The S Pen has always been one of the Note’s defining features. The Galaxy Note8 comes with an enhanced S Pen with a finer tip and improved pressure sensitivity. It also comes with some nifty features to help you express yourself.
The S Pen comes with Live Message, when communicating with text just isn’t enough. You can now share animated texts or drawings across platforms that support animated GIFs. Screen off memo allows you to take up to one-hundred pages of notes as soon as you remove the S Pen. You can also pin notes to the Always On Display and make edits directly from the Always On Display.
For overseas travels or when you come across a website in a foreign language, the improved S Pen Translate feature lets you hover over text to quickly translate not only individual words, but entire sentences in up to 71 languages, and instantly convert units and foreign currencies.
Take better pictures with a better camera
And finally of course, who can neglect to mention the camera when talking about a Samsung Note device. The Galaxy Note8 comes with Samsung’s most powerful smartphone camera yet – Two 12MP rear cameras with Optical Image Stabilization on both the wide-angle and telephoto lenses.
For more advanced photo-taking, the Galaxy Note8’s Live Focus feature lets you control the depth of field by allowing you to adjust the bokeh effect in preview mode and after you take the photo. In Dual Capture mode, both rear cameras take two pictures simultaneously and allow you to save both images; one close-up shot from the telephoto lens and one wide-angle shot that shows the entire background.
The wide-angle lens has a Dual Pixel sensor with rapid Auto Focus, so you can capture sharper, clearer shots even in low-light environments. The Galaxy Note8 is also equipped with an industry-leading 8MP Smart Auto Focus front-facing camera for sharp selfies and video chats.
A Galaxy of features
As if the larger screen, improved S Pen, and powerful camera weren’t enough, the Galaxy Note8 also comes with the following features:
- Water and Dust Resistance: You can take your Note almost anywhere you want with water and dust resistance (IP68) on the device and the S Pen. You can write even when the display is wet.
- Fast Wireless Charging: The Galaxy Note8 supports the most advanced wireless charging capabilities yet, so you can get a quick, convenient charge without having to mess around with ports or wires.
- Powerful Performance: With 6GB RAM, a 10nm processor, and expandable memory (up to 256GB), you have the power you need to browse, stream, play games, and multitask.
