Samsung took to the stage at a special event in New York to reveal the company’s highly anticipated successor to the infamous Note 7 smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
Easily one of the most exciting smartphones to be released this year, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is a phablet-sized smartphone fitted with a huge 6.3-inch Infinity Display with very small bezels, effectively making the device’s display ‘full-screen’.
Indeed, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is shaping up to be the number one smartphone for watching videos and playing games on thanks to its impressively big screen, which is even larger than the recently released Samsung Galaxy S8+.
As the Galaxy Note 8 is HDR compatible, you’ll be able to use the device to watch high-definition content from streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video and you can enjoy high-quality graphics when playing your favourite mobile games.
One of the biggest selling points of the Galaxy Note 8 is however the inclusion of an updated Samsung S Pen stylus, enabling owners to quickly jot down notes on the smartphone in addition to drawing images.
Drawn images can be strung together as animated GIFs, and the Galaxy Note 8 is particularly suited to creative individuals looking for a high-tech device capable of performing lots of varied tasks.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the first Samsung smartphone to feature a dual camera setup, which consists of a 12MP telephoto lens and a 12MP wide-angle lens.
Together, these two sensors provide a 1x optical zoom and offer other camera features such as background blur, while the front camera is fitted with an 8MP sensor and is perfect for selfies and video chats.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is scheduled to go on sale from mid-September.
