Samsung unveiled its highly-anticipated Galaxy Note 8 today in New York City, and we finally find out if all the leaks and rumours surrounding the much-hyped device came into fruition.
Though the South Korean tech giant bounced back with its Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices, which were launched in late March, it’s the Note 8 that everyone has its focus on, thanks to the dreadful fate the fire-prone Note 7 suffered last year, forcing Samsung to pull out the high-end device and abruptly end its production.
This is Samsung’s first smartphone to feature dual camera set-up at the rear with portrait mode and dual optical image stabilisation (OIS). It also comes with “Bixby” intelligent assistant, water and dust resistance and iris scanner.
Similar to the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+, the Note 8 also sports “Infinity Display” with an aspect ratio of 18.5:9.
The 6.3-inch screen is Super AMOLED with a resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels.
Note 8 sports top-notch features such as 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core chipset with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage.
