A year after Samsung recalled and eventually discontinued the Galaxy Note 7 after several of the devices' batteries overheated and exploded or caught fire, the tech company is prepping the release of its next version of the smartphone, the Galaxy Note 8.
The phablet stands out thanks to the camera department, packing dual 12MP cameras, with both shooters featuring optical image stabilisation. Three new models - including a radically redesigned "iPhone 8" - are rumored to be released this fall, and Apple usually announces its new iPhones right around the time the Note 8 will hit store shelves.
It has 6GB of RAM and 64GB of memory, which is also expandable to 256GB, and features the DeX tech which lets you connect the phone to a monitor and lets you use it like a desktop computer. It's been a selling feature for the Note line for a while, and I'm actually impressed at how Samsung has iterated its stylus in a smart way with this update.
The Galaxy Note 8 picks up where the infamous Galaxy Note 7 left and infuses it with the Galaxy S8/Galaxy S8+' USP Infinity screen, which means, that much like Samsung's Galaxy S8/Galaxy S8+, the Galaxy Note 8 also comes with an edge-to-edge bezel-less display with an unusual 18.5:9 aspect ratio.
Huawei Mobile has taken the opportunity presented by the Samsung's Unpacked event, and the subsequent reveal, to do some promoting of its own as-yet-unannounced products. They also offer Always-On display but its functionality is improving by the software updates. What the Note series from Samsung is known for is the S Pen, and here, it is an advanced pen with some good features. Samsung has delivered some of its best features to the Galaxy Note 8, and it's done it all in a device that comes with one of the best designs ever.
Of course, the Note 8 comes with S-pen stylus. The company has, so far, been launching only its Exynos-based Galaxy flagship phones in India, so chances are the Exynos 8895-based Galaxy Note 8 would be coming to India.
The Note 8 is one of the most expensive smartphones on the market. Furthermore, the S Pen supports full sentence translations when it's used to select text. The electronics retailer will also offer 24-month financing on unlocked Galaxy Note 8 units when purchased with a My Best Buy credit card.
That said, many prospective buyers should think about waiting for better Galaxy Note 8 deals, a major phone launch in September, and long-term feedback in Note 8 reviews before committing. An 8-megapixel auto focus camera sits on the front for selfies. The phone uses USB Type-C for charging and data-syncing. The handset is expected to measure 162.5×74.6×8.5mm. It looks fine on the black model, but on anything else, it feels out of place.
