The recently launched Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is a powerhouse that will most likely put the series at the centre of attention again, after what happened to its predecessor. Boasting arguably the best Qualcomm processor right now, the titan compares very well to the flagship S8, even outdoing the other device in some regards.
Display & Design
- The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 features a design language comparable to that of the Galaxy S8 Plus. It has curved glass both on the front and rear. At 195 grams, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has to be the bulkiest Note to date. It is both water and dust resistant.
- A humongous 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display offers ample space for content viewing. Images should be super sharp with Quad HD resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels and roughly 521 ppi pixel density. Samsung Galaxy Note 8 also supports an S-Pen that you can use to draw and translate.
- The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 looks to be a photography enthusiast’s favourite. You will notice a dual 12MP setup on the rear. This completes with dual LED, dual tone flash, phase detection autofocus, optical image stabilisation (OIS), and 2X optical zoom. It shoots high quality 4K videos.
- You also get an equally robust 8MP front facing shooter with f/1.7 aperture, Auto HDR and autofocus for selfies. This shoots 2K videos at 30 fps.
