For those unaware, Samsung launched Galaxy Note 8 in September last year in India. Successor to the last year’s ill-fated Galaxy Note 7, Note 8 is the first smartphone from the company to sport a dual rear camera setup. The smartphone runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system and is powered by octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 sports a 6.3-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED ‘Infinity’ display with 2960×1440. This is the same Infinity display which the company used its Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones.
The device comes with 6GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage which can be expanded further using a microSD card. It comes equipped with fingerprint sensor, facial recognition and iris scanner along with this it also offers support for Samsung Pay. The smartphone sports a dual-rear camera setup with two 12MP modules. The first one is a wide angled lens with f/1.7 aperture, the secondary camera includes a telephoto zoom lens with f/2.4 aperture. The front is home to an 8MP selfie shooter with f/1.7 aperture.
The company claims that both the cameras come with Optical Image Stabiliser. The camera also offers a Dual Capture mode wherein both rear cameras take two pictures simultaneously. Along with this, the users can save both the images: One close-up shot from the telephoto lens and one wide-angle shot that show the entire background.
The smartphone also has the company’s home-brewed Bixby digital assistant, rival to Apple Siri and Microsoft Cortana. The manufacturer claims that Bixby can do much more than its rivals, including being able to handle any smartphone-related task that is managed by touch.
