The highly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has finally been unveiled and the South Korean company has packed the smartphone with a wide array of features. Here are 4 notable features on the latest flagship smartphone that are worth highlighting:
6.3-inch “Infinity Display” Screen
Measuring 6.3 inches, the screen is the largest thus far on a Galaxy Note device. Following in the footsteps of its Galaxy S8 cousins which were released earlier in the year, the Note 8 also sports the “Infinity Display” layout for its screen. For the benefit of those who do not know what is so unique about this layout, it is designed so that the screen runs edge to edge and almost takes up the front of the device completely. This enlarged display enables users to maximise the phone’s features like using the split screen function and writing with the S Pen stylus.
Dual Camera Setup
Another design aesthetic that has become increasingly popular amongst the newer and upcoming flagships is the dual rear camera setup. The Galaxy Note 8 is the first Samsung phone to feature two rear cameras. Both cameras are equipped with optical image stabilization which enable users to snap clear photos even when their hands are shaky.
S Pen Stylus
The S Pen Stylus is one of the main features that differentiates the Note 8 from other smartphones in the market, so it is apparent why Samsung wants to boost its functionality on this device. Some of the uses of the S Pen stylus enabling users to scribble quick reminders on the phone’s lock screen and translating text on the go.
The Galaxy Note 8 also comes pre-installed with Bixby, Samsung’s virtual digital assistant. Bixby can be activated via voice command and Samsung is looking to continually add more features to Bixby soon.
