The name Samsung has grown so much over the years that it has now become synonymous with quality and class! Every new launch brings the feeling of excitement to its loyal customers, want to other brand’s consumers, and shivers to its competitors!
And now, when we thought there are no more tricks under sleeves, they’ve surprised us and released their best smartphone yet… The Galaxy Note 8!
It was launched at a Samsung event today with a much fanfare and a lot of promised features we just can’t can wait to explore.
Undeterred by the battery catastrophe that led to a complete recall and effective cancellation of the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung unveiled its successor in all its beautifully crafted 6.3-inch squarish glory. This device boasts of a lot of software and hardware goodies for the end user!
The Galaxy Note 8 is truly here, and Samsung is hopeful that consumers who appreciate the Note’s features and its signature stylus will be willing to give the brand another chance after months of hearing warnings aboard airplanes and other public transit about the dangers and potential for destruction posed by the previously recalled smartphone. The name hasn’t changed. It is a Galaxy Note through and through, and it’s definitely the nicest one Samsung has ever made!
Now comparing the Note with the previous flagship – The Galaxy S8, It is quite bigger in size, on the back, there’s Samsung’s first dual camera design, pairing a wide angle camera to a telephoto one with a powerful 2x optical zoom technology. Both have optical image stabilization (that prevents your picture shoots from looking blurred even if you got really shaky hands) which is a first from the OEM, so you bet there have been major improvements to that! The Note 8 has a more squared-off design, which leaves a bit more room internally for storage of the Note line’s trademark S-Pen stylus, itself another addition over the S8.
