Samsung Galaxy Note 8 features

  • 6.3″ sAMOLED infinity display with symmetrical metal sides that blend effortlessly for a seamless look.
  • One-click Dual App launch for easy multi-tasking
  • Integrated S-Pen to capture key notes even when the home screen is off.

  • A PA in your pocket, thanks to a one-stop dashboard combining Hello Bixby and Reminder
  • IP68-rated Water and dust resistant
  • 4G Super-Voice

Given the history of the Note brand in the past year, Samsung was never going to do anything particularly daring with the Galaxy Note 8. Add this to Samsung’s general dominance of the high-end smart phone market, and the steady convergence of the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note lines over time, and the Note 8 was always going to be a “predictable” product.

Like all recent Samsung phones, the Note 8 is a gorgeous slab of curved metal and glass. It looks a lot like the S8, but it’s more straight-edged – more businesslike – and the curved screen is steeper to aid S-Pen note-taking. The Infinity Display is even bigger at 6.3 inches, and it continues to make bezel-heavy devices feel old-fashioned by comparison.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 features a metal and glass sandwich design that measures 162.5 x 74.8 x 8.6mm, weighs 195g and comes complete with IP68 water and dust resistance. The front of the handset is predominately screen, with a dual-edge design and very slim bezels, while the rear has a dual-camera horizontal setup with fingerprint sensor positioned to the right of the lenses and a flash module in-between. There is USB Type-C and a built-in S Pen stylus at the bottom, a 3.5mm headphone jack at the top and a dedicated Bixby button on the left edge.

Clear and steady photos even in low light

Get crisp photos even when it’s dark and it’s difficult to keep your phone steady. The Galaxy Note8’s dual camera comes with great low-light capabilities that you’ve come to expect from Galaxy phones, while the telephoto lens gives you 2x optical zoom for you to capture the near and far. Both have optical image stabilisation so you get steady shots even when zoomed in.

Do more with the high-performing phone

Whether you’re downloading games or multitasking, it’s fast and seamless on the Galaxy Note8, because the high-performing 10nm mobile processor and 6GB RAM make things run smoothly. Plus, with wireless charging capabilities, power is on your side.

Connect to a bigger world with Phone+

The Galaxy Note8 is your portal to a new world when connected to this range of devices and interfaces. It’s a world where boundaries are pushed and barriers broken, so you can see more, share more, and do a whole lot more effortlessly.

INFINITY DISPLAY – MOBILE ENTERTAINMENT, SUPERSIZED

Whether you’re making a video call, browsing the web or watching your favourite Netflix series, the Note8’s dazzling 6.3” dual-curved Infinity Display takes smartphone design to bold new heights. Combined with the latest Gorilla Glass 5, you’re also more protected against drops and screen-cracks than ever before. And with a powerful Octa-core 64-bit processor – working hand-in-hand with EE’s superfast 4G network – you’ll never be left playing catch-up.

NEW, IMPROVED S PEN – BE READY WHEN INSPIRATION STRIKES

Put pen to virtual paper with the newly-enhanced S Pen, now with greater sensitivity and a thinner tip for heightened precision. Not down memos when inspiration strikes. Make light work of lengthy documents, with speedier scrolling and easy, accurate data entry. And with 4,096 separate pressure points across the screen, you can now also create genuine works of art in the palm of your hand.

DUAL CAMERA – PIXEL PERFECT, EVERY TIME

With the Note8’s dual wide-angle 12MP camera, you can capture stunning scenery and life’s memorable moments in super-sharp resolution. You can even flip it around to take the ultimate selfie with its state-of-the-art 8MP front-facing lens, then instantly share it on social media. Or why not save it for later? With 64GB of memory, you’re not likely to run out of room any time soon.

INTRODUCING BIXBY – YOUR BRAND NEW ASSISTANT

Take the stress out of life-admin with your very own personal assistant, on call, 24 hours a day. Use voice, text or touch and put Bixby to work – setting reminders, checking your daily schedule and accessing your favourite apps. Change the way you search for good; just point the camera and Bixby will discover more about a product or place without you having to type. And the more you use Bixby, the better it gets at helping you out, just when you need it.

DEX STATION – TURN YOUR PHONE INTO A DESKTOP

Use a keyboard and mouse to send emails, edit Word docs, copy and paste between apps and finish off that PowerPoint presentation – meaning you can leave the laptop at work and still be ready for those unexpected requests. Then just undock the Note8 and pop it in your pocket when you’re done. Simple.
