Livestream Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 Unveiling

Why stick with a name which has become synonymous with exploding phones? With the switch to a full-screen display with minimal bezel, Samsung removed the buttons and the fingerprint sensor from the front. The main design elements are borrowed from early flagships, while the device still tries to stick to the square, boxy roots of the Note lineup. The 0.7mm tip is the same size as most ballpoint pens, and the Note 8 is now capable of recognizing up to 4,096 different pressure points.

Coming to the phone, we believe that the Galaxy Note 8 would get 12MP dual setup rear camera with aperture f/1.7 & f/2.4 and optical image stabilization support. But it does make me wonder if there's much of a practical reason for the Note series to be a thing anymore. It will add a virtual layer of information over the real-life scenes, allowing you to interact with the phone and your surroundings in new ways. As a result, the Galaxy Note8 has successfully completed a rigorous series of device and battery safety compatibility test protocols. Trade-in deals will also play a big part in enticing Note customers. The strongest rumors about it is of course it will have a dual camera, it will have infinity display like the Galaxy S8 devices, and it may even use 3D touch.

The back features two 12-megapixel cameras, both fitted with optical image stabilisation and supporting 2x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom.

The wide-angle lens has a Dual Pixel sensor with rapid Auto Focus, so you can capture sharper, clearer shots even in low-light environments.

Samsung has also tweaked the software that kicks in when you slam a Note 8 into the DEX docking station, too.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 looks similar to Galaxy S8 smartphone in terms of design, expect the Galaxy Note 8 is more rectangular in shape.

For example, you could launch your Maps app and choose music for the journey or open a video while chatting with friends or colleagues about it in the screen below. Both it and the smartphone itself are water and dust resistant. The Galaxy Note 8 has been pretty much detailed in every way over the many reports in the past few weeks.

Ever since Samsung rolled out the media invites of the Note 8, the company has been keeping busy in teasing about the device. Both variants would come with 6GB of RAM and 64/128/256GB of internal storage. Switching between them seemed snappy enough, but I'll have to wait until our review unit arrives to really see what Samsung's done here. The artificial intelligence system learns from you the more you use it.

Other than being tall, the Note 8 is still thin and easy to hold. It will be the official successor to the Galaxy Note 7, which injured hundreds of users worldwide due to faulty batteries. The video is called "Do bigger things".
