Samsung back in a blaze of glory with Galaxy Note 8 launch

The front camera is 8 megapixels. Things get even better though since Galaxy Note 8's processor is bundled with the whopping amount of 6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB/256GB of expandable storage space. Last year's ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 also started above $800, as did this year's Galaxy S8 Plus.

Samsung DeX support is also included, when means when the Galaxy Note 8 is docked, it will offer a desktop experience. We will update this feature once we have reviewed the Note 8 in full to let you know how all those numbers perform in real life use. They are made from glass and metal, with curved backs and displays.

Some analysts have suggested the new phone could also feature the S8's edge-to-edge screen, known as the Infinity Display. It's created to accommodate the larger phone, while supporting Samsung's recently-unveiled wireless controller that promises a sub-20ms sensor latency. Other regions and carriers will vary, but check out the hands on in the video below! The Note 8 features an Infinity Display, which renders bezels almost invisible for the smartphone.

The S-Pen has 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity, making it accurate enough for intricate drawing and writing. We've got a lot of great devices lined up from a lot of manufacturers. Observers said that Samsung needed to increase the size of the display to accommodate the stylus, which didn't come with the Galaxy S8 smartphone. But rather than ditch a fingerprint sensor, Samsung has opted to move it to the rear panel next to its cameras. Instead of gathering depth information and throwing away the photo, the Note 8 saves both photos. That being said, how does the Note 8 compare to its older Note siblings?

As for the specs, the Note 8 comes with the Infinity Display in a lovely 6.4-inch SuperAMOLED fashion. Samsung's success selling the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus has been testament to that. But customers may choose to wait until the iPhone 8 and Google Pixel 2 announcements, which could badly hurt the Galaxy Note 8 sales during the launch month. And the smartphone has three different storage options - 64GB, 128GB and 256GB - along with microSD card expansion. The screen is Super AMOLED with a resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels. These are the best displays on the market, without doubt. The dual, 12-megapixel cameras have a f/1.7 and f/2.4 aperture, that allow for a whole host of digital photography tricks.

And as for that exploding battery issue, Samsung says it will continue to commit to industry-leading safety initiatives. Plus, it has a 3300mAh battery and wireless charging capabilities.

So what about the Note 8 battery then? A constant flow of deals and discounts around the flagship Samsung smartphone has meant that United States customers have been able to get it for as much as $200 off the headline price relatively often.
