Samsung Galaxy Note8 First Look

Samsung Electronics Singapore introduces the Galaxy Note8. The Galaxy Note8 features a 6.3 inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display, 6GB RAM, IP68 water and dust resistance, 12MP dual cameras.

The Samsung Galaxy Note8 has the biggest screen amongst the Note series but yet a narrower body. With the narrow body and 18:5.9 aspect ratio, Galaxy Note8 feels comfortable to be held in one hand. The display is stunning just like the Galaxy S8 and S8+ launched earlier this year.

The slim Samsung Galaxy Note8 comes in either Midnight Black, Maple Gold and Orchid Gray.

Taking advantage of the longer screen and multi-taking a step further, the Note8 gives you quick access to launch two apps at the same time with just one shortcut. Simply set it up on the Apps Edge.

This time round, Samsung included two two 12MP rear cameras - wide-angle lens and the telephoto lens with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) on both. This means sharper images on both the cameras.

Oh yes! I like the Live Message feature too!

There is also a wide range of accessories to go with the Samsung Galaxy Note8.
