The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is now official. The new smartphone features a 6.3-inch bezel-free AMOLED Infinity Display with a quad HD-plus resolution (2,960 x 1,440) and curves that spill off the sides.
In addition, the Galaxy Note 8 comes with a Snapdragon 835 or Exynos 8895, depending on the market, IP68 water and dust resistance, 64GB of expandable storage (some markets get 128GB or 256GB), fingerprint/face/iris detection, fast wireless charging and DeX dock support. The biggest performance upgrade is 6GB of RAM versus the 4GB of the S8, and you’re looking at a 3,300mAh battery.
However, the main attraction of the phone is its dual camera. Both dual camera comes with 12-megapixel f/1.7 wide-angle cam and a new 12-megapixel f/2.4 telephoto shooter to capture far-off subjects.
