Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with 6GB RAM and 12MP Dual-Camera Announced

   The Samsung Note 8 will cost $1599 and go on sale in New Zealand on September 22

Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac (2.4/5GHz), VHT80 MU-MIMO, Bluetooth v 5.0 (LE up to 2Mbps), GPS with GLONASS, USB Type-C 3.1, NFC, MST. And yes, the phone is IP68 certified.

The new phone will give you a 6.3-inch display with Quad HD+ resolution, but with a 18.5:9 aspect, so it's still easily manageable one-handed. Sharing screens while video chatting are also possible using the phablet. The phone features a Snapdragon 835 processor (Exynos 8895 in some regions), along with 6GB of RAM.

Samsung has decreased the battery capacity to 3300mAh when compared to the 3500mAh unit seen on the S8+ and Galaxy Note 7.

Of course the big question is the failing point of the Note 7 - the battery. The camera comes with a new feature called Dual Capture which takes a zoomed as well as a widescreen shot simultaneously. In the United States, the phablet will be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 835 chipset clocked at 2.35 GHz.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 launches in the UK and it's bigger and better than before

The Galaxy Note 8 launch comes a few weeks ahead of the Apple's iPhone 8, which as per some reports could be launched in the month of October. It includes OIS in both cameras too. Other than that the Live Focus mode will let you adjust the blur effect in real-time. At the front there is an 8MP f/1.7 aperture shooter.

How much do you save? The S Pen Translate too has been improved to translate entire sentences in up to 71 languages. The S-Pen is now smarter than ever before. Given that there's no real competitor to the S Pen in the smartphone market, the Note 8 is your best bet for a stylus equipped smartphone. Samsung says it has a revamped battery testing process in place to make certain of that.

Additionally, Samsung has also announced App Pair which allows you to launch two apps at the same time side by side for seamless multi-tasking. It aims to make full use of the phone's large screen to increase productivity. There is also a dedicated Bixby key on the Note8.

Samsung will start taking pre-orders for the Note 8 beginning Thursday, Aug. 24 and it will officially go on sale September 15 via their website and through all four major wireless providers. Full retail price for the Note 8 will be $930.
