Oreo Update for Galaxy S8, S8+ Under Development at Samsung

Pretend You've Got a New iPhone X With These iOS 11 Wallpapers

Pre-bookings have now opened in India too.

Samsung launched its new big-screen Note phablet, aka the Galaxy Note 8, in India on Tuesday at a price of Rs 67,900. There is a subtle difference, however, in that the Galaxy Note 8 is a little less curvy than the Galaxy S8/Galaxy S8+.

Remember this when you read breathless reports in coming days and months about Apple's latest gadgets: The fortunes of the world's most valuable public company are highly sensitive to the unpredictable habits of hundreds of millions of iPhone owners. Samsung has added some new S-Pen features and improved upon the existing ones with the latest version of its custom skin.

Samsung has launched the Galaxy Note 8 in India.

Michael Fisher aka Mr Mobile is impressed with the cameras, but with a few minor caveats.

Samsung Galaxy A5 was released last year and now it is finally receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat upgrade. Analysts said mass-producing a foldable phone with top tech features and a thin body will take time.

As part of an introductory offer, the company is giving a best buying offer for the Galaxy Note 8 buyers.

Samsung may come up with beta testing program for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones. Google Pixel proves to be most affordable, undercutting the Note 8 by at least $200. Samsung's Note 8 goes for $950. It came with a Quad-HD screen resolution and allowed users to manually change the screen's resolution to HD and Full-HD as well, to conserve battery.

The update to the Note series comes after an usually long wait. And so dismissing it entirely is a mistake.

To recall the pricing, the device retails in the US for around $950 (INR 60,000) without any contract, so, one can expect the price in India to be around INR 65,000 to 70,000. While some are calling the $1000 tag too pricey, others are already lining up to get their hands on the new phones three weeks ahead of the expected release date. This causes adjustment and placement issues.

Features like virtual 5.1 surround sound speakers, a 4K display and a bezel-less design can be found on Android phones and are fantastic - but are on different devices.

"The utility value of these products is so, so high", said Horace Dediu, an industry analyst at Asymco and a former Nokia Corp. business development executive. It is not an outright deterrent. There is a hybrid SIM card slot too, which will allow you to further expand the storage. It would be more responding than the previous one.

Edge-to-Edge display, facial recognition, wireless charging? That is also the date when it will be on shelves. "You keep it with you 22 hours a day".

It offers a very bright picture with amazingly vivid colors and a perfect color accuracy.

Upon the device's release, Strike will launch a range of Note 8 cradles that accommodate Samsung, OtterBox and LifeProof ruggedized cases.

This trend is not good for Apple.

Obviously, the first thing is that all-display screen for starters. The Note8 is apparently Samsung's first flagship smartphone to come with dual lenses. As for the front-facing unit, Samsung has gone in for an 8 MP, f/1.7 aperture unit that also features autofocus.

The Galaxy S8 also has a multi-image photo processing capability recently introduced by Samsung Electronics.

New Virtual AssistantMeet Bixby! Apart from these high-end specs, the device also features a dedicated button for the company's Bixby personal AI assistant. Will it still be able to offer great value to customers? "We have confirmed unchanged love and support for the Note series". It is also IP68 certified which makes the phone dust and water resistant.
