Unlocked Samsung Note 8 UK pre-orders starting from today and will start shipping in the month of September. Let’s look at some of the top features of the Galaxy Note 8 that are really in the running to give tough competition to upcoming devices.
1. Infinity Display
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 boasts a larger 6.3-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED Infinity Display and this is the biggest yet. The screen on the Note 8 is over half an inch larger than its predecessor. Samsung claims that this is done mainly to allow users to make the most of the split screen features, and the live messages feature of the S Pen.
2. Dual Rear Camera with OIS
Samsung finally introduced dual camera system on its flagship device and it has dual 12-megapixel sensors – one with a wide-angle lens, dual pixel autofocus, and a f/1.7 aperture, while the other is a telephoto lens with a f/2.4 aperture that allows you to get up to 2x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom.
The company claims that this is the first setup which comes with optical image stabilization on both the sensors at the back. Calling it ‘Live Focus’, a depth-of-field Bokeh effect and Portrait mode has been introduced which means you can now procure those blurry background selfies. Furthermore, the density of blur can also be adjusted to your liking – before or after you take the picture.
3. S Pen
Samsung has integrated a few new features into the S Pen stylus. The main highlight was a feature called Live Messages which essentially lets users draw an animated sketch and send it to any app. It essentially is a GIF maker, which turns your drawing into an animated GIF and then lets you share it to any app that supports GIF.
There’s also a live translate feature that translates any foreign language text to your smartphone’s default language just by hovering the S Pen over it. It also converts currency in the same way. The other feature mentioned in the keynote was that users could write on the lock screen itself, allowing them to create reminders or quick notes without opening apps or even pressing any button on the smartphone.
4. Expansion of DeX
With the launch of the Galaxy Note 8, Samsung has expanded the app catalog that expands on the large screen with DeX Labs. This program now allows the majority of apps to go full-screen when the Galaxy Note 8 is connected to the docking station.
5. App Pairing
One other feature that caught our attention was App Pairing. It essentially allows users to launch two apps together in multi-window. You can create an app pair in App Edge or on your home screen, and then launch them together in split screen mode whenever you prefer. You can now pair two of your most used apps, and simultaneously launch them quickly to get work done easily.
