The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 features a 6.3-inch Infinity display, IP68 certification, 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB and 256 GB of internal storage, dial 12-megapixel camera, and Snapdragon 835. About a year ago, Samsung issued a formal recall for the Note 7 amid widespread reports that the device was prone to spontaneously catching fire and exploding.
Ten years ago, Apple revolutionised the smartphone with the release of the first iPhone.
Samsung's Note series of devices have always been rather innovative in terms of design and it would come as no surprise if the first smartphone with a flexible, foldabledisplay too, would be that of the Samsung Galaxy Note series. It's unclear whether Samsung's 2018 Note will offer similar functionality. However, it will be interesting to see how the consumers react to it after Apple unveils its new phones in next few hours. Despite Dell Streak being the first truly large-screen smartphone, it was the SamsungGalaxy Note, which was the real harbinger of the large-screen smartphone era.
Samsung has finally launched its much awaited Galaxy Note 8 smartphone in India for a whopping price of Rs 67,900. Even with foldable displays alone, there are a number of hurdles to be overcome.
"It is going to be extremely competitive as both will put their marketing might behind their flagships", said Tarun Pathak, senior analyst at Counterpoint Technology Market Research. This is to showcase its new ability to unlike the device using a Face ID that is a biometric method. The Galaxy Note 8 is set to hit shops on September 21, so the timing is perfect. If the company cannot solve these unspecified problems, it will push back the release. This helped the phone in securing a place for itself in the market and even created a whole new product segment - phablets.
