When Samsung first launched the Galaxy Note in 2011, it was the first-of-its-kind large-screen device that enabled users to do things they never thought possible with a smartphone. Since then, a community of loyal enthusiasts has emerged through their affinity for the Note’s signature expansive display and versatile S Pen.
Helping users do bigger things, the new Galaxy Note8 features a refined design, an enhanced S Pen, a best-in-class dual camera, and innovative entertainment and productivity capabilities. It’s more than just a smartphone—it’s a device that works the way we live, and empowers us to make things happen.
The S Pen – A New Way to Communicate
With a finer tip, improved pressure sensitivity and new features, the enhanced S Pen of the Galaxy Note8 unlocks entirely new ways to write, draw and interact with the phone and communicate with friends.
A new Live Message feature enables users to create and share customized animated GIFs to better express themselves, while the Screen off memo lets them write up to 100 pages of editable reminders and notes directly on the Galaxy Note8’s off screen. Users can also utilize the improved Translate feature to translate words and sentences as well as convert units and currencies by simply hovering the S Pen over selected text.
Preloaded with the PENUP app, the Galaxy Note8 empowers users to unleash their creativity via a new 200-page digital coloring book.
Moments Up Close and Clear with the Dual Camera
Taking Samsung’s best-in-class camera technology to the next level, the Galaxy Note8 boasts two 12MP rear cameras – one F1.7 wide-angle lens with Dual Pixel technology and one F2.4 telephoto lens – that both utilize Optical Image Stabilization (OIS).
With 2X optical and up to 10X digital zooming capabilities, images are crisp and clear, even when photographing subjects at a far distance. Furthermore, the wide-angle lens has a Dual Pixel sensor with rapid auto-focus, so users can also capture sharper and brighter shots, even in low-light environments.
For added creative control, the new Live Focus feature lets users adjust the intensity of the background blur of an image before and after the photo is taken. In Dual Capture mode, both cameras work simultaneously to capture two separate images – one close-up shot from the telephoto lens and one wide-angle shot that shows the entire background.
The Galaxy Note8 is also equipped with an industry-leading F1.7 8MP autofocus front-facing camera for the sharpest selfies and video chats.
