Gilroy said that Samsung had taken innovative mobile experiences into its newest phone – including Samsung DeX, the company's station accessory that helps transform the smartphone into an Android-powered desktop computer.
The Galaxy Note8 has improved camera features. On the back of the phone, the Note8 has two 12-megapixel cameras with optical image stabilization on both the wide-angle and telephoto lenses. That allows users to control the depth of the field and take both a close-up and wide-angle picture simultaneously. On the front the phone, there's an 8-megapixel camera with "smart" autofocus.
“We appreciate the relentless passion of the Note community. They’ve been a constant inspiration to us, and we designed the new Note for them,” said DJ Koh, president of Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics, in a statement. “From the Infinity Display to the new and improved S Pen, to the powerful dual camera, Note8 lets people do things they never thought were possible.”
Samsung will begin taking orders for the Galaxy Note8 on August 24.
