Specs of the Note 8

The device comes with a Snapdragon 835 chip that combines 6GB of RAM with 64GB of storage that is expandable. On the side of water resistance, the device comes with IP68 water & dust resistance. A fingerprint scanner, as well as an iris scanner, is present with a 3300 mAh battery to power you through the day.

Design of the Note 8

The Note 8 features a large 6.3-inch display that is a tad bit larger than the S8 Plus. The smartphone has a different design to the S series. Instead of the rounded and curved edges, the Note goes for square and flat edges. When it’s combined with the Infinity display, it gives an awkward design. It has minimal bezels and the fingerprint scanner sits right next to the camera. The position of the fingerprint scanner is due to the need to accommodate the Infinity Display.

Display of the Note 8

The resolution of the display is 2960 x 1440. Crowned the best mobile display currently, Samsung offers a maximum brightness of 1200 nits. This should be ideal for outdoor viewing. It’s also certified by the UHD Alliance as a Mobile HDR Premium device.

Camera of the Note 8

Two 12 MP cameras are included that are sure to offer wonderful bokeh pictures. The camera app comes with a host of new features such as Live Focus and delivers sharp and crisp pictures. Not only does the device offer plenty of pro-level settings, but the camera operates quickly. Auto focus is fast, while pictures are snapped in the blink of an eye.
