Up From the Ashes: Samsung Unveils Successor to Note 7 Phone

Up From the Ashes: Samsung Unveils Successor to Note 7 Phone

The upcoming smartphone is rumored to resemble Samsung Galaxy S8 in plenty of ways. It is generally believed that this Apple handset will retail at a price tag in excess of $1,000 in the United States, meaning that Samsung could gain something of an advantage by setting the Galaxy Note 8 at an RRP of $900.

Low said the Note 8's smaller battery and eight-point safety check are also an effort to reassure consumers.

It's worth noting that all major carriers and pretty much anywhere you pre-order the Galaxy Note 8 is offering the deal mentioned above.

Following the trend set by Samsung earlier this year with the Galaxy S8 and S8+, the Galaxy Note 8 has been made as bezel-less as possible. But the Note 8 has a lot of features that the iPhone 7 Plus doesn't have, so you are getting your money's worth.

The Galaxy Note8 packs a massive screen, a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2,960 by 1,440 that has an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. They also offer Always-On display but its functionality is improving by the software updates.

The Note 8 comes out into the markets with a 6.3 inched QHD+ SuperAMOLED display. According to Health Canada, Samsung sold or distributed 39,000 Note 7 smartphones before it was forced to recall the device a second time. It is the first Samsung smartphone to sport dual camera setup and also the world's first smartphone to come with dual OIS. The new Galaxy Note 8 is the first in the series to come packing one of the growingly popular dual lens camera systems.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will feature Bixby which not only helps you to take a photo or call a cab without touching the screen, it can also translate live via your camera feed. The primary camera is a wide-angle lens supporting dual photodiode (2PD), while the secondary camera acts as a telephoto lens.

While we can't comment on the battery life of the devices without hands-on testing, let's look at the battery specifications and new technologies. The new smartphone comes with tons of new features and performance improvements that should please the loyal Note fans who have really missed using the previous and impressive Galaxy Note7 device. Every single pre-order is eligible for the free Gear 360 camera or the Samsung bundle with a microSD card and wireless charging stand. It looks the same as what we've been seeing in the renders, and it even looks like the Galaxy S8 duo. Yikes! For comparison, the iPhone 7 Plus starts at $770.

One other feature that WIRED liked was a new app pairing ability, which lets you launch two commonly used apps together at once, with both displayed split-screen in landscape and portrait. Like past releases, we have wireless charging, an S-Pen stylus, IP68 dust and water resistance and much more.

With 6GB RAM, a 10nm processor and expandable memory of 256GB, it is a phone that, when coupled with Samsung's DeX dock, keyboard, and monitor, could make you question whether you even need a laptop.
