Samsung just totally dissed Apple during the Galaxy Note 8 event

"None of us will ever forget what happened previous year", said Samsung president of mobile communications business DJ Koh.

The Note8 doesn't have far to go to be an improvement over the Note 7, which was recalled after several batches of defective batteries made the devices catch fire or explode.

Once again, Corning Gorilla Glass 5 is used, alongside other common but modern accoutrements such as Bluetooth 5.0, iris scanning, Samsung's Bixby Assistant (yes, the Note 8 has a dedicated Bixby button), USB Type-C and Gigabit LTE. It comes with Samsung Pass to store all your passwords in one place.

Samsung has officially taken the wraps off its worst-kept secret, the Galaxy Note 8. The AMOLED screen on the phone will ensure a sharp image quality. That means the Note 8's screen now measures 6.3 inches diagonally, an increase from the Note 7 and Note 5's 5.7-inch display. "But at the same time, they have no choice but to introduce very innovative features if they want to use the short window of opportunity to differentiate from the upcoming new iPhone this fall".

However unlike the iPhone 7 and HTC U11, Samsung has retained the 3.5mm headphone jack. It includes OIS in both cameras too.

Optical image stabilization is a relatively advanced hardware feature wherein the camera's lens assembly is integrated with a gyro motor. That's a deal that clearly must have worked well for amaysim, because it's also going to offer pre-sales of the freshly announced Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to customers along with a a complimentary phone plan of up to 14GB for six renewals with all pre-sales. Samsung has promised a 15th September release date stateside, and presumably the United Kingdom release will be around the same time.

The S Pen has been a defining accessory of the Note series since 2011, and its latest incarnation offers a smoother writing experience. Even the S-Pen which comes along the phone is water resistant. It's a brand new processing technology, so it'll probably take a while for users to figure out how they can use it best. Not everyone will get to attend the Galaxy Note 8 event at the venue. However much we try and dress it up, this year's Note release has an elephant in the room - the debacle of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

And as you would expect, it has undergone exhaustive testing, including Samsung's rigorous 8-point safety process. With the Galaxy Note8, the enhanced S Pen unlocks entirely new ways to write, draw, and interact with the phone and communicate with friends. You can now play mobile-only games like "Vainglory" on Dex with a monitor, keyboard and mouse hooked up. Wondering how and where to watch the Note 8 event livestream? Samsung has kinda fixed this with the Note; it's within its own "frame" beside the camera.

Aside from that display, the phone has an overall more "boxy" look. It's also the culmination of a trend we've seen from Samsung over the past couple of years: the slow merging of its Galaxy S family with the Note line.

For the in-home support portion of the service, Samsung is relying on a lesser-known logistics startup based out of Los Angeles called HelloTech. There have been rumors of an Emperor Edition Galaxy Note 8 launching in China which features additional RAM and onboard storage but there is yet to be any confirmation of that device.
