Samsung has rather chosen an unusual day (iPhone day!) but the company today announced its latest flagship phone for the Indian market. The Galaxy Note8 that has been on pre-registration will finally be available from September 21 to early buyers.
The Galaxy Note8 is essentially the Galaxy S8 with a dual camera setup at the back. The device is IP68 certified, which means it is water and dust resistant and packs in two OIS-enabled 12 megapixel cameras at the back with a wide-angle and a telephoto lens that allows to take shots with bokeh effect. The dual camera mode takes two pictures simultaneously – one wide-angle and another telephoto and allows to edit the background blur during or after you’ve clicked a picture. The front has an 8 megapixel sensor for selfies.
On the hardware side, the Android Nougat running phone features a 6.3-inch Quad HD+ (2960×1440) display, quad-core 10nm Exynos processor, 6GB LPDDR4 RAM, 64/128/256GB internal storage, 3300mAh battery, NFC, MST, microSD card slot and dual SIM support. The phone also boasts an improved S Pen support, fast wireless charging, iris and fingerprint scanning, Bixby and DeX support.
The phone will retail from Rs. 67,900 and users will get Samsung convertible fast charger and one-time screen replacement for limited time.
