Samsung Galaxy Note 8
The Galaxy Note 7 was one of the most well-received smartphones of 2016 until it wasn't. The phone literally blew it, when faulty battery components started catching on fire. Samsung issued a recall, replaced millions of units, and eventually canceled the phone completely.
Since then, Samsung made major changes to improve the safety of its devices. The Galaxy S8 is one of the best phones of the year, if not the best. They use a new 8-point battery inspection and an entire outside firm for quality control.
Combine all of that with how much buyers love the Note line, Samsung had to bring it back, and they are. Samsung recently confirmed the Galaxy Note 8 launch date is August 23rd. We're hearing a release date is around September 15th. Better late than never, right?
Samsung will employ a bigger 6.3-inch edge-to-edge Infinity display where the sides curve off the body. Making the screen appear as if it's floating with tiny bezels on the top and bottom. Sadly the fingerprint scanner is on the back again, but next to it are two cameras. Yes, the Galaxy Note 8 will match Apple and have dual 13 Megapixel cameras for 2x optical zoom and a great camera experience.
On top of that, we'll see Samsung's most powerful phone to date with new AI features, an improved stylus and 6GB of RAM for true multitasking.
At the end of the day expect the Galaxy Note 8 to feature a beautiful design similar to the Galaxy S8, an S-Pen stylus, everything Note users love and a top-notch camera experience. This is a phone worth waiting for.
Here's how the Note 8 compares to the Pixel XL 2.
