Samsung's latest Infinity Display flagship smartphone is a Galaxy Note fan's dream - it is larger, "Note-ier" with the S-Pen, and you don't have to wait that long before you can get your hands on one.
It is Samsung's first smart device to feature dual cameras, with a 12 megapixel rear-mounted camera featuring zoom-in and telescopic functions.

The phone has been launched as "Super AMOLED" having a resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels. It comes with a 18.5:9 aspect ratio as well. There are three other colors available, Orchid Gray, Maple Gold, and Deep Sea Blue. Under the hood, the Galaxy Note 8 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa core processor with 6GB RAM.
