Samsung To Announce The New Gear S Smartwatch On August 30th At IFA
The competitive scenario this time is entirely different from previous year when the Galaxy Note 7 debuted. Additionally, you can also head to the official website to watch the live-stream.
When it comes to the devices' dimensions, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is smaller (148 x 68.1 x 8mm), while the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is the bigger version (159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1mm). That's one of the biggest devices on the market and the biggest of all the Note devices before it. The new phablet features a 6.3-inch, bezel-less display, carried over from the S8 and S8+, and it truly does look stunning - 83.1 percent of this device is screen, and it shows. By October, Samsung halted production of the Note 7 entirely.
We'll update you as soon as the handset is officially released.
The Note series first appeared in 2011. The S Pen will also help the Globetrotter crowd by allowing them to translate entire sentences (and currencies) simply by hovering over the text string.
After all, the last thing the company - or Note fans for that matter - want is a repeat of last year's disastrous recall. Reliable tipster Evan Blass has now taken his Twitter account to reveal a new color variant of the phablet.
Both these phones are stunning pieces of technology. There's also an S-Pen that is seen on the image. You can also spot the horizontal dual camera setup at the back while the fingerprint scanner is located right at the top centre at the back.
The Note8 uses essentially the same absolutely incredible display panel as the S8 and S8+, albeit with a sharper edge curve (to maximize writing surface area), it has the same front-facing camera, the same old Quick Charge 2.0, the same fingerprint reader in the same location (ugh), and the same hardware button layout, including a Bixby key. One other colour - Deepsea Blue - will be forthcoming. The primary lens has a f/1.7 aperture width while the telephoto lens has a f/2.4 aerture width. While some other reports hints at 3X zoom dual cameras. This teaser is clearly indicates a better S-Pen may be expected to arrive this year along with the Galaxy Note 8.
You can tell both of these phones have been designed by Samsung and even though they are very similar, there are some minor changes that point to who Samsung is aiming the devices at. Chances are that only the U.S. variant of the phone will come with Snapdragon 835 chip.
At the heart of the Galaxy Note 8 runs the 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core SoC paired with 6GB of RAM and 64GB onboard storage. It is expected to be backed up by a 3300mAh battery.
While anticipation for these smartphones could affect the Galaxy Note 8 sales to some extent, a lot will depend on how Samsung will reassure consumers that the Note 8 is safe and reliable.
I've been looking at the $930 starting price for the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8, scratching my head in bewilderment, looking at that price again, and furrowing my brows.
