Samsung Galaxy Note 8 debuts in India

Samsung has launched its flagship Galaxy Note 8 smartphone in India. Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is priced at Rs 67,900 and will go on sale on September 21.

Those interested can pre-book the device across selected retail stores and also online exclusively on Samsung Shop and Amazon India. It will be available in two colour options: Midnight Black and Maple Gold.

As part of the introductory offer, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 users can get a one-time screen replacement, and a free convertible wireless charger.

There’s a special launch offer of Rs 4,000 cash back for HDFC Credit Card users as well.

The Galaxy Note 8 is also the first Samsung phone to have a dual camera system on the back.

The Galaxy Note 8 essentially uses two 12MP shooters, one of which offers f/2.4 telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom feature. The secondary lens has an aperture of f/1.7 , and both benefit from Optical Image Stabilization (OIS).

There’s an 8-megapixel camera in the front. The flagship phone comes with Live Focus, a feature that uses both cameras to create depth-of-field bokeh effects.

The Galaxy Note 8 comes the same curved screen found on the Galaxy S8 series and made it even bigger at 6.3-inches. This is Samsung’s largest ever screen on a Note device ever.

The company likes to call it an “Infinity Display”, as it completely dominates the front of the display.

The screen has a Quad HD+ (2960 x 1440) resolution, and the phone includes the same 18:5:9 aspect ratio found on the Galaxy S8s series.

You will also find the S-Pen stylus tucked inside the base of the phone. The company says the S-Pen is more accurate and features a waterproof design.

Samsung is only bringing the Galaxy Note 8 with 64GB storage. A microSD card slot is available for memory expansion.

The Note 8 also has IP68 water resistance, Iris scanner, a headphone jack, and support for wireless charging.
