The newest member of the Samsung Note family is the Galaxy Note8. The Galaxy Note8 has advanced with technology in many ways. It's Infinity Display has a near bezel-less, 6.3" full-frontal glass, edge-to-edge screen so you can see more and do more while your device sits perfectly in your hand. The bigger screen allows you to take advantage of the uses of the S Pen when taking notes, writing messages, selecting text or expressing your creative side with the Samsung Notes feature or PENUP App. The bigger screen also allows you to have dual apps open at the same time so you can do more in your everyday. Available in Australia in Midnight Black or Maple Gold, the Galaxy Note8 is water and dust resistant, so you don't have to put your creativity on hold because of the weather.
The Galaxy Note8 has dual cameras with 2X optical zoom and dual image stabilization (OIS), live focus and dual capture. The dual image stabilization helps to make sure your photos come out perfectly steady, even if your hands are a bit shaky or you're trying to capture that perfect moment while travelling. The live focus allows you to adjust the depth of field of your photos so your subject is the centre of attention. What this means is, before you press the shutter function, both of the cameras work together to determine your foreground subject, and the live focus allows you to blur out the background. Pretty cool, huh? Dual Capture gives you the option to photograph what's happening outside the frame as well, so you can capture more of the moments you're enjoying right in front of you. It also takes brilliant photos in low light conditions and features creative modes such as food mode, pro mode and slow motion so your creativity never has to stop.
The S Pen allows you to communicate and utilise your screen in ways only other smartphone users dream about. Hand draw your own messages to friends, use the smart select to create your own GIFs by selecting a section of a video, take notes, write memos or simply have the ease of selecting a section of text. The S Pen has a 0.7mm fine tip (where the Galaxy Note5 version was 1.6mm) with 4096 pressure levels for all the precision you need whether you're note-taking or sketching.
If you need your phone to connect with every other aspect of your life, the Galaxy Note8 allows you to connect with the DeX Station to use your phone as a desktop PC, or you can request information at your fingertips, connect with everything around you or simply share photos with a simple command with the help of your own personal assistant - Bixby. Let's go through these features a little, shall we? Let's start with Bixby. Bixby is basically the personal assistant you've always wanted. You can talk to Bixby and tell it what you would like to do, type an action or select a suggested one. Whether it be to make a call to someone, find something in your phone for you or set an alarm or reminder for later, you can wake up Bixby with the push of a button on the side of your phone and get assistance instantly. One of the coolest features of Bixby is its Vision function. If you're a person who loves to travel, but might not always understand the languages of the countries you're visiting, Bixby can identify landmarks or translate languages just by looking through your camera! You won't ever be stuck wondering what kind of restaurants are around you because you can't read the signs or craving for more information about a landmark that only a tour guide might give you - Bixby has it all. The DeX Station, on the other hand, is definitely for the people who use their phones across work or study and need it all together. This device is sold separately, however, it lets you connect your Galaxy Note8 to a monitor, keyboard and mouse for that desktop experience. Access everything on your phone while enjoying the big screen of a monitor and work faster with a full sized keyboard and mouse - simply plug your phone into the DeX Station and away you go!
When it comes to security, the Galaxy Note8 features biometric authentication so you can unlock your phone with your eyes, face, or the press of a finger. Samsung Knox is also there to help protect your biometric data and safeguard what's on your phone, so you can choose how you want to unlock your phone and be rest assured that what's on it is safe. Its powerful performance is backed by a 10nm mobile processor with 6GB RAM, Gigabit LTE and Gigabit Wi-Fi for great speed connection, Vulkan API gaming capabilities, quality sound and the ability to charge wirelessly. Without having to wish it was possible, Samsung has also included the ability to expand memory up to 256GB with a microSD card. How awesome is that?
