Today Samsung has provided us with official details on its all-new Galaxy Note 8. Ultimately, the phone is designed to accommodate the way consumers lead their lives and lean on technology today. The Note 8, which boasts Samsung’s best-ever smartphone camera, now welcomes a bigger Infinity Display that still fits comfortably in one hand, while coming equipped with the S Pen to communicate in more personal ways.

“We appreciate the relentless passion of the Note community. They’ve been a constant inspiration to us, and we designed the new Note for them,” said DJ Koh, president of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “From the Infinity Display to the enhanced S Pen, to the powerful Dual Camera, Note8 lets people do things they never thought were possible.”

Thanks to the aforementioned 6.3-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display, the Note 8 allows you to see more while scrolling less. Multitasking is also easier than it’s ever been with the new App Pair feature, letting users create a custom pairing of most apps on the Edge panel that will simultaneously launch two apps in Multi Window mode. For example, you can watch a video while messaging friends or take part in a conference call with your notes and agenda directly in front of you.

With the Galaxy Note 8, the S Pen includes a finer tip and improved pressure sensitivity 3, thus unlocking new ways to write, draw and interact with the device. During Live Messages, you can then showcase your personality and creative vision.

As mentioned previously, the Note 8 has Samsung’s most impressive smartphone camera ever. The first to boast two 12MP rear cameras with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) on both the wide-angle and telephoto lenses, Live Focus in turn allows you to control the depth of field. In Dual Capture mode, both rear cameras take two pictures simultaneously. On the front-facing end, the phone welcomes a 8MP Smart Auto Focus camera.

Additional design aspects and features for Samsung’s new Note phone include water and dust-resistant coating, speedy wireless charging, updated security, 6GB RAM, a 10 nm processor, and 64GB of storage and expandable memory.

Stateside, the Galaxy Note 8 will be optioned in Midnight Black and Orchid Gray for carrier and Unlocked by Samsung versions. AT&T, C Spire, Cricket Wireless, Sprint, Straight Talk Wireless, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, Verizon Wireless and Xfinity Mobile will then carry the Note 8 beginning September 15 of this year. Pre-orders are open August 24 with prices ranging from $930 USD to $960 USD.
