Singapore – 24 August 2017 – Samsung Electronics Singapore introduces the Galaxy Note8. With the Galaxy Note8, Samsung claims that consumers can get a bigger Infinity Display that fits comfortably in one hand, an enhanced S Pen that allows communication in a more personal ways, and improved camera for better photo experience.
Enjoy and Do More on the Infinity Display
Featuring a 6.3-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display that allows users to see more and scroll less, the Galaxy Note8 has the biggest screen ever on a Note device, yet its narrow body makes it comfortable to hold in one hand. With the new Galaxy Note8, users are equipped with more room to watch, read and draw—making it the ultimate multitasking smartphone.
Live Messaging with Enhance S Pen
Samsung introduces Live Messaging that allows users to create animated messages and this works on any apps that supported animated GIF files.
Better Pictures with Galaxy Note8’s Camera
The Galaxy Note8 is equipped with two 12MP rear cameras with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) on both the wide-angle lens and the telephoto lens. Whether users are exploring a new city or running around their backyard, OIS allows them to capture sharper images.
For more advanced photo-taking, the Galaxy Note8’s Live Focus feature lets users control the depth of field by allowing them to adjust the bokeh effect in preview mode and after they take the photo.
In Dual Capture mode, both rear cameras take two pictures simultaneously and allow users to save both images; one close-up shot from the telephoto lens and one wide-angle shot that shows the entire background.
The wide-angle lens has a Dual Pixel sensor with rapid Auto Focus, so that users can capture sharper, clearer shots, even in low-light environments. The Galaxy Note8 is also equipped with an industry-leading 8MP Smart Auto Focus front-facing camera for sharp selfies and video.
