Indian users trust Samsung even after Galaxy Note 7 debacle

Indian users trust Samsung even after Galaxy Note 7 debacle

The device (we experienced Maple Gold one) comes with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal memory (expandable up to 256GB). There was also HDR-mode for videos. Though there is no official information about the exact specifications of the camera setup, it is expected that there will be two 12MP sensors with a wide-angle camera sensor with a f/1.7 aperture and a telephoto lens with f/2.4 aperture.

The Galaxy Note 7 is dead. So, one could expect that the Galaxy Note 8 could be priced between 69,990 to Rs 74,990. The launch of Note 8 also becomes significant given the fact that Samsung's last release - the Galaxy S8 - received a lukewarm reception in the market.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 also comes along with Bixby, the latest voice assistant feature included with the phone. The phone comes with IP68 certification, which makes it dust and water resistant.

The "Always On Display" allows Galaxy users to stay on top of their notifications without unlocking their phone.

You will need to wait for few more days before you grab a Note 8. This is so that users can make best use of the S-Pen's note-taking capabilities on a relatively flatter surface, according to Samsung. It won't be a walk in the park for the iPhone 8 since the Note 8 is already running rampant on the sales front. The device comes with an edge-to-edge screen and the home button is embedded under the screen.

The iPhone X's unique design allows Apple to take on its Android rivals such as Samsung and LG, while with iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, Apple is planning to keep happy its core fans who do not like drastic design changes in the iPhones. The Galaxy Note 8, because it has nearly no bezels, occupies a much smaller footprint - size as well as girth - in comparison to a regular 6-inch phone. On to the display, the device features a massive 6.3 inch Super AMOLED panel sandwiched between the Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It has a finer tip, improved pressure sensitivity, and features that enable users to express themselves in ways that no other stylus or smartphone ever has.

After an absence of more than a year, Samsung's Note lineup has a worthy successor. Not that it needed to. The Infinity Display is claimed to be engineered in order to work well with the S-Pen. If you want to see Samsung's S Pen in action, visit the #GalaxyLife event happening now until September 14. With new S-Pen, you can now create Live messages, animations, GIFs and lot more. The phone will run on a customised version of Android 7.1.2 Nougat. It comes with Samsung Pass to store all your passwords in one place.

For Samsung, the launch of the latest Galaxy Note 8 holds great importance, as the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 never made to Indian shores and there is a long gap in the Note series.

Samsung plans to release foldable smartphone in 2018. Both are equipped with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) for sharper photos and videos. The device does feature 8 MP front-facing camera with auto focus and larger F/1.7 aperture, that leads to the bright selfies even in the low lightening condition. The phone uses USB Type-C for charging and data-syncing.

The list of industry-firsts which Android-based brands have achieved includes; dual-camera systems, OLED smartphone screens, edge-to-edge displays and wireless charging.
