Samsung has today unveiled an update to the Note line, the Samsung Galaxy Note8. Let's look a look at the phones specs, and what plan you can get this phone on.
Samsung Galaxy Note8 Specs
The Note8 is, as always, big. Samsung describes the device as a phablet - with a huge 6.3" display, slightly bigger than the S8+ 6.2" display. The display itself is an impressive Quad HD+ (2960x1440) Super AMOLED panel.
Under the screen, the phone is powered by the same processor as found in the S8, the 8-core Exynos 8895 processor, but the device is fitted with 6GB of RAM instead of the S8's 4GB.
Internal storage comes with 64 GB, and is expandable via the in-built microSD slot for those who need extra space.
Battery life sits somewhere between the S8 and S8+, with a 3300 mAh battery which should last most people throughout the day with average usage. The battery can be charged using the USB Type-C connector, or wirelessly with a wireless charger that Samsung will sell separately.
Samsung has also introduced portrait mode into the camera, with 2 12MP cameras with OIS. One lens is a wide-angle f/1.7, while the other is a telephoto f/2.4 lens. Portrait mode allows you to take photos of a subject, while introducing a slight blur to the surroundings. The front also features a 8MP f/1.7 camera.
The Note8 ships with Android 7.1.1 Nougat installed, is IP68 water and dust resistant and includes a headphone jack.
In Australia, the Note8 is available in Midnight Black or Maple Gold colours.
