1. 6.3" Infinity Display
The Galaxy Note 8’s sleek design is dominated by the impressive 6.3-inch, OLED infinity display. Perfect for those who love to get the most out of their device, you can enjoy the cinematic display to browse the web, read eBooks and watch videos in stunning high definition.

2. 12MP Duel-Lens Camera
Equipped with a 12MP, dual-lens camera, photos captured with the Galaxy Note 8 are sure to impress. The X2 optical zoom means you can still capture those high-quality snaps from further away, and the f1.7 aperture ensures you can snap away even in low-level light.
The Galaxy Note 8 also benefits from 4K video recording capabilities which can be used alongside the S-Pen to create your own GIFs. Live Focus and optical image stabilisation will help you to steady shaky photos too, so you should be getting professional-looking snaps whatever the situation.
3. S-Pen Stylus
One huge selling point of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the S-Pen. Write handwritten messages, draw emojis and create GIFs, all at the touch of the pen. Fully embracing 4K video capture, you can even use the 0.7mm pen tip to select a section of the video and create a GIF to share with friends.
Always making to-do lists or notes on your phone? Make the most of the S-Pen in Samsung Notes, or simply start writing on the screen and save to notes with Samsung’s Always-On Display feature. You’ll never have an excuse to forget your shopping again.
4. Powerful Snapdragon Processor
Behind the seamless design, the Galaxy Note 8 houses some powerful tech. The Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor and 6GB RAM makes for an ultra-responsive user experience.
This efficient performance, combined with the Infinity Display and quality speakers, makes the Galaxy Note 8 perfect for gamers and film enthusiasts. There's no need to worry about running out of space to store your 4K videos either - the Galaxy Note 8 supports expandable memory, via the microSD slot.
5. Bixby Personal Assistant
Meet Bixby, Samsung’s very own personal assistant. In addition to responding to voice commands, Bixby makes great use of Galaxy Note 8's 12MP camera to assist visual queries. Use Bixby to translate different languages by taking photos of text and phrases to get translations in real time. Bixby Vision also makes use of the camera to help you snap and shop. Simply snap a photo of an item in real life and instantly see where you can buy it online.
Another super handy feature of Bixby Vision is its ability to identify calorie and recipe information just by taking a photo of your meal. Sync this with Samsung Health and easily keep track of your food intake.
Like many virtual assistants, the more you use Bixby, the more it learns about you. Over time, Bixby gathers information about your routine and learns to adapt its services to meet your needs throughout the day.
