A year after the Note 7 debacle, Samsung is back with the Galaxy Note 8. You can read our hands-on here.
The Note 8 has a 6.3-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, making it just 0.1-inches bigger than the S8+. But the corners of the Note 8's display aren't as rounded as they are on the S8.
On the rear of the phone, there's a glass panel that also curves at both sides, mirroring the design of the front display.
The 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port, and speaker remain on the bottom.
Note 8's standout new feature: a dual rear camera setup that pairs a 12-megapixel telephoto f/2.4 lens with a 12-megapixel wide-angle f/1.7 lens. The setup gives you 2x optical zoom and a background blurring mode.
The new S Pen has a thinner tip, but still recognizes 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity. There's also Live Message, which lets you create an animated gif of your handwriting with animated effects around the words to send to your friends.
The Galaxy Note8 will be available in mid-September.
