Available to pre-order from today.

With the Samsung Galaxy Note8, consumers get a larger Infinity Display that fits comfortably in one hand, S Pen to communicate in more personal ways, and Samsung’s best-ever smartphone cameraThe Galaxy Note8 is equipped with two 12MP rear cameras with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) on both the wide-angle lens and the telephoto lens. For more advanced photo-taking, the Live Focus feature lets users control the depth of field by adjusting the bokeh effect.

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 for 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 chats.

The 6.3-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display lets you see more and scroll less with more room to watch, read and draw—making it the ultimate multitasking smartphone. The S Pen has a finer tip and improved pressure sensitivity.

For overseas travels or when you come across a website in a foreign language, the improved S Pen Translate feature lets you hover over text to quickly translate not only individual words, but entire sentences in up to 71 languages, and instantly convert units and foreign currencies.
