Samsung's Foldable Smartphone Is Coming Next Year

Posted September 12, 2017

Samsung launched its new big-screen Note phablet, aka the Galaxy Note 8, in India on Tuesday at a price of Rs 67,900. Catch the event live at 12:30 pm.

"2017 has been our most exciting year as we established our leadership in the Indian market".

But in an overall perspective, OnePlus 5 has better specs, and LG G6 takes away the charm with its design and camera. The latest price cut in India makes the premium dual-camera smartphone with FullVision display Rs. 14,000 cheaper than its launch price.

With the Galaxy Note 8, Samsung has finally joined the dual camera bandwagon. More importantly, what about the battery this time around? Fast and wireless charging technologies are also supported out-of-the-box.

Is it really nuts to buy them still?

. However, there are a couple of changes. The device will come with Bixby Voice support in few weeks that has been optimised according to the Indian accent. Firstly, the bottom right has a slot for the S Pen stylus, and second is the placement of the fingerprint sensor. Most of you might know that the manufacturers offer at least two Android updates. As per a recent report, the company has received around 72,000 pre-bookings until now. This section will be updated as soon as we hear any official UK price information. Simply by ejecting the S Pen, you can start doodling or jot down quick notes.

Google Pixel 2, Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone 8 will all be released by the end of the year. Patrick Moorhead, president of Moor Insights & Strategy, said people are postponing upgrades to their other gadgets so they have more to spend on their smartphones.

iPhone 8 design: Does the new 2017 iPhone look different? Note 8 also comes with mobile payment service Samsung Pay and Samsung's defense-grade security platform Samsung Knox.The device offers a choice of biometric authentication options-including iris and fingerprint scanning in addition to face recognition, pin, pattern and password. If not, then it's worth heading to Settings - Software update and manually checking if the update is available for you. Hopefully, it should last for a full day. It comes with 6.3-inches Quad HD+Super AMOLED display with 2960 x 1440 pixels resolution.

iPhone 8 specs: What's new inside?

The Galaxy Note8 is the first note series smartphone to sell in India in always two years, since the launch of the Note5.

And after the flaming disaster of the Galaxy Note 7, which had to be recalled after some batteries caught fire, the risk-margin for Samsung on this potential release must be very tight indeed... The Android 7.0 Nougat update comes firmware version A520FXXUBQI5 at 1385.98 megabytes packed with new features and improvements. The iPhone will likely run Apple's latest processor, the rumoured A11 Fusion. We'll have to wait and see.

The rear dual cameras both come with 12 megapixel sensors. The new note has a 12MP dual-camera setup, one of which has a wide lens and the other a telephoto.

The iPhone 8 won't have a physical home button.

The Note 8 is Samsung's first smartphone to feature dual camera set-up at the rear with portrait mode and dual optical image stabilisation (OIS).

It also doesn't take the quality of the technology into mind.

For the past five days since preorders for the Galaxy Note 8 kicked off, the total number of preorders reached 650,000, posting a new record. It weighs 195 grams and available in Midnight Black & Maple Gold colors. Apple has been using the screen tech on products leading up to the iPhone 7.
