Galaxy Note fans can celebrate! After a dry 2016, the Galaxy Note 8 has finally launched in all its glory and Samsung did not disappoint. The 6.3” Super-AMOLED display is a huge step up from the previous 5.7” one, and this latest design maximizes the potential of Samsung’s infinity display.

Equipped with the latest mobile computing tech, the Note 8 is also the company’s first high-end dual-camera phone which promises excellent portrait photos. Finally, the S-Pen is back with more accuracy, speed and features. The Galaxy Note 8 is here, and this is our first look at it.
