   The Samsung Note 8 will cost $1599 and go on sale in New Zealand on September 22

The new smartphone will soon be available in Midnight Black, Deepsea Blue, Orchid Gray and Maple Gold colors. You get a similar design with rounded edges at the front and the back but unlike the S8/S8+ it is not as rounded. Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac (2.4/5GHz), VHT80 MU-MIMO, Bluetooth v 5.0 (LE up to 2Mbps), GPS with GLONASS, USB Type-C 3.1, NFC, MST.

IP68 rated for dust and water resistance for up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes. The Galaxy Note 8 comes with a 6.3-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED Infinity Display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio.

The S-Pen also has some fresh tricks up its sleeve; users can now take up to 100 pages of notes in the Screen Off Memo mode. Major highlights of Note 8 are- bigger infinity display, enhanced S-Pen, and dual camera.

On the inside, the Galaxy Note 8 will be powered by Samsung's 10nm FinFET based Exynos 8895 SoC for its global variants, while the device will get the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 in the United States and Chinese market. In terms of storage, the Note 8 will come in three capacities - 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. The phone comes with a 3300mAh battery, bigger than 3000mAh one on Galaxy S8's, but smaller than 3,500 battery cell in the Galaxy S8+.

The battery might be an issue for some, considering what happened a year ago.

The Note 8 includes other notable innovations, including dual 12 MP cameras (where the S8/S8+ have a single 12 MP camera).

Locally South Africa will be getting the Note8 with an Exynos processor rather than the Snapdragon 835. It is composed of one 12MP f/1.7 Dual Pixel wide-angle sensor along with another telephoto 12MP f/2.4 unit.

After months of rumours and speculations Samsung has taken the wraps off its latest flagship device, the Galaxy Note 8 at a grand live presentation in New York City on Wednesday.

Dj Koh, Samsung's president of mobile communications, was forced to mention it during the press conference in NY. It's the first from Samsung to get dual camera lens. On the front is an 8-megapixels selfie camera with Auto Focus and f/1.7 aperture.

How much do you save? Given that there's no real competitor to the S Pen in the smartphone market, the Note 8 is your best bet for a stylus equipped smartphone. You can now play mobile-only games like "Vainglory" on Dex with a monitor, keyboard and mouse hooked up. The display allows the users to make use of the large screen in an effective manner with features such as multitasking. Pre-orders for the device begin on August 24, and it will ship and arrive in stores on September 15. As expected, the phone isn't cheap and starts at $930 unlocked in the US.
