Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 Phone Aims To Rebuild Consumer Trust

Samsung Launches the new Galaxy Note 8 with an Infinity Display and Dual Rear Cameras

And oh gosh, they have pulled it off well.

The fiasco over Samsung's Note 7 caused the firm operating losses of some $5 billion.

That said, many prospective buyers should think about waiting for better Galaxy Note 8 deals, a major phone launch in September, and long-term feedback in Note 8 reviews before committing.

So what's new with the Note 8 you ask? The main highlighting feature of the phablet, however, is its huge Infinity Super AMOLED display. Not as valuable, but essential if you use up a lot of internal storage space and battery life.

The handset also houses a microSD card slot for expandable storage.

With the Galaxy Note 8, Samsung has finally joined the dual camera bandwagon. The rear camera unit in the flagship phablet is a completely new setup. Both the rear sensors are equipped with OIS.

Samsung didn't offer much detail on the new Gear VR, but here's what we do know. The second sensor contains a telephoto lens and an f/2.4 aperture with 10x digital zoom. An 8-megapixel auto focus camera sits on the front for selfies.

Of course the big question is the failing point of the Note 7 - the battery. 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+. It's so different we're kind of surprised Samsung uses the same name.

In addition to the state incentives, Waukee will consider a 20-year tax abatement worth $188 million. Reynolds cited research that shows economic benefits from data centers on Thursday.

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

The "S Pen" stylus with Galaxy Note 8 comes with a latency of less than 50 milliseconds. Time for some meetings by the pool, huh? The latest S Pen features a finer tip and boasts improved pressure sensitivity for higher precision than ever before.

Interestingly enough, Samsung still has the fingerprint scanner near the camera housing, but has opted to put the flash between the cameras and the scanner.

Right on schedule, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has been made official. The firm announced App Pair which will allow you to launch two apps with one tap for example opening maps and your music player before starting your journey.

Orchid Grey is the lightest color available for the Note 8, and offers a light color option for people who don't want to go with gold or would have previously gone with a white phone when Samsung was making that color available.
