Apple boss Tim Cook will hope a new iPhone wins over customers and investors

The company is banking on its newest device to secure market dominance and compete with Apple Inc's latest iPhones which will be unveiled later on Tuesday, Reuters reported. The Korean company has also announced a Samsung Upgrade Program where old Galaxy Note devices can be exchanged for new ones to avail discounts. Packed with functionality and designed with users' needs in mind, the Galaxy Note8 may be the most feature-rich phone meets notetaking device out there. But hopefully, with this statement from Koh Dong-jin, we will actually be able to see a foldable smartphone in the near future or next year. The Note 8 will be available in stores around the world before the Pixel 2 arrives.

Strike's upcoming selection of Note 8 phone holders are created to hold, protect and secure your new curved glass smartphone while you drive or work. The device uses Exynos' 8895 variant for the Note 8 launched in India. The main highlighting feature of the phablet, however, is its huge Infinity Super AMOLED display. And now the Android Nougat Update for Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) has rolled out in India.

Though the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 comes with some of the top end specifications and features, the hardware specifications of the smartphone seems very similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. The rear camera setup includes two 12MP sensors. But otherwise he is pleased with the snappers: For most folks, it (the camera setup) is nearly never going to let you down. The front camera has an 8-megapixel sensor with autofocus and a f/1.7 aperture. The headline grabbing dual cameras - two 12 shooters (one wide angle and one telephoto - 2x zoom) and both with OIS - should in theory work better in lowlight than the iphone 7 plus dual cameras, MKBHD says.

Backed by a 3300mAh battery, the Galaxy Note 8 supports wireless fast charging tech. This step is taken due to the explosion of Galaxy Note 7.

However, the Galaxy Note 8 comes with a lower internal memory of 64GB, while the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, which is Rs 2,000 lower, comes with double the amount of memory at 128GB. "As before, they'll continue to pave the way for others to come". Base storage started at 64 gigs, and the Note 7 also supported expandable storage of up to 256GB via a hybrid micro-SD card slot.

The Galaxy Note 8, like previous Samsung phones, sports iris, fingerprint and facial recognition for speedy and secure unlocking, as well as quick and wireless charging capabilities.

The company has also introduced Live Messages that lets you handwrite a message, add special effects and share it as an animated GIF.
