The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 smartphone is an upgrade to its predecessors, the Note 5 and Note 4 respectively.

The smartphone, as you would expect, is beautiful, sleek and slim; much like a bigger version of the S8.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 packs a large 6.3-inch Super AMOLED pressure-sensitive QHD resolution curved display dual edge screen(like the s7 edge) with 1,024 pressure points.

The large display size is due to the near bezel-less design of the device, a new innovation that first shipped with the S8.

This display technology is known as the Infinity display, and it features an edge-to-edge screen, near bezel-less display and full frontal glass.

This givies you more screen for a bigger view and more space to use the S Pen.

It also ships with a scratch resistance Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The first ever Note device to feature the latest version of this protective glass.

The S-Pen can be seen faintly, which looks exactly like the push-to-eject variant present on last year’s model.

The home button ( which also serves as the fingerprint reader) is still located at the base of the front screen.

The usual array of cameras and sensors is located at the back while the power button would is situated on the right side. The fingerprint sensor is just right of the dual rear cameras.

The volume buttons are located on the left side of the phone.

The option to choose from a variant of Midnight Black, Deepsea Blue, Orchid Gray and Maple Gold colors has been made available by the Korean Tech company.

Lest I forget, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is both water and dust resistance.
