After much delay, Samsung has finally revealed its Galaxy Note 8, it is exactly as we predicted in the leak earlier this month. The company’s president thanked customers for sticking to their flagship device even after last year’s chaos. Beyond winning over consumers, Samsung has a lot riding on the device. The Galaxy Note 8 is the biggest launched after the Note 7 which was recalled twice because of its tendency of bursting into flames.
The Galaxy Note 8 is the most powerful phone which has been launched at the time when Samsung is completely focusing on investing into new manufacturing facilities. The key specifications of the new device are as follows:
Large screen: Samsung’s largest phone has a 6.3-inch AMOLED screen with 2,960×1,440 resolution.

8-point battery safe check: The Company is also getting a certification from an outside safety lab, UL for increasing confidence in customers.
Fingerprint reader: Awkwardly, the Note 8 is still keeping the fingerprint reader which was criticized a lot. It is present on the far side of the camera.
