The world has been waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 - and what a powerful feature-filled phablet it is.
The Infinity Display from the Galaxy S8 makes its Note debut for near-zero bezels, plus more cool stuff you can use your S Pen with, and the first dual camera Samsung phone. On the rear is a pair of wide angle and telephoto 12MP cameras with Dual Pixel tech, OIS and background blur control - either before of after your shot.
And we haven’t even gotten to the quick App Pair shortcut to open your two favourite apps split-screen, or the generous new features added to the Samsung DeX when the Galaxy Note 8 is plugged in.
