Galaxy Note 8: Angular design and dual camera with optical zoom

Galaxy Note 8: Kantiges Design und Dual-Kamera mit optischem Zoom

More and more information items on the design and equipment of the Galaxy Note 8 are a good picture of how the Stylus smartphone will look and what it can. Today, first press pictures of the Galaxy Note 8 have been published on Twitter, and yesterday there were details about the functions of the dual camera.

New design is optimized for the stylus

Once again, it is Evan Blass, who has published via Twitter press images of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Clearly recognizable is compared to the Galaxy S8 and S8 + (test) somewhat more angular design, which reduces the curves on the side as well as the radii in the corners. Given the fact that the smartphone is to be operated by stylus, this is a sensible development. Already at the Galaxy Note 7 this had been the case against the Galaxy S7 edge.

Dual camera with fingerprint sensor

Completely new is the dual camera on the back, which leaves Samsung independent of the selected housing color black. The entire component consists of two lenses, LED flash, heart rate meter and, again, the fingerprint sensor. Now it is finally confirmed that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has not integrated a fingerprint sensor into the display. The technology does not seem to be that simple yet. Whether it will be Apple’s time for the iPhone 8 to succeed in developing a fingerprint sensor in the display to serial maturity is uncertain. According to recent rumors, this is rather unlikely, so that a face scanner will probably take off as Touch ID.

Triple optical zoom

Which features the dual camera will have, can be partially already now on an official side of Samsung view. Samsung has already presented its respective image sensor ISOCELL Dual at the end of June.

Samsung calls on its website to the camera features such as a “Super Night Shot” for better night shots, refocusing on objects in the background or foreground of the picture, a “Smart Zoom” for up to triple optical zoom, which is a significantly better quality than digital zoom Improved HDR, new image effects for post-processing, and shifting perspective.

Presentation on 23 August

The introduction of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was launched in New York on August 23rd. The presentation at the Livestream can be followed from 5:00 pm German time. According to rumors, the suggested retail price will be 1,000 euros. The Galaxy Note 8 would be 100 euros more expensive than the Galaxy S8 +.
