Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to launch tonight

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 release: Specs and price

Samsung unveiled its latest phablet at its Unpacked event in New York City on August 23.

The first thing to note is that Samsung hasn't suddenly leapt from $700 to beyond $900. Samsung needs to get it right with this new phablet, a year down the line from the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, which saw production and distribution of the handset quickly halted after a series of explosion incidents - of varying degrees of severity - caused by the lithium-ion battery overheating. Both of these are heavier than the smaller S8, which weighs 155g.

Galaxy Note 8 vs Galaxy S8 Price: How much do they cost? Support has been added for enterprise video conferencing, and you can dock or undock the Note 8 without dropping an ongoing call. The teaser although doesn't reveal much detail, but re-confirms the big screen that Note 8 will come with. This half will definitely be more interesting than the preceding one. No force carrier apps (read: U.S. carrier ads). I'm not saying this is a wise approach, but it does seem likely to have contributed to the trend toward pricier phones.

The Galaxy S8 costs £689 and the S8+ costs £779, so for those not fussed about the S Pen, the Galaxy S8+ might become the obvious choice of phone. I was one of those guilty of initially underestimating the appeal of the S Pen, labeling the original Galaxy Note "a bad idea executed very well". Chief among those distinctions are slightly larger screen and, of course, the tried and true S Pen. Samsung clearly believes in its stylus as a unique selling point.

Meizu M6 Note with 13MP+5MP Dual Camera, 4GB RAM announced
Connectivity features of the phone are 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 ac (2.4 GHz & 5GHz), Bluetooth 4.1 and Global Positioning System . Today we are going to take a look at everything we know about Meizu M6 Note and see if we should set our standards high or not.

For European countries, it is believed that the Galaxy Note 8 would come with Exynos 8895 Octa-Core chipset while for US & China, the device would come with Snapdragon 835 chipset. Start a document on your phone and finish it on your laptop.

After sailing through the debacle over Galaxy Note 7 a year ago, Samsung is set to launch its flagship Note 8 on Wednesday, thus ending rumours of halting the further release of the Note series.

The Galaxy Note8 comes with two 12MP rear cameras with optical image stabilisation (OIS) on both the wide-angle and telephoto lenses.

Tornado warning issued for Onondaga County, most of Central New York
With a hot and humid air mass and strong winds in the atmosphere in place, these thunderstorms should strengthen this afternoon. The tornado watch extends from Western New York into Central New York , as well as the North Country and Adirondacks.

The Note 8 also remains IP68-rated, meaning it can withstand dust and water up to 1.5 metres and up to 30 minutes.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 launches on Android Nougat with Samsung's TouchWiz over the top, just like the S8 and S8+.

Other vendors such as LG Electronics are also hoping to eat into the Galaxy Note 8.

There had been rumours about the Galaxy Note 8 coming with under-the-display fingerprint sensor but those were dismissed as soon as new leaked images surfaced placing the fingerprint sensor at the same position on the rear panel which was loathed by many. Samsung's flagship phablet will not be the only premium device hitting the store shelves in the next few weeks.

Bihar Flood Worsens, Toll Rises To 119

Yep! Most phones are these days.
