First official Note 8 camera samples tell the tale of two cameras
by Daniel Petrov / Aug 23, 2017, 12:27 PM
Samsung's new Galaxy Note 8 is the company's first premium handset with two 12-megapixel cameras on its rear, and, while late to the dual camera game, Samsung went all-out with the set. The main wide-angle camera comes with f/1.7 aperture, the one with the telephoto lens sports a narrower, f/2.4 aperture, as can be expected, but both feature optical image stabilization for the first time in a phone. Apart from those two puppies, the Galaxy Note 8 also flaunts an 8-megapixel selfie shooter with the same wide f/1.7 aperture as the main snapper.
As can be expected, the camera software seems up to par with the excellent hardware, offering the panoply of dual camera shenanigans like pre- and post-shot refocusing, or 2x zoom. Samsung has provided a few official shots that sample the camera abilities for your viewing pleasure above, and says that these are taken with the Note 8. They seem pretty authentic - impressive yet not perfect - and we'd have to put the phone through its review paces to determine if the phablet gets it right in less than ideal circumstances, too. Keep in mind that some of these are the full size images straight from the Note 8's camera with the EXIF data, so they may take a while to load.
- Display 6.3" 1440 x 2960 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 8 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, Octa-core, 2350 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3300 mAh(22h talk time)

If these official images indicate anything then Note 8 has the best camera in a smartphone right now.

Get the right people to showcase your phone's camera and not the people who take 5 pictures in auto mode and say meh. These pictures are simply gorgeous especially if not heavily cleaned up in post. Bravo Samsung.

Wonderful thing is with RAW capture and how advanced Lightroom has gotten on mobile, these could have all been captured and edited as needed on the phone itself.

So now no one questions whether these were taken by a DSLR?

BE CAREFUL! Apple does this too, so it's not like Samsung was the first (or HTC, LG etc) ALL smartphone makers use professional photographers, clamp on EXPENSIVE lenses in front of the smartphone camera, use professional lighting. Yes, "technically" they were shot "using" the xxxxxxx phone, but it's misleading at best.
