FYI: The screen of Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 has a default resolution of 1080 x 2220 pixels


Officially announced by Samsung earlier this week, the Galaxy Note 8 sports a dual-curve 6.3-inch screen - the largest ever on a Note smartphone. While this is definitely a Quad HD+ (1440 x 2960 pixels) display, you won't be seeing that resolution out of the box.

Just as it does on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, Samsung is defaulting the screen resolution of the Note 8 to Full HD+, and it's mentioning this on the phone's official website. Due to the 18.5:9 aspect ratio of the display, the resolution is 1080 x 2220 pixels (instead of the standard 1080 x 1920 Full HD).

Of course, users will be able to easily change the screen resolution to Quad HD+ (1440 x 2960) at any time from the Settings menu of the Note 8. But maybe you won't want to do that too often, as 1080 x 2220 pixels is still sharp enough, and, in everyday scenarios, you'll probably find it hard to notice differences between that and 1440 x 2960 pixels. Plus, with Full HD+, battery life will likely be better.

If you're planning to buy a Samsung Galaxy Note 8, does not having a Quad HD+ resolution by default bother you in any way?
