See the Galaxy Note 8's key features in action in Samsung's official video introduction

Samsung has just kickstarted the late summer smartphone debut season with the long-awaited introduction of the Galaxy Note 8 (not to be confused with the Galaxy Note 8.0). And while the hour-long presentation did pretty well in showing the phone's major features, few people have the time and patience to watch the entirety of the event.

Samsung clearly knows that, as it published its own video introduction to the Note 8 at the same time as its live stream started. Clocking at 3 minutes and 18 seconds, it shows all the new ways you can use the phone's major features: the S Pen, the dual camera, and many other things like App Pairing and Bixby. But don't just take our word for it — click the play button above and find out for yourself!

Watching ads is good and well, but it often pays off to also hear other people's first-hand impressions as well. To that effect, we have our own hands-on of the Note 8, which you can enjoy here, both in text and video formats.

Introduction? Really Woah!! That is one hell of a breath taking Advertisement with a quality of a cinematic experience. LG should watch this.

I called it! This phone is simply not different enough from what's out there. This is basically an S8+ with a pen, slightly larger screen and upgraded camera. We've all seen it before! Outside of Note enthusiasts, this will be forgotten when that beast is announced next month!

3300 mah is disappointing. Should be at least 4000 mah. Way to screw up a release.

Right. I'm sure this'll be such a huge failure.

I think the Note 7 had really spook Samsung. My advice would be to wait and see whether Note 8 power management is efficient. There are many Samsung Android phones in the past with Samsung's bloatware that drains the battery uncontrollably. The worst thing they have done is to bundle their bloat into Android services and there's no way to disable them. Bottomline, a power efficient SOC and a stable Android platform, a 3,300 mAh should be pretty sufficient.
