Samsung Galaxy Note8

Description

Big and powerful, the Samsung Galaxy Note8 is made for smartphone enthusiasts and power users. It stands out with being Samsung's first dual-camera phone, enabling real 2x zoom and background blur effects. It is also the first Galaxy Note device built around the newer 18.5:9 display aspect ratio, which allows it to fit a huge, 6.3-inch display in a body not impossible to handle. The S-Pen – a trademark feature for the Note series – is now more precise and more useful with more features built around it. And no less importantly, the phone is built to higher safety standards than its predecessor.

This device is also known as Samsung SM-N950U, Samsung SM-N950F
