Samsung Launches The Galaxy Note 8

SamsungLaunches The Galaxy Note 8After the disastrous recall of its Galaxy Note 7 phone last year, Samsung on Wednesday unveiled the next phone in its Note lineup, the Galaxy Note 8. The successor to the discontinued and sometimes flammable phone features a sizable infinity screen measuring 6.3 inches diagonally; two 12-megapixel color cameras; fingerprint, facial, and iris scanning capabilities; an updated S Pen stylus that can now translate full sentences; and an impressive 64 gigabytes of built-in storage. Samsung also made a point of independently verifying that the Note 8 battery meets safety standards, a key step to winning back consumer trust as the Note 7 battery was prone to overheating. The Galaxy Note 8 is available for presale Aug. 25, and it hits stores Sept. 15.
