Galaxy Note 8 in Canada: Everything you need to know!

The one thing that is very noticeably different is around back, where we find a new dual camera array.

If you're new to the Note series, these "phablets" are usually oversized versions of the Galaxy phones that Samsung launches each year - with bigger screens and a stylus, the idea is the Note devices are more serious and more professional, though the gap between the Notes and the normal Galaxy phones isn't as big as it used to be.

Previous reports hints that the handset will come with a 6.3-inch display featuring a a Quad HD+ resolution of 2960 x 1440 pixels.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be unveiled today through the Unpacked event that will begin later today.

We're hoping to hear how much the Note 8 will cost during today's keynote which is happening right now.

Having consulted with the Verge hive mind, here are my best hypotheses about the reasoning behind Samsung's latest move up in price with its brand new phone. As a result, the Galaxy Note8 has successfully completed a rigorous series of device and battery safety compatibility test protocols. Expect this to air on a TV station near you, especially if you're in the US. That being said, how does the Note 8 compare to its older Note siblings? It's a big phone with big features and McGregor is genuinely excited about what it has to offer. As expected, the Note8 comes with the top-of-the-line specs from Samsung coupled with the unique S-Pen functionality, and is also the first flagship device from Samsung to come with a dual rear camera setup.

On the inside, the Galaxy Note 8 will be powered by Samsung's 10nm FinFET based Exynos 8895 SoC for its global variants, while the device will get the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 in the United States and Chinese market.

Google Launching Android O During Solar Eclipse, Will Probably Call It 'Oreo'
He's got to care about update speed, right? If you didn't buy a Google-branded Android phone, you're going to be stuck waiting. As if you didn't already have enough on the agenda, Google just teased a big Android O announcement happening on August 21 .

Samsung believes the number one selling point of its Note 8 will be its dual camera system - the first to feature optical image stabilisation for both the wide-angle and telephoto lens. Meanwhile, mid-level offering with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage will reportedly cost CNY 7,088 or $1,062 United States dollars. A new "live focus" feature enables users to change the focus of an image before and after they've taken it.

The phone comes with an eight megapixel front-facing camera, as well as fingerprint, facial and iris scanners for biometric security. Samsung says convenient charging is one of the top three things Note owners wanted from a new phone, so pre-ordering is your way to get that without spending additional bucks.

For example, you could launch your Maps app and choose music for the journey or open a video while chatting with friends or colleagues about it in the screen below.

And, the device is water resistant.

Of course, there is one notable area where the Note 8 is actually a regression from its Note 7 predecessor: battery size.

Powerful Performance: With 6GB RAM, a 10nm processor, and expandable memory (up to 256GB), you have the power you need to browse, stream, play games, and multitask. Switching between them seemed snappy enough, but I'll have to wait until our review unit arrives to really see what Samsung's done here.
