Strike Launches World's First Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Phone Holder

But the latest model in the series, the Note 8, appears to have shaken off the concerns that dogged its predecessor.

The Galaxy Note 8 is being launched a year after Samsung was forced to recall its Galaxy Note 7 smartphone after several consumers reported that the Galaxy Note 7 caught fire while being charging.

Samsung Electronics, the world's largest manufacturer of smartphones, plans to hold an event in China on Wednesday to celebrate the release of the phablet there with Koh scheduled to attend the ceremony.

He did not elaborate what the problems are, but analysts said mass-producing a foldable phone with top tech features and a thin body will take time.

The Galaxy Note 8 is undeniably big, and most users may not prefer a phone hard to operate and manage, which include styluses.

The Galaxy Note 8 comes with a 6.3-inch display, and a standard wide and zoom lens camera.

The new Galaxy Note 8's supports a 6.3-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display that lets users see more and scroll less. The company claims to have ideal photos from the camera even when it's dark or it's hard to keep your phone steady. With the arrival of Android Oreo 8.0, things have changed a lot. Now, they ready to launch their all new Galaxy Note 8 today in India. The device features 64GB of inbuilt storage that is expandable up to 256GB with the help of a microSD card.

Samsung has gone in for a 12 MP + 12 MP dual rear camera setup. It's unclear whether Samsung's upcoming Note will offer similar functionality.

Powering the package is a 3,300 mAh battery which Samsung claims has been subjected to an 8 point battery checks to ensure that it does not blow up while sitting in your pocket. The phone will run on a customised version of Android 7.1.2 Nougat. The inclusion of Samsung Pay and Bixby voice assistant also adds to the package that the Note 8 is. This has been tweaked to cater to the Indian accents. What separates it from its sibling though is the smart stylus S-Pen.it is quite handy in taking down notes and quick annotations. The S Pen allows you to takes Notes even when the smartphone is in standby mode. While the new phone also features facial recognition and an iris sensor for biometric security, CNET called the iris scanner's performance "hit-or-miss", and BGR warned both options could be prone to hacking. The handset+S-Pen are water and dust resistant.

The Korean smartphone leader launched the device for Rs 67,900, and will introduce finance schemes besides an automatic update program for existing Samsung customers, which can be activated from the Samsung app on the phone.
