Design and display

The infinity display

Fronting the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is a 6.3-inch infinity display with Quad HD resolution, wrapping around both sides of the smartphone. It’s really tall, just like the S8’s, making for a bigger and better viewing experience. 


Awe-inspiring build

The slim profile of the Note 8 is just another one of its attractive features. It measures 8.6mm, leaving just enough room for the S Pen to slot in the bottom. And there’s also no more home button under the display, now on the side of the handset.



Doubling up on the lens

The Note 8’s dual lens 12MP camera guarantees great photos. It comes built with OIS for smooth video, and 2x optical zoom - so you can get closer without losing any quality in your shots. 

4K video recording

When a still photograph isn’t enough, and you want to capture every last detail, turn your attention to the Note 8’s 4K filming capabilities. And seeing as the resolution is so high, you can watch it back on a much bigger screen with out losing any quality.  

Under the hood

Wireless charging

A massive 3,300mAh battery will keep the Samsung powered up all day, and because convenience is more important than ever, wireless charging is built in. So when you need to top up on power, simply place the Note 8 in its dock – no wires required (sold separately).   


Raw power

A smartphone this size needs a lot of power behind it. With whopping 6GB RAM you’ll never have to worry about slowing down, no matter how many apps you’re running at once.


There’s also 64GB of internal storage for all your favourite photos, songs and videos, but if that’s not enough you can add a microSD card of up to 256GB.


Water and dust-resistant

Just like the Galaxy S8 and S8+, the Note 8 is built to withstand fresh water and dust. Certified as IP68, the Note will be safe in 1.5m of water for up to 30 minutes. 

Iris scanner

An iris scanner is built onto the front of the Note 8, letting you unlock to the phone with the unique pattern of your eyes. It’s even more secure than the traditional fingerprint reader, but if you prefer the ‘touch to unlock’ function, there’s a fingerprint sensor around the back next to the camera. 

New S Pen stylus

Samsung’s new and improved S Pen is now smarter than ever. A re-engineered, finer tip gives you a more natural writing experience, and boasts over 4,000 levels of pressure sensitivity.

Samsung DeX station

The Note 8 has a massive display, but if you want to go even bigger, you can connect it to a DeX Station. By docking the phone in this smart cradle, you can boost your mobile experience up to a full-scale desktop, with all your favourite apps automatically resizing for use with a mouse and keyboard.


Pre-order the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and receive a DeX Station with it. 


What is the f-stop on the rear wide-angle and telephoto camera?

The telephoto camera has F/2.4 and the wide-angle camera f/2.4  

What is the pressure sensitivity on the S Pen?

4096 levels of pressure sensitivity.

Which brand of headphones does the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 come with?

With every Samsung Galaxy Note 8 , you’ll receive a pair of earbuds tuned by AKG in the box as standard.

What type of SIM card is compatible with the Samsung Note 8?

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 uses a Nano SIM card, the smallest of the three sizes

Which VR headset can I use with the Samsung Note 8?

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is great for VR. You can use the new Samsung Gear VR headset with it, which comes with handheld controller for an even more immersive experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a phone! nothing near or close. i have tried most new ones, S8 is amazing but small S8 plus is good. iphone 8 plus- i returned in 3 days it felt as if i was in iphone 6 plus age, now i am on Note 8. all the love i have is only for this phone. precise, accurate sPen, premium glass back and front, dual telephoto lens camera. super fast processor and the screen size no other phone has. it fits my hand properly. having used iphone for almost 8 years i am not tied to this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Iris scanner, amazing screen, Dex, spen etc bought this phone on the release date. It is the best phone that been released. the fingerprint sensor is no issue never touched the camera once and it is so fast, the iris scanner works flawlessly, both with and without my glasses (Also works with contacts). the screen is mesmerizing, it stands out and when you watch a video, the quality increases the enjoyment you get from the phone. the spen has many features and i use mos of them, it convenient and has never failed me. IP68 rating for waterproofing is great to see, so i put it to the test and i have to say it did better than i expected, no damage whatsoever. camera. the camera on this phone is better than any camera i have used and gives a real feeling of having a DSLR quality with live focus. also recording in concerts can be hectic sometimes but with the note 8 i get clear, close up stabilised images and recordings with an amazing audio recording that give a feedback as if you're still at the concert. in my opinion, i would buy this phone, it has so many features as well as add-on features like the Dex, with a cost of 869 base rate, its worth the money, especially when you consider the iPhone x which is not of the same quality is 999.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone Recently bought this phone on sim free, so far its amazing the only downside is the price £869. But the features and everything are great and much better than apple. camera, battery life and screen life are just outstanding.
