Samsung Unveil Foldable Galaxy Note smartphone in next year

Xiaomi oreo update

Samsung Electronics (SSNLF) looked to steal some of Apple Inc's (AAPL) iPhone launch thunder Tuesday by touting the success of its pending Galaxy Note 8 release as the two tech giants square off in what could be their most important battle for global smartphone dominance.

Apple has officially unveiled its new iPhone 8 and iPhone X, and the conversation on whether the new gadgets are better than Android-and vice versa-is heating up.

Button placements and ports are similar to that of the Samsung flagship, the only difference is the addition of the S-Pen housing at the bottom-right corner of the device. The display is surrounded by the same glass and metal body as the S8, only the Note 8 is less curvy and looks more professional (which is deliberate, given the Note line has always been aimed at professionals and the businessmen). The smartphone from last year can apparently operate on Android Oreo today and a demonstration on how to update the device has gone viral on the internet. The dual cameras also enable 2X optical zoom for getting in close to a subject without physically moving towards it or compromising on image quality.

This ain't the first we've heard about Samsung's foldable smartphone plans, and the firm has long been showcasing bendable display prototypes, such as the 'Youm' back in 2013. Pulling out of S-Pen opens a host of options, including ones that would let you scribble on screen, magnify and even translate languages for you.

Samsung India finally launches their much-anticipated flagship mobile, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in India.

The photos came out very well in both day and night light conditions. The device also offers NFC, which can be used for the Samsung pay throughout the country.

But analysts have predicted that creating a foldable phone that's thin and keeps all the top features is likely to take time. The device will be available in India in Midnight Black and Maple Gold colours, starting September 21. As has already been widely reported, the Note 8 comes with a standard wide 12-megapixel lens with f/1.7 aperture and a telephoto lens with f/2.4 aperture. The handset+S-Pen are water and dust resistant. There are some flaws, like the smaller-than-the-S8+ battery and the still oddly placed fingerprint sensor, but none of them are likely to be deal breakers. It has 64GB internal storage which can be expanded up to 256GB through a hybrid dual-SIM configuration where second SIM slot doubles as MicroSD card holder. On the front is an 8-megapixels selfie camera with Auto Focus and f/1.7 aperture.

A peek into the hardware information showed that 3.3GB of 6GB RAM was free.
