Samsung teases Galaxy Note 8 features ahead of this week’s launch


Ahead of its expected unveiling later this week, two new videos released from Samsung tease some of the impressive features of the Galaxy Note 8.

Samsung is expected to officially launch the Note 8 at an event in New York on 23 Aug.

Now, two new videos released in Korea give an insight into what we can expect from Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphone.

The first video details the Note 8’s photographic capabilities in what appears to show the camera being able to take impressive depth of field shots, from what is tipped to be the device’s dual camera. From the video the images look similar to what can be shot using an DSLR camera or images shot on the Huawei P9, P10 and iPhone 7 Plus.

The second video is a little more vague and shows a man using a variety of different brushes and pens to paint images on a wall. This is like a nod to the stylus pen which features in Samsung’s Galaxy Note series, but it isn’t immediately clear how this relates to the Note 8.

The release of the new videos comes as rumours are rife that the Note 8 will be available to pre-order at some point this week.

According to tech tipster Evan Blass, pre-orders for the device will start on 24 Aug, the day after the device is expected to be officially unveiled.

Blass says that the Note 8 will then go on sale on 15 September.

Blass said that the those pre-ordering the device will have a choice of extras from either a 256GB SD card along with a wireless charger or one of Samsung’s 360 cameras.

Pre-orders in Europe will come with Samsung’s Dex dock, Blass said.

The Dex dock lets you connect your phone to a monitor, so that it can be used as a desktop computer.

Meanwhile, Android Central reported that the Note 8 was briefly listed on the official Samsung store before being taken down.

The images of the device posted on the Samsung store tally with images leaked by Evan Blass earlier this month.
