Connect, entertain, work, and play with the unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 8 SM-N9500 128GB Smartphone in Midnight Black. This device comes with the S Pen stylus, dual 12MP cameras, waterproofing, and Samsung’s Bixby personal assistant. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm MSM8998 Snapdragon 835 processor with one 2.35 GHz quad-core processor and one 1.9 GHz quad-core processor along with 6GB of RAM. The 128GB of onboard storage can be augmented via the microSD card slot.
The front of the Note 8 is dominated by a 6.3″ AMOLED 2960 x 1440 Infinity Display, which curves around the edges for a bezel-less look. Above the screen is an 8MP f/1.7 front-facing camera with HDR and QHD video capability. There are two 12MP cameras around back, one f/1.7 with a 26mm-equivalent lens and the other f/2.4 with a 52mm-equivalent lens, enabling 2x zoom and simultaneous video and photo recording.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has Bluetooth 5.0 built-in for pairing with other Bluetooth-enabled devices, and dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi for high-speed Internet connectivity. Integrated Wi-Fi Direct and NFC give you the ability to connect to compatible devices for wirelessly sharing content like photos and music. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is powered by a 3300mAh lithium-ion battery that can be quickly recharged thanks to on-board Fast Charging technology through the reversible USB Type-C port or through Qi and PMA wireless charging.
Android 7.1 Nougat
The Android operating system integrates heavily with Google’s services. Using the card-based Google Now, Android quickly surfaces information for you whenever you need it, powered by the same Knowledge Engine that runs Google’s web search. It’s a personalized and customizable OS, allowing you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your home screen. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to more than one million apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 7.1 Nougat adds major productivity capabilities to the operating system in the form of a multi-window view, which allows for two apps to be placed onscreen at a time. An improved notification system allows you to interact with texts and emails right from your notification pane – without needing to open the app.
The Infinity Display wraps around the left and right edges of the device for an immersive experience with an 83% screen-to-body ratio and offers QHD+ 2960 x 1440 resolution. The display is certified by the UHD Alliance as Mobile HDR Premium for accurate color reproduction.
The Note 8’s S Pen has a finer tip and better pressure sensitivity than its predecessor, enabling writing, drawing, and more. Live Messages lets you send handwritten messages, GIFs, and marked-up photos to friends and family across most platforms. Screen off Memo gives users the ability to start writing up to 100 pages of notes without waking their device up. The S Pen also offers a translation function for foreign languages and can automatically convert currencies and units of measurement.
Waterproof and Dustproof
The device features an IP68 rating, making it dustproof and able to be submerged in 5′ of water for up to 30 minutes.
When paired with the optional Samsung DeX Station, you can use your Note 8 like a PC with a keyboard, mouse, and external display.
Launch two apps with a single tap. They’ll show up side-by-side on the Note 8’s Infinity Display.
