In the wake of numerous leaks, few surprises are expected at the launch of the Galaxy Note 8 as well. Why stick with a name which has become synonymous with exploding phones?

"We are here today because of your support", he added, after a video of sympathetic Samsung users was played before the audience.

Samsung will be announcing Galaxy Note 8 today at an event that is to happen in NY at 11am EDT, which is sometime around 8:30PM tonight.

The S Pen has once again been refined and improved, with more pressure sensitivity levels, a thin tip and tons of new features. The competitive scenario this time is entirely different from a year ago when the Galaxy Note 7 debuted.

The camera is a key component of any smartphone and Samsung says the camera inside the Note 8 is its best yet.

In a nod to its safety efforts, Samsung also said the Note's battery had undergone an eight-point battery safety check process.

South Korean electronics giant Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Note8 at an event held in New York, New York and streamed to the world.

The Note8 runs on Android 7.1.1, versus 7.0 on the Galaxy S8 and S8+, but it's basically the same version of TouchWiz you'll find on the latter phones.

You can expect Samsung will spend a small fortune on marketing the device given its role in rebuilding its reputation. It suggests that Note 8 will come with a screen as big as 6.3-inch.

After all, the iPhone 8 is rumored to be the biggest upgrade in Apple's smartphone lineup in years. Do you think the Note 8 will live up to everyone's expectations? It will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor in the USA while in India it will be having the Exynos 8895 Soc.12 MP dual rear camera with optical Image stabilization and 2x zoom will be one of the major upgrades seen on this device.

Perhaps the coolest addition to the Note8 is at the back of the handset where there is not one but two 12MP camera sensors. The main difference between the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8 is the larger screen and the increased RAM, reported The Verge. A new "live focus" feature enables users to change the focus of an image before and after they've taken it.

The wide-angle lens has a Dual Pixel sensor with rapid Auto Focus, so you can capture sharper, clearer shots even in low-light environments.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is finally, officially here.

Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 is here and fans of phablets can breathe a sigh of relief. One such tweak allows you to set up two apps to launch in split screen mode automatically via the apps edge, which I actually do think could be pretty handy if you use splitscreening frequently.

And, the device is water resistant.

For security, the Note 8 will offer iris and fingerprint scanning, defence-grade protection through Samsung Knox 6 and a secure folder to keep your personal and professional data separate.
