The Note 8 improves on previous devices’ main device characteristics and signature S Pen functionalities. While it retains the same overall appearance and approximate size as the Galaxy S8+, it has an upgraded processor and, for the first time in Samsung’s smartphone history, a dual-camera system on the back of the device; one functions as a wide-angle lens and the other as a telephoto lens, both with 12 MP resolution and optical image stabilisation.
