But can Samsung tap into that buildup with the Note 8?

The Galaxy Note 8 is water and dust resistant.

The phone will have 12MP dual rear-facing camera with 8MP front-facing camera.

Running Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 sports a 6.3-inch Quad HD+ (2960x1440 pixels) Super Amoled 'Infinity' display with 521ppi. It also comes with the S-Pen stylus. Samsung says it has a revamped battery testing process in place to make certain of that.

The battery unit in the Galaxy Note8 is of 3300mAh. It also has a feature called the Live Message, which allows you to draw on pictures to add some emotion to them.

The Note 8 is the company's most expensive smartphone, costing more than the Galaxy S8.

Major highlights of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 are- bigger infinity display, enhanced S-Pen, and dual camera. It's pressure-sensitive and is ideal for taking notes, cropping screenshots, and so on. Due to the countless leaks, there are hardly any surprises, but the phone is exciting nonetheless.

Happy Galaxy Note 8 day, Android fans! It will have the microSD card slot for memory expansion up to 256GB. Samsung dubs this wraparound screen the 'Infinity Display' and claims the Note 8 still sits comfortably in one hand. Dual Capture mode is one example, and it lets you capture separate photos with the wide-angle lens and the telephoto lens. One is the App Pair where you can launch two apps from the edge screen with a single tap. The phone features a Snapdragon 835 processor (Exynos 8895 in some regions), along with 6GB of RAM. As for price Samsung has said that the handset will retail for around R18 499 at launch. This feature will also be available from today on the Galaxy S8 though it won't have the specific ability to understand Kiwi accents.

Each Note 8 will come with Harman AKG earphones as well.

Cameras: Samsung has always worked on the photography aspect, and the Galaxy Note 8 is no exception. The tip of the new S-Pen is now 0.7mm as compared to the 1.6mm of the Galaxy Note5's S-Pen. The new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the latest smartphone in a lineup that famously created its own "phablet" niche. While the Galaxy S8 mostly had the same 12-megapixel camera on as the Note 7 and S7 with a few software improvements, Samsung has pull all the stops with the Note 8. And some of those features will be nowhere to be found in the Galaxy Note 8's main rivals, Apple's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
