India Loves Note
Samsung pioneered a new category of smartphones with the Galaxy Note launch in 2011. Since then, a community of enthusiasts emerged through their affinity for Note’s signature expansive screen and S Pen, according to Samsung market research1, 87% of Note users say they are satisfied with their Galaxy Note and 82% may recommend it to friends.
See More, Do More on the Infinity Display
Galaxy Note 8 has the biggest screen ever on a Note device, yet with superior engineering and design, it comfortably fits in one hand. The 6.3-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display lets you see more and scroll less. Galaxy Note8 gives you more room to watch, read and draw - making it the ultimate multitasking smartphone.
Note users have long been able to do more with Multi Window. With Galaxy Note 8, the App Pair feature lets you create a custom shortcut on the Edge Panel to simultaneously launch two frequently used apps and invoke them with ease. So, they can watch a video while messaging friends or dial into a conference call with the number and agenda in front of them.
Smarter Way to Express
Since its introduction, the S Pen has been one of the Note’s defining features. With Galaxy Note8, the intelligent S Pen unlocks entirely new ways to write, draw, and interact with the phone and communicate with friends. It has a finer tip, improved pressure sensitivity and features that enable users to express themselves in ways that no other stylus or smartphone ever has.
