After all the leaks that we saw online and so much excitement from every single one of us, Samsung has finally unveiled the Galaxy Note8, at the Samsung Unpacked in New York. And now it’s here in Malaysia. And not only they unveiled the phone itself, in fact Song Ji-Hyo, the popular reality show actress, Running Man TV was there too! 


Taking a look at the device itself, it comes with 6.3” QHD Super AMOLED curved display on the front and just like the S8, we have the invisible home button on the front. And above the display, we have the camera, Iris Scanner and Speaker Earpiece. On the sides we have the Power Button, followed by the Bixby button and the Volume Rocker. And right up on the back, we find the new dual camera setup, Flash and Fingerprint sensor. The phone features a USB-C port at the bottom along with the speakers and the headphone jack.


The feel in the hand is definitely something else. It’s definitely amazing. It feels like a much more evolved and a mature device compared to the Note 5. Also, it’s a good thing that Samsung is back on track after the incident with the Note 7. With just a short while with the Note 8, it was pretty immersive, thanks to the display and the camera which happens to be my favorite because both the camera features OIS. I can’t wait to use this phone and give you guys my full review on it. But if you want to get it before my review, The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is now available for RM 3999 in three colors, Midnight Black, Orchid Gray, Maple Gold.
