Samsung Gulf Electronics on Monday announced that the Galaxy Note8 will be available across all major retailers in Qatar starting September 22.
The next level Galaxy Note8 empowers consumers with a bigger Infinity Display that fits comfortably in one hand, an S Pen to communicate in more personal ways, and Samsung’s best-ever smartphone camera to capture stunning photos.
“The Galaxy Note8 is designed for the way consumers lead their lives and lean on technology today. We appreciate the great passion of our Note users. Hence, we came up with an innovation for those doers who want to think big and do big,” said Tarek Sabbagh, head of IT & Mobile (IM) Division at Samsung Gulf Electronics.
The new Galaxy Note8 also enables users through “Samsung Members” – a preloaded app offering experiences linked to Gulf consumers’ passion points, through a new partnership with Marriott International Middle East & Africa and Cleartrip.
Consumers who purchase the Galaxy Note8 in Qatar will enjoy exclusive “Samsung Members” offers from Marriott hotel, restaurants and spas and Cleartrip.
The Galaxy Note8 has the biggest screen ever on a Note device, yet its narrow body makes it comfortable to hold in one hand. The 6.3-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display lets you see more and scroll less.
One of the Note’s defining features the enhanced S Pen unlocks entirely new ways to write, draw, and interact with the phone and communicate with friends on the Galaxy Note8. 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.
For overseas travels or when you come across a website in a foreign language, the improved S Pen Translate feature lets you hover over text to quickly translate, and instantly convert units and foreign currencies.
The Galaxy Note8 is the first smartphone with two 12MP rear cameras with Optical Image Stabilisation on both, the wide-angle and telephoto lenses. For more advanced photo-taking, the Galaxy Note8’s Live Focus feature lets you control the depth of field by allowing to adjust the bokeh effect in preview mode and after you take the photo.
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 Galaxy Note8 is also equipped with an industry-leading 8MP Smart Auto Focus front-facing camera for sharp selfies and video chats.
Samsung DeX enables a desktop experience, powered by your phone. You can keep your files on your device, conduct work on the go, and use Samsung DeX when you need an even bigger screen. The Galaxy Note8 includes Bixby, a smarter way to use your phone; it learns from you, improves over time, and helps you get more done.
Priced at QR3,449, the Galaxy Note8 will be available in three colours – Midnight Black, Orchid Gray and Maple Gold.
