Samsung Galaxy Note 8 launched in India for Rs 67900

An employee demonstrates a Samsung Electronics' Galaxy Note 8 during its launching ceremony in Seoul on Tuesday.

We can say that things don't look that great for Samsung Galaxy A3 or for other smartphones that are in the same situation. The Note 8 is the most expensive smartphone Samsung has released, starting at 1,1 million won ($969) in South Korea and $930 in the USA. The other USP of the Note 8 is that it is the first Samsung phone with dual rear cameras.

"Since the August 23 New York unpack, many buyers and partners said the initial response is very encouraging", Koh said at a media event.

If you've been following recent Apple rumors and leaks, you know that those are all things we expect to see spread across the new iPhones that the company will unveil tomorrow.

After earlier model's battery fires, Samsung says Galaxy Note 8 pre-orders highest among series

It's no secret that Samsung's been working on a folding phone. On the front is an 8MP autofocus camera with f1.7 aperture and auto HDR support.

After an absence of more than a year, Samsung's Note lineup has a worthy successor. That is about $883.

Galaxy Note 8's S Pen unlocks entirely new ways to write, draw, and interact with the phone and communicate with friends. The Note 8 pre-orders have started in India on Samsung's online store and Amazon India. Koh also said Samsung hopes to showcase a foldable handset next year but that technological hurdles must be overcome before a decision can be made. It comes with a revamped setting menu and adheres support for multiple languages, emojis, and app links. The handset is IP68-rated water and dust-resistant. The fingerprint sensor and heart rate sensor are placed on the rear of the device.

The blog post ends with a kicker that can either be read as another shot directed at Apple or perhaps just a healthy reminder of how competitive the mobile world has become. IDT's market-leading products in RF, high performance timing, memory interface, real-time interconnect, optical interconnect, wireless power, and SmartSensors are among the company's broad array of complete mixed-signal solutions for the communications, computing, consumer, automotive and industrial segments.
