Galaxy Note 8 is basically the spearhead for Samsung Electronics in introducing its AI (Artificial Intelligence) voice assistant called Bixby to global markets. Although Samsung Electronics applied Galaxy S8, which was released in April, with Bixby for the first time, it was only available in South Korea and the U.S. Bixby Voice that is installed within Galaxy Note 8 (including Galaxy S8) is provided through English and Korean in 200 countries worldwide. It is expected to be an ‘AI assistant that understands words and languages better’.
‘S Pen’, which is the trademark of Galaxy Note series, will play a role of a ‘hub’ that connects Smartphones with UX (User Experience). S Pen, which has a diameter of 0.7mm at the tip, has its pen pressure divided into 4,096 steps and provides natural sense of writing that is identical to an actual pen. It can also be used in wet environments as Galaxy Note 8 and S Pen are water and dust resistant with IP68 certification.
S Pen now can translate words and sentences that are written in foreign languages and is able to translate 71 words in the world. It is also able to show exchange rate or convert a unit to a different unit when one puts S Pen near amount of money or length or weight. It can also make instant messages that last 15 seconds and are composed of words, pictures, and special effects that are written or drawn through S Pen.
It also has strong security as it protects privacy of users through most advanced security technologies such as fingerprint recognition, iris recognition, and face recognition.
Galaxy Note 8 will be released in South Korea on the 15th of September as 64GB Galaxy Note 8 and 256GB Galaxy Note 8. Their prices are expected be around $797.66 (900,000 KRW) and $974.92 (1.1 million KRW) respectively.
Colors of Galaxy Note 8 will be midnight black, orchid gray, maple gold, and deep sea blue. However maple gold color will not be available in South Korea.
