NEW YORK, Aug. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Spark your creativity with the new Samsung Galaxy Note8, available for preorder on Verizon starting August 24. The redesigned Galaxy Note8 takes everything that's made the Note series a fan favorite for years and bolsters it with Samsung's gorgeous Infinity Display, an updated S Pen and a redesigned camera system. Order your Samsung Galaxy Note8 from Verizon and save up to 50% when you purchase the phone on Verizon device payment and trade in an eligible device*.
"The Samsung Galaxy Note8 is more than just a smartphone – it's an interactive outlet for creatives, professionals, dreamers and thinkers to easily express themselves in new and innovative ways," said Brian Higgins, vice president, device marketing, Verizon. "With Verizon, you can instantly share the notes you create with your S Pen and take full advantage of the Note8's Infinity Display, without ever having to worry about buffering video or spotty connectivity."
The Galaxy Note8 is also the perfect complement to the new Beyond Unlimited plan. Beyond Unlimited plans give you premium unlimited 4G LTE data, unlimited talk and text, HD-quality streaming, unlimited mobile hotspot (15 GB at 4G LTE speeds), Verizon Up rewards and calling, texting and data in Mexico for $50 per line for four lines, plus taxes and fees†.
See more, scroll less
The Samsung Infinity Display proves that you can don't need a big phone to have a big screen. With its 6.3-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED screen, the Galaxy Great gives you more viewing space on a smartphone**. Now you can fully immerse yourself in your favorite book, show or work without having to constantly scroll or squint to see the full picture.
The Galaxy Note8 also offers an even better multi-window experience***. Using the new App Pair feature, you can create a custom button on the Edge of the screen that lets you open two apps at once, so you can easily text while surfing the web, take notes while reviewing a webinar or even read a recipe while watching a chef cook the dish on YouTube.
Create more with the Samsung S Pen
What sets the Samsung Galaxy Note8 apart from other smartphone is the revolutionary S Pen that gives you full control over what you write, draw and interact with your smartphone. The upgraded S Pen has a finer tip, improved pressure sensitivity, and new features, including an improved translation feature that lets you translate entire sentences in more than 30 languages by simply hovering over the foreign text.
A new Live Message feature takes your simple notes and animates them with fun filters, effects and save them as animated GIFs to share on your favorite social network****. What's more, you can now use Samsung's Screen-Off Memo capability to jot down quick notes from the lock screen and pin them to the always-on display for easy access to important reminders.
Sharp photos no matter how much you zoom
Galaxy smartphones are known for their phenomenal camera, but Samsung has stepped up its photo game with two 12 megapixel rear cameras with dual optical image stabilization. That means you can take close-up and wide-angle photos without worrying about camera shake and out-of-focus images. With dual-capture mode photo regret is now a thing of the past. You can take two photos – one from each lens – offering you the option to choose whether you want a telephoto or wide-angle view of your subject.
And while bokeh – the cool background blur effect – has become a staple of modern smartphones, Samsung now introduces the Live Focus feature. This lets you adjust the amount of blur in the photo; similar to a fancy DSLR camera, but now you can do it even after you take the photo. The best part is that you don't need to know your shutter speed or what an aperture is to create gallery-worthy portrait.
The Galaxy Note8 also includes the latest smartphone features, including:
IP68 water and dust resistance*****
Fast wireless charging
Iris and fingerprint scanning
Samsung DeX compatibility for a desktop-like experience (Samsung DeX sold separately)
Expandable storage up to 256 GB with a microSD card (sold separately)
Gigabit Class LTE from Verizon
The Samsung Galaxy Note8 will take full advantage of the most advanced 4G LTE technology later this year when Verizon launches its Gigabit Class LTE service, giving you access to peak speeds far exceeding most phones in the market today******. Transfer movies, photos and large files in no time with some of the fastest possible data speeds so you can spend more time watching what you love and less time waiting for it to download.
