Less than a week before the official launch of Galaxy Note8, Samsung has released two new video trailers revealing upcoming the flagship device's capabilities.
In the first teaser, Samsung highlights the key feature of Galaxy Note8's camera: Bokeh Effect, which helps users capture stunning images with a clear focus on the subject, while the surrounding scene gets blurred. The interesting thing to note in the clip is that the company hints that the device will be able to offer Bokeh effect on both long shot mode (subject very far from the camera) and macro photography mode (subject very near to the camera).
In the second video, Samsung shows a person drawing emojis, words (Korean) and painting scenes using different brushes, hinting that Galaxy Note8's S Pen will offer numerous brush stroke options from super slim to thick and calligraphy-like effects.
Samsung Galaxy Note8: What we know so far
As per the information gathered so far, the upcoming Galaxy Note8 will boast Infinity Display seen in the current flagship Galaxy S8 series, but will be slightly bigger. It will sport a 6.3-inch QHD+ super AMOLED screen with S Pen stylus support.
