Samsung Galaxy Note 8We all know that South Korean tech giant Samsung is gearing up to launch its much-awaited Galaxy S10 series (Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10 Lite). It is a common practice for brands to cut prices of older devices before or after the launch of new ones. Keeping up with the practice, Samsung has slashed prices of its popular Galaxy Note 8, which is company’s flagship from 2017. The handset received a price cut of Rs. 12,000 back in August 2018 when Samsung had launched Galaxy Note 9 and now the company has cut the price further by Rs. 13,000 which brings down the final effective price to Rs. 42,900. The new price is effective across both online and offline purchase channels. In addition, the company is also offering ‘No Cost EMI’ options and you can also get an additional cashback of Rs. 1,000 if you make the payment via Paytm! Although Samsung says that the offer is valid for limited period, we feel that it will stay until the company discontinues the device permanently.

To recall, the Galaxy Note 8 features 6.3-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display with screen resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels and an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. In India the device is powered by Exynos 8895 paired with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage which is expandable up to 256GB via microSD card in a hybrid dual-SIM configuration.

The phone was launched with Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS with the company’s own customisations on top and has not yet received Android Oreo update. All of this is fueled by a 3,300mAh battery with wireless as well as fast charging support. Being a Note device, it also comes with the S-Pen that lets you perform various functions with ease. The phone features a dedicated Bixby button, to access Samsung virtual assistant. In terms of dimensions, the Note 8 measures 162.5×74.8×8.6 mm and weighs in at 195 grams.
