Samsung Note 8 with dual OIS cameras

Quote:
Earlier today, Samsung announced the latest high-end device in its Note series of large-format smartphones: the Galaxy Note 8. The new model is the Korean manufacturer's first device with a dual-camera on the back, but while Samsung is a little late to the dual-cam game, at least on paper, the Note 8's camera specs look quite promising.
The camera module combines a 26mm equivalent 12MP wide-angle module (with 1/2.55" sensor, F1.7 aperture and optical image stabilization) with a 52mm equivalent tele camera. Like pretty much all other tele implementations we have seen on smartphones, the secondary camera comes with a smaller sensor and slower aperture than the main module - 1/3.6" and F2.4 to be exact.
However, the Note 8 is the first dual-cam smartphone we are aware of to feature optical image stabilization not only on the main camera, but also on the tele lens.
As you would expect, the dual-camera comes with a background-blurring portrait mode and can also record pictures with both cameras at the same time. 4K video, a 240 fps slow-motion mode at 720p, and an 8MP front camera are on board as well.
Images can be viewed and edited on a massive 6.3" Quad-HD+ display that also allows for dual-window operation. Computing power is provided by an octa-core chipset that, depending on region, comes either from Qualcomm or Samsung's Exynos in-house brand. All of these components are wrapped up in a water and dust resistant (IP68) metal unibody that comes with the S-Pen stylus that is characteristic for the the Note series and offers improved sensitivity over previous models.
The Note 8 will be released in stores on September 15th. US pricing for the unlocked model has not been released yet, through carrier T-Mobile the Note 8 will be available from $930.
Key specifications:

  • Dual-camera
  • 26mm Wide angle with 12MP 1/2.55" sensor (1.4 µm pixel size), F1.7 and OIS
  • 2x Tele with 12MP 1/3.6" sensor (1.0 µm pixel size), F2.4 and OIS
  • PDAF
  • Dual-LED flash
  • 4K video, 240fps at 720p slow-motion
  • 8 MP / F1.7 front camera, 1/3.6" sensor, 1440p video
  • 6.3" Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display, 2.960 x 1.440
  • Octa-Core (2,3 GHz Quad + 1,7 GHz Quad) chipset (Exynos 8895 for EMEA /
    Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 for USA and China)
  • 6GB RAM / 64GB storage
  • Samsung S-Pen stylus

If there's one thing this Note 8 can do in video that is a big step forward in mobile videography that would be STABLE recording framerates. So far I have yet to shoot with any cellphone that can do that in varying lighting situations.

Yup, hopefully you'll be able to get that credit.

I was going to pre-order the Note 8 but... recently changed my mind and decided to wait until Black Friday.

I am waiting for the 6.22" Samsung S9 Plus with Snapdragon 845 CPU, 4K Super AMOLED display, Qualcomm’s X50 modem with 5Gbps download rate and the the Snapdragon 845 is expected to be a second-gen 10nm architecture with as much as 10% faster performance for 15% lower power consumption.
