Last night in New York city, Samsung officially launched the Galaxy Note 8. Though Samsung launched the Galaxy S8 just earlier this year, the wait for the Galaxy Note phablet seemed especially longer. Yes, I am hinting it, you are thinking it, it’s because of what went down with the Galaxy Note 7. That is not to say that people aren’t excited about the Galaxy Note 8. Everyone has been really looking forward to the new Galaxy Note, and from what we can make out from the event last night, the Galaxy Note 8 has really lived up to most expectations.

But this excitement hasn’t been able to douse the fire of last year’s memory entirely. While people are being extremely supportive of the new phablet, the underlying skepticism from last year is quite visible. While going through the public reaction about the Galaxy Note 8 on Twitter, we came across this bunch, that is sort of happy but sort of scared too.

Having shown you what the web is saying, we would ask you to still trust your own judgement. The Galaxy Note 8 features a 6.3-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity display, with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 835 SoC or an Exynos 8895 SoC, depending on the launch market. It comes with 6GB of RAM and three storage variants of 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. All the three storage models offer storage expansion up to additional 256GB via microSD card. ALSO READ: Samsung Galaxy Note 8 launched: Top 5 features

Optics is one of the highlights of the Galaxy Note 8. At the rear, the phablet sports a dual-camera setup, which is a pair of 12-megapixel wide-angle lens, and a telephoto lens. The Galaxy Note 8 is the first dual-camera with OIS on both lenses. Upfront, it houses an 8-megapixel sensor. Fueling the Galaxy Note 8 is a 3,300mAh non-removable battery with fast charging support, both wired and wireless. For connectivity, it has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, 4G, VoLTE and USB Type-C port.
