[In-Depth Look #3] Do More, Play More: The Entertainment and Productivity Features of the Galaxy Note8

By Samsung Mobile Press

Inspired by the Galaxy S8, the Galaxy Note8 builds on Samsung’s heritage of creating stunning designs with meaningful functionality, incorporating a large, bezel-less Infinity Display to allow users to see more, do more and play more. Additional screen space paired with enhanced entertainment features and refined multitasking capabilities make the Galaxy Note8 the ideal device for those who want do bigger things in work and life.

An Entirely New Viewing Experience

 

The 6.3-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display takes mobile entertainment to the next level by offering a noticeably more immersive viewing experience with a screen-to-body ratio of more than 83 percent and an aspect ratio of 18.5:9.

With the new ratio, content shot in 21:9 will fill the Galaxy Note8’s display, increasing the viewing area by 14 percent compared to the Galaxy Note5. This, along with the phone’s MOBILE HDR PREMIUM™ certification granted by the UHD Alliance, enables users can to see vibrant colors and contrasts in the way content producers intended while watching the latest binge-worthy shows. Likewise, gaming experiences are also heightened thanks to the phone’s expanded viewing area and powerful performance capabilities.

Multitask Like Never Before

In addition to offering a more cinematic viewing experience, the Infinity Display optimizes multitasking so users can work smarter, not harder.

Users have long been able to do more with Multi Window, which allows them complete multiple tasks on one screen for enhanced efficiency. But now with the Galaxy Note8’s new App Pair feature, users can create a custom pair of apps on the Edge panel and launch them at the same time with a single tap. This means that they can simultaneously launch their Music and Maps apps as they embark on a road trip, or pull up YouTube and their Messages app so they can chat with their friends about the hottest new music video.

 

 

Likewise, the Snap Window feature augments productivity by allowing users to pin a specific area from a recent app to the top of the screen, and continue using the area below it. The feature is especially useful for keeping an eye on continuously updated content, such as stock prices and news headlines.

By elegantly balancing competing demands – HDR capabilities and the ideal viewing ratio for watching today’s content, and the need for expanded screen space and enhanced productivity features – the Galaxy Note8 is the ultimate multitasking phone for all of one’s work and play needs.
