Users who own the phone can now jot down those screen off memos, whilst small but well sorted out features like Animated GIFs is always a plus point to create those memes. And yes, both the S-Pen and the phone are IP68 certified, meaning both are water resistant. Then there’s Samsung DeX feature letting you convert your phone into a mini-PC.
Galaxy Note8 with its stunning Infinity Display enhanced S Pen and a true Dual Camera is designed for those who want to do bigger things. At Samsung, we listen to our consumers and bring in meaningful innovations that help make their lives better. With this launch, Samsung will further consolidate its leadership in the premium smartphone segment in Nepal.”
