The update to the Note series comes after an usually long wait. Out here in India, the last Note device to enter the market was the Galaxy Note 5 Dual, after which the Note 7 was launched. As you well know by now, the Note 7 was later withdrawn from the market after units around the globe started catching fire. This time around, Samsung comes prepared and apart from the safety aspect, which is a given, there're a ton of new features for fans to play around with.

Under the 3D curved screen on the front lies a massive 6.3-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Display sporting a resolution of 1440x2960 pixels. Below it sits an Exynos 8895 chipset clocked at 2.3 GHz which is paired with 6 GB RAM and is available in 64, 128 and 256 GB internal storage options. The storage can be expanded via a microSD card slot found in the hybrid SIM tray. Cards of up to 256 GB in capacity are supported.
