Description:

Pre-order, this flagship device is expected to be released on September 22, 2017.

Samsung Galaxy Note8 (64GB Australian Stock 4G LTE) is the next-generation premium flagship phablet of the 2017 Note series by Korean tech giant Samsung. Announced in August 2017, this beast of a device is expected to be released in September 2017. It boasts specs far better than all previous flagships and redefines consumer expectations. Boasting a full metal-and-glass construction, the phone offers glass on the front and metal on the back, bend in unison creating a seamless and flush surface all around. The phablet models a huge 6.3-inch Infinity Display that is the biggest to feature on any Note device till date. It is nearly bezel-less allowing a larger edge-to-edge screen. It employs Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen technology with Full HD 2960 x 1440 screen resolution which can be changed to QuadHD+. Supporting multitouch functionality, the screen packs a massive 521 pixels per inch of the screen allowing for stunningly clear visuals. Also, it features latest Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection (back panel) which is capable of deterring bumps and scratches.

The 8.6mm thin smartphone is IP68 certified and therefore offers waterproofing capability up to 1.5 meters underwater immersion for 30 minutes. Just like previous models, the Note8 also features a stylus: the S Pen. This all new S Pen comes with a 0.7mm tip with 4096 pressure levels and introduces a number of creative features to express yourself such as Live Message which lets you draw emojis as well as animated GIFs, Samsung Notes for quick bullet notes and drawing up designs with a massive selection of brushes and pens, Screen Off Memo which lets you take quick notes by just taking out the S Pen and writing on screen without even unlocking the phone. The possibilities with the new S Pen are virtually limitless. Other S Pen features include Magnify, Glance, Bixby Vision, Translate, Screen Write and Screen Select.

The internal hardware of the Galaxy Note8 comprises of a powerful Exynos 8895 chipset from Samsung. This chip comprises of an Octa-core 10nm CPU featuring four 2.3GHz core and four 1.7GHz core processors. The chip has a massive 6GB RAM that enables extraordinarily fast multitasking and app processing. For internal storage, a 64GB ROM is provided and has Android OS v7.1.1 (Nougat) pre-installed. The storage can be further expanded up to 256GB via microSD card slot. There is big news for gaming enthusiasts as well as the Note8 comes with Vulkan APL. This technology allows for faster connections between the CPU and the graphics unit which in turn allows you a seamless and completely lag-free gaming experience no matter how heavy the game is. It also ensures that your phone does not lose battery power quickly even when playing powerful multimedia.

As expected this flagship phablet from Samsung is big on security specs. It offers biometric authentication along with Samsung Knox. The biometric features include an iris scanner, one of the most foolproof ways to keep information accessible only to you. With this security feature enabled, all you need to do to unlock your phone is to bring it close to your eyes. The phone automatically scans your own unique iris and authenticates unlocking as soon as it recognizes your iris pattern. Other features are fingerprint scan, face recognition, pattern unlocking, password access and PIN numbers.

In terms of camera optics, Samsung Galaxy Note8 has a 12.0-Megapixels Dual rear camera with Optical Image Stabilization, face detection, Auto HDR, simultaneous 4K video (30fps) and 9MP image recording, 2x optical zoom and up to 10 max zoom. Its Live Focus function provides a beautiful bokeh effect which focuses on the subject and blurs out everything in the background. The degree of blur can be adjusted once the photo has been captured to give you more control over your photography. You can also select the outside the frame option for an extended capture of moments which usually get missed with regular cameras. This camera comes with a number of pre-set modes and is especially capable of clear night time capture. Furthermore, an 8.0-Megapixels selfie camera is also provided for amazing self shots and video calls/recordings. Images are captured with the Dual Pixel Sensor which works with a brighter F/1.7 lens and larger 1.55µm pixels to record images the way your own eyes do.

    Has anyone here brought from this seller before?
    Would I be able to claim the free wireless charger promotion through this seller?

    • yes you are eligible for free wireless charger, but be careful about import duty above $1000

      • +1

        Ships from Melbourne though. Shouldn't be any import duty.

        • great i did not notice, i thought they are also delivering it from Hong Kong

    • I have. My S7 edge 128GB was delivered in a week. No issues.

    • According to Samsung, I emailed them

      Screen Assure and the free wireless charger by redemption is only valid for purchases from Authorised stockists,
      Grey Imports are excluded from this offer and as such you should ensure you are buying an Australian model if you wish to claim the free wireless charger or to have the protection of Screen Assure.

  • +6

    feedback from ebay pretty bad, all from last month too

  • Is there free convertible charger and screen cover included? I could not find these info.

    • http://www.samsung.com/au/note8-wirelesscharger-offer/terms....
      if you download and read pdf from the above link, it states the model numbers which are eligible for the offer. This item is SM-N950FZDAXSA, so this item is eligible.

      • Thank you for that.

      • It also says in the pdf that grey imports are excluded: expressly excludes “grey imports”

        So if this ships from Melbourne as their ads states and is truly Australian stock, then it should be eligible. If not, and it comes from HK, then no.

  • buymobile seem to put $999 as the item value. I contacted them about it and said import duties are included in the price lol.
    Buying my second macbook from them but they do seem to take a while to ship it.

  • +3

    just be careful. i bought s8+ from these guys on the 14/8 and still has not shipped. Their estimate is 10 business days of processing to ship.
    I will never buy from these guys again. you're better off waiting for another deal

    • just wanted to update and say. I ordered a blue one on 14/8. on 29/8 they told me they had no stock and if i would want a black one? I said yes. Today 6/9 they said they have no black ones and that they have the blue one in stock but the Price difference is $160. Absolute joke…

      TL:DR AVOID AT ALL COSTS

  • Did anyone bother to read the description.. Geez try and make the deal a bit more enticing to read

  • +1

    Wow! 85% positive feedback

  • +1

    Nonsense deal. Love the description:

    "Treat dad this father's day!" To what? Disappointment!

    "Pre-order Samsung Galaxy Note8 (64GB Australian Stock 4G LTE) <<SHIPS 22 Sept>>"

    • Can't be worst than roboguy. Treat mom on mothers day to a xiaomi vacuum. 3 months later. No dice.

  • +3

    Cheaper here

    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/326276

    And I rather trust Vaya than Buy Mobile AU….reads their reviews, doesn't seem all that good

    • Both these deals are dodgy

    • +3

      Vaya's displayed out of stock at the time of posting this Deal. Thought I'd show others there was another option.

      • -1

        Cheers mate, I didn't check if it was OOS

  • Yes it's a similar post to the previous deal, but there is currently stock available for both colours.

    Stock available or pre order? Can't be both.

    Pre-order Samsung Galaxy Note8 (64GB Australian Stock 4G LTE) ships 22 Sept

    • Yes it could. Stock allocation's of units available for pre-order.

      • Guess it comes down to semantics but I would imagine most people to assume stock available as meaning stock on hand and pre order as waiting for stock to arrive.

  • Given the Australian Wholesale Cost price on this device is higher than their selling price.
    there is NO WAY THIS IS AUSTRALIAN STOCK!

    No Free Wireless Charger
    No Screen Assure
    No Samsung Aus Warranty.

    Unless they intend to loose money on every unit as a "customer service exp" I would not believe the claim this is Aus Stock.

    • +1

      Regardless of whether or not it's Australian stock or not, isn't $1499 the RRP? That's what JB are selling it for, it's only cheaper here because Ebay are covering 20% of the cost.

  • Look at their warranty policy.
    It is theirs, and is for 12 months.

    I would expect to see something like "24 month waranty by the manufacturer" if it is "Australian stock"

    • Interesting point, did not notice

  • New message from: vaya_shop (893Purple Star)
    Hi,
    Actually, this is an Australian model and will be shipped from within Australia, we're not able to change the listing's location as this will enable the change for the entirety of our product so we made sure that it is indicated in the product listing. If purchased before 22nd of Sept will include the offer to redeem a wireless charger from Samsung, this has been guaranteed by our Supplier already.

    still confused about screen assurance

  • if you are note 7 user who surrendered it back, Samsung is offering $250 discount to get Galaxy Note 8. I am also one of them, so $1250 with wireless charger and screen assurance is a good deal.

    • where did you get this $250 discount from?

  • +3

    The t's and c's for the screen assure offer specifically exclude ebay purchases.

    "Participating Retail Store" means each of the……
    and excludes any online bidding or auction websites (including www.ebay.com.au) and…….

      I'd prefer to see them offering a 'battery assurance'..
