Samsung Electronics (SSNLF) looked to steal some of Apple Inc's (AAPL) iPhone launch thunder Tuesday by touting the success of its pending Galaxy Note 8 release as the two tech giants square off in what could be their most important battle for global smartphone dominance.
The Note 8 is a successor to Samsung's disgraced Note 7 phone that was recalled twice and discontinued after it spontaneously overheated or caught fire.
Pre-orders for the Note 8 have reached approximately 650,000 handsets from 40 countries, to which president of Samsung Electronics' mobile division, DJ Koh says is "very encouraging".
At a price point of $930/£850, however, this might be a task in and of itself, especially as hardware of the higher end handsets tends to overlap in the market nowadays. As a journalist and communications manager, the 35-year-old relies on her smartphone to take photos, update social media, write stories, book interviews, capture video and send emails.
"It is the biggest leap forward since the original iPhone", Cook said at the event. The Note8 sports squarish corners and is designed to be thick in the middle to accommodate Samsung's signature stylus - the S Pen. Samsung's Galaxy Note 8, set to launch September 15, is expected to showcase a 6.3-inch screen and a sleek design.
Now, let's talk about that dual camera.

Galaxy Note 8 is fitted with a 12MP dual-camera system at the rear, along side a flash and fingerprint sensor. The only change between the international variant and the India variant is the processor, the International variant is fitted with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, whereas the Indian variant comes with Exynos 8895 Octa-core SoC built on the top of 10 nm FinFET technology.
The Galaxy Note 7 was notable for its hazardous, short lifespan in which the batteries within the devices posed safety risks to the user.
But the war over the quintessential smartphone is far from over.
The big screen, together with the power of the S Pen, makes multitasking a joy. The other thing that it has going for it is the 6GB of RAM that, for the first time, will be seen on the device in every market. The dual-camera setup includes a primary wide-angle lens (f1.7) and a secondary telephoto lens (f2.5).
"I know a lot of people who prefer to do everything on their phone".
The S Pen is a slimmer and improved version of its former edition. The CES always has some company showing off foldable display but there hasn't been any practical use case of the technology. On the front is an 8-megapixels selfie camera with Auto Focus and f/1.7 aperture. Only time will tell if they can hit the 11-million-unit target.
