Samsung launches internet-less smartphone in Korea

Samsung launches internet-less smartphone in Korea

Prior to the release of Galaxy S9, Consumer Reports has released the top smartphone camera rankings, in which Apple iPhone X stood first, followed by iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. Korean technology giant Samsung thinks that being able to connect to the internet isn't a skill required for its latest smartphone.

Built with an intricately placed Glass finish, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 comes with an IP68 water and dust resistance. But Samsung itself lists the Galaxy S9's size as 5.8 inches and the Galaxy S9+' size as 6.4 inches.

There's even a removable battery so that students can keep that voice recorder going for all of South Korea's long school days, should the included 2,600mAh unit prove insufficient. However, if you are not a seasoned photographer and are satisfied with the camera output of your Galaxy S8 then we suggest you save your money and maybe wait for the Galaxy Note 9.

The larger model is expected to feature slightly different core hardware, with 4GB of RAM to the A6's 3GB, and a Snapdragon 625 processor in place of its Exynos 7870 chip. As for colours, you can pick from lilac purple, midnight black or coral blue. At the moment, no other details have been shared.




In terms of camera, the S9 possesses a 12-megapixel f/2.4 and f/1.5 aperture camera just like the S9+ plus a 12-megapixel secondary camera.

The notch houses the ear speaker, the front-facing camera, and a third item which may be a light sensor. The Galaxy Note 8 launched with Android Nougat and TouchWiz, though Samsung has started rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo as well in markets.

In other features, the smartphone includes a fingerprint scanner and iris scanner for biometric authentication, IP68 certification for water and dust resistance. Samsung says that "when communicating with text just isn't enough, Live Message allows you to reveal your unique personality and tell expressive stories". The S-Pen on-board has a 0.7mm rubber tip and a pressure sensitivity level of 4,096 to emulate a real pen-like experience, according to Samsung.

Samsung now has zero intentions of letting anyone other than the Koreans play around with the dumb phone but I'm not sure that this mobile phone would have many takers as it is.
