Update:Samsung is rumored to launch the successor of infamous Note 7 soon. However, before the actual launch, the South Korean company decided to tease features as a marketing gimmick. Samsung has posted two videos which give an inside look at the Galaxy Note 8 camera features and the new S-Pen.

The first video gives an insight into the Zoom and Bokeh effect of Note 8. These features match to those of the earlier leaks suggesting Samsung Galaxy Note 8 might feature 2x optical zoom or 3x zoom.


The second video shows the new S-Pen which will come bundled with Note 8. The S-Pen has always acted as USP for Samsung flagship phablets and it we hope that it doesn�t disappoint the fans. Samsung might be revealing more features about the S-Pen on 23rd August but this is it for now.
