The Note 8 is the best screen DisplayMate has ever testedSamsung's Note 8 has record-setting brightness and color accuracy, Google Pixel 2 is rumored for an October 5 and Fitbit releases its first smartwatch.
[UNKNOWN], you'll gonna love this part. A new test by DisplayMate reveals the Note8 has reached reached record-breaking brightness levels for a full screen that's 22% brighter than the S8. Now for comparison, the Note8's maximum brightness level is 1,200 nits. The Galaxy S8 makes out at just over 1,000 nits And the current iPhone 7 registers in at a weak-ass 625 nits. Now, this is especially huge when you're using it in sunlight, unless you're in Seattle or San Fransisco, where this won't matter. [SOUND] Tear. Now, Samsung's phones have been All about the screen and it's no different here with the Note 8 certified for HDR. And it also has the full 100% DCIP3 color gammit seen in 4K TV sets. We haven't seen enough people take the camera out for a real world test yet. [MUSIC] I love being able to take notes directly on the screen at any time, which was part of the Note 7. Like, I would actually do that. But this is a phone Note fans should be really happy about. Maybe not its $950 price point, give or take, in the US. But that's the new price point some of these flagship phones are hovering around now, and we gotta get used to it. And if you're happy about dual cameras [UNKNOWN]. Come to the note line KGI's, Ming Chi Kuo reports Samsung will integrate dual cameras similar to what's found on the Note 8 onto the next Galaxy S9. But there's more coming from the Korean giant and they tease that We've seen new announcements at IFA in Berlin this week. In an interview with CNBC, Samsung confirmed they will be announcing a new Gear S smartwatch next week. The Gear S3 was a solid and great looking one, so we'll see what they do next. We've seen rumours that we're also expecting to see a Gear Fit 2 Pro as well from Evan Blass. Plus, we might also see a Gear 360 camera. After it was revealed, Samsung filed an application for a new product referred to as the 360 Round, that's capable of capturing 360 photos and videos. Okay, enough about Samsung What about the Google's new big thing, the next Pixel phone? Evan Blast says the new Pixel 2 and Pixel XL2 will be unveiled on October the 5th and feature the all new Snap Dragon 836 CPU. Now, the original was the surprise phone of last year when it swooped in with the Google assistant. Why am I so lonely? And the best camera on a phone app that type. We've seen potential renders of the new Pixel. Android Oreo is now out. And it's all coming together. But there's no official word from Google just yet. And get this, Google glass is still alive and well with this enterprise edition. The hardware will continue to work on Android and iOS after its companion app was recently updated. For 64-bit support after nothing for nearly three years. Okay on to LG the unveiling of the new V30 will be happening this Thursday at Ipha. It's been anything but a secret which is normal these days. After a hands on photo that just leaked online features it It's minimal bezels. Now LG is reportedly going to use a PO lead panel that stands for plastic cover over the glass panel. Which will allow the screen to have more naturally curved edges that feel better in hand. We talked about its F one six app First ever in a phone. LG will also be using a 32 bit advanced Hi-Fi quad digital audio converter to cut down on sound distortion. And you will also be able to use its audio receiver as a microphone to capture loud sounds without distortion. So, we'll get the low down on this in just a few days at Eva. And finally, Fitbit has released its first smartwatch called the eye on it with the promise of all its stellar finished tracking smartwatch beaters combine it has odometer built in GPS it's water resistant with a heart rate sensor and sleep tracking these are the key things you expect look that big ionic will also have access to fit that absorptive. And we'll allow notifications from things like Facebook, Twitter and Gmail. But the surprise here, FitBit Pay with its NFC chip that lets you pay at stores that accept Android Pay and Samsung Pay. It's pretty sweet. So with the promise of battery lasting four days or more and a starting price of 299, as a fan of FitBit stuff, This could really be a sleeper hit for the holiday season, and guess what, FitBit really needs it.
