This ain't the first we've heard about Samsung's foldable smartphone plans, and the firm has always been showcasing bendable display prototypes, such as the "Youm" back in 2013. Today, in an event held in New Delhi, the company launched the phone for the Indian market.

Samsung's Note lineup has always been unique, and is presently the only smartphone which sells with a stylus as a bundle. The device is now available for pre-booking. Another major announcement made by the company alongside the Note 8 is that the Samsung Bixby voice will be rolled out in India starting September 30.

That's precisely what happened to Samsung previous year when some of its Galaxy Note 7 handsets caught fire due to a battery fault. The display is AMOLED which ensures sharp image quality. Initially, the smartphone will be available in Midnight Black and Maple Gold colour options.

Talking about its main highlights, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is an IP68 certified smartphone, so it is absolutely water and dust resistance.

It will also be available in select offline retailers. To recall, here is a complete set of specifications for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in India. Early customers will get a complimentary one-time free screen replacement. HDFC credit card holders will get a cashback of Rs. 4000 with the purchase of the phone.
