The Galaxy Note8 is Samsung’s most powerful mobile device to date, featuring 6GB of RAM to supporting fast and smooth use of multiple applications simultaneously. The 12MP Dual-Pixel camera on the Galaxy Note8 is capable of delivering a Bokeh-style finish, blurring the background while keeping the subject crisply in focus, giving pictures a professional look.

EE was the UK’s first mobile network to roll out Cat 9 connectivity, providing superfast 4G+ coverage for Galaxy Note8 customers in more places than any other operator, and with 4G coverage extending to more than 80% of the UK’s landmass. Named by RootMetrics as London’s best network for video streaming in August 2017, EE is the ideal network for streaming content on the Galaxy Note8’s beautiful 6.3” Infinity Display.

Sharon Meadows, Director of Devices at EE, said: “The Galaxy Note8 is the most powerful, feature-packed mobile device Samsung has ever launched, and the best way for customers get the most out of it is on the EE network. Only on EE do customers get the combination of superfast 4G+ speeds and the UK’s biggest and fastest 4G network, and a great voice experience in more places thanks to WiFi Calling & 4G Calling.”
