Samsung announced Galaxy Note8 with first-ever dual OIS camera in a smartphone (and other pretty cool features)

At the Samsung Unpacked event in NYC, Samsung announced their new Note8 phone. While the presenters were awkward, as always, the phone looks pretty incredible. With two rear 12MP cameras, both with Optical Image Stabilization; 6.3-inch display; an App Pair feature—which launches two apps you choose in split-screen automatically—and more, the Note8 looks to set the world on fire!  I mean, not literally… that didn’t work out too well last time.
