Its 64MP main sensor is backed by a Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor with quad-binning pixel technology. Accompanying it are 8MP ultra-wide, a 2MP macro, and a 2MP depth sensors.

Up front, the Note 8 Pro has a 6.53-inch display with narrow side bezels. There’s a dewdrop notch housing a 20MP front camera.
