Samsung’s three flagship smartphones, the new Galaxy Note8, S8 and S8+, are all now available for purchase beginning today.

It also offers Samsung’s best-ever smartphone camera and Samsung’s first dual camera smartphone, with two 12MP rear cameras and the world’s first smartphone with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) on both wide-angle and telephoto lenses.
