Samsung has revealed quite a number of news these past few days. We now know why the Note 7 was catching fire, and we also know the Galaxy S8 won’t be making an appearance at MWC 2017. Now, Samsung has also confirmed the existence of the Galaxy Note 8; we imagine fans of the Note series will be thrilled by this.
Speaking with CNET, Samsung’s mobile head, Koh Dong-jin, confirmed that the Galaxy Note 8 is still happening. According to Koh, the Note 8 will be “better, safer, and very innovative.” If you’re worried that Samsung would end the Note series, you can rest easy now.
The reasoning behind retaining the Note series is simple: despite what happened to the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung found that there are “lots and lots of loyal Note customers,” said Koh. In retrospect, this doesn’t come at a surprise considering just how good the Galaxy Note 5 and the ill-fated Note 7 are: they’re some of the best Android devices in the market.
Whether or not Samsung’s Note lineup can appeal to the mass consumers again still remains to be seen; the upcoming Galaxy S8 may just be a good indicator of consumers’ current interest in Samsung’s devices. Hopefully, the Galaxy Note 8 will be a device worth waiting for.
