Samsung Galaxy Note 8
The new super powerful Note
The Note8 is here and we can’t help but feel the tension rising, especially in Europe where this is the first Note device to officially land in two years. It’s been quite some time, so a lot is riding on the Galaxy Note8.
That being said, you may have noticed that Samsung isn’t revving up the PR machine this time around, gliding at cruising speed instead.
This could very well be due to the still fresh memory of the Note7’s woes or the fact that the Note line was never really intended to be a mainstream device with the kind of mass appeal of a Galaxy S or an iPhone. It’s more of a specialized productivity tool, catering to a select group of power users.
Samsung is playing it safe with the feature set too. There are no mind-blowing innovations in the Note8. The phablet is predictably sized and equipped, sporting a familiar, if slightly tweaked design. Even the dual-camera setup is by no means revolutionary. On the contrary, perhaps it’s even slightly overdue.
