Samsung confirms Galaxy Note 8

olixar note 7 carbon gold promoThe Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was the hot ticket, then it really blew up with an explosive finish. Yes, that was a rather flippant summary of how, just like Samsung’s reputation, the Galaxy Note 7 went up in flames. This has also had people wondering whether or not Sammy will kill off the Note line totally. Well, apparently not.

It’s hard to ignore just how good the Note 7 was looking. It had received rave reviews from most quarters, including on the Tech Addicts podcast.

Unfortunately, what should have been a highly successful phablet, had too many hardware issues. Multiple complaints of overheating and, well, combustion, eventually forced production to be stopped.

samsung galaxy note 7Samsung is offering anyone who bought a Note 7 the opportunity to get a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge for half price. Once they have an S7, they could then upgrade to a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note 8 when they’re released in 2017.

This South Korean incentive turns in to the tune of 100,000 won or about £72. No word if this will be rolled out over here, or elsewhere for that matter.

Yup, what I have taken from that is Samsung has confirmed via this upgrade program that there will be a Note 8.

There’s obviously no mention of specs or features for now, or if the Note 8 will still be called that. But, for now, the Note is dead, long live the Note.
