Many, at that time of the Samsung Note 7 fires, were convinced that Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd would put a shut-down on its Note series, but that clearly is not happening as the company says it won’t discontinue the “Samsung Galaxy Note series” and plans to launch the Samsung S8 and S8 Edge phablets that sound worth waiting for. However, as many expected to see the launch of the smartphones at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade show which is scheduled for February 27th in Barcelona, Samsung Mobile Chief Koh Dong-jin came out and said the phone would not get a launch event at the MWC.
The was no mention or comment as to why this had happened.
The South Korean smartphone giants are seeking to put behind the biggest product safety failures in tech history as they confirmed that the phablets will be launched this year. Although there was no mention of when they’ll be launched.
Koh killed rumors of the Note series discontinuation, as he told CNET that the Note series has a lot of loyalists, and the company plans to unveil the Note 8 this year. He further said that, “I will bring back a better, safer and very innovative Note 8.”
This is a bold step from Samsung, seeing the bad reputation the Note brand now has, because of last year’s mishap. The company had to make several apologies to its customers, lose billions of dollars in profits, and conduct a historic worldwide recall of its exploding Note 7 units.
Koh says the Note series is still very popular among people.
Apart from the fact that the company is bringing the Galaxy Note 8, there is little that is known about the device.
