For Samsung fans, late summer means one thing: a new Galaxy Note.
The seventh generation of the Galaxy Note series (remember, there was no Galaxy Note 6) is about to be unpacked in a launch event in New York. These launches are always a big deal for Samsung, with tens of billions in revenue and the top spot in the industry at stake. And make no mistake: Samsung competitors, from Apple to ZTE, are anxiously watching to see what they’re up against this fall.
This year the pressure is probably higher than ever. Everyone knows what happened to the Note 7 (we could probably say literally everyone), so Samsung can’t afford another misstep.
Here’s what to expect from and how to watch the Galaxy Note 8 launch event.
