A few hours back, Samsung officially launched the new Galaxy Note 8 with everything pretty much ‘BIG’. 

After confronting one of the most disastrous periods in the history of consumer electronics, Samsung was in a tight position when it made a complete recall to all the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 which were causing explosions due to poor battery circuit design.

The Galaxy Note 8 is here, and Samsung is hopeful that consumers who appreciate the Note’s features and its signature stylus will be willing to give the brand another chance. The Note 8 will be released in stores on September 15th.
