Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Samsung has taken the lid off its newest mobile device, the Galaxy Note 8.  The Galaxy Note line is one of the bestselling products from Samsung but the last iteration was marred by serious controversy when units began exploding because of overheating batteries.  With the Galaxy Note 8, let us all hope that Samsung has finally figured things out and has made a safe product.

At the grand reveal, the world saw the official images of the Galaxy Note 8.  It was the same image as the ones shown in leaked photos.  It was beautifully designed and carried with it exciting new features.
