If there’s one unique issue that Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 8 will have to contend with, it’s the association with an exploding battery. The Galaxy Note 7 was launched to critical acclaim before manufacturing defects on top of poorly handled global recall saw the South Korean company withdraw the product from sale.
Between them, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus had to do a lot of the hard work to make good the damage to the brand name, and have cleared the path to allow the Note 8 to stand apart from any association and return Samsung to the world of high-end phablets.
The handsets themselves will have a battery with a lower capacity of 3200 mAh. That’s 300 mAh less than the original Note 7 and, in a move that feels like a rationalisation of the supply, is the same capacity as the upcoming Galaxy Note 8. Otherwise the Note FE will be similar to last year’s release with a 5.7 inch screen, 12-megapixel camera, and the same critically acclaimed mix of hardware and software. The price of the Note 8 is going to top one thousand dollars.
If Samsung believes that the fate of the Note 7 is consigned to history then there’s no reason not to bring the product back to market. I just want to know if it is worth buying.
