It was one of the most disastrous product recalls ever and cost the company billions of euros, leaving a once solid reputation badly bruised – but Samsung have bounced back, burying their fiery past with the launch of a new Galaxy Note 8 tablet.
The latest version features its biggest-ever screen, along with new multi-tasking capabilities, and a dual lens rear camera.
The Note 8 comes with the S-pen stylus, which can be used even when the phone’s screen is off.
The unveiling comes five months after the release of the Galaxy S8 smartphone, which, according to analysts, did really well indicating a recovery in Samsung’s standing.
Battery fires prompted the October withdrawal of the Galaxy Note 7 just two months into sales costing the company around 4.6 billion euros.
According to Fortune magazine, if you owned a Galaxy Note 7, you’ll get a big discount on a Galaxy Note 8.
The company has been eager to make plenty of noise about the Note ahead of the launch of Apple’s latest iPhone which is expected in September.
