Samsung Electronics hosted its 'Galaxy Note 8 Media Day' event on Tuesday in Seoul, the same event that was held last month in New York City, to promote its latest model of the Galaxy Note series.
The series has made a comeback with some noticeable featuresafter Samsung's disastrous recall of its previous Galaxy Note 7 model.
"Despite the unfortunate eventwe continued to experiment with new features for our loyal customers. Through this process, I believe the Galaxy Note 8 has been reborn as the greatest of the Note series."
One of the greatest strengths of Samsung smartphones has been the S-Pen.
Now, users can express themselves in more diverse ways, one being live messaging.
With the pen, they can draw their own animated messages on a canvas and share it through text messages, emails, and social media.
New features unique to the Galaxy Note 8, include 'app-pairing' that allows simultaneous use of two applications
and a dual camera, allowing users to take wide-angle, *and zoom-in pictures with a single shot.
The Galaxy Note 8 has garnered a lot of media attention in recent weeks, not only for the device itself but also for Samsung's rivalry with Apple.
The U.S. firm has unveiled its 10th anniversary iPhone,'iPhone X' as well as new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus models.
With the new FaceID system and OLED display, they are likely to lead to intense competition with Samsung and other companies.
Nevertheless, Samsung is confident that it will maintain its dominant share in the premium smartphone market saying the Note 8 is devoted to technology that actually *matters, to the daily lives of its consumers.
