Samsung has a lot riding on the launch of the Galaxy Note 8. Like a defeated heavyweight champion coming back to the arena to reclaim his title, Samsung’s reputation is a bit bruised and battered but everyone is hoping to see a win. This latest teaser trailer from Samsung sets the stage for a pretty big comeback with some bold claims.
While we don’t get to see the Galaxy Note 8 itself, the teaser showcases an S-Pen striking through various words, suggesting that the Galaxy Note 8 will feature a refresh of the S-Pen alongside the new handset.
Even Samsung’s marketing statements are driving the “go big or go home” point, stating that they believe their newest phone will help you find ways to unleash your potential.
“At Samsung, we believe thinking that you can’t is the greatest barrier to progress, so with each new device and service, we aim to find ways to help you unleash your potential, using bigger platforms for creative expression, bigger tools to capture precious moments, and bigger innovations to help bring your ideas to life.”
