Today, you can head to stores and pick up Samsung's next device in the Note line, the Galaxy Note9. In order to commemorate the moment, the firm has released a new infographic, charting the device's line from its humble beginnings. While this is all well and good, and quite interesting, the firm has managed to erase history, removing the Galaxy Note7.
Samsung started the phablet trend with the Galaxy Note, which it launched in 2011. The handset was considered huge during its time, offering up a 5.3-inch display. While many scoffed at its size, Samsung would continue on the path, iterating on the idea that people needed larger screens. The Note Edge would introduce the world to a curved display, which would later become a staple on Samsung's higher-end handsets. By the time the Galaxy Note5 had arrived, Note devices started to gain considerable traction, no longer considered oversized.
The Galaxy Note7 was an impressive handset, checking all the right boxes, and holding many accolades. While it was poised to become the best handset of the year, reports of battery failure began to spread and soon, the company would issue a recall that would eventually lead Samsung to pull all units from the market and discontinue it. It was a very dark time for the firm so it comes as no surprise that the company has omitted the device from its latest infographic.
The firm did a lot in order to mitigate the damage and revisiting it would probably not be a great idea. But it could have at least maybe included the Galaxy Note Fan Edition as a nod to what the Note7 offered. Regardless, you can head to the source link if you'd like to learn more about the history of the Galaxy Note.
