Samsung's fans and critics were very interested to find out how the company planned on bouncing back from the Galaxy Note 7 recall. It did so in spectacular fashion with the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8. It obviously won't be stopping here. Samsung has said that Galaxy Note 9 features like the S Pen will be improved.
This was revealed by BJ Kang and Cue Kim of Samsung's Global Product Planning Group for mobile in an interview. They also revealed that the product planning process for the Galaxy Note 8 was far more intense than ever before. The company extended the assessment period to ensure maximum safety.
Galaxy Note 9 Features
Kim said that for the Galaxy Note 8, Samsung focused on improving the camera, the S Pen and the large display. That's because Samsung's research going back to the first Galaxy Note indicates that these are the features that users love the most.
Kang added that Samsung's top priority is to address the needs of the consumer. It observes consumer needs closely and then considers whether the new technology is capable of meeting those needs.
He also said that usually when one Note project ends, the team takes a small break before it starts working on the next device. This time, Samsung is not taking any breaks even though the Galaxy Note 8 product planning process was very challenging. Samsung is already considering how to approach the development of its next Note flagship.
It's also looking for ways to improve Galaxy Note 9 features like the S Pen. The new Galaxy Note isn't due until the fall next year so the team has a lot of time on its hands to come up with something great.
