Galaxy Note 8 Enterprise Edition launched in the US

Samsung has launched the Enterprise Edition of the Galaxy Note 8 in the US, following a launch in South Korea and Germany a couple of weeks ago. The Galaxy Note 8 Enterprise Edition is made for businesses and corporations; it’s got the same specs as the regular Galaxy Note 8 (read our review here) but is loaded with business-focused software for enhanced security and device management.

Galaxy Note 8 for businesses

Samsung calls the Enterprise edition a “business-first offering”, and the phone comes with Samsung Knox Configure and Samsung Enterprise Firmware Over the Air (E-FOTA) to help IT admins remotely configure devices and keep their business data secure while allowing employees to have the full experience of the flagship Note 8. Samsung is also promising “PC-class product lifecycle support,” which includes a promise of monthly security updates for three years and a guarantee that the Enterprise Edition of the phone will be available for purchase for the next two years, so enterprises can be assured that they won’t suddenly have to buy a different device in a few months.

The Galaxy Note 8 Enterprise Edition is priced at $994 and can be purchased through “authorized Samsung channel partners.”

Spoken like an absolute lunatic. The Note 8 has zero lag and Android is as secure as secure gets, given any platform can be hacked.
