Galaxy Note 8 wins the ‘Flagship Smartphone of the Year’ award in India
After the Galaxy Note 7 debacle, which cost Samsung a whopping $17 billion, questions were raised about the viability of the Galaxy Note brand. Many believed that the Galaxy Note brand has turned into liability for Samsung, and thus may be killed forever. A year later, it is safe to say all those predictions have turned out to be wrong. Far from being dead, the Galaxy Note 8 has been earning praise from reviewers, customers and various quarters of the industry.
After winning the ‘Gadget of the Year’ award at the India Mobile Congress in September, the Galaxy Note 8 has won the ‘Flagship Smartphone of the Year’ at the Exhibit Tech Awards 2017 today in Gurgaon, India. Samsung also bagged a win in the wearables category with the Gear S3 winning the ‘Wearable Gadget of the Year’. Clearly, a good day for Samsung at the awards ceremony!
Since the launch of Galaxy Note 8 in September, the sales have been strong. In some markets, it was even able to beat the iPhone 8 sales. With robust sales and praise from critics, it is certain that the Galaxy Note series is back and here to stay.
