Leaked Samsung video confirms the Note 7 was just a bad dream

Leaked Samsung video confirms the Note 7 was just a bad dream
Most people who follow what's happening in the mobile world, or just watch news, might recall a phone made by Samsung, called "Note 7", being mentioned a couple of years ago. We distinctly remember it because it caused quite a commotion soon after its release. Now, however, Samsung is planting the seed of doubt in our heads and makes us question reality.

A promotional video that appears to be made by Samsung is now traversing the internet. The video is showing us the evolution of its Note line of smartphones. The part that makes us scratch our heads is that the model after the Note 5 is the Note 8

How can a manufacturer forget one of its own flagship phones? Is this video a rift between our universe and a parallel one where the Note 7 doesn't exist? Or is the Note 7 just another example of the Mandella effect? Maybe it is included in the video, but as a single frame, so our eyes can't perceive it? Or the leaker removed the Note 7 to troll us!

We think there's a more reasonable explanation. After all, it's pretty obvious. All those news mentions about the Note 7 were because it had the tendency to overheat and catch on fire. And while it's not really shocking that the exploding phone is missing from the video, one might think that a company like Samsung will be able to look past a single flaw to what was otherwise a good device. Sometimes trying to make something go away only makes it come back stronger.

We would prefer to see the full line-up in the official video on August 9th. What do you think about Samsung's decision to omit the Note 7?

Damned if they do, damned if they don't. I bet you that PA would have posted a similar article if Samsung did show that Note 7 in the video. You guys can't get over the Note 7 fiasco, and it's sad, as you expect this kind of journalism from an amateur website, not from people who we think of as professionals.

Well said They are trying hard to make Samsung look as bad as they can before the release of the new note 9.

Well its a good thing that over 40M people own a Note today, and less than 0.00000001% of them will ever even visit this site. Let alone see this video.

Ehh, the people who buy phones like the Note are probably more prevalent on tech sites than you might imagine. Also that 40M figure seems incredibly low... sources?

That’s typical PA they always troll Samsung before it’s product launch.

The Note 7 was a failure and they prefer to think it never existed, you can't blame them for that. Everybody knows what happened, you don't expect Samsung to be the ones to keep rehashing that event.

Just an odd promo video IMO. Obviously people are gonna be like, uhhhhh Note 7? I mean i get where they're coming from not wanting to add it, but just do a different promo video then.

Why didn't they just address the elephant in the room and make fun of it.

What do you think about Samsung's decision to omit the Note 7? Ever saw any company talking about biggest flaw of their predecessor product or about any product which failed while launching their new product?

Actually Apple does it quite regularly. Every iPhone model has had significant flaws. Connectivity issues, swelling batteries, explosions, breaking for unknown reason, slowed hardware and more. In fact based on numbers, Apple has had more issues with one phone model, than Samsung has had with all combined models. I thought i read something once that said, the iPhone 6 had a 62% failure rate. That's just one model. Also it had bending issues which Apple denied, and then later in court it is found Apple new they had the issue. But yet they are replacing the phones and repairing phones for free for people in japan who had a tragedy (which is good), but refused to repair or replace a phone they new was defective; and they have done with with several models before and since the iPhone 6.

I mean they could have at least put the Note 7 FE in there.

The video just excludes a phone that was taken off the market. Would Ford make a new commercial, showing cars it doesn't make anymore or was discontinue? When was the last time we seen a Escort or Pinto commercial? Those cars were so bad, that even when Ford shows a commercial with older cars, those models are never shown. Does this site normally have these types of articles?

Wow PA. You trying to start a flame war or what? Don’t get upset at the comments and delete them. You did this.

It's note 9 release time, so of course PhoneArena will start spread all the negative stuff....
