Samsung indirectly confirms that there will be a Galaxy Note 8

Those who've purchased the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in South Korea and will opt to replace their phone with a Samsung Galaxy S7 or a Galaxy S7 edge will be given the chance to upgrade to the Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy Note 8 next year. The upgrade will not be offered for free. Instead, customers will have to pay for half of the price of the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge (depending on which phone they've replaced their Note 7 for) to qualify for the upgrade. Essentially, the upgrade will be offered through a discounted variant of Samsung's Galaxy Upgrade Program.
One interesting detail that Samsung had indirectly confirmed is that there will be a Galaxy Note 8. After Samsung issued the second (and final) recall of the Galaxy Note 7, some rumors claimed that the South Korean tech giant might kill off its Note series. As it turns out, this was nothing but speculation.
At the moment, it is unknown if Samsung plans to extend the availability of the upgrade scheme to any other countries besides its home market.
What do you guys think, is anyone happy to learn that the Samsung Galaxy Note series was not discontinued?

Any reason why PA is the only site not reporting the exploded iphone in Australia?

If I were samsung I'd still release the note 8 but rename it in countries which had the most victims of the exploding incident. The fact is not many consumers are aware that an incident like this has even happened(depending on their region)

why do people act like there was never any type of recall for safety issues before? as if the Note 7 was the first ever product to go thru a recall (although a double recall) LOL it wont stop me from buying future samsung smartphones in the future

It happens fairly often, you can Google most electronic brands with recall and find something. It's rare enough that most users will never have experienced this so the reaction isn't that surprising. The Note brand should continue though, definitely.

My plan did not allow me to upgrade to Note7 (dodged that bullit), but most likely I would upgrade to the Next best Note or whoever beats their device as far as specs, usability and safety... no wait, yeah, safety- but Battery life, hopefully we get away from non-removeable battery.
