The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is going to be unveiled in just nine days at an event in New York City. Ahead of its announcement, Samsung has teased what you can expect from the handset in a new video. But, even by teaser standards, this one is light on details.
Samsung presents a list of terms which are then blocked out by an image of its S Pen, and succeeded by a revised version of the previous ideas. For example, the word “step” becomes “leap,” and the word “closed” becomes “open.” The clip ends with the hashtag #DoWhatYouCant; take a look at what I’m talking about below.
Though the video tells us almost nothing about the Note 8 itself, Samsung apparently pointing to its S Pen as the deliverer of these big new features; this is what is driving the video, this is what is going to make the “impossible,” “possible.”
Samsung’s proprietary stylus tends to receive yearly upgrades like the rest of the Galaxy Note devices’ hardware and software, whether it’s to deliver better handwriting recognition, or add further functions. We don’t yet have any ideas as to what the S Pen could deliver on the Note 8, but, if the teaser is any kind of indication, it’s going to be something significant.
“At Samsung, we believe thinking that you can’t is the greatest barrier to progress, so with each new device and service, we aim to find ways to help you unleash your potential, using bigger platforms for creative expression, bigger tools to capture precious moments, and bigger innovations to help bring your ideas to life,” wrote Samsung in a press statement accompanying the video.
