With Samsung confirming that the Galaxy Note 7’s hardware fault is with the construction of the handset’s battery the biggest question on consumers lips is: will Samsung continue to use the Note name for its flag ship devices.

The answer is yes. During a recent interview with CNET Samsung’s Mobile Chief D.J. Koh told the publication that the brand is very much alive.

“lots and lots of loyal customers”

Kol hints that the new Note, which is yet to be officially announced, will be safer, better and much more innovative. For those Note fans that hung on to their shiny, yet ultimately dangerous new Note 7 until Samsung pushed the kill-switch button, this will be delightful news.
