Samsung will offer big freebies to sell the Note 8 before the iPhone 8 launch
Samsung’s in a precarious position. It needs the Galaxy Note 8 to be a success, given the way the Note 7 debacle went. But it’s launching just weeks before Apple is slated to unveil the iPhone 8, a supposedly massive upgrade that people have been waiting years for.
Even if Samsung comes out with a great phone, competing with the Apple fanboy equivalent of Steve Jobs’ second child is going to be tough. So Samsung is apaprently going to go all-in to persuade people to pull the trigger on the Note 8 before they even get a chance to set eyes on the iPhone 8.
