However, now we have a new report which talks about something different from the Galaxy Note 8. Yes, according to the new report which we have, it looks like Samsung is working on a wearable device. No, we aren’t talking about VR since we already have a lot of them in the market and in fact, even Samsung has just recently updated its VR headset.
