On August 23, Samsung announced the next generation Note 8, promising to enable workers to make a greater difference and to do more, faster and better. Their focus was a better mobile experience for the way people do business now. That meant concentrating on the things that matter not just to IT departments, but to every department.

Samsung and MobileIron work on many solutions that enable businesses adopt and securely use Note 8 devices in their environment. Together we power a range of organizations —government, healthcare, retail/hospitality, education, and financial services. With customizable solutions, our mobile innovations are a fit for every industry.

Samsung’s Note 8 is more than just a phone, they’re how we interact with our work and our world. They sit at the center of the Galaxy ecosystem—which includes wearables, virtual reality, tablets, DeX, and a variety of solutions that combine to make your organization smarter and stronger.

Samsung and MobileIron enable organizations to:

  • Be More Impactful: The Note 8 allows you to make a greater difference by giving you the power to get it done.. Get bright, sharp, true-to life colors with the Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Display and fit more in our largest Infinity Screen. We also developed the world’s first Dual Camera with Optical Image Stabilization on both lenses, which allows you to capture great portraits and enjoy low-light clarity for incredible photos.

    With the Note 8, you don’t need to worry about the number of apps you have open. The 10nm processor and 6GB RAM will keep you running at top speed. When you need maximum processing power, you’re already there.

    MobileIron’s EMM allows organizations to stream enterprise applications and to securely deploy apps on the Note 8 device. This will enable the organizations to truly take advantage of the processing power and user experience powered by the Note 8 device.

  • Be More Efficient: The Note 8 is built to allow you to do more, faster and better. Express yourself in new ways with the smartest S Pen yet. With the powerful, built-in S Pen, take notes without unlocking your screen, handwrite messages and mark-up PDFs. The Note 8 also supports Samsung DeX, so you can transform your mobile device into a full desktop experience.

    With the Note 8, you will never miss a message. Dual messenger lets you separate your work life from your personal life when you have multiple accounts on a single messaging app. You simply run the app as two separate instances. That way, you can be logged into both accounts at once to stay in touch with everyone.

  • Be More Secure: the Note 8 features Knox—a defense-grade, hardware-based security platform that protects the phone from the moment it boots up all the way through launching an app. MobileIron powers Samsung Knox and the Knox solution is trusted by 30 governments and voted the “most strong” mobile security platform by Gartner. The Samsung Secure Wi-Fi server uses advanced network encryption and tunneling technologies to protect you from hackers so your phone is safe and secure for doing work over the internet, no matter where work takes you.

    Knox’s secure customization features provide a comprehensive set of controls so IT can set policies based on specific enterprise-needs, while fully integrating with MobileIron. MobileIron helps IT teams securely perform bulk enrollment, auto-reenrollment and activation of Note 8 devices and deliver containerized applications to both corporate owned and end user owned Note 8 devices. With the MobileIron EMM platform, IT teams can ensure that the Note 8 devices are fully enterprise ready.

The Note 8: designed to overcome today’s biggest mobile challenges.
