Samsung's double-recall program has already come to an end. For consumers, this just means that the Note 7 is no longer one of their options. But for Samsung, this is a big game changer. If people can move on from the explosion saga without issues, Samsung may not. The pressure given to the company at this point is no joke. This is probably why there have been rumors saying that Samsung will no longer release the Galaxy Note 8. Without the controversial recall, the Note 8 is expected to launch around August and September 2017.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Might Be Cancelled

It's not the Galaxy Note 8 that has issues. It's the Note brand that is bringing in negative connotations to consumers. With that said, it's highly likely that Samsung will no longer launch the Galaxy Note 8. A Techno Buffalo report says that Samsung is indeed planning to get rid of the Note series and just focus on a single flagship in the years to come. Clearly, the company might want to work harder on their products' quality assurance so as to avoid encountering the same problem they encountered this year.

Samsung Might Also Ditch Its Phablet Line Altogether

Previous reports suggests that Samsung could actually opt for a re-brand instead of a total phablet ban. However, according to Korea Herald, ever since Samsung decided to discontinue the Note 7, market experts believe that this is already a prelude to the total discontinuation of the Note series.

It has been pointed out that Samsung's A-game in the mobile market competition could be the culprit in their 2016 disgrace. It was said that because the company has been splitting its attention towards two flagships, they might be missing out on the quality assurance of their products. Consumers and Note fans may not be entirely in favor of the removal of the phablet line. However, it's undeniable that this is a viable step in improving the performance of Samsung's smartphone division.
