With all the issues that have been thrown at Samsung after their fiery Note 7s were discontinued, it seems like the Korean tech company is not ready to go down just yet. After the Note 7's failure, it seems like Samsung is now moving on and is now focusing on the production of their upcoming phones, The Samsung Galaxy S8, and the Note 8. According to some reports, it appears that both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 are now currently being readied for launch next year. This would also indicate that the Galaxy Note series will still be going on, despite the issues with its battery after the Note 7 incidents.
About the Galaxy Upgrade Program
As of now, Samsung is still currently making up for its Note 7 failure by launching a program in its home country of South Korea. Entitled, the "Galaxy Upgrade Program," this latest Samsung promo encourages Note 7 customers to exchange their faulty phones for an S7 or S7 Edge, which in turn, they are going to receive a discounted Galaxy S8 or Note 8 next year. Right now, the promo is still available within South Korea, with no indications to whether it will come to the US or other countries affected by the Note 7 issue.
Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8 expectations
With all things said, the main goal for Samsung would be to revive its reputation as a very credible tech-producing company. Samsung's comeback story will begin when it will finally launch the Galaxy S8. Rumors have been saying that it will happen on February 28 at the Mobile World Congress. Recent rumors also say that the Galaxy S8 might be delayed by up to two weeks, as the Samsung engineers are still trying to solve the Note 7s overheating battery problem. However, when it does come out in the open, the S8 is going to be a lot thinner, in favor of a more curvy design, a much-boosted RAM, and two camera features on the back.
