Samsung Galaxy Note 8 To Launch Second Half Of 2017; Company Not Giving Up On Note Line
After the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, reports came out stating that Samsung is ditching the brand. But recent reports are saying that a Note 8 is indeed launching this year amidst rumors of a rebranded phablet.
Samsung To Follow Up Note 7 With Phablet Of The Same Brand
A Samsung official previously said that the Galaxy Note 7 saw success when it was launched, Business Korea reported, before it was brought down by reports of its faulty batteries. "As the phablet market, which was developed by Samsung Electronics, has been growing, the company will release the Note series this year again," he said.
Samsung did not address the Galaxy Note 8 rumors at CES 2017, but U.S. branch President and COO Tim Baxter confirmed that they will continue innovating. Although rumors of the Note brand being discontinued were prevalent last year, it is now more likely for the South Korean company to launch another phablet in the series.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Specs, Release Date And Rumors
According to Pocket Lint, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 may be released in the latter half of the year, specifically around August or September, if the tech giant follows the traditional pattern. However, it is also possible that they decide to launch it earlier to make up for the loss of a 2016 flagship phablet.
As for specifications, not much is known for now, but it is believed that it will retain the dual-edge display. Rumors suggest that the screen resolution will be bumped up to 4K while maintaining the Super AMOLED display and Mobile HDR.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 might also follow the footsteps of the iPhone 7, which ditched the headphone jack and mechanical home button. The iris scanner and new S-Pen are expected to be featured as well. Nevertheless, these are all just rumors and speculations for now and should be taken with a grain of salt.
