Recent reports have given indications that Samsung is on the verge of releasing an all-new Galaxy Note 8 in 2017. According to rumors, it should be release similarly with previous Galaxy smartphones, which is probably a mid-August release date.
The troublesome Note 7
The trouble that the tragic Galaxy Note 7 has brought to Samsung and to the people will always be. Events of the device catching fire and even exploding, up to the point it had to be recalled twice, was a very traumatic experience for not just the consumers but Samsung as well.
According to reports, Samsung already claims that it now know the cause, and will be reporting their findings sometime this year. But despite that, Samsung seems to be moving on and are now focused towards reviving their lost reputation through the upcoming Note 8.
Samsung to pursue VR aspirations
According to reports, it has been mentioned that a new and improved design that features a 4K display will be featured on the Galaxy Note 8. This would give indications that Samsung is continuing its campaign of incorporating Virtual Reality on its future phones.
Samsung to develop own AI assistant
As we can recall, Samsung has recently purchased Viv Labs, an Artificial Intelligence assistant company, who were the prime creators of Apple's Siri. This has risen some expectations that Samsung is also planning to integrate their own AI assistant in both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8.
Samsung to feature bezel-free design
Samsung is also rumored to be working on a bezel-less design that will enable a much larger screen on their upcoming mobile devices. This will also come in addition to optical fingerprint scanners that will be incorporated into the glass, which could also mean the home button will be no more.
Despite all the hype, nothing is really known for now. Any potential Galaxy Note 8 release date is still months away so we will have to take all these rumors with a grain of salt.
