Samsung Codenames The Galaxy Note 8 As 'Great'
Ever since the debacle with the Galaxy Note 7, the world has kept a close eye on Samsung and what its next moves are going to be. New reports indicate that the company is not going to give up on the production line and will release a successor. Moreover, the tech giant has already internally dubbed the unit as "Great."
According to SamMobile, Samsung has given the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 a codename "Great." As the name implies, the Korean company is likely to put all it can into one of its forthcoming flagships. And with the battery explosions of the Note 7 still in clear memory, there is really no option but to hit it out of the part this time around.
The publication also reported on the model number of the Galaxy Note 8, which will apparently be SM-N950F. Those in the know will note that the company has opted to skip the number 4. This is because, in Korean culture, the number is an unlucky one. Whether or not the superstition will do anything to help the success of the unit will need to be determined at a later date.
As noted by BGR, however, Samsung has more than just its history to tread through. The publication claimed that the Galaxy Note 8 is likely to be released after the iPhone 8, or whatever Apple decides to call its upcoming 10th-anniversary device. The Cupertino-based tech giant is expected to arrive in the market with a remarkable redesign. To stand a chance in the market, the Note 8 will need to make leaps in technology.
As further proof that the company is not finished with its Note line, it has also been reported that Samsung might release a refurbished Note 7. The device, however, will only likely be released in South Korea. This might be an attempt to curb the losses from last year. But with news that the Note 8 will be debuting this year as well, it is possible that the Note 7 will not be a popular choice.
