Many leaks saying that Samsung will release its new flagship smartphone Galaxy Note 8 in 2017 featuring an enlarged display. It is rumored to have a 6.2-inch screen size with a 90 percent screen to body ratio. This Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is undoubtedly the largest smartphone ever introduced in the market so far, if ever.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (2017)
Chris Smith reports for BGR that while some reports have indicated that Samsung will abandon the entire Galaxy Note brand, a new leak suggests that the Korean Company has already planned a Galaxy Note 8. Evan Blass, a notable person who leaks about the smartphone, tweeted that Samsung is making two Galaxy S8 models and a Galaxy Note 8 next year, 2017. "Samsung Galaxy S8 models are indeed skipping SM-G94 model numbers, will ship as SM-G950 & SM-G955," Blass said. "Know what else is in the works? SM-N950."
According to the Hot Hardware, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be available in 2 different size variants. The smaller one is 5.7-inch and the larger one is 6.2-inch screen size. The current flagship phone of the company, Galaxy S7 Edge, has a screen size of only 5.7-inch. Which means, that if ever the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with 6.2-inch will be released next year, it will have the biggest smartphone's screen exiting so far.
Smith, from BGR, notes that the number 4 is believed to bring bad luck in Korea, "which is why Samsung skips it in numbering schemes. So, in other words, the SM-N950 would be the successor to the SM-N930, which is the codename of the Galaxy Note 7." Samsung could still decide to cancel the Galaxy Note 8, of course. But for the moment, it's looking like Samsung is planning to introduce a new Note next year.
Although an early release is possible, there’s been no suggestion yet that there will be one, so, for now, we wouldn’t expect to see the Note 8 before August 2017.
