After the successful unveiling of the Galaxy S8, Samsung is headed towards a new flagship phone, the Galaxy Note 8. According to the latest news, the company has already started the development of the phablet's firmware. Right now, the software build numbers of the Note 8 has already surfaced and its code name has also already been leaked.
As per Sam Mobile, the Galaxy Note 8 is code named "Great". The upcoming phone also has confirmed firmware numbers which are N950FXXU0AQC6 / N950FOXM0AQC6 / N950FXXU0AQC6. Nevertheless, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is not the only Note phone that Samsung is working on right now. Last week, the company has confirmed that refurbished Note 7 units will be released sometime soon. Now, the firmware numbers for this device has also been confirmed: N935LKLU2AQD2 / N935LLUC2AQD2 / N935LKLU2AQD2.
So far, details about the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 are still scarce. Fans can expect more concrete information to arrive as the phablet's launch date draws nearer. The only things that Samsung has confirmed about the Note 8 are that the phone will be "safer" and "more innovative" than ever.
As per GSM Arena, there is a really good chance that the Galaxy Note 8 will share some of the major features of the Galaxy S8 series. This includes RAM size, CPU power, camera specs and more. There are also possibilities that the company would slap a dual camera system on the Note 8 series. Nevertheless, things can still change regarding the dual-cam as Samsung could also be saving it for the Galaxy S9.
As far as the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 release date is concerned, the company normally releases it on the second half of the year. The infamous Note 7 was launched August last year so the company may also be repeating that schedule this 2017. Samsung has just unveiled the Galaxy S8 series and is yet to start the actual release of the product. This means that the company is still pretty early in the completion of the Galaxy Note 8 series.
