Samsung has released its first quarter financial results for this year and it shows interestingly that the South Korean tech company have ridden a good path of the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco. Samsung also confirmed that their profits are looking good, thanks to Galaxy S8 and S8+. Today, another confirmation has been revealed, that is Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is coming this year.
Kiranjeet Kaur, IDC Asia/Pacific's research manager for client devices, said that Samsung does announce a Galaxy S series phone in the first half of this year and a Galaxy Note series in the second half. “So I am not sure if Samsung is alluding to the next Note or if they want to introduce a new series," he added. Samsung If Galaxy Note 8 will not be the name of the next device, it could be a new series name in order to avoid any questions or doubts that may arise because of the Note7 incident.
A spokesperson said that Samsung cannot comment anymore on “the future product plan.” However, Samsung Mobile president DJ Koh confirmed earlier this year that Samsung fans may look forward to “a better, safer, and very innovative Note 8” that might launch at some point. Clearly, that confirms that the much rumored Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is coming before the year ends.
Samsung may not have named a specific smartphone for Galaxy Note 8 specifically in its press release, as reported by BGR. However, fans and enthusiasts already know that a new Galaxy Note device arrives each year in either August or September. That means the confirmed Galaxy Note 8 might be here on that months.
After all, there’s no other rumored flagship that Samsung is planning to launch in the coming months. Even if, there are rumors that a foldable Galaxy X smartphone may be unveiled this year, but utmost news claim that Samsung will just conduct a limited trial run to test the market. The Galaxy Note 7 launched at $850, so expect a price for the Galaxy Note 8 to be slightly higher than this.
