The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is as gone as 2016. But Samsung will come back in 2017 with a follow-up device that, hopefully, is not going to explode. The battery disaster of Galaxy Note 7 had given a great headache to Samsung. But even then Samsung has decided not to give up on Note family. It has decided to continue with it by launching Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Samsung has ensured that this time it’s going to be safer and better than its predecessor. But still, all are waiting for when Samsung is going to announce and release its new Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
Samsung may have held structural integrity responsible for the disaster of its batteries in Note 7, but we can say it was all a part of the story. The two main factors behind this headache caused by Note 7 were Samsung’s goal to:
- launch its device earlier than iPhone 7 series
- have a bigger battery in Galaxy Note 7 .
Samsung is now making efforts to avoid any inconvenience by sourcing its battery cells from another supplier. Reports state that the firm will bring in fellow Korean OEM LG, or at least its subsidiary, LG Chem, to make battery cells for the Galaxy Note 8. LG hasn’t manufactured any exploding battery smartphone till date, so this mean the Galaxy Note 8 will be a better and safer device for users.
We would wish that the Note 8 come with a Quad-HD+ or even 4K SuperAMOLED display. There is increasing talk that it could get the latter, helping it to become the Note 8 Samsung’s first 4K smartphone. With the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus display size increases to 5.7in and 6.2in respectively – in part due to much slimmer bezels – it’s also expected that the Note’s traditional size 5.7in display will also be enlarged to around 6.2in.
Besides this, the Note 8 is expected to have a pressure-sensitive display too.It’s probably to be:
- under 8mm thick
- along with dual cameras
- a high-capacity (circa-3500mAh) battery with adaptive fast charging feature
- fast wireless charging
- USB-C support

If we talk about the core hardware we are aware that the Note series is basically a slightly more powerful version of the S series that is released earlier that year. The Galaxy S8 is already a hugely powerful phone. It comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and 4GB of RAM. Expect the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to have a minimum 6GB RAM and 64GB storage.
There were whispers that Samsung would be giving up on its Note family, but leaving its second annual flagship launch may have a great effect on the profit margin of Samsung.
IFA Executive Director Jens Heithecker informed reporters on Saturday that he would like to see the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 disclosed at IFA 2017 in Berlin. The original Note was presented and released at IFA 2011, and Samsung decided the same consumer electronics event to launch its Note 2, Note 3, and Note 4 in the years that followed. Then, Samsung chose for standalone shows for its other Note 5 and Note 7, as it tried to better position the launch of its phone to strongly compete against Apple’s iPhones.
“My personal perspective is that IFA would be the better place (to unveil the new Note smartphone),” Heithecker said at an IFA press conference, according to The Korea Times. “The big advantage is that we have a lot of media and journalists from all around the world in Berlin. It is not possible to bring them all together in other cities wherever it is, in August. That’s our offer.”
“I will bring back a better, safer and very innovative Note 8,” Samsung’s mobile chief, DJ Koh, has recently told CNET.
Fortunately, the company has made it confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be launched soon. And in Korea, it will offer Note 7 buyers with 50 percent discounts if they will upgrade to the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note 8.
Apple will likely come up with its new iPhone 8 and iPhone 7s phones during the second week of September. It’s going to be quite interesting to see how Samsung compete against the iPhone this year.
