The news of Samsung Note 8 so far

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 was a fantastic Smartphone parts , until the battery issues destroyed its reputation and left it with a legacy of being the only phone to be singled out before boarding a flight.

We expected the Note family to die with the Note 7, but there’s murmurs that it lives on, reborn like a phoenix from the ashes of its forebear. Here is everything we know so far about the Note 8, based on the rumours.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8: Release date

Samsung has pretty much confirmed the release of a Note 8 after itannounced an upgrade scheme in South Korea following the Note 7 debacle. The scheme allowed anyone who bought a Note 7 to get aGalaxy S7 or S7 edge for half price, after which they would be able to upgrade to the Galaxy S8, now available, or Note 8 when it is released in 2017.

The device is apparently codenamed “Great” and SamMobile has claimed its model number is SM-N950F so that’s worth looking out for in any future leaks.

As to specifically when the Note 8 will be released, that’s anyone’s guess at the moment. Traditional patterns would suggest the end of the year, around August or September time, but Samsung might do it earlier in order to ensure it has a flagship phablet in the market that isn’t two years old and doesn’t explode.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8: Design

Currently, rumours are few and far between when it comes to the Note 8’s design. We wouldn’t expect it to stray too much from what the Note 7 delivered, though it wouldn’t be surprising to see the bezels reduce like the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.

The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, which debuted on 29 March, ditch the physical home button in favour of an almost all-screen front, with the fingerprint sensor repositioning to the rear, next to the camera lens. We’d therefore expect the Note 8 to do similar, sticking with a curved display like the Note 7 and two new Galaxy S devices.
