A new photo of the alleged Galaxy Note 8 surfaced online, and it looks just like the Galaxy S8 Plus. The S-Pen in the image suggests us that it might be the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. It seems like Note 8 will feature a curved edge display on the front with almost no bezels.
Note 8 is expected to be powered by Snapdragon 835 chipset or else Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 SoC. As a matter of fact, the Galaxy S8 with Exynos chipset outperformed the Snapdragon 835 variant in AnTuTu and GeekBench 4.
To recap, It’s been six months since Samsung took the decision to stop sales and shipments of Galaxy Note 7 around the globe following its bombing campaign. About 2.5 million devices were recalled, and Samsung was left out of pocket to the tune of around $5 billion.
After months of investigation, Samsung confirmed that the explosions were caused by the faulty batteries–the insulation between the electrodes got weakened due to overheating and it, in turn, caused short-circuiting. Samsung recovered more than 98 percent of the devices shipped around the world and gave customers a full refund.
After the Note 7 fiasco, Samsung tried to restore faith in customers by making a great comeback with its bleeding-edge flagship, the Galaxy S8. Besides, Samsung is seeking to sell refurbished Galaxy Note 7’s by upgrading them with new batteries.
Samsung is trying hard this time not to repeat the mistake again and if everything goes according to the plan South Korean tech giant will unleash the handset in Q3 of 2017. As of now, these are only rumors so take them with a grain of salt. We will provide you more information as we learn more.
