The dream of seeing the successor of the Galaxy Note7 isn’t dead at all because Samsung’s mobile chief has stated that the company is indeed working on the arrival of the Galaxy Note 8, but before that, they will have to make sure that the announcement of the Galaxy S8 goes completely smoothly.
Samsung’s Mobile Chief Has Confirmed the Announcement of a Galaxy Note 8 But Hasn’t Provided Any Time Frame for Its Announcement
Dong-jin Koh (via CNET) has stated that the Galaxy Note brand is very much alive:
“I will bring back a better, safer and very innovative Note 8.”
In order to prevent potential accidents from taking place, Samsung has introduced a new and highly improved 8-point battery safety check in order to improve safety procedures for future devices. The executive also went onto say that during the investigative process, lots of consumers were loyal customers of the company’s smartphone lineup, which is possibly one reason why Samsung isn’t ready to kill the Galaxy Note brand right now.
“We found through the investigative process, we knew there are lots and lots of loyal Note customers.”
There are several additions that we can expect from the upcoming Note 8, with the most notable one being a 4K display. So apart from the 4K display, what other differences should we expect from the Galaxy Note 8? Recently, a leaked specification sheet from China detailed that Samsung was working on not one, but two high-end Exynos chipset variants with different processor clock speeds. It is possible that the Galaxy Note 8 comes outfitted with the powerful Exynos SoC version, which will also pack a more powerful GPU. In addition, the Note 8 might also provide support for the Shannon 359 modem, which to refresh your memory will provide support for just about all the network basebands around the globe, and they have been listed as follows:
This is going to be advantageous since a different model will not have to get rolled out for every single region and a universal unit will be compatible with the world’s cellular networks. Unfortunately, since the modem is expected to come after the Galaxy S8 announcement, we don’t believe that the latter is going to come with it. How do you feel about Samsung’s decision to continue the Galaxy Note brand? Let us know your thoughts right away.
