After the Galaxy Note 7 incident which took place many assumed that Samsung might discontinue the Note lineup and there even were rumors that we might have a S-Pen integrated in the S-series itself. But now yesterday Samsung’s official from electronics sector stated about company’s thought for the Note 8 which will be coming in second half of 2017.
South Korea Official from Samsung said:
“The Galaxy Note 7 was very popular before user reports began circulating about devices that exploded or caught on fire while charging. As the phablet market, which was developed by Samsung Electronics, has been growing, the company will release the Note series this year again.”
Samsung will introduce 2K resolution displays in the Galaxy S8, but it will use 4K resolution displays in the Galaxy Note 8 to realize improved virtual reality (VR) functions. I heard that it will connect with new Gear VR wearable.
