Samsung Galaxy Note 8 release date, news: Device to launch at MWC 2017? Specs still undisclosed


As of late, Samsung is still being bogged down by the recent fiasco brought about by the Galaxy Note 7. Albeit the debacle, the current word on the street is that the South Korean tech giant won’t be giving up on the Note lineup. The company is said to have gone back to the drawing board to devise a follow-up to the incendiary Galaxy Note 7.

It is rumored that the new Galaxy Note 8 will be presented at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next year. Moreover, the phablet is said to be introduced alongside the hyped Samsung Galaxy S8.

Reports also suggest that these upcoming smartphones will serve as some sort of damage control as they are said to be included in Samsung’s recall and exchange program. Users who bought the defective Galaxy Note 7 will be eligible for the said scheme. However, reports suggest that the exchange program will initially be offered in Samsung’s motherland. Users need not fret, though, as there is a strong possibility that the said program will be offered in other countries provided that the scheme does indeed materialize.

Avid followers of the company are pretty much aware by now of the growing number of exploding Galaxy Note 7s in different parts of the globe. As a result, Samsung decided to pull the plug on the volatile handset. In addition, aviation authorities from all over also released their respective rulings that the smartphone was indeed a flight hazard due to cases of the phone catching fire midflight.

As of late, specifications of the yet to be unveiled phablet are still undisclosed. However, fans expecting that the company will focus more on safety rather than giving the device features that might compromise its quality.
