There’s really no reason to keep on reliving the nightmare that some would call the Galaxy Note 7 as Samsung wants consumers to forget about the overheating issues, literally. As a means of making amends with consumers and getting the Phablet back on track as the best of the best, Samsung is looking to over-deliver with the Galaxy Note 8 concept.
So what exactly does this statement mean anyways? So many consumers have written off what was looking to be the best smartphone of 2016 and turned their focus towards another Galaxy concept, the Galaxy S8. If you’re one of the many who are planning on overlooking the Phablet for something a bit more stable, then let us be the first to tell you you’ve got another thing coming.
We’re already hearing plenty that Samsung plans on packing the Note 8 full of more features than we can imagine. Some of the biggest leaks out of South Korea suggest the next generation Phablet will be bigger, faster, and of course, fire resistant. With this being said, it wouldn’t surprise us to see the Note 8 sport a 5.10-inch display with a true 4K UHD resolution of 3840 x 2160. There’s no denying that 4K resolution devices are replacing the near decade old 1080p resolution, so hearing the latest comes as no surprise.
There’s already a great deal of attention amassing for the Galaxy Note 8, many of whom are loyal Phablet’ers who have either refused to give up their Note 7’s or those like us who are holding out for the alternative solution. Samsung has all-but pulled the plug on the Note 7 while disconnecting unreturned handhelds from their network all-together in their latest attempt to get consumers to return what they’ve wanted so bad.
The idea of over-delivering with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will bode well for consumers as we fully expect Sammy to throw some goodies our way at the time of launch. Considering how much money the Korean tech giant lost with the Note 7 debacle, it’ll definitely take some gentle persuasion in enticing consumers to give the next gen Phablet a second look.
According to the latest leaks, the launch of the Galaxy Note 8 is expected to take place August 2017 worldwide which puts it slightly ahead of the iPhone 7s. With a launch price comparable to that of the Note 7, it’ll be interesting to see if consumers are willing to shell out the premium price for an uncertain flagship.
