The Galaxy Note 7 blunder isn’t hidden from anyone. The phone proved to be disastrous for the credibility that Samsung had built over the course of many years. Earlier, it was being said that Samsung will completely scrap the Note series, but the new reports suggest otherwise.
Samsung seems to be willing to go with the risk of launching a successor to a phone that has severely damaged its image. The company will have to go beyond its normal course and take extra care to ensure that the new not phone comes out to be perfect, and nothing below that. The consumers who will show their interest in a Note phone will first want to know if it is safe or not. Samsung will have to put extra efforts in this regard and the inform the people about it.
Last month, Samsung did reveal the exact reason why the Galaxy Note 7. The explosions happened due to the ill-fitted battery in a cramped casing. To avoid any such situation, Samsung is being said to source the batteries from a new supplier, and it has approached LG in this regard. LG Chem has been approached to supply the batteries for the Galaxy Note 8.
As per the claims made in several reports, Samsung will be bringing much to the table with the launch of Galaxy note 8. The phone is expected to sport a 4K display that would help in improving the VR experience for the users. The processor will also be among the best in the industry with the possibility of some added RAM capacity and dual-camera setup, following the Apple iPhone 7 Plus and many other Android phones recently launched with the tech.
Moreover, a new S-Pen is also expected with some added features and capabilities. Another exciting thing that Samsung is working on is Bixby, Samsung’s very own AI technology. It has been created after Samsung took over Viv Labs, that also created Siri. Bixby is expected to make its debut with the company’s SmartThings platform.
