The company faced troubles due to the batteries that caused explosions through overheating, thereby ultimately forcing the company to recall the devices and permanently banning the line-up altogether. The launch of Galaxy Note 8 provides Samsung with a good opportunity to revive its lost glory.

The report further suggests that Galaxy Note 8 will probably be built out of metal on the sides and front; meanwhile, the back panel might be based on glass. The device’s display will be curved – similar to the kind found on Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones. The company is expected to introduce two variants under #The Galaxy Note 8 smartphone i.e. one that will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 system-on-chip based on 64-bit octa-core, and the other one that will be based on the company’s Exynos 8895 processor.

However, the one that is powered by Exynos 8895 system-on-chip might only be available exclusively in the Chinese markets.

As far as other specifications are concerned, the device is speculated to feature a 6.3-inch QHD Plus SUPER AMOLED Infinity display. On the storage front, the Note 8 is rumored to come featuring 6GB of RAM. The company might provide three options to choose from - 64GB, 128GB and 256GB ROM. According to a recent leak, the device will most probably house a 3,000mAh battery with Fast Charging technology support. The device is further rumored to sport a dual rear camera setup with two 13-megapixel sensors. The smartphone might run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS, and will probably be home to Samsung’s custom UI. The device is expected to be priced at around £700, which is slightly more expensive than its siblings, Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones. Stay tuned for more tech news. #Samsung Galaxy Note
