Galaxy Note 8
Written By: Cassandra Bondie

The last time a Samsung Galaxy Note model was released, it wreaked havoc on consumers across the United States. The phones were liable to explode or overheat while charging or sitting in a confined space. The Samsung brand has suffered for the oversight – even created a step-by-step security process to be shared with consumers before the company’s next smartphone release.

Now, after the successful release of the Samsung Galaxy S8, a Note 8 is expected to follow. Details about the up-and-coming smartphone were leaked earlier this month, with information shared on websites like Forbes, The Verge, and Mashable.

One major detail shared regarded camera status. The Note 8 is designed with a dual camera system. According to Forbes:

“It is important to Samsung’s status that is uses the new technology. The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are currently pushing the limits of single lens camera technology. Arguably the two handsets are at the top of the smartphone charts for photo quality, even with Apple’s efforts with the dual camera on the iPhone 7 Plus. But dual cameras are the new black, and even if a detailed examination of the quality of an image shows the Galaxy pictures to be better, perception is swinging behind the idea that dual camera solutions are better.”

The leak also hints at a late-August release date. This means Samsung would release the Note 8 before Apple releases its iPhone 8 – a smart move for the company.

According to Mashable, other details include:

“Citing an unnamed source, Reuters reports Samsung plans to hold a launch event in New York City for the much-awaited Galaxy Note 8 smartphone in the second half of August. The report also says the Note 8 will have a curved screen that is a bit larger than the 6.2-inch Galaxy S8 Plus. However, the Note 8 will have a dual-camera system on the back, similar to systems on the iPhone 7 Plus or OnePlus 5.”

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects a strong year for Samsung, which is still recovering from 2016, when the Galaxy Note 7 was removed from the market altogether.

It’s important to mark that the Galaxy Note 7 recently returned to the market as a refurbished phone under a new name. The phone is mainly being marked in South Korea, the country where Samsung is based. Samsung chose to eliminate the refurbished piece from American markets, instead wanting to focus on the newest Galaxy S8 and Note 8 releases.

Whether or not the company is using proper precautions, Samsung’s newest release has helped the Korean business gain footing in the tech world once again.

On Tech Radar:

“The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 release date is just two months away…it’s also less likely to get Android O and an in-screen fingerprint sensor, but will beat the iPhone 8 and iPhone 7S to market. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the biggest comeback story in phones following all of that disastrous Galaxy Note 8 failures last autumn.”

It will be interesting to see what happens when the release day hits.
