Recently, Samsung seemed to have hinted that the Galaxy Note 8 release will happen soon. This is amidst reports of the possible termination of the Note series after the highly-talked about battery fiasco of its latest phablet.
A statement from Samsung on October 24 announced an upgrade program where customers who exchanged their Note 7 with either a Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge can trade it up for a Samsung Galaxy S8 or Note 8 phone when it arrives next year. The mere mention of Note 8 as an option naturally led to assumptions that the Korean tech titan will indeed release a new device for its popular phablet line. Quickly, these Note 8 speculations became the subject of several news reports posted by various publications including Reuters.
