The IFA event in Berlin has always been close to Samsung’s heart. The company used the said event to unveil the very first edition of the Galaxy Note smartphone. Since 2011, Samsung has used the same event to launch most of the Galaxy Note phones apart from the Note 7. Now, it would seem that the people at IFA Berlin are once again hoping for Samsung to choose the event for the Galaxy Note 8 unveiling.
According to a report from The Korea Times, IFA Executive Director Jens Heithecker expects that Samsung will be using the said event to launch its upcoming flagship phone. He also added that the event will be the best place for the company to unveil its latest device due to its huge media coverage not only in Berlin but around the world too.
For those who do not remember, Samsung would have used the IFA event last year for the release of the Galaxy Note 7. Unfortunately, Samsung made a hasty decision to bump the release date of the said phone by a month. This miscalculation has caused the company dearly, even prematurely discontinuing the Galaxy Note 7. In hindsight, if Samsung has used the event instead of rushing the release of the Note 7, perhaps its troubles would not have happened at all.
For now, it is still uncertain whether Samsung will use the IFA 2017 event to unveil the Galaxy Note 8. However, it might as well choose the venue to launch the said phone as it might not have any big competition this year anyway.
This is mainly due to a recent report by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo saying that Apple might delay the launch of the iPhone 8.
The Galaxy Note 8 is Samsung’s next Android smartphone offering for 2017. The Korean phone maker has yet to make an official statement about the phone’s impending launch. However, there are rumors that Samsung is already gearing up for a big event sometime in September this year. For more updates on the Galaxy Note 8, be sure to check us out at TheBitbag.
