The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 release is still in doubt. This because Samsung is not showing interest in continuing the Galaxy Note series.
Samsung launched the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 with lots of hopes. But the ill-fated phone disappointed Samsung by attracting very few customers.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was hobbled by a battery issue which affected the brand?s reputation. It came to a point that Samsung withheld the Galaxy Note 7 sales in order to fix the battery issues. But the newly launched phones also encountered the same problem. Samsung refunded customers who had placed a pre-order of the phone. The Galaxy Note 7’s failure was a shock even for Samsung.
“We have always said right from the beginning that we didn’t think it would have a dramatic long-term impact on Samsung, so far we are being proved right. It wiped out profitability, but I think they will record a spectacularly strong fourth quarter because they have upped their game in terms of marketing with the S7 and Edge and the S6 and entry level,” Ben Wood, chief of research at CCS Insight, told CNBC.
In the previous year, many customers exchanged the Galaxy Note 7 for an S7 or S7 Edge. Altogether, Galaxy Note 7 was a huge loss for Samsung. Now the company wants to launch a device which will be a massive hit in the handset market. Few rumors are claiming that Samsung wants to discontinue the Galaxy Note series. So, Galaxy Note 8 is not a possibility.
The brand will launch the Galaxy S8 as its flagship device for 2017. Millions of fans are waiting for the best phone from Samsung. To reach the expectations of fans, Samsung is adding brand new features into Samsung Galaxy S8.
