Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is dead, Galaxy 8 will be born.

One recent rumor suggested that the Samsung will fix its Galaxy Note7 problem by launching  the galaxy S8 earlier. According to the company, the Samsung Galaxy Note S8 and Galaxy Note 8 are both being readied for launch next year. This is just an indication that the Samsung Galaxy Note name wont be retired despite the fact that it is tied to several battery explosions and two recalls.

Last Monday, Samsung revealed a new early upgrade program for Note 7 adopters in South Korea who exchanged their handset for a Galaxy S7 or S7 edge series. The said program will give these costumers the chance to upgrade to one of next years devices at a reduced rate.

The upgrade program will give qualifying costumers the chance to bag a Galaxy Note 8 or Galaxy S8 when they pay off half the cost of their Galaxy S7 or S7 edge so they will only pay 12 payments instead of 24 payments.

Sadly, the said program is not available to those who purchased their Galaxy Note 7 outright and then swapped it for another device and it wont be available to those who purchased their Note 7 through a carrier either.

There are also some expectations about the Galaxy Note 8 and S8. Some expectation and rumor said that when it launched, the S8 is supposed to eschew a flat version in favor of its curvy design a boost to RAM and two cameras at the back.

Some of the rumors regarding its specs is that it will have a 4k. Some also says that the S-Pen could be re-designed and has more function and capability.

It should also have features in terms of zooming capabilities as the company filed a patent for technology.

Regarding its release date, the Galaxy Note 8 and S8 are likely to be released on February 2017.
