Leak! Is this the Galaxy Note 8?

From April 7 to 8, around 550,000 units of the Galaxy S8 were pre-ordered beating the record that the Galaxy S7 set the previous year. The expected price of Samsung Galaxy S8 is somewhere between PKR 86,000 - 90,000. However, rumors are pointing towards a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset and 6GB of RAM.

The high sales could be attributed to the big gap between the Note 7 debacle. This will be in line with Samsung Mobile chief DJ Koh's statements saying that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be "better, safer, very innovative". While Samsung had no Galaxy Note 7 to help carry it through the first quarter, it did have a strong midrange presence in their Galaxy J series smartphones that sustained a growth during the first quarter. The new variant, however, is only available in South Korea today for preorders. So what did Samsung miss with the Galaxy S8?

After what the S.Korean tech giant had experienced during the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, the firm has not ready to give upon its faith in the Note brand.

The company said its Galaxy S8+ is clearly the more popular model among early buyers in the United States. Complicating matters more is the fact that this appears to be a retail-ready phone and not a prototype, when we're at least five months out from the launch of Galaxy Note 8. However, as per the Amazon listing the device is only up for pre-order. Both smartphones are expected to be launched between April 15 and April 20, though the company is yet to confirm the official launch.

Value Walk also reported that with Samsung having already confirmed that the Galaxy Note 8 will be released in the second half of 2017, probably with an early fall date likely. In this article we explore what could have been, had Samsung made a few different choices. It has a full metal unibody and a 2.5D Gorilla Glass making it a durable device. The new flagship devices also come with the company's dive into the artificial intelligence (AI) market via their new virtual assistant called Bixby.
