According to a report recently published by Venture Beat, it appears that the world’s biggest seller of smartphone devices is planning to launch its newest phablet offering -- the Galaxy Note 8 -- in September later this year, and with a pricing that breaches the $900 mark. Based on past Galaxy Note releases, the devices under this phablet lineup have always been a bit pricey, at least compared to other Galaxy devices.
First off is Samsung and its upcoming Galaxy Note 8 phablet. According to a report recently published by Reuters, the South Korean phone make is said to be looking forward to formally introducing its latest phablet offering some time in late August of this year.
According to a report recently published by The Korea Herald, Samsung might be launching its upcoming Galaxy Note 8 phablet some time in August later this year. In previous years, the South Korean phone maker had often released new Galaxy Note devices just in time for the Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA) Show held annually in the city of Berlin in Germany usually in late August.
As hinted back in October of last year, Samsung is indeed looking to continue the Galaxy Note brand this year. As a matter of fact, D.J Koh, the company’s mobile chief has recently confirmed to CNET that a Galaxy Note 8 is coming store shelves in 2017.
As promised, Samsung has officially revealed the real causes of the overheating problems of its Galaxy Note 7 phablet. According to the South Korean phone maker, there were two separate issues directly attributable to the device’s battery, which led to the handset overheating and even catching fire.
Samsung may have been hoping that with the new year, it could be given a fresh start regarding its Galaxy Note lineup of phablets. But lest it forget, its Galaxy Note 7 troubles are not exactly over yet. And part of the blame is a certain number of mobile users who stubbornly still choose to hold on to their Galaxy Note 7 units.
According to a report published by Reuters, Samsung will be releasing the full results of its investigation into what caused its Galaxy Note 7 device to catch fire or even explode this coming January 23rd. The Reuters news report also stated that the phablet’s overheating problems are likely tied to battery issues, and not to any hardware or software aspect.
The biggest wireless carrier in America is going to brick its Galaxy Note 7 devices after all, but only after the busy holiday season. About a week ago, Samsung had announced that it was planning to roll out a particular software update that will make all remaining units of its embattled phablet essentially unusable.
The world’s biggest seller of smartphone devices is planning to roll out a new software update that should brick every Galaxy Note 7 phablet that has not yet been returned. Specifically, Samsung’s software update will prevent all remaining units out there from charging, and will also take away their ability to function as smartphones.
