Samsung's redeeming device, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, is expected to be released before the end of 2017. Rumors continue to surface about the possible release date of the device and its specs and features.

After the problems experienced by the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, Samsung is expected to deliver a near-perfect device with the Galaxy Note 8 to recover from the failure of the previous release. Here is what we know so far about the next installment:

Possible release date

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is thought to arrive late in 2017 but reports do not yet indicate what specific month it will fall. There are also rumors that its release could be delayed for a year or two to give Samsung enough time to make a worthy offering for its customers.

Specs and features

When it releases next year, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will reportedly sport a foldable screen and will do away with the home button. Though it is not yet confirmed, many are already raising their eyebrows on the foldable design saying it could be a big risk for the company.

As for its camera, the next device from Samsung could have a dual-lens shooter on its rear just like the iPhone 7 Plus. It will also need a bigger battery to provide more hours to the user.

Unveiling and other highlights

Samsung fans can expect that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could be revealed as early as January or in March depending on the company's readiness. It is thought to come with improved functionality with the help of an all-new S Pen. The pointel tool redesign is expected to help users do more and perform better functions with their phablets.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could also start selling at $850. Do you think the next device in the Samsung Note series will be worth the wait?
