The year 2017 is gearing up to be the most anticipated event in smartphone-manufacturing as the two tech behemoths in the industry, Samsung Electronics and Apple Inc., are about to clash in an unprecedented level with their forthcoming offerings — Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

And as the battle of the phablets is about to collide next year, these two frontliners are coming from interestingly different motivations. As such, Apple is set to celebrate its 10th-year anniversary in producing the iconic smartphone roster and chances are, its upcoming entry is going to break some ground. On the other hand, the South Korean company is decidedly en route to prove to the world again why it has always been helming the competition with its flagship roster, whose latest Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has grappled probably the most challenging issue for the company. Quite simply, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is going to be the firm's one-way ticket to redeeming the otherwise tarnished line-up.

But Samsung might not fret no more as recent speculations have gone surfacing, indicating that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is very well on its way not only to lure back some of its lost consumers but also, wow and rival its closest competition, iPhone 8 Plus.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8, according to ValueWalk, is slated to be equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 830, just more than enough to power up the phablet's numerous needs. It will be supported by an equally massive 6GB of random access memory (RAM) and 128GB of native storage. Further, the next device is speculated to come with Samsung's very first AI assistant along with a dedicated button. The rumored artificial intelligence, akin to Apple's Siri, is tipped to be named as "Bixby."

Samsung Galaxy Note 8's "Bixby" should be able to conduct ultra-fast searches. On the other hand, the digital assistant is likewise pegged to work with third-party applications. The highly-anticipated device is likewise going to be armed with a much-improved S-Pen stylus which was already introduced in the previous "Note" iterations. Accordingly, the stylus might be coming with an integrated speaker.

 Meanwhile, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is also tipped to come with an edge-to-edge display, akin to its problematic predecessor. In addition, a talk about 4K resolution has been included among its specifications.
