After a year of explosions and fiascos, Samsung is ready to redeem itself again, with the Galaxy Note 8 already confirmed for next year. With the high pressure to deliver a top-notch, feature-packed, and safe device, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 would surely be a beast of a phablet.

All exploding battery issues aside, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was undeniably one of the best smartphones that has ever graced the market. With this, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 would definitely follow suit, but with a much safer implementation.

While no official specs have been released, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is predicted to flaunt the same 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with curved edges. The main difference here is the rumored resolution upgrade from Quad HD to 4K resolution.

The new 10nm Snapdragon 835 chipset from Qualcomm would power the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, coupled with 6GB of RAM, and at least 64GB of internal storage. A big, non-explosive battery would also give the device a lot of juice, powering through an entire game easily.

A new digital assistant similar to Siri and Google Assistant would also be featured, but is claimed to be better. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 would also run on the new Android 7.1 Nougat update. A much-improved S-Pen would also be integrated on the phablet, integrating a new layer of device interface.

The usual high-end specs could be expected from the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The rear camera would be drastically improved, along with the selfie snapper. The iris and fingerprint scanners would also be updated for faster unlocking of the device. The IP68 certification for water resistance and dust proofing would also return. Support for Gear VR and Google Daydream View would also be featured in the Galaxy Note 8.

Much like the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, the Galaxy Note 8 would be launched in the IFA tech show in Berlin, which would occur in September 2017. The predicted price tag of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 would be around $700, similar to its predecessor.
