Galaxy Note 8 Model Number and Codename Revealed

7 March, 2017 Samsung

Although previous rumors have been indicating that the Note 8 would have the codename "Baikal," a latest rumor apparently negates that name in favour of "Great." The news comes via the courtesy of SamMobile, although they have not revealed their sources. We must admit, codename "Great" sounds a bit too cheesy! Nevertheless, that's exactly what the latest rumor is predicting at this moment. Additionally, the model number of the upcoming "Great" Note was also confirmed to be SM-N950F, which is in consistence with what Evan Blass had leaked back in November 2016.

In other news, SamMobile also reports that against all odds, Samsung will indeed be re-launching the Galaxy Note 7 in South Korea, with a safe battery. The commercial name for the refurbished Note 7 will be "Grace R," where R stands for refurbished. The devices will most likely not make their way outside the home country and we are not sure if that's good news or bad news! Grace R will allegedly feature the model number SM-N935 and make use of some of the hardware left over from the defunct Note 7. Will you be buying a refurbished Note 7 if it was available near you?
