The Galaxy Note 8: What to expect

2 January, 2017 Samsung


Although there have been some speculations that Samsung won't be continuing its Note line-up this year around, we did hear from the Korean electronics giant a while back that the Note 8 is indeed coming. Provided that Samsung hasn't changed its decision since then, here are a few features that we can expect to see on the next Galaxy Note smartphone.


The dual-curved display


At this point, it is quite likely that all Samsung flagship smartphones will feature the dual-curved Edge displays, which debuted with the Galaxy S6 Edge back in 2015. Of course, the one on the Note 8 will come with more functionality to support the stylus.


Iris scanner for security


Another one of the features that debuted with the Note 7, the iris scanner is sure to make its way onto the next Note. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised to see it on the Galaxy S8 either.


Water-resistance


There is no doubt that the Note 8 is going to be water-resistant with at least an IP68 certification, if not with something even more advanced. Given that Samsung had figured out how to make the Note 7 water-resistant in spite of accommodating a vulnerable spot for nestling the S-Pen, there is no reason to think that they won't implement an improved version of the same on their next Note smartphone.


Keep in mind that the name "Note 8" may not be the actual name of the product this year as Samsung could opt for something else to steer clear of the bad reputation that the Note 7 has tainted them with. Also, there's already an old Samsung tablet with the same name present in the market.
