#GalaxyNote8 #SmartphoneGalaxy Note 8 specs, release, features, rumors : Any suggestion that Samsung may be about to ditch the Galaxy Note branding appears to be dead in the water, with information circulating suggesting that the Korean corporation is already working on the next generation Galaxy Note 8.

Model leak

Indeed, reliable tech tipster Evan Blass has suggested that this smartphone is already very much under development, and has even leaked the model number SM-N950 to prove this. The Note 7 was model SM-N930, so this would certainly seem to make sense, and it seems the Samsung hasn’t been too discouraged by the recent disastrous explosion issue.

It is interesting to note that the number four is considered unlucky in Korea, explaining the fact that Samsung has chosen to skip the SM-N940 moniker. This doesn’t come as a huge surprise, as reports from Samsung’s native Korea have already suggested that the Galaxy Note 8 was to be included in an upgrade program.

Blass also revealed the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Edge model numbers, which are said to be SM-G950 and SM-G955, up from SM-G930 and SM-G935 on the Galaxy S7 range. So it seems that Samsung is making preparations for an exciting device portfolio in 2017.

There is no doubt that the recall of the Galaxy Note 7 was a catastrophic blow for Samsung, but it seems that the company is already recovering. The Samsung share price actually hasn’t been affected too disastrously, and although the image of Samsung has taken something of a kicking, it is generally thought by analysts that the reputation of the company is durable enough to overcome any residual damage.
