Since the recall of the Galaxy Note 7 happened, Samsung prepared a new and safer phone, the Galaxy Note 8. The company would probably release it in the fall, similar to the release date of the Note 7. But, according to reports, it will have a much later release date.
The late release of the Note 8 is due to the fact that Samsung Electronics wants to enhance product safety. The Note 7 had so many negative feedbacks last year, bordering on an exploding battery and more. There was an investigation done to delve deeper into what caused the fires on the device. The recall of the Note 7 also cost them a $5.3 million loss in profits.
