SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 8 RUMOURS AND RELEASE DATE
There are different rumours surfacing regarding the Samsung Galaxy Note-8 and it seems that we would very soon be seeing a new flagship device from Samsung.Following the Note 7 catastrophe, it seems that Samsung has learned a lot over time as in the release of S8 and S8 plus the battery issue seems to have been finally resolved as there have been no reported issues of battery explosions.
Samsung releases its two flagships models every year that is the Galaxy S series and the Galaxy note Series phones. Galaxy S series in the first Quarter while note series in the third Quarter of the year.
According to official reports, the ill-fated Note-7 explosions were mainly due to the poor insulation between the positive and negative plates which caused the separator of the battery to get damaged. The flow of positive and negative charged ions came in contact with each other and as a consequence, the temperature of the battery significantly increased resulting in cases of fire and explosions.
However, the S Series line-up that comprised of the S7 and S7 edge did not seem to be affected by it at all. The S7 and the s7 edge made record sales of 55 million units that were sold all around the world.
Samsung also released the s8 and s8 plus models in April this year to fill in the gap created by the note 7 Samsung opted for larger display sizes in both its S series models the S8 and S8+.
According to Samsung this bezel less screen on the s8 and the s8 plus the former being 5.8” having 570 pixels per inch while the latter being 6.2” has a PPI of 529. Samsung has decided to call this display as the infinity display.
