0 Will Samsung go Far Ahead of Apple with New Galaxy Note 8?

Since the fire issue has gone viral and yet more pieces reported to have burned, Samsung have discontinued their production for Galaxy Note 7. There is a news that Samsung is building their brand trust with giving statement for replacement of Note 7 with new device. Samsung will launch New Galaxy Note 8 smartphone at MMC in 26 February 2017, till the time you can read what Samsung originally offered with Galaxy Note 7.

Samsung has been heavily criticized for stealing Apple's ideas all the time, but how to create a different device which has an exact similar function of all the devices? The answer is to stay competing with features and that's Samsung did over few years. Note 7 is the finest design Samsung have ever produced.

Samsung's lead designer Hong Yeo recently interviewed by Tech Insider with new Galaxy Note 7. S6 had his first design came into the market and earned a lot of applauds. 

Samsung unveiled Galaxy Note 7 in New York in a special event. It was a 5.7 Inch Phablet with curved edge display. It had a fantastic dual-curved screen with 1440x2560p, ~518 PPI density which looks even more stunning. Note 7 had an amazing combination of metal and glass. Its symmetrical display curves were eye catching. With such a massive display and thin bezel, Note 7 represented a design masterpiece. Wait, you will see similar features in Galaxy Note 8 by Feb. 2017.

The company also Confirmed a variant of Galaxy Note 7 with 6GB RAM & 128GB Storage as China Exclusive. It's a previously leaked and rumored Galaxy Note 7 variant with 128GB of onboard storage and 6GB RAM will be released only in china. 

The phone was actually smaller than some of the competitor's devices including iPhone 6S plus, Nexus 6P and Note 5. Taking about its S-pen, it was really an advance tool available for artists and designers. It was pretty impressive with a capability to magnify parts of an image so that one can focus more on the brief details. Using s-pen one can switch between multiple apps, translate text using google's translate service. 

Galaxy Note 7 recently supplied with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow onboard. The company also confirmed Android 7.0 Nougat Update schedule within 2-3 months.

Samsung's next big thing will be Samsung Galaxy S8 which will hit the market in early 2017. Galaxy X is also a new device which Samsung will bring in the market with completely flexible displays. One will actually fold and flex these devices. But that's a future part!

Competition with Apple  (I think Apple is best now)

Note 7 would have competed with Apple iPhone 6 and 7 in terms of display size and resolution. There is a large difference in terms of cost. Even if Apple brings something like 5.5 Inch retina display with their upcoming 7 series, it won't match with what Samsung is offering right now. Again, a cost of the devices will remain much higher and unmatched. Its a real bad news for Samsung to discontinue such a marvelous product, Still bad things keep happening in digital world and lets hope for Galaxy Note 8 with yet another exciting features.
