Samsung says it’ll launch a new flagship smartphone in the second half of 2017

Samsung announced its financial results for the first quarter of 2017 on Thursday, and aside from confirming that the Galaxy Note 7’s unfortunate demise took a toll on the revenue of its smartphone business, the firm also revealed that it’s planning to launch a new flagship in the second half of 2017.

That’s hardly big news, right? Samsung normally launches a new Galaxy Note in August, but due to the effect the Galaxy Note 7 had on its reputation, many people believed it would delay its successor — dubbed the Galaxy Note 8 — so it can create something truly spectacular to win back former customers.

What about specs?

Recent rumors point towards the Galaxy Note 8 sporting a 6.4-inch edge-to-edge Infinity Display, an in-house Exynos series (8895) processor, 6GB of RAM, iris recognition and a dual camera module similar to the one on board the iPhone 7 Plus, but on par in terms of quality with the upcoming iPhone 8.
