After the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, Samsung was rumored to discontinue its Galaxy Note series. But that isn t likely to happen, and the company is set to launch the Galaxy Note 8 this year. Samsung is reportedly set to make a big ticket announcement at IFA 2017, and this device is widely expected to be the Galaxy Note 8. IFA 2017 will be held in Berlin between September 1 and September 6.

Speaking at a press conference, Jens Heithecker, IFA executive director was quoted as saying, My personal perspective is that IFA would be the better place (to unveil the new Note smartphone). The big advantage is that we have a lot of media and journalists from all around the world in Berlin. It is not possible to bring them all together in other cities wherever it is, in August. That’s our offer. Samsung will have the biggest presentation as well this year as far as we know, and we are very happy to have Korean industries such as Samsung, LG and other companies in our show.

In the past, Samsung stuck to its format of launching the flagship Galaxy S series devices in the first half of the year during MWC, whereas the Galaxy Note series flagships would come later in the year at IFA. This year however, Samsung skipped MWC, and instead launched the Galaxy S8 smartphones at its Unpacked event in late March.

The expectations from Galaxy Note 8 are high, especially since the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones have lived up to theirs. After the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, it will be interesting to see how Samsung s Galaxy Note series bounces back. While details are scarce, the Galaxy Note 8 will reportedly have a dual-camera setup on the back, and also come with an improved S Pen stylus. Other expected features include Infinity Display, iris scanner, and Bixby.
