Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Nexus 6

Kari ReynoldsJan 05, 2017

The Consumer Safety Commission announced today a safety recall on Samsung's new Galaxy Note 7 smartphone after users reported that some of the devices caught fire when charging.

It can be remembered that a patent filling by Samsung past year showed that a smartphone was being developed by the company and it will arrive sporting fully foldable body.

According to sources, for the United States, the Galaxy S8 is rumored to be powered by a 10nm octa-core Snapdragon 835 chipset from Qualcomm and for the other regions, the device will be run by an equally efficient Samsung Exynos 8 Octa processor.

A new report from Business Korea this week has said that we'll be told what happened by the end of the month. If the latest report from China is to be believed, Samsung will adopt a similar approach this spring by launching the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Edge. Though the device is supposed to skip 7.0 and head straight to 7.1.1, by now Samsung should be close to wrapping up Nougat work for the Galaxy S6.

Galaxy A5 & A7 will be featuring a 1080p display with 5.2inch and 5.7inch screen size respectively whereas the lower range A3 model will get a 720p display with 4.7-inch screen size. It will reportedly be made compatible with the new Gear VR wearable.

The Note 8 is also expected to come with Samsung's next-generation AI assistant, an improved S Pen stylus, and better iris recognition. It also has a 4200mAh battery and 6GB of RAM.

However, Forbes do say that since VR is still in its infancy stages that you could debate whether a 4K display is really needed before this technology grows in its maturity. They were in touch with an "official from a Samsung Electronics' partner company" and believe they have some information about Samsung's upcoming high-end smartphones.

The flagship smartphone was discontinued in October 2016, approximately one month after its launch. This early, the rumor is that it was an electronic hardware design problem and not just a battery issue. The fire investigation of the Galaxy Note 8 was conducted by the US -based safety organization UL. This indicates that Samsung has not lost confidence in its products and it's expecting high demand for the Galaxy S8 flagship despite the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco.
