As everyone knows by now, the previous handset in the Galaxy Note series, Note7, suffered from the ignominy of multiple worldwide recalls and more than $5 billion in damages, as it was found to be exploding involuntarily especially during charging.

The majority of Samsung's first-quarter earnings was generated in the chip-making unit, which posted 6.31 trillion won of operating profit on revenue of 15.66 trillion won. As for us, from the reports that we have been seeing and hearing lately, it looks like Samsung could go ahead with the Note series.

In case you were wondering whether Samsung will launch a new Galaxy Note model this year, you can rest assured that it's happening. Samsung is anyways used to launching two flagship Galaxy S phones in the first half followed by a flagship Galaxy Note in the second half and chances are the trend might just continue this year as well. Fortunately, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Red Tint issue was not a hardware problem like last years' Samsung Galaxy Note 7 had.

"We are encouraged that Samsung Electronics has agreed to take the bold step of optimising its balance sheet. even as the company has faced obstacles", Elliot said in a statement.

Other issues the company promised updates for are a Wi-Fi issue, and a Device Quality Agent issue.

As per the report, the company is now working on the re-branding of the refurbished device which could go on sale as the Galaxy Note 7 R. Like all Note devices, this will come with a stylus as well.

Now, a few leaks and rumors suggest that this flagship will launch in late September 2017 and release at the end of October. So, it will be a ideal companion for your Galaxy Gear VR set.

The Galaxy S8 is on sale in Carphone Warehouse, EE, Vodafone, O2 and Three stores from today. There are also rumors that the foldable Galaxy X may be unveiled this year.

The second coming of the big-screen smartphone would feature a smaller, less powerful battery - reduced from 3500mAh to 3200mAh - and would launch at a 30 per cent discount, pricing the phone at $825.
