galaxy-s7-design_02Usually Samsung likes to play its card close to the chest when it comes to its smartphones, although we’re not sure why especially when you consider how frequent leaks are these days, almost always spoiling the surprise ahead of the official reveal. However with the Samsung Galaxy S8, the company has spilled some details.


In a report from The Wall Street Journal, it is revealed that Samsung wants to just move on from the Note 7 disaster and focus on its next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8. While we’re not sure what to expect, Samsung’s mobile-communications vice president Lee Jae-yong promised that we can look forward to a “slick design” and an “improved camera”.

Now this doesn’t really us much, but like we said Samsung typically plays their cards close to the chest so for the company to come out so publicly and announce their plans is rather unusual. Then again the whole issue with the Note 7 was rather unusual and unprecedented as far as the company’s history of smartphones is concerned.

In fact we don’t think any other smartphone OEM has experienced what Samsung has experienced, and we reckon anyone else would probably have a much harder time recovering from it. In the meantime to entice customers to stick around, Samsung is offering Note 7 users a 50% discount on the Galaxy S8 should they decide that they can continue to trust the brand.
