Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will reportedly launch after Galaxy X

It is no longer an ‘off the record’ thing that the South Korean manufacturer Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note 8 later this year, thanks to the company’s mobile chief DJ Koh. Speaking with CNET earlier this year, he confirmed Samsung’s plans to polish up the company’s Note lineup and bring out the whole new Note 8, successor to last year’s Note 7.


The best part, it may not be too far from reality as multiple reports are suggesting Samsung’s plans to introduce the Galaxy Note 8 sometime in Q4 2017. But hey! There may also be an element of surprise if the company decides to unveil its first with foldable screen smartphone — Galaxy X — sometime in Q3 2017. Yes, there is a possibility.

According to a Chinese leakster, who goes by the Twitter handle @mmddj_china, Samsung will take wraps off the Galaxy X smartphone before the Note 8 phablet. The leakster, however, didn’t reveal anything else, leaving us all guessing about Samsung’s plans. A couple of months ago, two Samsung X-series phones bearing the model names SM-X9000 (Galaxy X1) and SM-X9050 (Galaxy X1+) surfaced online.

In other news, Samsung just refreshed its flagship lineup with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Introduced in Midnight Black, Arctic Silver, Orchid Gray, Maple Gold, and Coral Blue, both the phones are already listed for preorders in the U.S. The actual sale, however, will take place starting April 21st. In case you are wondering, I have covered all the important announcements from March 29th Samsung Unpacked event held in New York.
