Despite the disastrous outcome of the Galaxy Note 7, speculations claim that Samsung is still gearing up to release the Galaxy Note 8 soon.

New reports claim that the South Korean consumer electronics firm will include a lot of spectacular features for the successor of the controversial Galaxy Note 7 to encourage the consumers to give the upcoming device a chance.

One of the device's state-of-the-art features include the rumored 5.7-inch edge-to-edge flexible display that can transform into a 6.2-inch screen with just a push of a button.

The rumored feature was raised by the Dutch YouTuber MobySmartCat, a popular leak source for smartphone rumors.

MobySmartCat also claimed that the high-tech screen display could also offer a 4K screen resolution support as well as a virtual reality (VR)-compatibility feature. The YouTuber also claimed that the rumored Galaxy Note 8 will have a 30-megapixel (MP) primary camera, which would be a massive specifications bump compared with the 12 MP camera of the Galaxy Note 7.

Inside the hood, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is expected to come out with a Snapdragon 830 processor and Samsung's very own Exynos 8895 Anastasia. This will enable the device to have better performance and outstanding battery optimization.

On the other hand, Mobile & Apps reported that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will have an expandable storage up to 2 TB, since the Galaxy Note 7 can already support an expandable storage up to 256 GB.

Those who are looking forward to have the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could also expect to see a USB Type-C port, IP68 Water Resistance protection, as well as the Galaxy Note's signature S-Pen.

While reports claim that Samsung is planning to release the rumored device sometime in 2017, there are reports claiming that the release date of the Galaxy Note 8 will not be revealed anytime soon. The tech firm could be taking their time to perfect the device to avoid the exploding battery controversy that involved the Galaxy Note 7 in 2016.
