    What's next after the Note 7? Since there is a Galaxy Note 8 out already where does Samsung go next with the Phablet line?

    Ahh, you mean with the NAME of the phone. Well, there is technically a Galaxy Note 8.0 out there, so I bet they could still name it the Note 8. I bet no one remembers the Note 8.0 anyway :)

    Samsung has already filed patent applications for a flexible, folding display device. With the Galaxy S8 slated to sport a 4K UHD screen, I can imagine that the Galaxy Note 8 will be something to behold.

    I remember it. Most underrated tablet. And many don't remember that the international version actually had cellular radios in it. I handed that tablet down to my mother and it still works like a champ for her.

    You think they'll skip 8 too, and go straight to the Galaxy Note 9? :thinking:

    I was hoping that, foldable display would be ready to go for the Note 8 and they would end up offering a regular version and the foldable version would be the Note 8+ or Pro, as a true successor to the original Note 8 tablet w/phone radios. But, considering the recent interview where a Samsung exec said that it might take them a while to have a product ready for production, I'm not sure what they will do. Crossing my fingers that my thoughts will be reality, when it comes time to put together the Note 8,if it isn't already in the works.

    Just think: 20 years from now we'll all have sockets in the backs of our heads and just plug a Samsung chip in. If we want to change, we'll stick an HTC or Nexus chip in. And OTAs will happen in our sleep :p

    LOL...They'll have the tech, chief, but it'll cost too much for the average consumers to pay for that. The average consumer will just have to settle for "holograph" devices, that they actually still have to carry with them.

    Old as I am now I doubt I will see the new phones of 2036. Now that is just depressing!

    Aging is inevitable, Koki... but "old" is a state of mind. NEVER GROW OLD! ;) :)

    I am so sick of hearing about bendable and foldable displays it makes me sick. They have been talking about them for 6-8 years it feels like! That most recent story where the executive says they won't be ready made me eyeroll so hard I almost detached my retina. :rolleyes:
    I still haven't even seen a compelling use for it as my everyday in pocket mobile phone device, I don't think.

    But I'm the guy skipping the Note 7 in the end since they made it Edge only - does nothing for me

    LOL...Pyro, you're actually 100% right that they've been touting the YOUM displays for 6-8 years already. Every single CES, there's a youtube video of the Samsung YOUM displays being shown, but nothing has ever really come out of it. Closest has been the edge displays. On the contrary though, for me, I do see a use for a foldable phone to replace me having my tablet and my phone on the go. I can actually turn my tablet into dedicated car use, which I really like the concept of.

    "Their product is quite reliable and affordable."

    They lost me at "affordable" :p

    Although it's a little early to create a Note 8 Forum, it's interesting to know that someone out there is already tracking the device... even though it's barely on the drawing board. Thanks for sharing :)
     

Samsung Galaxy Note 7

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was launched in 2016, before subsequently being removed from production over battery issues.
