Samsung Just Confirmed That It Will Launch The Galaxy Note 8 Soon

Samsung’s mobile chief DJ Koh had surprised everyone in January this year by announcing that Samsung will be launching a sequel to the Note series even after the Note 7 fiasco last year. Now as per the company’s first quarter annual report it seems as if the Note 8 will be launched in the later half of the year 2017.

A Concept Render From YouTube

Samsung announced its quarterly results for the quarter ended March 31 on Thursday and in the announcement it also said that it will be launching a new flagship smartphone in the later half of 2017. This time fits perfectly in the launch time of Note series smartphones, for example, Galaxy Note 5 was launched in August 2015 and Galaxy Note 7 was launched in August last year.

This announcement shows that Samsung has stuck with the regular time of the release of the smartphone instead of rushing it despite the fact that its predecessor is absent from the market. This should be good news for the customers as last year by pushing the release of Note 7 in order to compete with Apple, Samsung had ended up in the Note 7 trouble.

It is generally a trend that Samsung announces its models before Apple but releases them later on. Seeing as being in a rush with Note 7 had caused the whole trouble it was wise for Samsung to follow the same trend with Note 8.

It was earlier speculated that the Note series might be killed off due to the bad name that had been associated with it but after DJ Koh’s statement, it seems as if the South Korean giant hasn’t given up at all.

This is How Much Galaxy S8 Costs Samsung To Make

Reviews of the recently released Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus have mostly been positive. It seems as the tech giant did everything it could to keep their flagship on top and the best among its competitors. According to the latest report by analytics and solutions company IHS Markit, Galaxy S8 comes with a bill of materials (BOM) cost that is much higher than it was for previous versions of the company’s smartphones.

As per the report, the 64 GB storage variant on Samsung Galaxy S8 has a BOM – bill of materials – cost of $301.60 ( Rs. 19,400). Additionally, adding $5.90 (roughly Rs. 380) in basic manufacturing costs the final cost of manufacturing device reaches $307.50 (roughly Rs. 19,800). The Galaxy S8 is selling in the US at $750 and in India its price Rs. 57,900.

“The preliminary estimated total at this point is $43.34 (roughly Rs. 2,800) higher than that of the Galaxy S7 previously performed by IHS Markit, and is $36.29 (roughly Rs. 2,300) higher than the total build cost of the Galaxy S7 Edge, considered a better comparison to the Galaxy S8,” IHS Markit said in its release. Therefore according to the report, the manufacturing cost of Galaxy S8 is 20 percent more than its predecessor. A teardown analysis of Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus has not been performed yet but it will likely be more than that of Samsung Galaxy S8.

Andrew Rassweiler, senior director of cost benchmarking services for IHS Markit, said that the increase in BOM of Samsung Galaxy S8 is an indication of the ongoing trend where smartphone manufacturers such as Apple and Samsung put in the best of the hardware available on their products to compete with all the other products in the market.

“While there are new non-hardware features in the Galaxy S8, such as a virtual assistant called Bixby, from a teardown perspective the hardware in the Galaxy S8 and that of the forthcoming new iPhone is expected to be very similar,” Rassweiler added.
