By now, everyone is probably aware of the disaster that has befallen the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, something tied up to the exploding battery linked to potential mass production fault. But the Samsung Galaxy S8 is unfazed.
The South Korean company is expected to pay dearly in the form of losses something that comes a big blow to the device which was supposed to end Samsung’s year with a big bang.
While Samsung continues to do damage control, there is no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be a phablet that people will be apprehensive to buy. So what is Samsung to do?
Time to ramp up the Samsung Galaxy S8?
With the misfortunes of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, the best folks can do right now is to perhaps to look ahead. It will take time for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to cover up lost ground so the company could do better start hyping the Samsung Galaxy S8.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is not expected to come until early 2017, seemingly an eternity of wait. It will be a tough couple of months for Samsung though the problem does not cover all regions. Some users over in the Philippines have tried to see (purposely) if the Galaxy Note 7 version would indeed explode but so far no glaring reports have come out.
Just the same, it doesn’t erase the fact that people will have that exploding battery problem in mind. But looking forward, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be pressured to come up with something big.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 rumors so far
Among the rumored specs roaming around tied up to the Samsung Galaxy S8 include a 5.2-inch display (4096×2160 pixels), a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked at 3.2 GHz, 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD), a 30 MP main camera, 9 MP front-facing camera and a non-removable 4,200 mAh battery. There are even rumors claiming it may be coming out with a special kind of jack.
The specs alone are impressive even if they are unofficial. But the non-removable battery is (unsurprisingly) of concern. Hopefully, the memoir of the exploding battery on the Galaxy Note 7 is not carried on, something that Samsung will have to work on from here until early 2017.
