Samsung Confirms Flagship’s Release In Second Half Of 2017
The company has rarely mentioned the Note 8, and it is just now that we are given a launch window for the next phablet. Samsung said in a statement (via BGR).
“As for the year ahead, Samsung anticipates market demand in smartphones to slightly increase with solid replacement demand growth in the mid- to high-end segment.
“However, competition is expected to intensify with newly launched smartphones in the market. The company will aim to improve performance YoY by maximizing sales of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ and successfully launching a new flagship smartphone in the second half. In addition, the company will maintain profitability in the mid- to low-end segment.”
