Report: Galaxy Note 8 to launch earlier than expected, slowing S8 sales to blame

The Galaxy S8 and S8+ have done well so far, but haven't surpassed their predecessors
The Galaxy S8 duo was a big critical success for Samsung, as the radical visual redesign was met with mostly positive reception from consumers (though some of you will undoubtedly disagree). The problem is, this doesn't seem to have translated to sales that well, according to a recent report straight from Korea. It seems that S8 sales have been slowing down faster than expected in the past month, only reaching 9.8 million units sold, while last year's S7 duo surpassed 12 million in the same time span.

Which is why the company has now apparently revised its release strategy for the upcoming Note 8, which is now set to be revealed in early September. This is in contrast with visit this link an earlier report, coming from none other than famed leakster Evan Blass, which claimed the Note 8's release was to come at the end of the month instead.

And the reasons why — besides the slow S8 sales, of course — are pretty obvious. You might recall that September is the month where a little product known as the iPhone gets released, and that visit this link this year's device is said to be quite the departure from previous entries in the series. Or in other words, Samsung's bottom line is directly threatened, which is why the company will try and push out its next phablet's release ahead of schedule.

udging by the recent past, though, this effort could ultimately prove to be futile, though: some of you might remember that this is precisely what LG did with its G6 when faced with its competitor, the Galaxy S8: it released its own phone earlier so as to get all the head start it could. But if we're judging by visit this link the drastic discounts we've been seeing recently, the G6 isn't really doing that well.

Still, Samsung might actually pull off this maneuver successfully, if the report's claim of the iPhone 8's global rollout happening all the way in November are actually true: this will give the Korean giant more than two months of being unchallenged (by Apple, at least) outside of the U.S.

Furthermore, the company is also reportedly looking into ways of pushing the release even further back to August, visit this link just as previous rumors have suggested. If successful, this would let it show off the new device at this year's IFA, which would give it better exposure to the public — something the device might need, seeing as how similar it's going to be to the existing Galaxy S8+.

I hope not. It was never an issue until Note 7 launch, which was the biggest disaster they ever had. They literally CANT fu*k this launch up.

My s7 edge doesnt charge anymore

I fried the usb port after takin my phone in the shower and then trying to charge it afterwards ..i got the moisture signal to remove it from the wall socket and let it dry but i ignored it ....thinking nothing of it at the moment ..my dumb a.ss didnt realize electricity and water dont mix albiet it being a water proof phone

Came back and the phone suddenly wouldnt turn on and it was hot as hell thought it was goin to explode so i put it in the freezer to cool it down ..i was worried as hell cus i paid 1k ....i came back to it when it was cooled , and it turned on again everything works except for the usb port

I went and got a fast charger to power it , however that thing only works if theres some juice left in the device so i gotta be careful


Im thinkin bout getting an s8+ soon but on a contract this time could get it for free if i trade in my current phone not sure if i should wait for the note..

Dont get me wrong the galaxy s7 edge is a beast of a phone and has survived a lot of risky activity in the hands of me i dont think any other phone would have

Im still on my OG Note 3 from Launch Oct 2013 (No refurb)

Holding out like a mofo.... almost jumped on the note 7 and glad I didn't, waited to hear more about it and it paid off.... still no major issues with my Note 3..... looking forward to the Note 8. I wish Samsung would worry more about making a unique and distinguished product that spoke for itself instead of worrying what the other guy is making.... If they fu*k up this Note... its over....They seem to be in a rush to get nowhere fast.....
