Has Samsung just revealed its next flagship smartphone?

14 July 2017

As you might have heard, over in Korea Samsung has launched the Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition. Right, the original Note 7 battery. The image reveals large Infinity display with no bezels on the sides, and extremely thin bezels on top and bottom.

It must be noted that Samsung skipped the SM-G94XX series owing to some superstitious beliefs surrounding the number 4, akin to what OnePlus did with the naming convention of OnePlus 5 smartphone after skipping OnePlus 4 moniker from the line-up.

Chinese Nobel Peace laureate Liu Xiaobo dies at 61
Although numerous Charter 08 signers were interrogated, only Liu was arrested and charged with trying to overthrow the government. Liu's peaceful activism and biting criticism of one-party rule meant he had spent nearly a quarter of his life behind bars.

The smartphone in the tweet has design elements similar to previous leaks of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The Note 8 is expected to be powered by Quallcomm's latest flagship processor, the Snapdragon 835 paired with 6GB of RAM. The €999 retail price should translate to a little over $900, given that the €799 Galaxy S8 and €899 S8+ initially sold unlocked for about $725 and $825, respectively. Jeff's past Android devices include an HTC EVO, a Samsung Note II, and an LG G3 along with a Samsung Galaxy Tablet 10.1. Seeing as it's from Samsung's official account, however, and that it hasn't been removed since it was posted, it suggests the Korean company may be purposefully stoking excitement with a teased image ahead of an official unveiling.

Samsung is expected to launch Galaxy Note 8 in October, though the speculations are that it is set to be released in early September to coincide with the launch of iPhone 8.

Bank of Canada makes sharp jump in interest rates
This was the first rate hike in Canada in the last 10 years but the BOC had signalled it very clearly more than a month back. That compared with its April forecast for growth of 2.6 per cent this year, 1.9 per cent next year and 1.8 per cent in 2019.

Breathing a second life, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition was given a teardown by iFixit.org and it revealed the only difference between the exploding Note 7 devices and the new Fan Edition is the battery pack. It would be interesting to see whether only one or all storage options of the device would cost above $1,000.

The Galaxy S8 is also more ergonomic because of its curved edges and elongated 18.5:9 aspect ratio, making it feel better to hold and can be used one-handed. Tech experts are also hopeful of the dual camera because all the companies are launching the new devices with dual camera set ups.
