Samsung indirectly confirms that there will be a Galaxy Note 8
Those who've purchased the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in South Korea and will opt to replace their phone with a Samsung Galaxy S7 or a Galaxy S7 edge will be given the chance to upgrade to the Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy Note 8 next year. The upgrade will not be offered for free. Instead, customers will have to pay for half of the price of the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge (depending on which phone they've replaced their Note 7 for) to qualify for the upgrade. Essentially, the upgrade will be offered through a discounted variant of Samsung's Galaxy Upgrade Program.
One interesting detail that Samsung had indirectly confirmed is that there will be a Galaxy Note 8. After Samsung issued the second (and final) recall of the Galaxy Note 7, some rumors claimed that the South Korean tech giant might kill off its Note series. As it turns out, this was nothing but speculation.
At the moment, it is unknown if Samsung plans to extend the availability of the upgrade scheme to any other countries besides its home market.
