Samsung is planning to bring out the incredible "#Galaxy Note 8" this year. Last year's "#Galaxy Note 7" was not very successful as the company was forced to do a massive recall of the handset after hundreds of them exploded or caught fire. The Note 7 was also banned by airlines and in other places.

After Samsung replaced the faulty batteries, it happened again and the company was forced to completely halt production. They took a huge hit, Apple overtook them in the smartphone market, and the costs of this massive scandal were upwards of $3 billion.

The Korean company was almost about to stop the range of Note gadgets.

However, they are determined to bring out their high-end model -- "#Samsung Galaxy Note 8." It is generally believed the device will be released before the year is over.

Burned Note 7 users could claim a Galaxy Note 8 at half price

According to The Inquirer, for all those who found their Note 7 in flames, Samsung is planning on providing them the upcoming model for only half the price. The company lost more than a little credibility when the Note 7 turned out to be a failure. Offering old clients a cheaper deal could be a great opportunity to bring back users.

Usually, the company launches a new Note device every year in Berlin at the IFA tech show. This year the leading trade show for consumer electronics will be held from September 1 to 6. There is some speculation that the upcoming device will hit the market during the event.
