Galaxy Note 8 codename leaked, refurbished Galaxy Note 7 reportedly in the works

Galaxy Note 8 codename leaked, refurbished Galaxy Note 7 reportedly in the works

It was recently rumored that Samsung has codenamed the Galaxy Note 8 “Baikal”, but a report from Samsung fan site SamMobile is now saying that the device has been codenamed “Great.” It’s a rather odd and straightforward codename for a smartphone, but it makes some sense as Samsung is expected to pay special attention to the Galaxy Note 8 following the Galaxy Note 7 debacle.

The Note 7 was codenamed Grace during development, but managed to bring notable disgrace to the company’s flagship phablet lineup, which might be another reason Samsung has gone with a simple coedename this time around. SamMobile also says that the model number for the Note 8 will be SM-N950, with Samsung to skip SM-N940 as the number 4 is considered unlucky in the company’s home country. The Korean giant is doing a similar thing with the Galaxy S8, which is set to carry model number SM-G950 following the Galaxy S7, which was SM-G930.

According to the same report, Samsung is also working on a refurbished Galaxy Note 7 for sale in South Korea, with the refurbished unit codenamed Grace R and carrying model number SM-N935. There have been numerous rumors that Samsung would be relaunching the Galaxy Note 7 in refurbished form, and this is the first time we are getting information on the same from a credible source. Whether such a device actually comes to market remains to be seen, as Samsung hasn’t said anything about bringing its discontinued flagship back to life.
