Samsung Galaxy Note 8 reportedly codenamed ‘Baikal’

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 reportedly codenamed 'Baikal'

Despite a few ramblings in the rumor mill suggesting Samsung could axe the Galaxy Note lineup completely following the Galaxy Note 7 debacle, Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy Note 8 would be launched in 2017. With even the Galaxy S8 not official yet, it would seem too early for Note 8 rumors to be coming out at this point, but that is exactly what is happening today with a leak that says Samsung has codenamed the Galaxy Note 8 ‘Baikal’.

Baikal is the deepest lake in the world and is located in Siberia. It’s unclear what the relation between the lake and the device is, but it could be chosen to portray that the Note 8 will be extremely high-end, which wouldn’t be surprising as it would have the burden of rekindling consumer trust in the Note series. The only thing expected from the Galaxy Note 8 is a 4K display and the S Pen, although many of its other specs should be shared with the Galaxy S8, including an edge display, Samsung’s Bixby virtual assistant, and an iris scanner (which was also present on the Galaxy Note 7).

Needless to say, everything should be taken with a pinch of salt, which is especially true for a device like the Galaxy Note 8 that is many months away at this point and is likely in very early stages of development.
