Samsung recently announced its latest entry in the line of flagships in its Unpacked event in New York last week. Now if reports are to be believed, Samsung has already started work on the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy Note 8.

Samsung has already begun developing software for the upcoming Galaxy Note 8, while software build numbers are the following N950FXXU0AQC6/ N950FOXM0AQC6/ N950FXXU0AQC6. The Galaxy Note 8 is codenamed “Great” and it is expected to feature a larger screen, of about 6.4-inches, and possibly a dual-curved display with 4k resolution.

 

Details about the successor to last year’s Galaxy Note 7 are quite scarce, but some reports state that the smartphone will have 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The phone will most likely sport an iris scanner, a tool that represented one of the main selling points for the Note 7. Also, this year’s model should run the latest Snapdragon 835 platform, while the S Pen could see some improvements.

The report also states that Samsung also assigned build numbers for the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 models, respectively N935LKLU2AQD2/ N935LLUC2AQD2/ N935LKLU2AQD2. The refurbished variant of last year’s Galaxy Note 7 will carry the model number SM-N935 and it will arrive to a number of markets, but not the US.

 

Samsung has already confirmed its intention to bring a refurbished variant, and has revealed that pricing and availability details will be announced at a later date. Semiconductors and camera modules from the units that won’t be refurbished will be detached for reuse. Refurbished Galaxy Note 7 units will most likely see their batteries swapped for safer units, and undergo rigorious quality assurance tests to make sure they do not pose any safety risks for consumers.

For now, the company is focusing on its Galaxy S8 flagship and even ramped up production for the larger Galaxy S8+ model, amid high demand.
