The Note 7 was something of a disaster for Samsung. The handset, launched to great acclaim, was soon discovered to have a major flaw - it could catch fire and explode. Eventually, Samsung was forced to cancel all sales of the device and take a huge $5bn hit.
However, while some early rumours said this marked the end of the line for Samsung's Galaxy Note range, the firm has itself confirmed that it will be returning in 2017 when it revealed that burned Note 7 users could bag themselves a half-price Galaxy Note 8.
We've rounded up everything we know about the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 so far and will update this article as soon as and when we hear more.
Samsung's traditionally launches a new Note flagship each year at the IFA tech show in Berlin, which suggests that the Galaxy Note 8 will make its debut in early-September 2017.
Given that its launch is almost a year away, there's no word as to how much the Galaxy Note 8 will cost. If anything like the now-defunct Note 7, expect it to cost around £700.
Samsung's Note family is best-known for its large displays, and it's likely that next year's release will continue this tradition. While no specs have yet leaked, it's likely that the Note 8 will sport a display around the 5.7in mark, while rumours surrounding the Galaxy S8's screen suggests it could offer a bump in resolution.
Support for Samsung's S Pen likely will be included, as will the firm's upcoming artificial intelligence (AI) assistant that's set to debut on the Galaxy S8. This, unlike Apple's Siri, will be able to respond to complex, layered questions.
Under the hood, the Galaxy Note 8 will likely pack the latest and greatest mobile processor, potentially Qualcomm's 10nm Snapdragon 835. We'd also expect at least 6GB RAM, and a beefy (hopefully non-exploding) battery.
We can also expect the handset to sport all of the usual sensors, including an iris scanner and fingerprint sensor. If rumours surrounding the Galaxy S8 are anything to go by, this sensor could come embedded in the handset's display.
The Galaxy S8 also likely will feature Google's Android 7.0 Nougat software, USB-C connectivity, support for wireless charging and IP68 certification.
