Samsung plans to hold a special event in the second half of next August in New York City, USA, to announce the next generation of the Galaxy Note phone series, Reuters reported Tuesday.

Reuters quoted the person, who said he was not authorized to speak publicly on the subject and declined to be identified, that the Galaxy Note 8 will offer a curved screen of larger size compared to the Galaxy S 8 Plus, which offers a screen measuring 6.2 inches, and will come with a dual background camera .

Samsung has previously confirmed that it will continue to launch the Galaxy Note series despite the heavy losses incurred by the Galaxy Note 7, which had to pull it out of the markets and stop production after about two months from the launch in October last because of a problem in In some cases batteries have caused the device to burn.

The crash, one of the biggest product safety failures in technology history, cost South Korea’s consumer electronics giant operating profit of 6.1 trillion won ($ 5.4 billion) and undermined its credibility.

In January, Samsung unveiled its initial findings on the failure of the Galaxy Note 7, citing battery problems from two suppliers that caused the device to burn, which was confirmed by two other independent investigations. The company has taken several steps, including a new set of battery safety tests to avoid repeat accidents, which analysts said would help win consumer confidence.

The strong initial response to the new Galaxy S8 phones, launched in April, is believed to be recovering quickly, with some analysts expecting the device to bring record sales to Samsung in the second quarter of this year. So far, there have been no significant problems with the Galaxy S8.

Counterpoint Research estimates that Samsung regained its position as the world’s best smartphone maker in the first quarter after losing to rival Apple in the fourth quarter of last year. Apple is widely expected to unveil next-generation iPhones in September
