CNBC reached out to Samsung for comment but a spokesperson was not immediately available. Lenovo showed off a foldable tablet earlier this year at Lenovo Tech World, leaker EVleaks has revealed that ZTE has a similar device in the works, and now Samsung has confirmed that it has plans to actually release one in 2018 - if things go according to plan. The graphics are handled by the Mali-G71 MP20 GPU. The smartphone is powered by an Octave core 10nm processor clocked at up to 2.3Ghz.
Samsung has gone in for a 12 MP + 12 MP dual rear camera setup. The telephoto lens is backed with f/2.4, 2x optical zoom up to 10x digital zoom.
This is the first Samsung phone to feature a 12 MP dual-camera setup. Koh also said Samsung hopes to showcase a foldable handset next year but that technological hurdles must be overcome before a decision can be made.
Originally unveiled last month in New York, Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 features a giant 6.3-inch Infinity display with bare minimum bezels. The front camera has an 8MP sensor with an f/1.7 aperture and also records 4K UHD videos at 30 FPS.
Needless to say, Samsung has a lot riding on the Galaxy Note 8, especially after the battery debacle that seemingly damages the Note series reputation. Connectivity options include NFC and MST for Samsung Pay, a USB Type-C for file transfers, charging and other purposes.
Interestingly, while Samsung, Nokia and Google are launching a phone each, Apple is expected to launch three phones together iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, the model which Apple is releasing to commemorate ten years since Apple launched the first iPhone.
In India, Samsung led the smartphone segment with 24 per cent share in April-June 2017 quarter. A new addition to the Note8 is the ability to send.gif messages drawn using the S Pen, which will playback to the recipient in the way you draw them, much like those seen on iMessage. The device now lets users to take up to 100 pages of notes on the off screen.
There is a good chance that Bixby will be the name of the new voice-controlled speakers.
Samsung has also improved the bundled stylus, known as S Pen. For selfies, it has an 8-megapixel front-facing camera with f/1.7 aperture.
