Said tablet is most likely the Galaxy Tab S3 that just recently made its way through the FCC.

Now that Samsung has put an end to the embarrassing Galaxy Note 7 chapter of its life behind it, it can now proceed full steam ahead with the Galaxy S8.

As chip sales save 2016, Samsung looks to Note 8 for 2017 profit

Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 may have tested the old "any publicity is good publicity" adage, but bumper chip demand has paved the way for a surprisingly successful 2017, the company predicts. Sales of memory chips helped assuage the financial hit from recalling millions of Note 7 handsets over fears they could explode, the South Korean firm said today, with record high prices in the final quarter of 2016. Indeed, Samsung's Q4 operating profit surged by 50-percent.

LG G6 debuting late February, without Snapdragon 835

Samsung and Qualcomm now have something in common. Both have had literally hot flagship, the Snapdragon 810 for Qualcomm and the Galaxy Note 7 for Samsung. Unsurprisingly, the two have forged a partnership that, also unsurprisingly, will be to the exclusion of other players in the field.
