Samsung has been less successful than AAPL when it comes to keeping a lid on the details of its new flagship smartphone. Where Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 was released earlier this year and is already available for purchase in markets across the planet, the Galaxy J7 2017 has just started selling in some markets across the globe, with others still on the waiting list.

The Note 7 sparked a global crisis for Samsung when videos quickly emerged of the phone catching fire while charging late previous year.

At present, there's no official word on what the device will be but rumours indicate a Galaxy Note 8 will be launched.

As reported by Forbes, this coincides with reports of the device having a huge 6.3in display, which is an increase of 0.6in from the Galaxy Note 7.
