The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 may have bombed — quite literally — but Samsung will continue on by releasing the followup Galaxy Note 8 in the second half of 2017. The device is slated to come with a 4K display, Bixby personal assistant, S Pen and enhanced VR compatibility.

The higher resolution UHD (ultra-high definition) 4K Super AMOLED display will allow for an improved VR experience, while the company's new Bixby personal assistant arrives courtesy of Viv Labs, whose owners are responsible for creating Siri for iOS. Bixby, however, is rumored to be far more advanced than Siri.

Lastly, the new Galaxy Note 8 will come equipped with an enhanced S Pen functionality and updated iris scanner, which debuted on the Note 7.
