After the unfortunate demise of the Galaxy Note 7, everyone is expecting that Samsung would get back on its feet with this year's flagship, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. However, someone pointed out that the phone has the fatal flaw that could damage the phone's reputation.

In a report by PC Advisor, the specs of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is promising to the fans and users of Samsung. Sporting with Qualcomm's bleeding-edge SoC, the Snapdragon 835, and at least 64GB of storage and 6GB of Ram. The smartphone is rumored to have a 6.2-inch or 6.4-inch Super AMOLED 4K display.

Not only that, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is rumored to have a bigger, better, and safer battery compared to its infamous predecessor. It would also have a new voice-activated assistant that would be named Bixby. It is expected to compete with Apple's Siri.

These could be the factors why people would bring back their faith on the large South Korean tech conglomerate. But in his opinion piece posted at The Inquisitr, Simon Alvarez has noted that one particular aspect of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could drive customers away.

What is it? Despite all of these specs, people would probably not buy the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 because of its high price.

The predecessor of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was already pricy to its customers and it had an unfortunate fate by literally blowing up. Rumors are suggesting that the phone would be even more expensive.

Expert Reviews has said reported that it would be pricier because of the pound's volatility. Other tech giants like OnePlus, Apple, Microsoft, and Dell are also expected to give a higher price on their flagships.

Alvarez has suggested that in order to attract customers, the South Korean tech conglomerate should not just follow the trend in hiking up the price. They should have a strategic way of pricing their phone.

"This way, Samsung could prove that it is fully serious about its dedication to its customers. By offering the Note 8 at even a slightly lower price than the Galaxy Note 7, the South Korean tech giant could send a powerful message to the mobile market. A message that states that the firm is unafraid to do what it needs to do in order to take care of its user base," he said.

Currently, there is no release date announced for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. However, it is expected to be released on August this year.
