First Look at Samsung Galaxy Note 8”

It's the circle of life.

In light of what occurred a year ago with the Note 7, The Samsung Galaxy S8 has to come bigger with much to prove, so much so that could mend its predecessor's disastrous incident. But don't shed too many tears for the wasted parts just yet - numerous Note 7s will "die" so that new devices can be made from their parts.

Samsung CEO DJ Koh confirmed that the Galaxy Note 8 will be released in late August - early September. That includes salvaging metals such as copper, gold, and silver from components that can not be reused.

Following the recall of millions of Galaxy Note 7 devices previous year owing to exploding batteries, Samsung on Tuesday announced that it is planning to recycle those handsets, expecting a recovery of almost 157 tonnes of rare metals, including gold.

As for those components that can be reused on other devices, Samsung intends to salvage things such as the camera module, chips, and even the displays for use in repairs or sales. Note 7 had caused a very big loss for Samsung due to their overheating batteries.

Meanwhile, the substantial share of recovered metals and parts sourced from used handhelds will be recycled starting this month.

Samsung's statement, which we've roughly translated, says the company will "cooperate with domestic and foreign companies to extract and recycle electronic parts", and has "specific plans for eco-friendly treatment" of the devices, which is consistent with the project's originally stated goals.
