That said, the successor of Note 7, Note 8, has been in the news since the onset of this year. There have been myriad of leaks and rumors regarding the device. The recent one suggests that the device will release earlier than its expected date, which is late August or early September.

Further, since Google is supposed to release the new operating system, Android O in the Q3, it is highly unlikely that the device will run on Android O. So, our best guess says that the device will come with Android Nougat 7.1.1 on board.
