With Samsung's Note series only accounting for 5 to 6 percent of the company's smartphone unit shipments, the company could bounce back from its recent flaming-phone scandal, analyst Mehdi Hosseini said.
The Susquehanna senior equity analyst said Tuesday that Samsung's expected release of its newest smartphone, the Galaxy S8, in early 2017, could help the company redirect attention from the Note series and offset some of the recent negativity surrounding the company.
"The Galaxy series is completely different and focused on a different part of the population," Hosseini told CNBC's "Squawk on the Street."
The analyst said that the company's profit is improving in other areas, and if it is able to focus on its more popular Galaxy phones and steer attention away from the Note series, it could succeed in protecting its brand.
Hosseini added that Samsung's brand and image are most in need of repair at this point.
