Following the launch of the most anticipated S-series, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge early this year, the South Korean tech-based company, Samsung Corp. is yet to release its new S-serie smartphone probably this coming year, according to sources.
The latest rumors suggest those in South Korea, China, Japan, and Taiwan will likely see both become available for consumer purchase at the beginning of April. Those in Europe and in the US will have to wait just a bit longer as the 2nd-3rd week in April 2017.
The phones are rumored to come with 4K Ultra HD display, which will bring the Galaxy visual experience to a whole new exciting level. The predecessor of the S-series already hailed the best in the display department with their beautiful OLED displays. The company showed off a prototype of its innovation during the Display Week Conference.
According to a tech blog, ChristianToday, the display measured 5.5 inches and boasted a jaw-dropping 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution and 806ppi pixel density. It was also designed to cater to Virtual Reality with Android N Daydream Virtual Reality support in tow.
Forbes believes that the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Edge will be the first to have the powerful new display, however, this isn’t yet confirmed.
“The site explains that the South Korea-based tech firm tends to upgrade its flagships’ displays bi-annually. Its last two releases donned the Quad HD display while the ones before that had full HD screens.”
As for the specs, the phones are rumored to come with 6GB RAM, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 processor, 4,200 mAh battery, a fingerprint sensor and an IP68 rating, 30MP rear camera and 9MP front camera, 64 and 128 GB internal memory and expandable with dual micro SD cards…. and more.
According to Galaxy8Info, Samsung Galaxy S8 features will center on increasing security while improving speed, productivity, and making both the S8 and S8 Edge more functional. We’ve been hearing about eye sensing technology for quite some time, and it seems that the company will be improving the eye scanner.
The retina eye scanner in both S8 models will be more responsive and take less time to register.
Expect to see a faster processor, more durable glass surround, better features, comparable price, and more functionality with peripherals.
Rumors have been speculating that the new price of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Edge will go for 850 USD and 900 USD respectively – slightly more than its predecessor at the time of launch, but Samsung is intent on keeping the launch day prices around the same.
We shall keep you posted!!!
