Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S8 – Rumours about the super-smartphone

Samsung seems to be getting serious with its new Galaxy S8 smartphone: If you believe the many rumours, the release of the new flagship smartphone is not too far away. This is now regularly accompanied by new information on the specifications published independently by various sources.

Which information we are told, ultimately may still be dependent on the official departments of Samsung. Nevertheless, we will tell you what innovations we consider probable.

Galaxy S8: Has Samsung learned from the note 7 debacle?Image result for samsung galaxy 8

Normally, the Korean smartphone manufacturer uses the annual Mobile World Congress (MWC) for the presentation of new models, which will take place this year from February 27 to March 2 in Barcelona. However, the press announced that the new super smartphone would be present but not accessible to the general public. Possibly only selected representatives from specialist magazines etc. will have access to a demonstration model. The reason for the postponement, apparently is because of the battery debacle through which the Galaxy Note 7 had received a sad notoriety. To avoid this, the new devices are tested more intensively than ever before.

About the Galaxy 8

The processors are purported to be 11 percent faster, provide 23 percent graphics and use 20 percent less battery. Which is good, because the devices are maintaining the same battery sizes, 3,000 and 3,500 mAh, despite the larger screens. Of course, it’s possible Samsung has also made the displays themselves more efficient.

Other leaked specs indicate the phones will remain at 4 GB RAM, but get a boost to 64 GB of storage by default. While the selfie camera is getting a boost from 5 to 8 MP, the rear camera will remain at 12 MP. Of course, resolution is just a part of the equation, and we don’t know if Samsung is making other improvements to the hardware.

Samsung Galaxy 8 Release Date

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 will be unveiled on March 29th. The back of the device is very similar to last year’s Galaxy S7 (with theImage result for samsung galaxy 8
exception being a relocated fingerprint sensor), but the front marks a fairly radical departure from Samsung’s typical design. Gone are the physical home button and touch-sensitive navigation buttons; instead, a large, curved display that seemingly runs edge to edge dominates the Galaxy S8. Samsung is said to be planning a worldwide April 21st release for the device.

The hardware specs of Samsung’s upcoming phone break down like this:

  • Display: 5.8-inch or 6.2-inch QHD AMOLED display
  • Cameras: 12-megapixel f/1.7 rear camera, 8-megapixel f/1.7 front
  • Processor: Snapdragon 835 or Samsung Exynos (varies by market)
  • Storage: 64GB with microSD expansion
  • Memory: 4GB
  • Battery: 3000mAh (5.8-inch model) or 3500mAh (6.2-inch model)
  • Other: Headphone jack, USB Type-C, water resistance
