After the Note 7 fiasco last year that badly tainted Samsung’s reputation, the smartphone giant is braced up to launch the new smartphone in the Galaxy flagship. Even though the market is jam-packed with rumors, a recently leaked image gave us the first glimpse of Samsung Galaxy S8 design and it is so cool!
Recently, the Slashleaks shared the front view of upcoming Galaxy S8 that features its curvy, dual-edge, shiny body. Compared to the previous Samsung models, the new Galaxy S8 seems a variant of the Edge series. It surely has a greater screen-to-body-ratio in comparison to the Galaxy S7 series. Larger display screen will come in handy for readers who regularly check their phones for news updates.
A flurry of leaks from random sources claim that the company will launch to screen sizes. The company is in process of developing a big-screen version Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, which is likely to carry a 6-inch display screen. It’ll effectively fill in the gap between Galaxy S phones and the world-renowned Galaxy Note series.
What’s more? It’s rumored to carry an external S-Pen stylus. So, if you don’t have a good typing speed, you can just scribble down your notes in a meeting. The competitive pressure-sensitive technology that works similar to Apple’s 3D touch, will enhances its functionality further.
The interesting part is that the new Samsung Galaxy S8 design will do away with the signature home button placed below the display screen. Good thing, since it was turning out to be quite dull and boring. Many smartphone companies like Google have got rid of this feature ages ago.
Also, it’ll get rid of the 3.5mm headphone jack and rope in 8GB RAM for better functions. The new S8 will be dedicated to selfies. Therefore, the front camera will come with an autofocus feature. One of its variants will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 SoC whereas the other one by Exynos 8895.
The aforementioned features have already elevated the excitement level. Now we await the launching of Galaxy S8 that will hit the markets by April 2017. We know the waiting period is too long, but it’s just that Samsung will take no chances this time. They’ve to introduce the best model in order to re-gain the lost confidence of their consumers.
