Samsung Galaxy S8 leaks continue to launch the date approaching, the phone will be on March 29 in New York, according to reports. Now, Samsung has only confirmed that the Milky Way S8 will not launch the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2017) in Barcelona, along with the early galaxies of S7 and S7. Samsung Galaxy S8 + logo after the opening of the secret reporter Evan Blas, he also confirmed the Milky Way S8 will launch two versions.
Evan Blass put out a new tweet with the display sizes for the upcoming Galaxy S8 smartphone. The Galaxy S8 base variant will start at 5.8-inches, while the bigger variant called the Galaxy S8+ will sport a 6.2-inch display. Both will have SAMOLED display, which is not surprising given Samsung is the biggest manufacturer for AMOLED displays, and has been using these in its flagship smartphones for sometime.
Another leak from Weibo shows the front of the Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone with no home button, something which has been confirmed already. In January, Samsung had put out promotional videos for its Display Division, and in the end the video showed a smartphone with thin bezels on the top and bottom and no home button on the front.
This was taken to be the first look for the Galaxy S8, and we’ll have to wait and if see the new phones look anything like the image revealed in the video. Leaks of Samsung Galaxy S8 panels have also indicated there will no home button. Samsung is also expected to put in place a dedicated button on the side for its new upcoming voice-assistant, which is code-named ‘Bixby’.
If you go by Blass’ tweet, Samsung Galaxy S8 will be a pretty big smartphone. Basically, Samsung is pushing the base size to a 5.8-inch variant, which means users who were hoping for a more manageable size like a 5.1-inch phone as with the S7, can forget about it. The Galaxy S8 is also expected to sport a near bezel-less display, and the dual edge style we saw on the Galaxy S7 edge.
Interestingly, while the display size is getting bigger, Samsung might not increase the battery size significantly. Reports in Korean Media by The Investor said Galaxy S8 will come with a 3000 mAh battery, while the 6.2-inch version will sport a 3500 mAh battery. The Galaxy S7 had a 5.1-inch display and a 3000 mAh battery, while the 5.5-inch Samsung Galaxy S7 edge sports a 3600 mAh battery.
Additionally a new report on SamMobile suggests Samsung filed a trademark in Europe for ‘Samsung Hello’, which is being seen as the official name for the ‘Bixby’ voice-assistant. Bixby is expected to support seven to eight languages, and could also work on other Samsung devices as well, including home appliances in the future. The fingerprint scanner on the S8 will be on the back, if you go by leaked photos.
Samsung Galaxy S8 series is expected to come with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, which uses the company’s own 10nm FinFET technology that offers higher performance coupled with “40% lower power consumption,” according to Qualcomm.
According to the company, the smaller size of the Snaptragon processor in 835 would mean that more space within the phone was bigger or overall slim for cell phone designs. The previous report also said that Samsung is hoarding the 835 processor, and a flagship store that should not expect to use this processor for the MWC 2017. However, Samsung will also have a version of the phone that has its own Exynos processor, which is usually our entry into the Indian market.
Samsung will launch 6 gb RAM galaxy S8, increase base storage 64 gb, can have a 128 gb version. However, the galaxy S8 is not expected to move like the iPhone 7 plus dual-rear camera settings. Instead Samsung will stick to the 12 mp dual pixel technology camera we saw before the phone.
