Adding weight to previous rumours, Kuo also points to a “full-screen display with no physical home button”, with Samsung instead opting for a built-in iris scanner on the front and a fingerprint sensor on the rear of the Galaxy S8.
Considering that the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are almost 2 years old, Android Nougat update might be the last major update hitting these devices. On the other hand, the Galaxy S8 Plus features a lock screen along with the phone and camera shortcut icons placed in its left and right corner respectively.
Samsung ran another 15-second teaser for the Galaxy S8 via TV on Thursday, stepping up its marketing. As expected, it will be one of the top-notch devices in 2017 and is seen to rival the upcoming iPhone 8 from Apple. The images were discovered in Samsung’s Smart Switch application, which allows users to transfer data to a new Galaxy device, according to the tech blog. He believes that the decreased demand for the Galaxy S8 will lower the flagship’s impact on the supply chain. It appears that the performance of its competitor’s new flagship has got Samsung concerned as it has aired a Galaxy S8 in South Korea to hype up the impending launch.
Leaked specs claim the Galaxy S8 will feature a 5.8-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display, while its dace could be 85 or 90 percent screen. If anything, it is not the first time we’d be seeing a Galaxy Note series device debut a ground-breaking technology. It will be powered by either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor or an Exynos 8895, depending on which market it will be released in.
And here’s my G6, only looking a little bit bigger than a standard iPhone 7, which is a very petite phone. It is also said to come with a 3,500 mAh battery, which means users can enjoy using their devices for longer periods of time without needing to charge. In addition to these aspects, the Galaxy S8 Plus boots Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box, going by the benchmark listing.
How the Galaxy S8 stacks up against other phones. While a device manufacturer is likely to reserve launching all speculated color options on the release date, Samsung might spoil its customers with choice this year in order to build trust lost after last year’s Note 7 fiasco.
