A report from the Korean news publication ETNews is speculating that the next iteration will look a lot different. Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to launch in the year 2017 and Samsung will include the features to compete against the iPhone 7 and other smartphones.
The latest rumors suggest that the Samsung Galaxy S8 has 4K resolution on the screen which may remain the same size 5.5-inch like the previous one have. The front of the phone will only feature the display, no buttons or borders, perhaps a true edge-to-edge display with no bezels, that is not only curved on the left and right edges but also top and bottom.
No physical home button. Samsung could possibly use a new mechanism for tactile authentication might be the phone will implement a home button function behind tempered glass or in the display. Plus the fingerprint scanner built into a screen.
The possibility of Galaxy S8 will come out with dual rear cameras similar to the iPhone 7 plus.
According to the report’s source, the Galaxy S8 processor will be a hybrid of a Snapdragon 830 and Exynos chip.
Currently Samsung is dealing with the battery problems of Note 7, which made Samsung reputation suffer, that’s why company wanted to give the best phone, to win back the heart of their supporters.
Koh Dong-Jin, head of the tech giant’s mobile business, said in an interview, ”Samsung has considered that it would make the edge display as the identity of the Galaxy S smartphone lineup if the company can provide consumers differentiated user experience through software and user-friendly functions.”
