4K displays for Samsung Galaxy S8
Samsung is yet to release any phone with the 4K display resolution. There are rumors that Samsung will release the Galaxy S8 with 4K display resolution. It will also have the Super AMOLED display with 3840*2160 pixels. It will make the VR, look crispier. Another chance is, Samsung Galaxy S8 might also come in S8 and S8 Edge models with a 6.3 inches screen size. It might also ditch the flat displays.
No home buttons
Till now, all the Samsung devices had home buttons. The Galaxy S8 will not have a home button, and in place of it, there will be a fingerprint sensor. It will increase the display size of the phone, or it might also shrink the phone’s dimensions for one handed use.
There are chances that Samsung will release the Galaxy S8 with two different processors. One is powered by the Exynos Chip, and the other will be equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The latest news is, one will have the Exynos 8895 chip along with the Mali G71 for offering 1.8 times more graphics.
The other version will have Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor that will be produced using the 10-nanometer process for better efficiency. The Snapdragon 835 chip will offer a 27% boost in performance. Some claim that there will be an 8GB RAM while other reports say that it will be a 6GB RAM.
No headphone jack
Apple created a stir when it got rid of the headphone jack. This year Samsung Galaxy S8 might also come with no headphone jack. Some conflicting reports also say that Samsung might retain the headphone jack.
For the AI, the iPhone has got Siri, Microsoft has got the Cortana, and this time Samsung will come with the Bixby Assistant. Viv powers it. Samsung acquired the artificial intelligence company in October. The creators of Viv are the same people who created Siri.
One or two cameras?
In the camera section, Samsung might copy the dual camera setup of Apple because the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 can easily accommodate the dual camera setup. Samsung already filed a patent for it. In the front camera section, Samsung Galaxy S8 will have an 8MP camera with autofocus functionality. It will offer sharper selfies than the iPhone 7.
Samsung always opted for the MWC for releasing the mobile devices, but this time it might skip it. It will hold its “Unpacked” event in April where it will launch the Galaxy S8.
