We know that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will launch next month. There is no shortage of rumors about the smartphone. The Samsung S8 will come with a refreshed look and design. One of the highlights is, it will have no home button. The leaked images show the phone will have an almost bezel-less display.
Well, there are chances that iPhone 8 and Samsung S8 might have the same features when it comes to design and looks. The almost bezel-less display and no “home” button clearly say its design will be somewhat iPhone 8 like. Few reports also suggest that the firm is working towards a 60 million shipment goal. It is lesser than the previous Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge devices. If the company wants to make profits after the disaster of Note 7, it needs to set up a bigger margin.
More display features of Samsung Galaxy S8
More display features include a dual curved display along with a lot of sensors and the front facing camera just above the display. The leaked images also offer a glimpse of the iris scanner present on galaxy S8. There are rumors about the iris scanner to be present on Samsung Galaxy S8 for quite some time now.
There will be a 3.5 mm audio jack on the Galaxy S8. Samsung might also use the USB Type-C port. The speakers are at the bottom of the panel. The new leaked images also offer a glimpse of the company’s new UX and the always on display.
The “always on” display might consume more battery than any other Samsung devices. Thus the S8 must have more mAh than Galaxy S7 or any other previous devices. The Handsets will hit the market by April. The company has high expectations once the handsets hit the market.
S8 might have the virtual reality feature
Other leaks also suggested previously that there will be a fingerprint scanner. Since there is no home button, the fingerprint scanner is shifted to the back. Samsung is also working on the edge to edge display. Samsung will also introduce a button for the voice based smart assistant Bixby. The dedicated button will trigger the assistant. It can do image based queries. The Samsung Galaxy S8 will be unveiled on March 29.
In another image, the Apps Edge menu that was available on Samsung Galaxy 7 Edge is also present in S8. Some are of the opinion that this one might be the Samsung Galaxy S8+ plus. It is hard to tell at this point. The S8 variants will come in two versions. One is the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the other is the Galaxy S8+.
The Galaxy S8 will have a 5.7-inch display and the Galaxy S8+ will have 6.2-inch screens. Samsung is also looking to bring out the new virtual Assistant Bixby. Both the devices will come with latest Snapdragon 835 processor and 6GB RAM. In few other markets, the S8 might also come with Exynos processor. One more highlight of the galaxy S8 is the dual rear cameras.
