The OnePlus 4 and the S8 are the upcoming flagship phones that are the ultimate devices expected to kill other flagships in the 2017.
Here, they are pitted against each other to see whether the OnePlus4 could actually beat the S8.
Which One has the Edge?
Fans are eagerly waiting for the answer, as both the S8 and the OnePlus 4 are expected to be flagship killers in 2017. It is an intimidating task to find out whether the OnePlus4 or the S8 is the better phone, with respect to specifications and performance. However, it has to be said that the OnePlus 4 does seem to have an edge over the S8, with its new and enhanced features.
The S8 will have an enhanced battery compared to the S7 and even the 3000 mAh battery of the S7 was exceptional. However, the OnePlus 4 will come with a huge 4200-mAh battery. In addition, it is being speculated that the OnePlus 4 will offer wireless charging features, according to news from iTechPost.
Display and Screen
The S8 will come with a screen size of 5.2 inches and a resolution of 2160 x 4096 pixels. The OnePlus 4 will be bigger at 5.5 inches and have a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. The Chinese phone manufacturer has probably the VR abilities of the smartphone.
The International Business Times notes that Samsung will offer two variants of the S8 in 2017, and that both will come with curved screens. The design will probably be the same as previous phones of the series, but the S8 is expected to be slimmer.
The OnePlus 4 will be very similar to the others in the series and this could prove to be a drawback in the competition, as S8 is bringing in some changes at least.
The OnePlus 4 will come with an IRIS scanner and a 28 MP camera ta the rear, combined with a 21 MP front camera. As for the S8, it will also have an IRIS scanner, but a higher resolution of 30 MP for the rear camera and 8 MP for the selfie camera.
Rumors on OnePlus 4
The company remains quiet regarding the upcoming device. However, fans know that the main goal of the Chinese manufacturer is to improve on the earlier device at a minimal price. It will most probably be an affordable device at around $400. It might come with a better display of Quad HD. All rumors remain unconfirmed, but it will surely not be smaller than the 5.5 inches screen size, as the company has confirmed that they will not offer a phone of a smaller size, as it cannot cater to a big battery.
Rumors on S8
Though Samsung is quite busy with the Note 7 debacle, the company will not take the S8 phone for granted. In fact, the S8 might prove to be the saving grace for the company and improve the name of Samsung. The company could also benefit from the Viv AI purchased recently. The same AI firm is known for the creation of Siri, according to CNBC reports.
