It is not a secret that Samsung is already in advanced stages of bringing out the Samsung Galaxy S8.
Admittedly, the company only recently launched the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 which has received a lot of positive reviews. However, the date is fast approaching for the Galaxy S7 to hide behind the curtains allowing the Samsung Galaxy S8 to take center stage. The new model of the Galaxy S series is likely to be launched in February or March. As with every other high-end smartphone, leaks and rumors have already begun.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is about to come with a new snapdragon 830 or Exynos 8895 processor. Both these powertrains are brand-new and are expected to take the computing power of the Galaxy S8 to new levels. The snapdragon 830 processor is expected to be clocked at around 3.6 GHz, which is slightly slower than the 4 GHz clock speed of the Exynos 8895 processor. These figures would make the phone’s supremely fast over the current generation Galaxy S7, which has a snapdragon 820 processor. This processor largely addresses the overheating issues and the major increment in speed is set to arrive only in the 830 series.
As a result of the snapdragon 830 processor, the Galaxy S8 may be immensely fast when compared with the next generation Apple devices. It is rumored that the Apple A10 chipset, which is the next generation of high-speed processors from Apple, is rumored to have only 2.6 GHz of clock speed.
Aside from an extremely powerful processor, the phone is rumored to have received the 6 GB of RAM treatment that many were expecting on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Instead, the Galaxy Note 7 with 6 GB of RAM will only be sold in China and the rest of the world has to do with only 4 GB of RAM. This puts it at a serious disadvantage with phones like the OnePlus 3 and Samsung is not ready to forgo the advantage. The Samsung Galaxy S8 will be a proper device with 6 GB of RAM.
It remains to be seen if the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be the first device from the South Korean company to sport a 4K resolution. In order to do so, Samsung may increase the screen size from 5.1 inches seen in recent generations. Further, the regular versions may also be dropped in favor of the edge variant just like the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
