Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus has a new logo and it was revealed just hours after the company completed their trademark filing.
They are also working on a bunch of new features to compete with iPhone 8 and other models Apple has planned.
The Twitter post was made by Evan Blass who revealed the logo for the Samsung Galaxy 8+ which is supposed to be the bigger of the two devices ready for launch. All the rumors made so far are purely speculations. While some of them may have strong backing from the official sources, you should always take them with a pinch of salt as many of these features may not find its way to the phone when it gets launched.
According to the latest rumor, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus and the S8 will feature a new voice assistant named Bixby. The new voice AI is being designed from the ground up to seamlessly integrate with Google’s own voice assistant but will have many unique features that will be available only on the Samsung flagship phone. When it gets launched, it will support eight different languages. Another nifty feature the rumor claims is that you will be able to make payments by sending a voice command and Bixby will get it done for you.
In terms of specifications, the Galaxy S8 Plus will be an immensely huge phone sporting a large 6.2-inch display. The company is not trying to replace the Note anytime soon. They will obviously launch the Galaxy Note 8 despite the fiasco they had last year. It will make use of the stylus to make it easy to navigate and use the large screen whereas the S8+ will take a different route.
The phone uses the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor along with 8GB of RAM and most possibly a QHD display to keep the display as sharp as possible. Everything about the upcoming model sounds promising so far and we can know more about the camera, performance as well as pricing when it gets launched. Samsung is not going to launch them at the Mobile World Congress 2017 event scheduled to take place by the end of this month. They sent out invites with teaser images that shows the Galaxy Tab S3 and the hybrid tablet but not the Galaxy S8. The devices could be launched in a separate Samsung Unpacked event later this year.
