The Samsung Galaxy S8 is one of the most awaited smartphones from Samsung partly because it is billed as the device that could repair the bad reputation caused by the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 fiasco.
The latest Galaxy Note series had to undergo two recalls before Samsung finally pulled the plug – just a few months after its official launch. There have been quite a lot of rumors surrounding the Galaxy S8, which is expected to be the best phone made by Samsung by quite a distance. The South Korean company is also reportedly taking a lot of precaution in order to ensure that the Galaxy S8 does not face the same fate as the Galaxy Note 7.
The latest rumors surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S8 have almost confirmed that the device would have a 4K display. It would not be the first phone to do so, with the Sony Xperia Z5 claiming that title, but the Galaxy S8 would be able to offer 4K resolution at all times unlike the Sony device. In order to take advantage of this insane amount of resolution, the Galaxy S8 is expected to offer a 5.5-inch screen rather than the 5.1-inch display seen in the current models. Even at 5.5 inches, the 4K resolution may not offer much of a difference to the user but it would be a statement of intent from the company.
Virtual reality is starting to go big in recent years, and Samsung wants to be part of this revolution. The company already has several VR headsets for its smartphones, but the 4K resolution coupled with an incredible snapdragon 830 processor could significantly change things on the Galaxy S8. It is also rumored that the device would also offer 6 GB of RAM – an increase of 2 GB over the Galaxy Note 7 and the current Galaxy S7 Edge in this regard.
If Samsung decides to offer the snapdragon processors only the North American region, other markets around the world could get the Exynos 8895; both processors are being manufactured using the latest 10-nanometer processes and are expected to offer a new dimension in terms of processing speed. After several rumors about an early launch, it seems that Samsung is not going to prepare the launch of the Galaxy S8. The phone is very much expected to be made official during the Mobile World Congress in February just like in the past.
