Samsung Galaxy S8 Variants to Feature Different Display Screens and Cameras

2017 Samsung Galaxy S8

Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are still the talks of the town, months after the two were released following their launch at the MWC 2016 in Barcelona.

Even as the talk of these two keeps growing, including the latter being named as the best smartphone in 2016, shape is beginning to take place as far as the 2017 Samsung Galaxy S8 is concerned. There have been claims that the South Korean tech giant might decide to come in with the Galaxy S8 a bit earlier so as to offset the faulty Galaxy Note 7, however, other experts are adamant that the phone will keep to its usual launch date at the MWC event.

In addition to the speculations surrounding the launch date of the Galaxy S8, some new rumors are adding that the company could replace the S Voice app with a new Viv AI app. Furthermore, it is thought that the Galaxy S8 variants to be unveiled will come with different display qualities as well as cameras, something similar to what Apple and Google do with their flagships.

Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are only differentiated by screen size and design, with the former featuring a 5.1-inch QHD flat screen as opposed to the 5.5-inch curved dual-edge variant found on the S7 Edge. Apparently, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Edge will keep the same screen sizes, but the smaller will come with a Super AMOLED QHD panel with curved edges as opposed to the Super AMOLED UHD panel with curved edges on the 5.5-inch model.

It is also rumored that Samsung Galaxy S8 Edge could make the jump to the dual-lens camera setup while leaving the standard S8 with the single-lens setup, similar to what Apple did with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. However, both units could feature the iris scanner that debuted with Samsung Galaxy Note 7, whose production has been stopped.
