Everything you need to know about the design and technical features of the Samsung Galaxy S8, which is expected to be one of the best smartphones of the year 2017
The excitedly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to be officially introduced in the next few months. During this time there are many rumors shared by some sources. Lastly, the famous names of the leaked Galaxy S8’s so-called true image, making it possible for us to have an idea of what the device would look like. We bring together all the rumors about Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S8 in this article:
Steve Hemmerstoffer, a trusted name with a leak, claimed that this photo belongs to the real Galaxy S8 via Twitter. Actually there is no way to confirm that it is true, but it seems to be on the same line as the rumors.
As you can see from the leaked photo on the top, the Galaxy S8 is probably not a physical Home button. According to ET News, the Home button may be buried under the windscreen panel. If so, it can look and function similarly to the new Home button on Xiaomi’s new Mi 5s smartphones. This means that you will physically react to touch instead of using a mechanical button that you need to press.
There are a few contradictory rumors about the screen size of Samsung‘s upcoming flagship ship. Speaking to the Korean Herald “industry sources”, the small model will be 5.1 inches, and the larger model will be 5.5 inches. However, the latest leaks say the exact opposite.
The GSM Arena says that upcoming Galaxy phones are getting information from a case maker about the dimensions and that the small Galaxy S8 will have a 5.7 inch screen. Galaxy S8 “Plus” will be called the big model of the 6.2-inch screen is said to be.
Along with news from ET News, this photo, taken from Samsung’s AMOLED screen advertisement video above, reinforced the rumors that the Galaxy S8’s screen would be thinly framed.In addition, Samsung has released several more videos that show where your mobile design is going. These images are particularly noticeable with thin-framed mobile devices. If all is true, Samsung can fit a larger screen on a device of the same size as the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
Korean Herald sources claim that both Galaxy S8 models will have a curved display and there will be no flat screen model. However, SamMobile, a reputable Samsung-related news site, claims Samsung will have a flat-screen model.
ET News claims that the Galaxy S8 will have a double-lens camera, one with 16 megapixels and the other with 8 megapixels. Another well-known leak in China’s social media site Weibo has claimed that the double lens will have 13 and 12 megapixel sensors.
It is still unclear what functions a dual-lens camera will offer on the Galaxy S8, as the dual-lens cameras on other smartphones do different functions. Our estimates will have the same functionality as the iPhone 7 Plus’s dual-lens camera, which can create an optical zoom instead of a digital one, in addition to creating a background blur effect.
Optical zoom stands out as a better technology than digital zoom. Because he is zooming in with the lens to enlarge the objects. Digital zoom only enlarges the picture, resulting in sharper and glossy pictures.
According to ET News, Samsung will add the incredibly fast autofocus feature of the Galaxy S7 to the Galaxy S8’s front camera. So you do not have to touch your face to make sure that the camera focuses correctly. This means you can take a selfie faster and get better photos overall.
According to ET News, the Galaxy S8 models to be introduced to the US market will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 chipset. Other international models will come with Samsung’s own Exynos chipset. There are very few details about these processors, but they are certainly very powerful (and hopefully efficient).
A number of sources, including leakers from Weibo and a Dutch-based blog called Galaxy Club, claim that Samsung will offer a smart virtual assistant with the Samsung Galaxy S8. According to Galaxy Club, Samsung’s smart assistant, who will join the ranks of other smart assistants such as Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant, will be called “Bixby”.
According to a SamMobile spokesperson, Samsung will integrate Bixby directly into its standard camera application. So instead of telling Bixby something, you’ll be able to show what you want to look for with the S8’s camera. This is an interesting possibility because Siri, Alexa or Google Assistant is not connected to any camera or camera technology.
SamMobile from one side claims that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will not come with a headphone jack. On the other hand, the cover designs that are claimed to be for the Galaxy S8 show a headset entry. So far only 3mm headphone jacks have been removed on iPhone and Motorola Moto Z phones.
Samsung drove to market the Galaxy Note 7 with the USB-C. This shows that the company at least thinks of passing microSB to USB-C in flagship devices.
The USB-C is gradually emerging as a new standard for microUSB for charging and data transfer. Mobile devices can be charged faster than normal microUSB (without fast charging technology), and can also be used for data transfer and video streaming to external monitors.
According to ET News, Samsung will feature an iris scanner similar to the Galaxy Note 7 on the Galaxy S8. The iris scanner on the Galaxy Note 7 could allow you to unlock some of your applications and folders, as well as your phone, for added security.
Some rumors claim that will introduce the Samsung Galaxy S8 during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February. SamMobile, a reliable source, says that Samsung will introduce the smartphone in an event to be held in New York City in March, and the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be on the shelves on April 18th.
