Sometimes I wonder if all these leaks are not really controlled marketing campaigns. It often happens that a few days before the expected release of the equipment, we can find in the network photos, which in theory should not see the light of day. We had to deal with a lot of rumors about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ smartphone. It seems that most of them were confirmed by recently published photos.
Samsung Galaxy S8 initially was expected to be presented during the MWC 2017. However, recently it turned out, that we will not see this smartphone during the most important event for the mobile technology market. Thus, Samsung is breaking its tradition of several years, because that’s usually the day before the start of MWC were organized conferences during which he was presented a new flagship family of Galaxy S. Samsung apparently needs a little more time to make sure that the Galaxy S8 is the perfect smartphone. Koreans can not now afford the slightest slip-up after the scandal with the Galaxy Note 7.
Galaxy S8 will be unveiled in late March or early April.
Samsung’s new flagship will be available for purchase in Korea in late April, but of course previously it will be officially presented to the world. But always before the release, we can find in the network “mysterious” pictures of the anticipated product. This time the interesting fact is that on one of the photographs can be seen working Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ mobile. As always, such news should be treated with caution, because we had to deal with several photomontages of implied smartphones. However, if you look at photographs below, you will notice that the phone does not have a home button, the screen covers the entire side edge and the top bar contains the correct number of notches on the front camera, iris scanner, and other sensors.
We also know the specification of Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.
The network leaked the specs of both models the upcoming flagship Samsung. They are very similar to each other, let’s start from the model Galaxy S8:
- screen size: 5.8” (full rectangle) / 5.6” (rounded corners),
- display: Quad HD+ Super AMOLED,
- main camera: dual 12 MP,
- front camera: 8 MP,
- the degree of protection against water and dust: IP68,
- iris scanner,
- storage: 64 GB + microSD card support,
- RAM: 4 GB,
- AKG headphones,
- other features: wireless charging (docking station sold separately), Samsung Pay, Samsung Knox,
- Operating System: Android, most likely Nougat 7.0.1 or 7.1.1
Galaxy S8+ model will differ only diagonal screen, which will be 6.2”. Quite likely, it is that with a larger screen Samsung will install the batteries with a larger capacity. It is a natural treatment, because users expect that both models will offer a similar operating time on a single charge. When it comes to chipsets, the Samsung prepares both models in two variants with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895. Both processors will offer similar performance, so therefore it probably does not make sense to think about which version will be available in our country.
