Samsung is at the receiving end for the all the bad stuff for nearly a month due to unexpected explosions of Galaxy Note 7. The South Korean giant quickly recalled the smartphone, however, that didn't help the company to deflect heavy loss.
Now, with the Galaxy Note 7 recalled, and might go on sale from September 28, Samsung is pushing hard at their next flagship- the Galaxy S8. We have already seen some rumors even before the launch of Note 7 like the dual-edge displays, 6GB RAM, etc.
For now, there are various rumors circulating over the internet regarding the Galaxy S8 and Samsung might launch it sooner than expected. Take a look at all the leaked rumors about the Galaxy S8 till date.
Only One Edge Variant of the Smartphone
A survey conducted in the month of September revealed that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is getting more sales than the normal flat panel Galaxy S7. So, Samsung might ditch the flat panel variant of the smartphone and release two Galaxy S8 phones with the edge display.
Two Curved-Display Variants
As said earlier, Samsung is planning to ditch the flat panel display variant of the smartphone. So, we are expecting that the South Korean giant will only launch two edge display variants this year.
2017 will be the Apple iPhone's anniversary. So, the Cupertino giant will completely overhaul their smartphone. So, Samsung is expecting to release the Galaxy S8 with massive design changes to compete the next generation iPhones.
No 3.5mm Headphone Jack
This was far from expected. Samsung is planning to ditch the 3.5mm headphone on the Galaxy S8 following the footsteps of Apple.
They are Codenamed as Dream and Dream 2
A rumor which was popped online two months ago showed that Samsung is internally calling the smartphones are Dream and Dream 2.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 SoC and Adreno 630 GPU
As expected, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be powered by the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 processor along with Adreno 630 GPU.
Might Feature a 4K Display
Samsung is secretly working on a new concept called 'Dream', in which the company will be heavily focusing on the display technology and virtual reality. One of the Galaxy S8 variant is expected to ship with a 4K display.
6GB of RAM
Samsung is planning to integrate 6GB of RAM in the Galaxy S8 series, which is slowly becoming the norm in smartphone industry.
