Samsung is heavily rumored for the Galaxy Note 7 (Note 6) that is likely to arrive this August. But, the rumor mills don't stop only with the foreseeable future.
There are gossips surrounding the next iteration of the flagship smartphone - Galaxy S8 as well. Well, it is the Galaxy S8 that might not go official until February next year.
Dual camera setup
Lately, we have been hearing rumors about a smartphone that will arrive with dual camera setup from the stable of Samsung.
As per the latest rumors, the Galaxy S8 will arrive with a dual camera modular at its back and it is claimed that it will be a homegrown component that will be devised by Semco (Samsung Motors).
4K resolution screen
As the VR trend is getting highly popular, Samsung Galaxy S8 is speculated to feature a 4K display with 2160 x 3840 pixel resolution. Undoubtedly, this screen will consume a lot of battery life, so a huge battery might be useful to get long backup.
Snapdragon 830 chipset
The Galaxy S8 might incorporate the Snapdragon 830 chipset. This chipset will definitely be advanced than the Snapdragon 820 chipset and it will be produced using 10 nm FinFET process that will provide more power and make it energy efficient as well.
We can expect a retina eye scanner in the Galaxy S8 as per the rumors. It is believed that the S8 will be more responsive and will take very less time to register with this feature. But, this is a speculation that we have heard before the launch of most Samsung flagship models.
6 GB RAM
While the OnePlus 3 is out with a 6 GB RAM, there are rumors that the Galaxy S8 might also feature such a large chunk of RAM under its hood making it performance oriented.
As of now, it is not clear on what other features the Galaxy S8 might arrive with. Especially, we don't know if it will have the IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. We believe that we will get to know more details about the device in the coming months.
