As reported by SamMobile earlier, the smartphone may feature a dual camera setup at the rear (a combination of 13MP and 12MP camera). At the front will be an 8MP camera to cater the needs of selfie enthusiasts. The smartphone is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 830 SoC and is tipped to sport 6GB of RAM.

Samsung typically introduces its new flagships at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) held in Barcelona in February. So, expecting the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus to be unveiled at MWC 2017 is a safe bet.
