Although the Galaxy S8 won’t be making an appearance at MWC’ 2017, it is still coming and is expected to be up for sale in the month of April. If you’re buying a new phone, is it worth waiting for? Or is the cheaper option, the better option? Let’s find out.
As per our source, the Galaxy S8 (measuring 140.14×72.20×7.3mm) will be slimmer and shorter than its predecessor.
According to a report, Samsung has decided to increase the screen resolution to Ultra-HD 4K, as the VR headsets reduce the resolution to half for each eye. However, we won’t be surprised if the Samsung Galaxy S8 retains the Quad-HD display from the Galaxy S7.
The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge didn’t possess a stylus but there’s speculation that the Galaxy S8 will feature the S-pen.
We are fairly certain that the Samsung S8 will replace the S7’s Snapdragon 820 processor with the newer Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. Inside the S8, the Adreno 540 GPU will also be included.
The Snapdragon 835 can accept RAM up to 8GB, though the more likely approach is 6GB for S8 given the fact that the S7 with the Snapdragon 820 chip, had 4 GB DDR4 RAM.
The Galaxy S7 has a 12 MP rear camera. But for the Galaxy S8 Plus, there is a talk of a dual camera to compete with the new Apple iPhone. The selfie camera will also be expected to have an upgrade.
In Galaxy S8, the Adreno 540 GPU promises a better battery life and also supports the new Quick Charge- 4.0, which gives 5 hours of battery life from just 5 minutes of charging, while the S7 has some serious battery issues.
The Galaxy S8 series will ship with the recent Android Nougat whereas the S7 series came with Marshmallow. However, Samsung S7 will be getting a Nougat update very soon.
After losing money on the Galaxy Note series, Samsung is back with a bang with Galaxy S8 series. With all these upgraded features, it’s likely to become an incredible upgrade for the gadget geeks.
