Galaxy S8 Rumors: Samsung Flagship Leaks Detail New Features And Release Date
A number of new leaks have sprouted giving a clearer picture of what the Samsung Galaxy S8 is all about.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is looking more and more like its rival's flagship smartphone, the iPhone. This is both a good and a bad thing. It's good to duplicate the good traits of others but one needs to come up with his, her or its own identity. Fortunately, the new leaks show Samsung is on the right track.
The Galaxy S8 will sport an all-screen design similar to what the iPhone 8 will reportedly have. Both devices will also ditch the home button and instead have it integrated. Some rumors say that the S8 will have some of the iPhone 7's features including a pressure sensitive display and a phablet variant with dual lens camera which is similar to the iPhone 7 plus.
A new post on Weibo, China's version of Twitter, indicates the Galaxy S8 will come in a 256GB version. The iPhone 7 also came with a 256GB variant along with 32GB and 128GB ones. The Galaxy S7, meanwhile, only had 32GB of internal storage which could be expanded up to 256GB using a microSD.
Kevin Wong, head of the IHS in China, has indicated that the Galaxy S8 is one of two smartphones that will have the latest Qualcomm processor in the Snapdragon 835. The other one is the Xiaomi Mi 6. Aside from the Snapdragon 835, rumors say that the S8 will have Samsung's own Exynos chipset under its hood.
Samsung recently had the name 'Bixby' trademarked. This is an indication that Samsung next flagship phone will have its own voice-assisted AI system just like Apple's Siri and Amazon's Alexa. Bixby is the male-voice AI while rumors say a female-voiced AI, Kestra, will also be available.
The accessories of the Galaxy S8 have also been leaked, as reported by Forbes. Samsung's saviour will have as accessories: a premium faux-leather protective cover, a keyboard cover that supports a physical qwerty keyboard, a clear-view cover that allows the user to see the screen, and an LED view cover that makes it easier to see the notifications.
Wong also said that the S8 and the Mi 6 will be released in March next year.
