Samsung Galaxy S8 Will Not Feature 4K Resolution
Samsung´s next flagship Galaxy S8 will definitely be one of the most promising smartphones in 2017, not only because of the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, but also because many expect the absolute greatness of this product, considering how the South Korean company has excelled its quality almost every single year. However, far from what the rumors had said about this phone, the Galaxy S8 will not feature the 4K resolution that many expected, and will stick with 2560x1440 pixels.
Not Featuring A 4K Resolution Might Be A Risky Move
According to the International Business Times, in addition to the absence of the expected 4K resolution, this phone will switch to a new type of Super AMOLED panel that would be designed from a new substrate that could make this product something aesthetic and pretty to look at, and of course, less power hungry.
Although the phone appearance is always important in the big leagues were Samsung and Apple compete, it remains unknown which could be the customers reaction on this issue, considering that even when the Galaxy S8 would be a spectacular phone that would have great features and look sublime, the 4K resolution is one of the most important details that many other smartphones are going to be equipped with.
Samsung Will Imitate Its Main Competitor
According to the Telegraph, the situation about the 4K resolution will not be the only detail that will contradict the rumors that has been said about this phone, since the South Korean company has decided to remove the headphone jack, just as the Cupertino giant recently did with the iPhone.
Just like what has been said about the 4K resolution, the other information that could balance the huge change that represents the removal of the headphone jack is that Samsung could include in the S8 dual speakers akin to HTC's highly acclaimed BoomSound setup, which could be great news for the customers. In any case, we just have to wait a couple of months, since it is believed that the company might release this flagship during February's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
