Samsung Galaxy S8 is deemed to be even better than all the other phones that the South Korean tech giant launched in the past. Company insiders reveal that the flagship phone will have better features and Samsung also took great pains to ensure that the problems with Galaxy Note 7 phones will not be repeated. There were leaked images of the handset and these were said to be the final product for the company's new flagship phone.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Specs

In the past, Samsung released two handsets and one has been dubbed as the Samsung Edge. Since both of the new phone models are going to use curved glass, this name is going to be dropped. The new leak confirms prior reports that the phones, which come in two varieties will have screens larger than the Note 7 -one has a 5.8-inch screen while the other will have a 6.2-inch screen. The device will have an aspect ratio of 18:9 and the screen would take up 83 percent of the screen. This means Samsung Galaxy S8 is going to have a larger display compared to Xiaomi Mi Mix and LG G6.

Another shocker about the latest leak is that Samsung might not put its logo in front of the phone and there is a headphone jack after all. As rumored, the Galaxy S8 is going to run on Snapdragon 835, which would use 20 percent less battery. Unfortunately, the battery size for the device remains the same at 3,000 and 3,500 mAh.

The phones will have the new digital assistant Bixby. Aside from that, Samsung could include the virtual search function and the DeX that allows users to operate their devices in desktop mode.

Samsung Galaxy 8 Release Date

Aside from all the excitement for the new features of Samsung's flagship phones, more users are interested to know when it will be released. The Mobile World Congress is happening soon but Samsung will not announce the Galaxy S8 there yet. The company wants to be thorough in checking the quality of its new devices. However, it might not be such a long wait as the company could launch the new flagship device on March 29 at the New York Unpacked event. The phone's release date will follow on April 21.
