Samsung Galaxy S8 To Focus On Virtual Reality: Specs And Design Rumors
There is a lot of excitement following Samsung's upcoming release of the Galaxy Note 7. It is expected to come with plenty of new innovations, so the anticipation is at an all time high. After all, the release is only a few days away. Despite this, however, there is already buzz about the Galaxy S8, which is expected to highlight the VR innovations from Samsung.
It is no secret that Samsung has taken some time and resources to develop the virtual reality arm of the company. It would see, however, that the Korean tech giant is going to incorporate this knowledge into the S8.
GSM Arena claims that, unlike the Note 7, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will come in a standard and an Edge option. Both variants will have a UHD Screen, which is 3840 x 2160px. This is actually a better resolution than the current Oculus Rift, that has a resolution of 2160 x 1200px. The display itself is estimated to be at least 5.5 inches, which is optimal for virtual reality.
However, there is more to VR compatibility than just a good resolution and a well-sized screen - there has to be power behind that still.
Although unavailable in the market as of now, the Galaxy S8 is expected to come powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 processor, or an Exynos alternate. Yahoo! News adds that it will also run on at least the Android Nougat 7.0, or the latest OS for Android at the time of release.
Of course, Samsung already has a VR headset in the market, which is compatible with present gadgets. That is, the Gear VR. It is currently battling it out with the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Google's Daydream VR. However, creating a handset that is set specifically to the needs and specs of the Gear VR may just be what Samsung needs to bring VR to the next, more publicly friendly level.
