Samsung Galaxy S8 Rumors: 2160x3840 Pixel Resolution, 6 GB RAM, Water Resistant Body
After all the controversies and nonstop news about the Note 7, it looks like Samsung is ready to move forward. Now, people's attention is gradually turning towards the Samsung Galaxy S8. Yes, this device is bound for a 2017 release, but rumors about it are already out in the open. After the safety concerns that the latest Samsung flagship has brought up, the Galaxy S8 sure is under a lot of pressure.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Specs
Keeping in mind that the Samsung Galaxy S8 is still unconfirmed, spec details about it are simply a product of leaks and predictions. However, more often than not, rumors and leaks end up being true. In the case of the Samsung Galaxy S8, a good deal of specification details have already surfaced online. According to GSMarena, the Galaxy S8 is very likely to come with a water resistant body and Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection. Since it is arriving next year, the phone would probably run Android Nougat. Furthermore, when it comes to memory and storage, it was said that the Samsung Galaxy S8 is coming with 6 GB RAM, 256 GB microSD capacity, and 64/128 GB internal storage.
However, the most interesting part of the Galaxy S8 could probably be its display. Rumors state that the S8 is coming with a hefty 2160x3840 display resolution. That's approximately 840 pixels per inch in density. Both the Galaxy S8 and the Note 7 support 4K, but the latter only has a 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution with 518 pixels per inch density.
The Note 7 is already hard to beat. If the S8 is indeed boosting its specs from the company's previous releases, it simply goes to show that Samsung is taking the game extra seriously after the troubles it met this year.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Release
Based on tradition, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will probably be released February or March of next year. However, since 2016 hasn't exactly been a traditional year for Samsung with all the recall, replacements, and relaunch happening around the Note 7, next year's release date could be affected. Whether the Galaxy S8 will be delayed or advanced, it's still hard to tell right now, but both options are possible.
According to an IBTImes report, Samsung could possibly release the Galaxy S8 in advance. This actually makes sense as this could help them in dealing with the sales crisis brought about by the recall. An analyst from Mirae Asset Securities also mentioned that the company can reduce the sales impact of the recall by releasing a new flagship instead of increasing the Note 7's revenue.
