Amid the halt in sales of the Note 7, people are now looking forward to what the Samsung Galaxy S8 may bring. Since this is the company's next flagship, it is now "paying extra careful attention" to the handset's development to avoid the same fiasco.
Among the biggest changes to happen to the Galaxy S8 is a dual-camera setup. "Currently Samsung Electronics is deciding whether to use all-in-one dual-cameras or separated dual-cameras," a component industry representative told ET News. "It already finalized a decision to use dual-cameras."
Samsung Galaxy S8 Expected Specs
Other changes noted by the report include a Snapdragon 830 SoC, a home button underneath the display, and possibly a bezel-less front panel. The South Korean company is said to be going for a "full screen" concept that will revolutionize the mobile industry.
Additionally, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is reported to come with a 4,200 mAh battery, a massive 6GB RAM, and internal storage options of 64GB and 128GB. Also according to rumors, the next flagship will sport Corning Gorilla Glass 5, a fingerprint scanner and the Note 7's iris scanner.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Release Date Soon?
According to Business Insider, the tech giant may be rushing the development of the Galaxy S8 in order to launch it earlier than originally planned. This may be due to the huge catastrophe that the Note 7 brought with its defective batteries.
However, a leaked target release date in February 2017 dispels the rumors. It seems that Samsung is not in a haste to push the production of the handset, which may be their next hope in regaining the faith and loyalty of their customers.
Even so, nothing official has been confirmed yet. It is best to wait for the Samsung Unpacked Event on Feb. 26, 2017 at the MWC to see the new specs, features and availability of the Galaxy S8.
