Samsung has had a tough year, mainly due to the costs incurred from the exploding Galaxy Note 7 devices. Moreover, however, the company is suffering from the bad press from media and the coinciding doubts of consumers. Nevertheless, the tech company is going to give everything to its next flagship, the Galaxy S8, beginning with technology it was developing in the unsafe handhelds.
According to GSMArena, Y-OCTA display technology - first seen on the Galaxy Note 7 - will make its way again to the upcoming Galaxy S8. Using the same display technology will allow Samsung to cut costs and thickness, as it requires the embedding of the touch sensors within the screen itself. Comparatively, standard technology requires that a touch latr is placed between the panel and the protective glass.
Forbes adds that Samsung will also undoubtedly remove the physical home button from the face of the screen. Furthermore, the fingerprint sensor will already be built into the screen itself. This will give the Galaxy S8 an air of cutting edge technology and a new approach to smartphone design.
The publication goes on to say that Samsung may be using this same technology, not because of a lack of innovations, but more because it did not receive feedback on the Note 7, which it would have otherwise. This would mean that the company has no clear idea about what to fix and improve on - other than the safety. Features. Nevertheless, the Galaxy S8 definitely has some ground to cover for the company.
Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S8 at the MWC in Barcelona. The event will take place in just three short months, so the public will see the handheld in the flesh soon enough. Surely, all eyes will be on the Korean tech giant as it releases its comeback device. Though nothing has been confirmed at this point, it certainly looks like the upcoming handheld is poised for greatness.
