According to recent reports, Samsung has recently filed an application to trademark the phrase "Beast Mode" in the EU earlier this month, and it may just be a feature that's also going to debut along with the upcoming Galaxy S8 to outperform Apple's upcoming iPhone 8.
Samsung to use "Beast Mode" phrase
Recent reports have discovered that Samsung has recently trademarked the term "Beast Mode" in the European Union. This move has led to a lot of speculations that the South Korean tech company is planning to be adding that feature to the Galaxy S8 in 2017.
Rumored processors for the S8
Although Samsung hasn't revealed any specifications regarding the Galaxy S8 just yet, the handset has been rumored to come with Qualcomm's most powerful processor, the Snapdragon 835, or even the company's very own next-generation Exynos processor. Both of those potential chipsets will be built using the 10nm process, which is the similar technology that Apple is believed to be using for the upcoming iPhone 8 next year.
Qualcomm has also been believed to be working alongside Samsung in the development of the Snapdragon 835, which would possibly make the Galaxy S8 the only smartphone that is capable of taking advantage of the chip's full potential, as per recent reports.
The purpose of Beast Mode
According to speculations, this is going to be where the rumored Beat Mode feature will come in. Samsung has filed an application with the EU to be able to trademark the term earlier this month. Part of the trademark application has said that 'Beast Mode' will be covering all of Samsung's devices, including smartphones, mobile phones, app software, and all of its computers, as pointed out multiple online reports.
Although there has been no official explanation as to what Beat Mode actually is, rumors have indicated that turning on Beast mode on the Galaxy S8 will enable the processor to perform to its maximum power, according to several analysts' predictions. This would somewhat be an extension to Android Nougat's already amazing Performance Mode, where users are able to choose from four presets of high performance.
By turning on Beast Mode on the upcoming Galaxy S8, this will also, as rumors indicate, turn off power-saving features. This implies that users will be trading away longer battery life for the best possible performance of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or the new Samsung Exynos processor. Many believe that if this is really what Samsung's Beast Mode is for, the Galaxy S8 could potentially outperform the iPhone 8.
Will Samsung finally outduel Apple?
As pointed out by several experts, Samsung's Galaxy smartphones have never been able to fully outperform Apple's iPhones, and Beast Mode appears to be the Samsung's new way of finally changing that tradition. As of now, Beast Mode on the Galaxy S8 is all pure speculation. However, it wouldn't be all too shocking for Samsung to do everything it can to fully redeem itself from the Galaxy Note 7 disaster.
