The Galaxy S8's release date is said to be on April 21, which is close enough but at the same also so far away when one is dying to get their hands on the 2017 premium Samsung flagship phone. However, thanks to the relentless leaks regarding the device's possible specs and features, tech fans already has a rough idea of what it will look like and how powerful it will be. So, what did the leaks reveal?
New Design Overhaul Confirmation
Just last month, cases makers have spilled the Galaxy S8's design with three independent leaks. On the leaks, it depicted a bezel-free design partnered with a super-sized display. This month, pictures of what could be the actual casing designs and the final design of the device were leaked at Weibo and they all matched the earlier cases.
On the latest leak, it showed a picture of the Galaxy S8's bottom half design where a 3.5 mm headphone jack was visible, a nearly borderless display, a software-based home button, curved edges, a speaker grille, a microphone, two antennas and what appears to be a Type-C charging port. It also showcased that the phone itself was made out of metal and glass.
A Massive Performance Increase
Aside from the beautiful and elegant design, the Galaxy S8 will be more powerful than ever, thanks to the Snapdragon 835 chip that it will be rocking. But of course, the same goes with its Exynos 8895 processor which will be packed on the variant to be sold worldwide. According the leaks, the standard model is expected to have 4 GB of RAM while the larger one could possibly have 6 GB of RAM.
A Safer And Larger Battery Capacity
Samsung does not want a Galaxy Note 7 repeat and they have taken extra measures to make sure that doesn't happen. So, aside from the fact that the South Korean tech company delaying the unveiling event for the Galaxy S8 to conduct more tests and being choosy on who will be their other supplier for batteries, the latest leaks reveals that the 2017 flagship phones could have a 3,250 mAh battery and a 3,750 mAh battery for the larger model.
