Samsung is expected to launch its new flagship Galaxy S smartphones at the end of March while some theories suggest that the highly anticipated flagship killer Galaxy S8 will be released around mid-April. There have been plenty of leaks over the last couple of months regarding the device's specifications, design, and camera.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Camera
A new Samsung Galaxy S8 rumor claims that the smartphone will have an improved front-facing camera this year, though still not confirmed yet if it'll come with dual sensors. Moreover, it will sport a 9 MP snapper with "fast" autofocus and OIS. The Samsung Galaxy S8 camera is said to have improved low-light capabilities and also will sport a selfie-timer. The pixel size will increase to 1.4µm while the aperture is f/1.7. The main camera is likely to sport 30-megapixel and said to come with a visual search feature, showing different search options depending on the subject being photographed. It also is speculated to adopt an iris recognition module, which the Galaxy S7 lacked last year.
The Samsung Galaxy S8: Launch Date
Samsung typically reveals new phones at the end of February, but Samsung already confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S8 won't be announced at MWC 2017. The official launch date may happen a little more than one month later, with the newest believable leak of details claiming it'll be a March 29 launch event in New York. Other theories suggest that the actual Galaxy S8 launch date in the market is expected to be on April 21. Samsung's biggest smartphones usually go through a one month lag time between their debut and actual shipment dates, so that part at least checks out. Moreover, we've also heard about other possible release dates, including April 18.
