The Galaxy S8 is expected to maintain Samsung's current design language with glass panels wrapped around a metal frame. Samsung switched battery suppliers and sent out new devices.
Samsung has uploaded the new version of the video on YouTube featuring Collier. This will make it possible for users to extend the S8 models to a full "Galaxy Desktop" computer with an HDMI output of up to 4K and 30 frames per second (fps).
Apparently taking the Galaxy Note 7 into consideration, industry sources said the Galaxy S8 will also come with a smaller yet "safer" battery capacity. Leaks and rumours have been flowing non-stop for months now. The company lost more $5 billion due to the Note 7 recall.
The models will be equipped with an iris-scanner and a digital voice-assistant Bixby. We also have additional confirmation that the battery of the S8 is going to be 3000mAh, though the battery capacity of the S8+ is still unknown, though speculated to be 3,500mAh. Leaks also suggest that there will be no fingerprint scanner on the front. Meanwhile, the S8 Plus will have a 6.2-inch display. With over a million devices already sold when reports of the handset exploding started streaming in, it sure was one massive operation.
The Galaxy S8 is thought to have undergone a radical redesign in the past year, with the dual-curved-edge screen we previously saw only on the Plus variant now standard across the range. The phone will run on Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box.
Inside you will find the Snapdragon 835 processor, a new 10nm chip manufactured in partnership by Qualcomm and Samsung that integrates the Adreno 540 GPU. And if rumours are to be believed, India might get the Galaxy S8 with an Exynos 8895 chipset. Both smartphones will likely to be water resistant (IP68) in nature. The Galaxy S8 launch will happen in NY and London simultaneously on March 29. Samsung will announce the handset on 29 March, 2017 at 8.30 PM IST.
