Samsung, well known huge Korean brand is ruling the smartphone market, either it is the market of Budget phones or the Flagship segment. If we talk about the recent successful phones from Samsung then the first name which comes in our mind is the Galaxy Note 7, which comes with exceptional features like Iris Scanner and the S7- series which comes with Water resistant technology and much more. And in the low priced devices, the phones like Galaxy A7(2016) and the J2(2016) are linked by a big majority of consumers. So, we and all consumers also expect more innovational features from Samsung in future, by the term future we mean to talk about the Samsung Galaxy S8. The craze of the Galaxy S7 is present in the market but the leaks and rumors about its upcoming sibling, the Galaxy S8 are already on the internet. So let’s checkout the Leaks and Rumors regarding the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8.
Like the Galaxy S7, the Galaxy S8 will also come with a Dual SIM option with the support of 4G connectivity. It is possible that Galaxy S8 will come with a Hybrid SIM Slot because most of the manufacturers are using this technology in their phones. It may come with 32GB/64GB/128GB storage options with a expandable storage upto 2TB’s via micro-SD Card. Like the previous phones of S-series it will also offer the Heart Rate Scanner on the rear.

And if we talk about the design, then we would say that from the Galaxy S6-series they have followed the right design for their phone because when Galaxy S5 was launched then most of us were dissatisfied, reason being the Plastic design which was not premium at all.
As per the now rumors and leaks the next galaxy smartphone named Galaxy S8 will come ditch the Home button. In the past galaxy series we had witnessed a physical home button below the screen display. Park Won-sang Samsung’s principle or we can say a main Engineer, tipped that they are focusing on a OLED which will get greater than 90% screen-to-body ratio. Rumors about its display says that it will be of 99% screen-to-body ratio, which will be a complete bezel less screen, that’s why they are detaching the home button and they will implement a on screen home button. If the rumors about 99% screen-to-body ratio are true then it is going to be the best in class, because most of the smartphones are only have 80% screen ratio. Samsung Galaxy S8 design could be more thinner as compared to previous galaxy series smartphones.
Processor and RAM
On the processor department we cannot say much but as the specifications of the Global and the Indian version of the Samsung’s Flagship differs from each other, So the Global version the S8 will get power from the Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 830(64 bit) Octa-Core processor and the Indian variant will come with the Samsung’s upcoming Exynos 8895(64 bit) Octa-Core processor, but if we look at the recent new from source the device will be packed with the all and one monster Snapdragon 835 processor, which will be beast of all the times, and will be able to do many intensive things.
Samsung S8 might sport 6GB’s of RAM because Oneplus have already challenged the big manufacturers in terms of specifications by its Flagship killer Oneplus 3, So it is possible that Samsung galaxy S8 will get 4GB as well as 6GB RAM as optional variant. 6GB RAM version will come coupled with 256GB of internal storage and 4GB RAM variant with 64GB and 128GB of internal storage, the latest leak of this device suggest the it will come packed with a massive menturus storage of 256GB, which will never let you feel empty.
The upcoming S8 will be more performance oriented phone as well as at the same time it will save more power because it may sport a processor based on 10nm manufacturing process.
Samsung Galaxy S8 may offer a 5.2(inch) Super AMO-LED panel with 4K resolution. We are expecting a 4K screen rather than a 2K panel because when in future the S8 will launch, at that time other manufacturers will also using the same technology so Samsung has to maintain its position. And we will also experience the Curved-Edge display on the upcoming S8.
Samsung will use the Curved screen as per different sources it becomes clear that Samsung will make this Dual-Edge screen as their signature feature in every Flagship phone. And as the upcoming Gorilla Glass 5 is on its way but it is rumored that Galaxy S8 will come with Gorilla Glass on the front as well as on the back. And we all know that if a Smartphone is having a 4K screen then its pixel density will also going to be mind blowing, So it will have a pixel count of around 847ppi. Some sources suggest it will have two variants: 5.7-inches and 6.2-inches, which looks little bit oversized and could be difficult to hold it in smaller hands. If the Samsung Galaxy S8 display will support with 4K resolutions then surely you are going to get a mind-blowing VR experience, which will be better than any other device. However, it still isn’t clear the it will have 4K resolutions, beacuse some rumors suggest that Samsung Galaxy S8 display will be of QuadHD, which is too similar if compared to 4K resolutions. The smartphones will use a curved display like previous series. The smartphone is expected to come with three sided edge screen, where home button will be provided on the screen itself, with a fingerprint security. You can look at the image above, it may some how look like this.
As in general language we can say that Camera is the eye of a smartphone, So as we have experienced a 12MP camera in the Galaxy S7, we know that the Galaxy S8 will bring a lot of improvement in terms of Camera but according to us Samsung will not going to change the resolution because they have discovered a sweet spot in terms of megapixels.
Samsung Galaxy S8 camera will have a 12MP rear sensor with their Dual-Pixel technology, PDAF(Phase Detection Auto Focus), Dual-Tone LED Flash, Aperture f/1.7 and on the front it will have a 8MP snapper on the front for handling Selfies. According to our expectation it will have a 8MP front camera because all other brands like Oppo, Oneplus, Xiaomi have started using better Camera sensors in front camera, So because of this reason Samsung also has cope up with them. Some rumors also suggest that Samsung could adjust 12MP dual rear cameras in its upcoming galaxy s8, which will be best in class and will compete with Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus.
In terms of smooth video recording, it will come with 4-axis OIS coupled with software stabilization which means you will not face any more shaky or blurred videos and images.
For handling that much heavy hardware a device should also have a top notch battery and at the same time it should not occupy a big space otherwise the thickness of the phone will also going to increase. So it will have a non-removable 3500mAh battery and will support Fast Charging along with a USB Type-C port for Charging. As per the rumors the Charging speed of the S8 will be as fast as the Oneplus’s Dash Charging. Samsung Galaxy S8 battery will be best in class, and as per the rumors the smartphone will also wireless charging, through which you can charge the smartphone without cable wire.
We are damn sure that it will have a Fingerprint Sensor on the front at the same position but in terms of speed it will be the improved one. The Heart Rate Monitor will also present on the Samsung Galaxy S8, NFC will be there, Bluetooth v4.2, Wi-Fi, GPS, etc. And for audio it will have a dedicated DAC for enhancing audio quality and levels.
The Android 7.0 Nougat is already out now not officially for all the devices, So Galaxy S8 will also run on the TouchWiz UI based on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat.
Galaxy S8 Price
We cannot comment upon the Price and the availability of the phone yet, because at present even the images of the phone have not leaked but we can expect that in India it might cost somewhere around 59,990 INR and in US can cost 878$, for the base variant because we consumers are already aware of the Samsung strategy, they launch the device with high pricing and as the time passes they lowers the price a bit. But Samsung Galaxy S8 price will be a key factor for this the company will surely try to keep lower than it’s competitors like iPhone 7 and other too
