What do we expect from the rumored Samsung Galaxy S8
Apple’s recent event in San Francisco really stepped up the game in the smartphone market and so it’s going to be interesting to see how its main rival, Samsung, is going to counteract the iPhone 7’s impressive new features. It’s been less than a year since the Samsung Galaxy S7 was released, and many have suggested that it could be the smartphone of 2016 thanks to its super-fast Exynos chip, beautifully detailed screen and the welcome return of the micro SD card slot.
However, there have been a few issues for the company with many claiming that the S7’s supposed waterproof facilities were not quite as water-tight as hoped, and with the embarrassing recall of the Samsung Note 7, it’s hoped that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will take some important lessons from these mistakes.
If the rumors are to be believed, then it looks like Samsung is going to be learning a few tricks from its competitors too as the Galaxy S8 could implement a similar dual-lens camera to that which wowed the critics at the launch of the iPhone 7 Plus.
Furthermore, the Samsung Galaxy S8 should hopefully also be able to handle 4K resolution which means that it’ll be VR-ready and perfect for the next generation of mobile games. In addition to this are the exciting rumors that both the 5.1-inch and 5.5-inch devices will adopt the curved screens that were such a big hit for the S7 Edge.
Such a development will undoubtedly be of great interest those who saw the S7 Edge as the ultimate mobile gaming device as its 1440p Super AMOLED display made the graphics in hectic sports simulations like My NBA 2k17 and some popular slot games.
How the Samsung Galaxy S8 will manage to power these technological breakthroughs will be anybody’s guess as there’s a limit as to how much battery power can be packed into these slim-line devices.
And with many tech sites already hinting that Samsung may use 2017 to showcase the first foldable smartphone, it shows that there’s no rumor that’s too outlandish for the world’s tech community.
But whatever happens, it’s clear that the next six months before the predicted launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be nearly as unpredictable as those endlessly entertaining slots games.
