Samsung Galaxy S8 to have major facelift and hardware changes
Samsung suffered a loss of more than $6 billion with the Galaxy Note 7 debacle, and more than that, a permanent tarnishing of global image to their brand. To rectify the situation, Samsung has big plans in mind, and Galaxy S8 smartphone will see a major facelift to place them back on the top position. This is just the tip of the iceberg, as the cosmetic change will surely be accompanied by other hardware changes to make this flagship irresistible.
According to Bloomberg, Samsung is going to drape S8 in a bezel-less display with a virtual home button under the glass, located in the lower section. The phone will have a bigger all-glass curved display means that the probability of fingerprint sensor moving to the back of the phone is high. The phone will most probably have
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 for more processing power in its guts.
There are also rumors about a virtual assistant which uses voice commands for texting, placing phone calls or scheduling daily appointments. On the hindsight, Samsung is not going to have a dual camera for the S8 owing to the high manufacturing costs.
Samsung is planning a March release for the phone, but it could be pushed ahead in the wake of issues encountered with Note 7.
