Galaxy S8 Features | Specs, Price, and Release Date



Samsung has already launched the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge at the unpacked event couple of weeks ago, now that the 2016 flagships are out we can safely start our discussion about the upcoming Galaxy S8 and S8 edge smartphones which will be even more powerful and mighty. Yes, The S7 and S7 edge are one of the most powerful smartphones in today’s world but gives the fact that technology gets innovated daily its quite obvious that the S8 and S8 edge will be powerful than ever. Yes, it tab bit too soon to start our discussion about the Galaxy S8 and S8 edge, but doesn’t leave the fact that there aren’t any reports and rumors, yes we do hear some details every now and then on the same basis. So let’s get started with discussing department wise.

Samsung’s S series has always been the compact sized beats that sports smaller display sizes yet maintaining the power in the house. The design keeps getting evolved with each S series phone Samsung launches, we all know for the fact that S6 is a might design change over the cheap plastic build of the S5. The Galaxy S7 we all must agree that it looks some-what similar to S6 on some levels and we definitely are sure that Samsung is surely cooking something that might be beyond the reach of the previous generation S series smartphones. Though we keep saying that Samsung will undergo design changes, the company will retain the compact sized, 5.1 or 5.2-inches size display which is one of the most wonderful thing to happen for any flagship smartphones, compact is the new sexy is the saying that purely justifies Samsung’s S series.

We are even assuming the Galaxy S8 and S8 edge smartphones will feature the USB Type-C port which went missing on the S7 duo this year and by then USB Type-C will a thing, so Smart Samsung So Smart. The Curved build found on the S6 and S7 duo will also be present on the S8 and S8 edge which gives good grip and in hand feel, yes we do agree the S6 was slippery but take a look at the S7 which is less slippery and we are betting our stakes on that it will give good grip and feel in Hands. Perks of having a curved display and build is always a welcome addition on the S8 and S8 edge smartphones. The home button will be retained on the S8 and S8 edge as well that will also function as a Fingerprint sensor and like always it should be blazing fast, well isn’t it obvious?. This time around Camera bump will be completely embedded in the rear panel of the smartphones and the rear camera will be accompanied with Dual-Tone LED flash, and Samsung branding on the rear side. On whole the build quality will be mighty stronger, innovative and incredibly beautiful for any flagship that will launch in 2017.

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Edge Display

4K display on a smartphone is still not a main stream thing, we barely have a popular smartphone brand name with a 4K display-Sony Xperia X5 premium and some unknown or not so familiar brand names do have. We are yet to have proper content that can take advantage of the whopping 4K display and without proper content it’s just plain pointless to have it on board. 2016 should be a deciding year for Samsung to choose the display panel that will be used on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 edge. If I were to guess, I’d rather pick a 4K display which is kind of obvious given that we are already seeing the trend of 4K from all the main stream content providers  and given that AMOLED displays are the most beautiful display and imagine how incredible they look with a 4K panel over it.

Not that this isn’t obvious, we all anticipated that Samsung will be using the 3D touch on the S7 and S7 edge smartphones but we were wrong, Samsung has left behind the 3D touch feature. But don’t you worry, Samsung will surely bring it on with the S8 and the S8 Edge smartphones, what basically 3D is that is, it a 3 level pressure sensitive touch-touch tap, hold which is on some levels similar to that we have seen on the Apple’s iPhone 6s and the 6s plus smartphones. The always on glance display feature which was found on the recently launched S7 and S7 edge will remain even on the S8 and S8 edge. Other than the 3D touch, Always-on display features we can new level protection for the smartphones, probably Corning might come up with the next level Gorilla Glass 5 protection on top and it should be even more powerful than the Gorilla Glass 4.

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Edge Processor and Ram :

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 edge smartphones will be powered by Samsung’s very own Exynos chipset just like this year where the S7 and S7 edge smartphones that were powered by the Exynos 8890 chipset that were introduced earlier this year and an another variant that is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820Soc but that is limited to USA and other markets nearby, while the Asian markets will get the Exynos variant. We expect the same trend to happen even in 2017 with the S8 and S8 edge phones, the Exynos chipset will most probably designed by December 2016 and will enter the production from then and now that MediaTek has introduced the Deca-Core 10-core chipset, Samsung will try their luck with the Deca-Core based Exynos chipset and probably keep it under clocked to keep it in check with the heating issues. On the other hand, Qualcomm has just started rolling out the Snapdragon 820Soc with just 4-cores custom designed by Qualcomm and is the first 14mm chipset and own Adreno 530 GPU for graphical requirements. So with the Qualcomm Snapdragon variant, the company might come up with new chipset though we don’t even have a clue about the name, nor the details about the chipset we will surely have a Snapdragon variant with Adreno GPU. 
Coming to the Ram, the S7 and S7 Edge have 4GB of LPDDR4 Ram on board and now that we have already seen a smartphone with 6GB of Ram-The Vivo Xplay 5 we might also see similar 6GB of Ram or a massive 12GB of Ram that already in production if the recent reports and rumors are to be believed. Imagine a smartphone with 12GB of Ram? Before getting excited about it do ask yourself that do we really need that amount of Ram? Well Samsung thinks so. So it will either be 6GB of custom Samsung’s Ram or 12GB Ram that is already in production. The internal memory will be 32/64/128 and a 256GB variant mostly we might not see a basic 32GB Ram variant and the storage options start with 64GB. We might also see a MicroSD card slot similar to the S7 and S7 edge smartphones this year, though they are Hybrid we still have an option for it. Yeah, we all know that each variant will be priced differently and who knows Samsung might surprise us by launching a phone with 512GB internal storage if it is possible by any means.

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Edge Camera :

Though Samsung has cut down the megapixel count on the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge from a big 16-megapixel to 12-megapixel Dual lens shooter on the S7. It is being speculated that Samsung will use a whopping 30-megapixel autofocus primary camera and it is indeed the first smartphone after the Lumia 1020(41-megapixel) to feature such a big camera sensor and coming to the sensor part, we are placing our bets on Sony camera sensor but there is also a possibility that company might use its own camera sensor with ultra-wide angle camera sensor with Optical stabilization that will eliminate the shakiness in the videos and images captured instantly, Laser autofocus, PDAF(phase detection autofocus), f/1.8 aperture, given the fact that Samsung camera have always something beyond the reach we can expect the same thing to repeat with Galaxy S8 and S8 Edge. HDR mode, and typical Samsung shooting modes with new age live filters and many more. When we talk about the front camera, we have a 9-megapixel shooter with new selfie mode for selfies and video chats, it is safe to expect a selfie flash for better low-light captures, and we are expecting a new age facial recognition that can detect your face for taking selfies instantly. So the camera department is a huge improvement over this year’s Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 edge. Let’s hope we will see a path breaking camera sensor and performance. 

Fingerprint Sensor, Iris Eye Scanner :

Fingerprint sensors are nothing new we have been seeing the trend of Fingerprints even on budget segment smartphones as well so Samsung must be observing this and will most probably come up with something that will function beyond just a Fingerprint sensor, Samsung will add new age features like 10 fingerprint register option, lock apps individually, take pictures and many more. Also the fingerprint will also be useful for the Samsung Pay which is next big thing giving a tough competition to Apple Pay and Google’s pay. The fingerprint sensor needs to be something beyond of just being a fingerprint sensor to be a stand out. An Iris eye scanner is also a possible addition along with Fingerprint sensor, the iris eye scanner will detect your eye and unlock the phone automatically though this feature might a possibility but we still need to be sure about that.

Connectivity feature :

Connectivity features include 5G which should be a thing in 2017, already the work for that same has started, Bluetooth 5.0 which is a significant update from 4.1 which is currently being used, Dual SIM and both will support 5G, Dual MicroSD card slot for memory expansion, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, and many other connectivity features on board.
