The expectations from Samsung Galaxy S8 are sky-high after the debacle of Galaxy Note 7 and it is likely to deliver the goods if one is to buy the information leaked so far. The flagship smartphone is expected to come with a complete overhaul on all fronts.
Galaxy S8 is expected to be released in April next year. Samsung has the tradition of unveiling its Galaxy S devices at the Mobile World Congress (MWC), but reports have suggested that its plan to incorporate artificial intelligence (AI) assistant service to the device could delay the launch.
Interestingly, TechTastic (via GSMArena) has reported citing a Weibo post that Samsung Galaxy S8 would come packed with 256GB of internal memory. It is reported that the device would have a 6GB RAM and an AI assistant that can process payments.
There are conflicting reports on the specifications of Galaxy S8. A section of the media has claimed that the device would come in two variants – one with a 5.1-inch curved Super AMOLED display and a 2K screen resolution, and the other with a 5.5-inch 4K panel (806 ppi pixel density).
It is also reported that the next-generation device will come in two variants -- one with a 5.7-inch display and the other with a 6.2-inch screen.
The smartphone is also expected to sport a sleek design and feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, a 12MP S5K2L2 sensor and 13MP sensor main camera made by Sony, and an 8MP front-snapper.
