All eyes are on Samsung's upcoming flagship Galaxy S8 after the disappointing debacle of the Galaxy Note 7, as the company will expect it to boost its business. The device is expected to come with several feature upgrades over its predecessor, the Galaxy S7, but one that may attract everyone is its processor.

The South Korean technology giant is expected to release the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 edge in April. The company has the tradition of unveiling its Galaxy S handsets at the Mobile World Congress (MWC), but reports have claimed that the upcoming flagship could be delayed because of the company's plan to incorporate artificial intelligence (AI) assistant service.

Qualcomm has confirmed that it is working on its next processor - the Snapdragon 835 – which is expected to be powerful, though more details will come out at the CES 2017 event in January. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 edge could become the powerful Android smartphone as Qualcomm is working with Samsung to manufacture the Snapdragon 835.

Samsung hasn't confirmed if the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 edge will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor but it is likely to come with the 10 nanometre chip.

The device will come with model numbers SM-G950 and SM-G955, according to leakster Evan Blass aka @evleaks. It may surprise many as the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge have model numbers SM-G920 and G925 respectively, and its successors came with model numbers SM-G930 and SM-G935.

According to reports that have appeared so far, the Galaxy S8 will come in two variants -- one with a 5.7-inch display and the other with a 6.2-inch screen. There were also conflicting reports claiming that the device would be seen with a 5.1-inch curved Super AMOLED display and a 2K screen resolution variant, and a 5.5-inch 4K panel (806 ppi pixel density) model.

The flagship device is expected to house a 12MP S5K2L2 sensor and 13MP sensor made by Sony in the rear, and an 8MP front-snapper.
