After the big fiasco Samsung had with the Note 7 they are now increasing manufacturing of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge and then turn its resources and attention to next year’s flagship Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.
Samsung has reported that there will be two code names for the Galaxy S8: Dream and Dream2, with the code numbers SM-G950 and SMG955.We don’t think Samsung will change in the area of design,it will still be in the combination of glass and metal but will drop the “edge” branding.
Both mobile phones will feature the popular curved displays found on its extremely popular Galaxy S7 edge. The Galaxy S8 will supposedly rock a 2K 5.1-inch curved Super AMOLED display, while the larger Galaxy S8 Plus will feature a stunning 5.5-inch 4K display, which will have a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 and a pixel density of 806 pixels per inch (ppi).
When it comes to cameras we generally know that Samsung flagship phones comes with impressive cameras. Samsung dropped from 16 megapixels on the Galaxy S6 camera to a mere 12-megapixel sensor for the Galaxy S7. But despite the smaller number of pixels, the Galaxy S7 camera was actually more competent.
As for the Galaxy S8 is concerned it seems more likely that it will come with the same similar camera module to the Galaxy S7, at least until we hear otherwise.
Next year’s mobile chips haven’t been announced yet but it seems possible that the Galaxy S8 and 8 plus will be manufactured with a 10nm processor. Leaked information shows that ARM is working on 10nm reference designs and both Qualcomm and Samsung use ARM.
Chances are the Galaxy S8 will come powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 or the next generation Exynos processor and with a 10nm processor the Galaxy S8 will be more powerful and energy efficient with a low 5W power consumption, as well as a 60-70% improvement to image processing.
Samsung’s Galaxy S8 will probably launch before the next version of android is announced but we’re likely to see Android 7.0 Nougat on board.
For a while now Samsung has maintained the Micro-USB 2.0 port, It seems its about time for Type-C to make an appearance on the Galaxy S8.
As we all know Samsung very well they normally release a brand of the Galaxy S series around February or March and with the upcoming Mobile world congress (MWC) in 2017 our best bet is that Samsung will make the announcement at the event. The company used the same trade show to launch the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge
As for cost of the device we are not so sure on how much the price would be when the Galaxy S6 was launched it cost a whopping £599 and even though the Galaxy S7 is an improvement and a worthy upgrade, it came out at a cheaper price of £569.
Our estimation is that the Galaxy S8 price will be between £550 and £600 for the entry-level model.
