It goes without saying that the future of Samsung’s mobile division largely depends on the forthcoming Galaxy smartphone. The next Galaxy, which will be the Galaxy S7’s successor, might be named as Galaxy S8. The device is set to go official at the beginning of next year. Many recent reports suggest that the upcoming phone might launch in two display sizes – 5.7-inch and 6.2-inch.
A report says that Samsung is banking upon large screen sizes as that would be more attractive for users who had high hopes for the Note7. The South Korean giant will try to make the S8 as perfect as possible to get rid of the bad reputation set by the Note7’s downfall. Interestingly, this time around Samsung is planning to bring iPhone’s 3D-touch like pressure sensitive displays with the Galaxy S8. A report by the Investor quotes an anonymous Samsung’s supplier saying,“Samsung is mulling to adopt the force touch technology partially from the S8 but the full adoption qill come in one or two years,”
The famous leakster – Evas Blass has tipped that the upcoming Galaxy smartphones might be named as the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. These smartphones might also feature edge to edge displays. Blass also suggests that the S8 will be the first Galaxy lineup to get rid of physical and capacitive buttons for on-screen buttons. Blass said in his tweet,“Samsung Galaxy S8 models are indeed skipping SM-G94* model numbers, will ship as SM-G950 & SM-G955.”
To recall, previous leaks revealed that the Galaxy S8 will feature a 5.5-inch 4K Super AMOLED display (2160×3840 pixels) with a pixel density of 806ppi. The phone was tipped to run Samsung’s in-house Exynos 8895 chipset coupled with 6GB of RAM.
