The Galaxy Note 7 fiasco has dented the profits and image of Samsung. However, the forthcoming flagship, Samsung Galaxy S8 could make things somewhat better for the company. With an expected launch at MWC 2017, speculations around this flagship have already started doing the rounds online for quite some time now.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is already tipped to house an AI-powered virtual assistant, pressure-sensitive display, larger display variants, etc. Now, according to the latest report by a Dutch website TechStatic, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will sport 6GB RAM and 256GB of inbuilt storage.
According to other rumours, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be powered by the recently announced Snapdragon 835 SoC or in-house Exynos 9 series SoC, depending on the region. It is also expected to sport a dual camera module on the rear side, an optical fingerprint sensor and come in two screen size variants – 5.7-inch and 6.2-inch. It is also rumoured to sport a bezel-less 4K (2160 x 3840 pixels) Super AMOLED display.
As the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge come in a 32GB variant only, enhancing the capability of the Galaxy S8 with 256GB inbuilt storage could be a wise move from Samsung. The latest Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus already have a 256GB storage variant.
However, there is no official word about the specifications of the smartphone yet. So, you are advised to take this report with a nip of salt. Stay tuned for more updates!
