Competition in the smartphone world is becoming fiercer by the day; iPhone is leading and it is in its own class – I guess everybody wants that class.
But when we talk about the Android world, Samsung is the boss; it has made its mark in the industry by designing a lot of fantastic phones – the recently released Samsung S7 series is a perfect example.
Other android phone manufacturers are trying to catch up. However, I doubt this possibility of catching up, because rumours about galaxy S8 shows Samsung is not willing to give up this leadership role.
The Rumoured Specifications
Processor: Samsung phones are known to run on Exynos and Snapdragon processors; therefore, speculations have it that the Galaxy S8 would run on either Exynos 9000 or Snapdragon 830.
RAM: This phone is expected to have at least 6GB RAM but don’t be surprise if it eventually come with a monster 8GB RAM.
Internal Storage: Between 64 – 256GB.
OS: Of course, it will be Android Nougat.
Screen Display: Samsung thinks 1080 and 720pixel video resolution is becoming obsolete, so expect 4K (4000) pixel display quality. I guess you will need a third eye to appreciate this display quality
This 4K resolution plus Android Nougat OS will make the phone capable of Virtual Reality (VR) display. Oh! what is the hell is a VR?
A Virtual Reality (VR) is a computer simulation technology that makes users interact with a computer generated environment by producing a sensation of being physically present in this generated environment. VR is now widely used in developing simulation games.
Battery: 4000mAh is expected.
Other Features include: Gorilla Glass 5, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 5.0, wireless charging.
Furthermore, one interesting feature expected on the phone is a mini flash projector which can be used to project images; but a major concern is its impact on the phone’s battery.
Release Date: The phone is expected to be released by April 2017 after the World Mobile Congress.
Price: The price is suggested to be about $850 USD
Consequently, this phone will be a killer when finally released; but in the meantime, Galaxy S7 rocks and you get value for your money if you can afford one.
