The new flagship device from the South Korean tech giant will be unveiled on March 29th and according to Venture Beat, the first photo of the device has surfaced over the internet. A lot of noticeable changes can be seen when it comes its resemblance to the previous model as the back of the device is a lot similar to it. The main difference lies in the Samsung Galaxy S8’s screen as it is a bit of a radical departure from the design which Samsung has entertained us with.
The physical home button is completely gone as it is now embedded in the bottom side of the screen. A large curved display which runs edge to edge occupies almost the entire screen surface and we can only wait for the much anticipated launch of the device on April the 21st.
Samsung is planning to release the phone with two screen variants and, one of 5.8 and the other packing a whopping 6.2 inches. Following the last year’s Note 7 issue where their top of the line device had a tendency to spontaneously combust, Samsung is going the extra mile to make sure the S8 will have no flaws whatsoever.
Its main traits lies in its huge screen which gives us the impression of an infinity pool is a bit larger than the one found on the previous Note 7 with an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. The design will permit the Samsung Galaxy S8 to maintain the same size as the previous S7 lineup, the only difference being the small bezels and the huge screen.
Hardware wise, the device is rumored to have a 12 megapixel back snapper paired with an 8 megapixel front for great video calling and extraordinary selfies. When it comes to processing power, the flagship device will pack Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 chip or Exynos variant which vary from which place the device is bought.
Its storage space will have 64GB of expandable memory via microSD and will be paired with 4GB of RAM memory. The whole device will be powered by a 3000mAh battery for the 5.8 inch model and a 3500mAh one for the variant with a bigger screen.
Samsung has big plans when it comes to personal assistants as the device is heavily rumored to feature a new one called Bixby, developed by the newly purchased Viv Labs. Bixby is said to be a lot more better than their competitor’s Siri and Google Assistant.
