The first time people got curious about the Galaxy S8 was right after Galaxy S7 launched. Such is the popularity of the Galaxy S series from Samsung, and we’ve gotten used to it by now. Last year Samsung faces a major drawback in profits due to the Galaxy Note 7 incident, where the device would explode. Even though it’s a different phone series, Samsung is looking to bring out the absolute best in Samsung Galaxy S8 so that the device can restore the brand’s namesake.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Release Date
Just to make it clear, there’s no official information about when the Galaxy S8 will be available for purchase. That doesn’t mean that we’re completely in the dark however. There are many predictions about when this would happen, but believable sources pinpoint the release date in April. To be more specific, The Investor (a South Korean publication) says that we’ll see a first S8 wave of 60 million units coming our way in April. This might seem a little out of the blue, but The Investor says they have a source which wishes to remain unknown, so maybe there’s an inside source spilling the beans.
Samsung Galaxy S8 specifications
The Samsung flagships always put a frown on their competitor’s faces, as both hardware and features are extremely good for each release’s current market standards. Let’s take a look at what the S8 is believed to contain:
- A dual-edge, quad HD Super AMOLED display will light up the front panel;
- Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 and Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 will swap turns roaring under the S8’s hood;
- The RAM capacity will probably range between 6 and 8 GB, which is borderline overkill for the current market;
- Harman Kardon speakers and a dual camera setup will greatly enhance the multi-media capabilities of the device.
It’s going to be a little while longer before we have more palpable information, but so far the Samsung Galaxy S8 looks very promising. Sure, that’s being said about every Samsung flagship but for good reason. These devices are obviously made to be worth their price tag. Speaking about price tags, you should prepare yourself if you’re considering getting an S8. The speculated starting price is $850, so specs aren’t the only things ramping up for this new Galaxy S model.
