We less than two months away from the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and more and more details pop out each week, allowing us to make a general impression about what we can expect from the South Korean manufacturer’s upcoming flagship.
Considering that last year’s Galaxy S7 was a massive success, Samsung’s doesn’t have that much to improve, but hey, the competition is getting stronger, so they must innovate in order to maintain themselves in the top.
Therefore, let’s talk a bit about the biggest changes the Samsung Galaxy S8 will introduce, compared to its predecessor!
A new design
This is basically a no-brainer, since Samsung did it every year, but this time, they’re going for massive changes! To be more specific, the Galaxy S8 will feature an almost bezel-less display and no physical home buttons, resulting a crazy screen-to-body ration.
As for the fingerprint scanner, it’s going to be placed on the back of the phone, alongside the camera, as revealed by the latest leaked images with some Samsung-branded cases, spotted on Weibo!
Nowadays, battery life is one of the biggest problems, but Samsung is looking forward to fix it. Several sources are claiming that the Galaxy S8 will come with a pretty big 3250 mAh power pack, while the S8 Plus should take it one step further, to 3750 mAh.
On the other side, let’s not forget that these batteries will be packed into smaller bodies, according to Forbes, so they might as well consume more power. But hey, as long as the phone doesn’t burst into flames…
We can’t say that we weren’t expecting this, but it seems that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be significantly efficient, compared to the Galaxy S8! Under the hood, it will have a Snapdragon 835, 30% smaller and consuming with 40% less power than the 820. Also, even though it’s just 27% more powerful, you will definitely notice the improvements!
