Hello Samsung Galaxy lovers, just yesterday was the third day of the Mobile World Congress. In case you don’t know, that happens to be the largest dedicated mobile trade program of the year. Samsung decided not to show their next generation Galaxy S8 in Barcelona in 2017, and since they aren’t, BGR decided that it will. We have continuously stood witness to much leakage aimed at Samsung’s new Android flagships. It’s comparatively as sleek as the new LG G6 appears. As of right now, it is expected that the Galaxy S8 and the S8+ are the rave right now, and high anticipation can be seen around the world at the moment.
Many unauthenticated pictures of the supposed Samsung S8 have been “leaked” on Chinese forums, but it still remains as a mystery or not as to whether they are legit. An official marketing render was updated online by a gadget leaker by the name of Evan Blass. The render displays a magnificent phone that goes well with any description we have previously read in any report over the past few months, even though, it’s still only a render. Luckily for us, BGR has the real deal.
Let’s talk specs, we’re looking at a design that is very similar to last year’s Galaxy S7 edge and even the Note 7. We have the highlighted and curved AMOLED display, along with a glass that stoops down on both sides of the device. The glass also happens to be rounded on the sides so that it fits comfortably in the consumer’s hand. Even though the display is quite large, it actually turned out to be narrower than many expected. That can be chalked up to the seemingly edgeless sides of the screen. The device will be powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset inside the United States, international models however will be powered by a similar Samsung Exynos processor.
All the devices, no matter the model, will get 4Gb of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, as well as the external storage via the microSDXC support. The Samsung S8 has a 12-megapixel Dual Pixel camera on the back, along with the flash and sensor, and even a fingerprint reader. The home button on the front that used to have a house fingerprint reader has actually been removed, which has permitted Samsung to reduce the bezels above and below the screen, which has resulted in a more beautiful design. Samsung is expected to formally reveal their new Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ during a press which is scheduled for March 29th, in New York City. The phones will be expected to be released globally as soon as April 21st.
