As soon the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco stopped making rounds in the media (excluding trolls, memes, and GTA 5 mod videos), Samsung got covered up by another trend. This time, however, it’s in favour of the South Korean company. We are talking about Galaxy S8 rumours that have been heating up lately. Long story short, Samsung is said to launch its next flagship — the Galaxy S8, sometime February next year. While no concrete information is around the corner, a popular tipster Evan Blass or as many of us know him as evleaks (thanks to his work on Twitter), has come up with some details about Samsung’s upcoming flagship in the Galaxy S series.
Blass says that Samsung will launch the Galaxy S8 in two variants — one with a 5.7-inch screen and other featuring a bigger 6.2-inch display. If this information is to be believed, Samsung has apparently taken the whole Note 7 debacle seriously and possibly ditching the smaller screen sizes in the favour of a potential Galaxy S + Note series merger. According to Blass, the Galaxy S8 will have model numbers — SM-G950 and SM-G955 for a 5.7-inch and a 6.2-inch variant respectively. Other speculations suggest that Samsung will ditch the flat screen variant and instead stick to curved display for both the variants. They are also expected to have thinner bezels and AI assistant service. Blass also mentioned another model number SM-N950 hinting at the upcoming Note flagship. However, we do not know at this moment what Samsung is up to.
It has been just a month since Samsung executive said that the Galaxy S8 will arrive by the early next year. We are expecting Samsung to introduce it during the MWC (Mobile World Congress) in February 2017. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is also rumoured to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 processor coupled with 6GB of RAM.
