In recent weeks we have not only accumulate rumors about a hypothetical Samsung Galaxy S8 that, however, we know nothing nothing for certain. In fact, we don’t even know if Samsung will keep the Galaxy S range as such, or if waiting as much as he is expected of the future Korean flagship, will receive new name.
It is likely to do see a Galaxy S8 raise the curtain on an event Unpacked many carried at the end of March or early April, but although Samsung will jump with their terminal most important of 2017 Mobile World Congress, industry sources have pointed to in Barcelona they teach Yes prototypes of the device before the official announcement.
Samsung still has not said ‘this mouth is mine’ despite the countless rumors about the Galaxy S8, but what if has been made clear is that this will not be a smartphone in the catalogue of the Korean giant
For the time being will have to continue waiting, as Samsung has not said a word about that is probably the most important device in its history. Even after the absolute failure of the Galaxy Note 7.
What we do know is that the Korean giant is optimistic with the Galaxy S8, because according to The Investor Samsung already would have communicated its main suppliers launch date, on April 18, date which coincides also with rumors. In addition, spoken of orders to manufacture some 60 million units the Smartphone, well above the approximately 45 million units from the previous Galaxy S.
There is still time, but with so much data perhaps is time to collect what we expect from the Samsung Galaxy S8 and what we would like to see on the smartphone that it should return credibility to the Korean giant.
1 evolving a design that works
With the debate on the audio-jack of today thanks to the HTC U turn, the truth is that many have toned that saying that should not fix what is not broken and the headphone jack has still travel.
As well, the same can be applied to the successful design lines that Samsung released in 2015 with the Galaxy S6 and S7 Galaxy took one step further for the enjoyment of users. If we make memory, any criticism received by the S6 as a lack of the microSD slot or a battery with little capacity was remedied in the S7, although There are still things to fix as the c USB-type connector He suffers the up to now flagship of Samsung.
That makes us think that this design still has a little more travel, although expected a more radical shift part of the Korean giant to return us the political football ‘WoW effect’.
Thus, we hope premium materials and a construction that optimize to the maximum the size S8 regarding its diagonal screen Galaxy, something like an approach to Mix my Xiaomi to so much expectation has risen.
To date, all leaks revolve around the design that we leave then, although we don’t like too and it seems that there could be more surprises:
2. screen without frames, again in two sizes… and flat!
It is obvious that this smartphone which make the most of their size would like, and obviously also not everyone wants a phablet although most of which prove not alight after the large format.
Thus, one of the keys is the size of each of the expected models of Galaxy S8, that rumored will be at 5.7 and 6.2 inches screen While the final size of the device too rise with respect to the dimensions of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. With this, it would be confirmed that our desire to use front will be a reality.
However, there are more surprises, because thanks to a video recently released by Samsung and that we leave then, many media have pointed to the S8 Galaxy will return to having a flat, not curved panel, looking for improved ergonomics battered of the models ‘edge’ in certain situations.
Flat panel with improved SuperAMOLED technology, almost without bevels, diagonals large content sizes, function always on display, everything that we hear from the screen of the future Galaxy S8 convinces us.
3 will an ‘edge’ model with curved screen there be then?
Good question, since the filtered images say Yes and the latest information to say no, and we sincerely would surprise us much that Samsung is happily charging to his striking design ‘dual edge’.
That Yes, also we missed in its day a Samsung back and removable battery, and have already been worse.
It is true that the S7 Galaxy edge are uncomfortable in certain applications, it is easy to touch parts of the screen without wanting to, but it is also true that the design is icon. Does Samsung to lose it? As to us We’d like to make the user can choose which, and if a model with curved panel has a place why not have it on the market.
4. the fingerprint reader and the goodbye to a classic
Much talked about the front use, and seems that the optimization of the size includes a bottom frame without the classic HOME button from Samsung, entering in the latest devices even the fingerprint reader.
Is not something that we like, but It seems that the navigation keypad could go to software leaving the bottom frame smaller but more useless, although most are running at a fingerprint reader under the front glass or in the back.
It is not a chimera, Synaptics has sensors of this type in the market, and Samsung was also working with this technology to develop your own components. Say will Samsung goodbye to a classic? Everything seems to indicate that, and we hope that that will not entail a completely untapped bottom frame.
5. dual camera and S-Pen, fantasy or reality?
With 7 iPhone and iPhone 7 Plus came confirmation that the double main Chamber could become a ‘must have’ in the short term, and the truth is that the market follows the trend.
If the rumors are true, the Galaxy S8 It would also have a set of two primary sensors resolution unknown, although we do not know if this dual camera would be exclusive of the larger model as in the case of the iPhone 7 Plus.
If it comes to improve, obvious that the dual camera will like us, but we also know that this will increase the final price by an amount that not everyone will want to pay.
In addition, talking about that with the fall of the Galaxy Note 7 Korean manufacturer will try to implement the functionality of its famous S-Pen stylus in the Galaxy S range for the first time, and here we cannot but show us excited.
The S-Pen is the star of productivity according to Samsung, and the truth is that their technology, developed by Wacom, along with software, offers many more possibilities to a smartphone that looks like.
6. virtual reality or augmented reality, the future…
There is no doubt that virtual reality and augmented reality have come to stay, and even though Google has already taken has Project Tango and Daydream VR to underpin commitment of Android to the new realities of the future.
However, Samsung was already here and their United Gear VR glasses to the Platform for virtual reality developed together with Oculus They seem the surebets Korean giant in this aspect.
Does it have the Galaxy S8 support to Daydream and Tango? Well, first thing is feasible but it would be strange to see two VR platforms compete with each other in a same terminal, but see Project Tango at the next terminal Samsung star is practically ruled out given the set of hardware to implement.
What if We’d like to see would be the jump to resolution 4 K UHDV, that would certainly enhance the experience of use of VR goggles eliminating excessive pixelation. To integrate such matrix by optimizing the performance you might choose to scale the software to smaller resolutions and move only the 4 K resolution actually virtual or multimedia galleries, something that Sony already used in your day with Xperia Z5 Premium.
7. full connectivity, including the audio-jack
Because Yes, not us have resisted, open a section to claim that a Samsung Galaxy S8’d with connectivity full included the audio-jack.
We refer to complete connectivity starting for LTE, and why not, a dual SIM which curiously we only see on cheaper smartphones. We continue along the usual WiFi, Bluetooth, aGPS and NFC, and stopped in the FM radio that surely we will not see, and an IR port that neither expected.
Obviously, yes we will see reversible c-type USB connector, remains to be seen whether with USB technology v3.1 or lower, but we hope that it is missing the USB On-The-Go because 4 K content takes a lot of space.
8. artificial intelligence and Assistant Bixby
If you’ve been plugged in the last days already you will know the intentions of Andy Rubin, the creator of Android, which wants to return to the industry of smartphones with a new company called ‘Essential’ to bet strong on artificial intelligence to provide a new experience of mobile devices.
Samsung has not been still and Bixby will be vocal Assistant based on AI that will debut with the Galaxy S8, mitigating the fact that on the one hand Google has not released Assistant for all and in all languages, and providing direction on the other side to the purchase of Viv.
9. How will the Galaxy S8 also your PC?
The last of the keys is one of eternal promises of market, because together with the flexible mobile we have spent years listening to a siren around the Smartphones which also become your desktop PC.
ASUS tried it with your Transformer concepts, Microsoft has taken one step further with Continuum, and Samsung seems to be working on a desktop experience extend the use of your smartphone also as personal computer.
It is called “Samsung Desktop Experience” and at the moment is only a promising characteristics filtered, so you will have to wait to see if 2017 is the year in which your smartphone becomes your PC. Power for this surely won’t miss you.
As you can see, there are many expectations around a terminal of that at the moment we don’t have any official detail, but it is this Samsung Galaxy S8 won’t be a Samsung Galaxy smartphone more, but one that comes to back to Samsung the credibility of the market.
