Earlier this week Samsung confirmed the Galaxy S8 launch for early next year. Now more information about some features of the next flagship have been revealed by Samsung’s executive.
Samsung’s Vice Chariman Lee Jae-yong told the Wall Street Journal the Galaxy S8 will sport a “slick design” and “improved camera”. The phone will also feature an enhanced artificial intelligence which could be a result of its recent acquisition of Viv Labs, co-founders of Siri. Another rumor earlier this week stated that the Galaxy S8 will be the first smartphone to feature optical fingerprint recognition technology so that the fingerprint sensor could be embedded inside the display itself instead of placing it under the home button.
As per previous rumors the Samsung Galaxy S8 is rumored to pack a 5.5-inch 4K display, suitable for VR, powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 or Samsung Exynos 8895 10nm SoCs and pack 6GB of RAM. Rumors also say that Samsung will expand the curved display to the top and bottom edges of the phone for a full-screen curved look.
Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in February and launch it in March.
