Few months back,  Samsung confirmed the Galaxy S8 launch for early next year. A company executive also said that Galaxy S8 will sport a “slick design” and “improved camera”.

According to earlier rumors, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will pack a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, will be suitable for VR, powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 or Samsung Exynos 8895 10nm SoCs and pack 6GB RAM. It is rumored to feature a 12MP rear camera and a 8MP auto focus front-facing camera. It might also get rid of home button and embed the fingerprint sensor into the display. There might also be a Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus with a 6.2-inch bezel less display.

Samsung is aiming to ship 60 million units for the Galaxy S8 this year, according to a latest report. We will have to wait for Samsung to official release a teaser for the MWC 2017 to know if we will see the Galaxy S8 next month.
