Samsung’s Galaxy phones have always been the most anticipated devices for Android lovers and we are just two week away from from the company’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ unveiling. We’ve heard several rumors about these two devices so much so that there really isn’t much mystery left at this point. In fact, a series of recent leaks have already detailed nearly all of the most exciting new features coming to Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ flagship phones. So let’s look at the 10 hottest new features we can expect from Samsung’s new Galaxy S smartphones courtesy of the several reliable leaks we’ve seen on the interwebs.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 phones will have a upgraded design with more bezeless approach. With the Galaxy s6, Samsung introduced a new design to its smartphone with a dual curved display. With the s8 Samsung is tweaking its design and will remove the oblong home button from the front of the phones, and the bezels above and below the screens will be narrowed significantly. These phones are expected to come closer to achieving the all-screen design we’ve been expecting from we’re all been waiting for. Ooh plus yes, the phone will retain the 3.5 audio jack pin and finger print reader at the back of the phone.
Now that we’ve appreciated the designs of the two phones, we can see check out the screen resolution details. We know that the displays will be larger, but there’s more good news: both phones will reportedly pack WQHD+ resolution. That means Samsung is put a whopping 2960 x 2400 pixels into its new flagship smartphones.
Beyond the fact that the screens will take up more of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ faces than any previous-generation models, they’ll also be substantially bigger without increasing the overall footprints of the devices themselves. The smaller Galaxy S8 will have a 5.8-inch screen stuffed into a phone that’s just a bit larger than Apple’s 4.7-inch iPhone 7, and the Galaxy S8+ will cram a massive 6.2-inch display into a phone that’s roughly the same size as the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus.
Curved display on both models
Finally, when it comes to the screen details, Samsung’s new Super AMOLED displays — they’ll both be curved this time around. With the rounded front and back on Samsung phones like the Galaxy Note 7 and Galaxy S7 edge. Unlike last year where Samsung included a flat display panel in the smaller Galaxy S7 model. This time round, that will no longer be the case.
When it comes to the internals, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will be the first new smartphones from a big-name vendor to be powered by next-generation 10nm processors. The international S8 models will be powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 chipset and elsewhere, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 will run the show. With these new processors, we can expect more power and better efficiency than we’ve ever seen in any Samsung smartphone to date.
In 2016, Samsung’s Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge and Galaxy Note 7 all shared the same rear camera, and it was one of the best cameras that has ever appeared on a smartphone along side Google’s Pixel and the iPhone 7s Plus. This year’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are expected to include even better 12-megapixel Dual Pixel rear cameras, and the front-facing 8-megapixel cameras are rumored to offer improved low-light performance as well.
The troubled Galaxy Note 7, featured an Iris scanner, and this is yet another very cool feature coming that will grace the Galaxy S8 lineup. The scanner will allow Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ users to unlock their phones with a quick eye scan. The Iris scanner is expected to be an improvement from the Note 7’s scanner.
Samsung’s new Galaxy phones will include a nifty new feature that allows users to plug them into a dock in order to power a new desktop experience. When connected to a monitor, users will be able to run Android apps on the big screen and multitask to their heart’s content.
Better battery life
The new hardware will be powered by bigger batteries (reports say 3,000 mAh in the Galaxy S8 and 3,500 mAh in the S8+) as well as faster charging from Samsung’s new flagship phones, in addition to better efficiency that the new 10nm processors will provide.
Last but most certainly not least, the new Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will reportedly include a special new mode that cranks up the juice and delivers maximum sustained performance when the user wants more power at his or her fingertips. We can’t wait to try out this feature.
There you have it, the 10 most anticipated features of the next Galaxy flagship phones.
