Samsung is reportedly working on the successor of the Galaxy S7. According to rumors, this device will be unveiled around six months after the Galaxy Note 7 will hit the stores.
Currently, everyone is waiting for August 2, 2016, the date when the South Korean company is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 7. This means that the company has still a good amount of time to prepare for the release of the Galaxy S8 device, which will happen sometime in Q1 of 2017.
The Mobile World Congress will be held next year, between February 27 and March 2 and it will take place in Barcelona. It is good to know that Samsung usually introduces its newest Galaxy S line at this event and in other words, there are big chances that we will see the Galaxy S8 next year, during that period of time.
Some rumors suggest that Samsung has been very busy building the Galaxy S8 and the company is planning to release it exactly six months later after the arrival of the Galaxy Note 7. However, when it comes to the release date, there are reports which suggest that the company will not be able to release the handset before mid-April 2016.
Galaxy S8: Rumored Specifications
According to TrustedReview, the Galaxy S8 will probably come with a 5.1-inch display that will be protected by a Corning Gorilla 5. If rumors will prove to be right, Gorilla Glass 5 will make the device unbreakable when dropped from a height of over five feet on a concrete or rough surface.
The handset will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 processor that will be backed by 8GB of RAM. There are reports which suggest that Samsung will place the speakers at the top and bottom of the smartphone, in order to provide a “3D sound” experience.
There are also reports which say that the handset will feature a dual-camera system which will be able to work separated or together in order to capture high-quality images.
