The Note 7 was awaited with great interest and once it was available for purchase, many fans rushed to buy it, even if it has a high price of $850. But in short time, problems started appearing and owners have reported that their devices exploded while charging. The nightmare began for Samsung and the South Korean company has advised users to turn off their devices, because it’s too dangerous. Until this problem will be solved, Samsung could push forward the release of the next gen Galaxy S8 flagship.

While some rumors suggest that the Galaxy S8 will be released in early 2017, other reports claim that the flagship could come by the end of 2016. A source has revealed that the company is working on two S8 variations, and their model numbers are SM-G950 and SM-G955. The former has a flat screen, while the other has a dual-edge screen like the Galaxy Note 7, but maybe they won’t have the same size.

The current Galaxy S7 is SM-G930, which means that its successor will be SM-G940, but because the number 4 is associated with bad luck in South Korea and Chine, it seems that the device will be codenamed Dream, while the Edge variant will be Dream2.

The rumored specs of the Galaxy S8 include a 5.2-inch screen with a resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels, a Snapdragon Qualcomm octa-core 3.2 GHz processor backed by 6GB of RAM, a non-removable battery of 4200 mAh, 64 and 128 GB of internal memory, which will be expandable with dual micro SD cards, a primary camera of 30MP with Optical image stabilization, geo tagging, facial recognition and HDR, and a secondary camera of 9MP. The S8 could come with the same glass and metal design and in color options of black, blue, gold and white. It will support wireless charging, rapid charging, will have a retina eye scanner and a mini projector.
