Samsung is undoubtedly the largest smartphone manufacturing company which has given us a variety of smartphones available in every price range and for every user. Samsung is the biggest competitor of Apple iPhone, and that’s the reason it has become a trend to release their trademark “S” series smartphone every year and Samsung Galaxy S8 is the next big thing which will change the game of premium smartphones category.
This year Samsung launched the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge which was hit undoubtedly. Samsung has the trend to release two variant of the “S” series smartphones, i.e., one normal looking and another with edge design. This trend seems to continue in Galaxy S8 also, and the concept is likely to be the same, but the specifications and features are going to advance.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Edge Concept and Design:
As we told earlier, Galaxy S8 may continue to have two different designs, one normal looking and another with curved edges. The Edge version of the phone looks absolutely stunning and beautiful. The smart edge panel and icons make it worth buying and can grab attention of any buyer.
In the case of display, according to some sources, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Edge going have a 4K UHD screen. But first of all, we need to see how big is going to be the display of Samsung Galaxy S8 Edge. From Galaxy S5, they have entered in the 5-inch display segment. If we look at their display trend you can see, S5 has a 5.1-inch screen and after that, the two variants of Samsung Galaxy S6 has 5.1-inch screen. This year we have witnessed 5.1 inch S7 and the 5.5 inch Galaxy Edge smartphone which has surprised every Samsung fans.
Now what to expect in S8? Will it be a 5.1 inch and 5.5 inches once again or bigger than that? Well, this mystery is still to unvieled, and we will update this article if we get new update regarding this. In our opinion, samsung galaxy s8 edge display is going to continue the trend, and display size is expected to be the same like the earlier one. The only change we could expect is 4K display from the full HD display.
After the Samsung’s biggest competitor iPhone following the similar display size trend. But the major difference in screen size can be seen because of the arrival of VR headsets and their growing trends in the market. Samsung should keep in mind the growing popularity of VR headsets and this may be the key marketing strategy for them. With UHD screen, the VR experience would become 10x better than any other competitor.
Power and performance:
Samsung Galaxy S7 uses the Snapdragon 830 and Exynos 8890 chips and next year Galaxy S8 is supposed to use the same Qualcomm chips and their very own chips again. Qualcomm has recently announced their 821 chip set, an upgrade of 820 chip set. But there are very little chances of 821 would be the next chip set for the S8 and S8 Edge. The reason behind this nothing but the announcement of 830 chipset which is likely to be the part of S8 handset but yet to be confirmed. According to some sources, the 830 chipset would be 10x faster than the 820 chip set. If Samsung is likely to use 4K display then they would need it.
Rumors are their about Galaxy S8 can also come with Snapdragon X16 which will make the flagship smartphone faster than ever. Snapdragon X16 has the capacity to download in 1GBPS speed which will make 4K movies or videos download faster using the device.
We can finally see the USB-C support in Galaxy S8 mobile phone next year. Previously it was rumored to have a support in Galaxy S7 itself which didn’t happen. USB-C is the next version of Micro USB which is used in majority of the smartphones nowadays. If you are Apple Macbook, then you can find this which have a reversible connection. USB-C can easily supply up to 100W power which is much more better than USB 2.0 ports.
But one thing you should notice that nowadays most of the VR headsets supports the USB 2.0 and not USB-C. So, we can also expect the next generation VR headsets with USB-C support.
Samsung is always popular for camera and photography performance in their S series smartphones. So what we can expect from Samsung Galaxy S8 Camera is another great phone which may also feature DSLR quality camera. In S7, we have seen a stunning 12-megapixel camera, and we can expect 16-20 megapixel camera with plenty of functions and tweaks like faster focus.
If you believe in rumors then, there are rumors which are saying the Galaxy S8 can feature dual camera which would be interesting to see. Previously we have the drop in megapixel from Galaxy S6’s 16 megapixels to 12 megapixels in Galaxy S7, but the picture quality was more better than the 16 megapixel. Now Samsung is preparing something big where every megapixel will be counted. Similarly, we can see a better camera for selfies on the front.
With the arrival of 4K display the battery consumption will also go high and what you can expect a bigger and powerful battery in Samsung Galaxy S8. The Galaxy S Edge variant has the trend to use the bigger and powerful batteries comparing to the normal version of the smartphone. In Samsung Galaxy S6 we have seen 2550 mAh battery and on the S6 Edge we have seen a 2600 mAh battery, similarly in the Galaxy S7 we have seen 3000 mAh battery and the S7 edge version was powered by a 3600 mAh battery. So, you can see the number is growing bigger.
Please keep in mind that the old Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge used the QHD display and the Galaxy S8 and S8 edge going to have a 4K display if we believe in the rumors, which means 2X battery drainage. So, according to our expectations, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 EDGE might come with a 4000 mA battery-4500 mAh battery.
If we look at the trend of Samsung, from past few years, they have a tendency to release Galaxy S series smartphones in the first quarter of the year. So, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Edge is expected to release in March 2017.
