A fresh, bezel-less design:
The Galaxy S8 will come in two sizes, a larger 5.5” model and a 5.1” model. We are unsure about this though.
The back of the phone will look fairly similar to the Galaxy S7 and Note 7. There will likely be no dual-camera setup. The fingerprint scanner will be placed at the back right beside the cameras which is a weird position, but the idea is to push users to use Samsung’s iris scanning technology to unlock their phone.
Display and Internals:
As for the batteries, the larger Galaxy S8 model is suggested to have a 3500 mAh battery and the smaller model to have a 3000 mAh battery. The phone should have 4 GB or 6 GB of RAM.
The headphone jack will likely stay, although some rumours suggest otherwise. The microSD card slot should also stay.
It is odd that Samsung isn’t entering the dual-camera space yet. Nonetheless, the S8 camera will be worth looking forward too.
We can expect the Galaxy S8 to launch on March 29, and sell in stores starting April 21. It should be priced about the same as the Galaxy S7, i.e. starting at $799 for the base model.
