Samsung Galaxy S8 seems to be getting more and more concepts, as it approaches its rumored launch period. The device also got rendered today, courtesy of Edesign Buzz (2016laborday.com). The phone seems to have an interesting back side texture.
Once again we get a Galaxy S8 here that opts for a Quad HD screen, although its maker mentions a potential 4K approach, just like the one from a few days ago. AMOLED remains the obvious choice of panel and the diagonal is said to be at around 5.1 inches. That makes the device a rare bird, since quite a few companies have gone up to 5.3 or 5.5 inch diagonals for flagships.
Android 7.1 on top of TouchWiz is the software of choice here, but in a more trimmed down version. Galaxy S7 already had a great camera, but it didn’t capture as many details as people wanted. The follow up may bring a higher res and new technologies, maybe even ones inspired by Apple’s Quad LED approach. Improved aperture may be here, as well as a better selfie cam.
A new Exynos 8895 CPU is also rumored, plus 4 or maybe 6 GB of RAM, as well as a Snapdragon 821 CPU version. One thing’s for sure: the battery problems won’t get repeated again and we’ll get a new type of battery. CES 2017 is speculated as the launch date. An USB Type C port and removed audio jack are almost dead certain. I somehow feel that this Galaxy S8 concept is made of metal, thus ditching the glass panel at the back.
Is it worth it?
