The more we hear about the Samsung Galaxy S8, the more impressed we are as it certainly looks like it will be the Android smartphone to beat when it is released next year.
The S8 will need to play an important role for Samsung after the disastrous Galaxy Note 7 so, if we are to believe Chinese social network site Weibo, the S8 will be something spectacular.
The device which is due to be revealed early next year is a big step up from the Galaxy S7.
The standard model will come with 256GB of internal storage, a whopping 6GB of RAM and according to reports; it will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor.
Other reports have suggested that the device will also feature an ‘ultrasonic’ fingerprint sensor – a sensor that could detect your fingerprint through glass which would mean that Samsung could remove the traditional home button.
The screen is expected to be 5.7 inches in size, a big increase from the 5.1 inch screen on the S7 with the larger Galaxy S8 Plus having a 6.2 inch.
The 3.5mm headphone jack is also expected to be dumped in a similar manner to with the iPhone 7.
Meanwhile, new reports of Korea say that Samsung will include a never before seen feature to one of the cameras on the Galaxy S8.
ET News reports that Samsung will help revolutionize the selfie, by including a first of its kind front facing camera complete with autofocus.
The report says the camera will include an “AF actuator”, which will detect how close you are and adjust its focus accordingly.
As with many of the latest smartphones and gadgets, Samsung are expected to come up with their own super-smart AI voice assistants with their own version being called Viv.
This is in direct competition to Apple and Google who already have assistants on their devices.
A smart assistant that is fully integrated into Samsung’s array of other products, such as its Gear S smartwatches, Galaxy smartphones and smart TVs – would help the South Korean compete against the likes of Google’s Assistant, Apple’s Siri and Amazon’s Alexa.
