A fully functional rear notification system

Taking a leaf out of almost all running Apple mobile phones, Samsung has finally decided to introduce rear-end notification to their mobile phone models. This includes a flash and smart glow which are both useful during photography and during “DND” or “meeting” modes where the intermittent flashes notify users of messages or incoming calls. The light of the notification system can be modified to notify different kinds of missed notifications including calls, messages and emails.

A newer display

The most detailed and believable of all rumors is also the most exciting one. Galaxy S8 could be getting a 4K display. This means nothing less than an 830 ppi pixel density. Such a high resolution is quite easily comparable to the Sony Xperia Premium series. But this is not all folks! Such a high quality display automatically paves way for fancies and hopes; Samsung is already prepared to be in the VR league. With Sony and HTC already declaring their trump cards, it is now Samsung’s turn to call. With the rumors of 5.5 inch 4K AMOLED display, the intuitions are getting stronger by the day about a new VR platform which can be coupled with the upcoming Galaxy S8. Samsung planing to use same display in Galaxy Note 7 also.

Better source of power

With the high definition 5.5 inch AMOLED display, this phone will drain power like a Dementor. The only way to cope with this and at the same time keep the user experience intact is to introduce a higher capacity battery with super fast charging. Users are expecting a 4000 mAh battery with wireless charger (as is the norm for all en vogue models) and fast charging options. This will provide around 36 hours of stand-by time and a smooth sailing day with one time charging for all Galaxy S8 users.

Let’s explore the core

The source of all the power and speed will rumoredly be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 3.2 GHz octa-core processor. The RAM will be no less than 6 GB which will be just enough to support the massive 64 GB or 128 GB internal memory. Both the single SIM and dual SIM variants will have memory expansion options. The upcoming S8 will support microSD cards of up to 128 GB size. Another very interesting rumor doing its rounds is the ability of S8 to offer the use of the second micro SIM slot as a microSD card slot. This means, for dual SIM models one gets to option to use two memory cards simultaneously to expand the core memory of their phone.

All in all, Samsung Galaxy S8 will be dictating the Android market in 2017 once it launches in the second quarter. The prices will be in the neighborhood of $900 USD in all the markets. Do not forget to buy best galaxy s8 case for your loved new flagship device.
