Samsung decided not to present its future mobile star during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this year, but that does not mean that its Galaxy S8 is not on its way. On March 29, the South Korean company will present the Samsung smartphone, but during the last weeks have filtered much of its specifications. The last one, it arrives today in video form.
The website ‘Slashleaks’ has obtained a video that allows us to see up close how will be the expected new ‘smartphone’ Samsung. Recorded by a Weibo user, it shows the Galaxy S8 along with its older brother, the S8+. Although the quality of the images is not perfect, they do allow you to confirm some of the filtered specifications, such as ‘lanky’ condition and what looks like an iris scanner. Also the ‘jack’ input for the headphones.
The video also confirms that the fingerprint reader moves to the back, as Samsung has sacrificed the Home button – as probably will also Apple with its iPhone 8.
The future Galaxy S8 + will have a 6.2-inch screen, huge compared to the current 5.5 inches of the S7 Edge. Even so, the mobile has hardly any frame, so the total size does not increase too much.
Other interesting features of the S8 + include a dual 12 megapixel camera (8MP front), 4GB RAM, 64GB base storage (with possibility to expand via microSD), resistance to water and dust (nothing changes here, IP68 certification ) And iris reader that would also include the smaller model, the Galaxy S8.
As for the ‘normal’ S8, it is expected to have a screen of 5.7 inches and the same: 12 megapixel camera, 64GB of base storage and 4GB of RAM. It would be the first to use the new Samsung chip, the Snapdragon 835.
