Samsung has not presented any smartphone at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where it has been present but only to present its new Galaxy Tab 3. The company already announced that it would organize a separate event to announce the new S8 on March 29. And images of the new Samsung phone have already been leaked.
It has been the popular journalist Evan Blass who has published through Twitter account the image of who is called to be the new flagship of the company and put an end to the ill-fated Note 7 that has done so much damage to the company.
The image shows a new design whose curved display reminds the Edge. Also, like the LG G6, it is very large, occupying almost the entire front so it can also be 18:9. The Samsung smartphone lacks a physical front button, as it is expected to also do iPhone in September and has a fourth button rumored to have been designed for Bixby, Samsung’s first smart assistant to debut with the S8.
However, ‘BGR’ has indeed obtained the photos of a current Samsung Galaxy S8. The popular portal has revealed how the South Korean firm will be new and say that it will have a larger version, as is usual. Therefore, the Galaxy S8 + would have a Super AMOLED Quad HD screen of 6.2 inches, unlike the 5.8 of the S8. The battery would also have a greater capacity and, otherwise, ‘the two phones are expected to be identical’.
With respect to the screen, the glass of the two models ‘is also rounded at the sides so that the phones sit comfortably in the hand of the user’. “BGR” ensures that both S8 and S8 +, despite their larger size, “are narrower than expected thanks to a design with almost no borders on both sides of the screen.
The next Samsung Galaxy S8 will be equipped with a new processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 in the United States, while international models, such as the one in the photo, will carry a similar Samsung Exynos. According to ‘BGR’, all models will have 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage, as well as support for microSDXC. “As with rival phones, the Galaxy S8 supports microSD cards up to 2TB in size,” they say.
It carries a double rear camera of 12 Mpx next to the sensors and flash, as well as a scanner of fingerprints.
“The home button on the front of the phone that was used to house the fingerprint reader has been removed, allowing Samsung to substantially reduce the bezels above and below the screen. The result is a wonderfully elegant design, “says BGR.
Above the screen is the 8 Mpx front camera and the popular iris scanner that Samsung introduced for the first time in the “explosive” Galaxy Note 7. “The power and volume buttons are placed on one side, while the Another is believed to be for Bixby. At the bottom of the phone is a speaker, USB-C port and 3.5 mm headphone jack. Apple eliminated the jack port on the iPhone 7 and, so far, it had been rumored that Samsung would do the same. But it seems that will not be so. BGR also ensures that the new Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 + will be resistant to water and dust.
