Samsung Galaxy S8 : Specifications and Configurations

Updated on September 7, 2016

Samsung is all set to launch its new flagship smart phone, Galaxy S8, which is expected to be in market in starting of the next year. There have been a lot of assumptions about its specifications and configurations.

Samsung already has a reputation for providing high end phones, so we cannot expect anything less from the new Galaxy S8 as well. The reports are out about its cutting edge features. The new Samsung Galaxy S8 will come with a 5.2 inch curved super AMOLED multi-touch screen display with a resolution of 2160 X 3840 pixels. This 4K display will also be compatible with Google Daydream. It will have a dual-lens primary camera of 12 and 13 megapixels. And a secondary camera of 9 megapixels, with primary camera having features like face-detection, auto-focus, optimal image stabilization and dual LED flash and secondary camera might be supporting 4K playback, touch focus and a face and smile detection features.

There are possibilities that this smart phone can come with the latest Android version that is Android Nougat. It may contain the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 830 processor, with 4 gigabyte RAM and internal memory of 32/64 gigabyte expandable up to 128 gigabyte. The rumors also say that it will contain a battery of 3600 mAh. It is also expected that the Galaxy S8 will also come with an iris scanner, like the Galaxy Note 7, through which the user can unlock their phone just by staring at the display.

Another rumor has stated, Samsung will be launching 2 variants for each Galaxy S series. The Edge variant will be the high-end device with more RAM space, better battery capacity and bigger screen size. This new handset is also expected to have the Smart Glow feature with LEDs around the rear camera for notification alerts.

Along with the Galaxy S8, Samsung has confirmed to unveil a new lineup in 2017, with foldable display.
