Today VentureBeat’s Evan Blass updated us with a wealth of information about the Samsung Galaxy S8, publishing a slew of leaked details and a photo of the upcoming S8 smartphones, which are likely to be the normal S8 and the S8 Edge.
You can see that photo above.
But that was not all, he also revealed that the devices will feature something that Samsung is reportedly calling an “infinity display”, with a nearly bexel-less design. He said that they will remove the traditional navigation in favour of a large QHD Super AMOLED display that is 5.8/6.2 inches and curves on both edges.
They will also feature an aspect ratio of 18.5:9.
Blass reported that the phones will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or Samsung Exynos processor, depending on your region, but both will be made using the 10-nanometer fabrication process and will be 11 percent faster than the Galaxy S7 according to reports. To top that off, they also feature 4GB of RAM, a minimum of 64GB of storage, and a 256GB-capable microSD slot.
The 5.8-inch model will feature a 3,000mAh battery and the 6.2-inch version will feature a 3,500mAh.
Both will have a USB-C charging port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, stereo speakers, a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera with Iris-scanning.
They also moved the fingerprint sensor to the back in the removal of the navigation buttons, whilst adding pressure-sensitive functionality to the lower part of the display. To finish all of that off, the S8 will run on Android Nougat with Samsung’s personal assistant named Bixby.
According to reports, Samsung will debut these smartphones in New York City on March 29th, the S8 5.8-inch model will reportedly be priced at €799 and the 6.2 inch model will reportedly be priced at €899.
They are both said to be set for an April 21st release date.
Of course, we will let you know more when we do.
