Citing sources, wccftech reports that the Galaxy S8 is likely to flaunt a 4K UHD (ultra high-definition) super AMOLED display running at a resolution of 2160×3840 pixels. And while a screen like that is likely to be power hungry, Samsung is likely to pack a larger capacity battery too. Samsung may not be the first smartphone manufacturer to include a 4K display, but the year 2017 could make UHD displays more mainstream on smartphones. The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium is one the first smartphones to come with a 4K display. Also Read - Samsung Galaxy M21 2021 vs Redmi Note 10: Which is better under Rs 15,000?
Rumors also claim that the Galaxy S8 would feature a dual-camera setup at the back, which is likely to be home grown and engineered by SEMCO (Samsung Motors). Samsung s upcoming Galaxy Note 7 and Apple s iPhone 7 Plus are also rumored to sport a dual camera setup at the back.
On the hardware front, the Galaxy S8 could be powered by Qualcomm s Snapdragon 830 SoC produced using 10nm FinFET fabrication process, PhoneArena reports. With the Galaxy Note 7 expected to embrace the USB Type-C connectivity port, the same may also be carried forward to the Galaxy S8 too. While other details are scarce at the moment, we expect more leaks to pour in the coming months.
