Electronics major Samsung confirmed that it is working on a probable Galaxy S8 launch for early next year. Now, news of features attributed to the upcoming handset has surfaced online. According to a report on Wall Street Journal, Samsung's Vice Chariman Lee Jae-yong said, that Galaxy S8 will come with a "slick design" and an "improved camera". The smartphone will also feature an improved artificial intelligence which could be a result of its recent acquisition of Viv Labs, co-founders of Siri - Apple's version of artificial intelligence.
Earlier this week, a report by Sammobile suggested that Samsung is working on developing the firmware for Galaxy S8. It is currently being developed keeping markets, such as China, France, Germany, Italy, Korea, Poland, the United Kingdom, and the United States in mind. Once a stable build is developed for the Galaxy S8, Samsung will start working on the UI for additional countries, the report added. Galaxy S8 might not be introduced early as per recent 'rumours'. The company had started working on the firmware for Galaxy S7 around this time last year and launched the smartphone in February. In that stead, it has scheduled an event for February 26, 2017 ahead of the MWC conference in Barcelona.
According to these rumours, the Galaxy S8 would come in two variants based on screen size and resolution. While one could feature a 5.1-inch QHD resolution display, the other might sport a 5.5-inch 4K resolution Super Amoled display. Both are expected to run Qualcomm's Snapdragon 830 processor for few markets, and the Exynos 8895 CPU in others. The 5.5-inch 4K resolution display variant is additionally expected to feature a dual rear camera setup and a new artificial intelligence to replace Samsung S Voice. Preliminary reports suggest that Galaxy S8 would pack a combination of 12MP and 13MP rear sensors. While the 12MP S5K2L2 sensor is expected to be the same as in the current model, the 13MP sensor might be made by Sony. Similar to other handsets, the dual-rear camera will give users better control over 'depth of field' in images. The front-facing selfie camera is also expected to be upgraded to an 8MP from the present 5MP in the Galaxy S7. There will also be an iris-scanner which made its debut on the Galaxy Note 7.
