Samsung will be able to come out of the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco with a superlative Galaxy S8. The launch is very close and all sorts of rumors are doing the round about the forthcoming launch of the super phone from the Korean tech giant.
While Galaxy S series were known to be the flagship from Samsung, but then Note series overtook them in popularity and fineness that is the hallmark of the top Samsung smartphones. Now as Note series has suffered a massive blow due to the battery issue, the Galaxy S series, always among the highest sold Android handsets across the world, is again under focus.
There is no denying that the smartphone giant is looking forward to the Galaxy S8, to pull it out of this quagmire and rebuild consumer trust. Nothing will be lost, except a few billion dollars, if the Galaxy S8 is as good as its last version. The popularity will remain the same and the trust of the smartphone mavens will be restored. If it doesn’t happen, expect a complete meltdown in the brand called Samsung.
There are reasons to believe that Samsung Galaxy S8 release date has been fixed for March 29. The handset will be showcased to the world during a glittering launch in New York City.
Evan Blass of VentureBeat says that Galaxy S8’s overall design appears to be an evolution of what we’ve seen from the GS7 and Note 7, with the biggest change being the relocation of the fingerprint scanner from the front to the back panel, allowing for a larger display with minimal bezels.
Reports suggest that Galaxy S8 will, according to Blass, pack a 5.8-inch display in an “18.5:9” aspect ratio. This will make the handset the most desirable of all smartphone in the market. It is expected that the width of the GS8 and GS8 Plus shouldn’t be far off that of the GS7 and GS7 edge.
There is another major development taking place at Sammy. There is no denying that it will make the handset all the more desirable. “Samsung’s upcoming Samsung flagship phone will use virtual navigation buttons, breaking a design habit that the company has been doggedly sticking to on phones, tablets, and sometimes even smartwatches for years. The big “potatocam” leak from yesterday clearly showed what we’re assuming are the Galaxy S8 and the larger Galaxy S8+, complete with curbed screens and virtual navigation buttons. But Android Police commenter Ash noticed something we didn’t: some of those buttons are moving around” says a report in AndroidPolice.
