Samsung made a terrible mistake this year with the Galaxy Note 7, so everyone expects the tech giant to come up with something truly amazing for the Samsung Galaxy S8 next year. According to the latest leaks that surfaced on Weibo, the company is planning on making up for the exploding batteries. The Galaxy S8 is rumored to be a powerhouse so far. According to the rumors, it will include 6GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. And we are not speaking of the highest-end version in this case. This seems to be the basic standard for the upcoming devices.
In this case, some might wonder whether the company will keep the microSD card slot or not. Even though it might go for the possibility of additional storage, let’s face it, it won’t be necessary. 256GB is more than enough storage for a smartphone. Not long ago, it was enough for computers, so it’s safe to say that it’s also enough for a handset. Naturally, the huge storage and memory won’t be the Samsung Galaxy S8’s only strong point. It seems that the device will sport Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor, which is the fastest on the market right now. Of course, we might see a variant of the handset sporting the Exynos processor also, but this is still uncertain.
What seems to be certain is that Samsung will unveil the new handsets at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona. The event will take place in February, so fans shouldn’t have to wait too long before seeing the S8 become reality. According to rumors, this time around we will get a Samsung galaxy S8 and a Galaxy S8 Plus, instead of the S8 Edge we were all waiting for. However, it also seems that both versions will have the curved screen we only got on the Edge variant before, so this is a major step up. We only hope that the company will manage to deliver the new handsets with better batteries than the one of the Galaxy Note 7. It’s safe to assume that they have learned their lesson and won’t release a smartphone until it is perfectly safe to use.
