On that note, those who are out in the market for either a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge are probably wondering whether to wait for the upcoming flagship or not at this point. To help consumers decide on what to do, here’s a look at what the Galaxy S8 is said to have in store and how its features and upgrades stand against the current Samsung powerhouses.

Galaxy S8 Specs Are Pretty Impressive

Right off the bat, the Galaxy S8 is reportedly going to be powered by a Snapdragon 830. That’s for the models in the United States. In other markets, it’s going to house an Exynos 8895.

Now, there are two variants of the Samsung flagship with the codenames Dream and Dream 2. The former is allegedly going to sport a 5.1-inch QHD display with 4 GB of RAM under the hood, while the latter is going to have a 5.5-inch 4K display with 6 GB of RAM.

As everyone can see, there’s no difference between the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S8 when it comes to screen measurements, but the Dream 2 version is taking things to the next level with the 4K display and bump in RAM.

Performance-wise, the new chips coming into town are going to deliver a better experience than the Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8890 of the Galaxy S7 line, which doesn’t really come as much of a surprise.

Mobile Photography Is One Of The Galaxy S8’s Fortes

Expected to have a sensor that packs between 18 and 24 megapixels, the Galaxy S8 is going to be capable of taking great shots and videos.

More than that, it might have a wide f/1.4 aperture to snap clear pictures even in low-light conditions, and it could boast a dual-lens configuration to boot. Since the Galaxy S7 has a 12-megapixel primary camera and already captures impressive images and clips, approximately doubling those dots means it’s safe to assume a pretty huge step-up in the pipeline.

Galaxy S8 Could Rock 90 Percent Screen And Slick Design

Samsung is reportedly ditching the flat screen in favor of curved ones on both the aforementioned Dream and Dream 2 variants, and those are said to occupy more than 90 percent of the Galaxy S8’s face — potentially like the Xiaomi Mi Mix.

What’s more, it’s going to don a “slick design.” However, it wasn’t really hashed out, but if anything, that means the Galaxy S8 will be one heck of a looker.cc
