#GalaxyS8 #Samsung – Samsung Galaxy S8 rumors: Does phone size matter to win back customers? : The South Korean tech giant attempts to woo back its lost customers by coming up with two distinct sizes for the new Galaxy S8. Speculators are spreading that the new Galaxy S8 will come in 5.7-inch and 6.2-inch variants.
The existing standard size is 5.5-inches. The Galaxy S7 edge and Galaxy S7 have 5.5-inch and 5.1-inch displays, respectively. In an analyst press briefing, Samsung Vice President and Chief of Design Lee Don-tae teased further that Galaxy S8 would show off a new “slick design” enhanced by an artificial intelligence that is even better than Google Assistant and Siri.
Meanwhile, Apple is rumored to also ditch the home button and feature an OLED display, most likely with curved edges for iPhone 8. The Investor indicated in its report that the 6.2-inch panel will fit into the same body as the smaller-sized smartphone.
It is uncertain, however, if the tech giant will be able to achieve this. So, what they are planning to do is they will adopt a bezel-less design and remove the home button, thus allowing more space for immersive viewing.
The new models of Galaxy S8 smartphones will ship as SM-G950 and SM-G955. Superstitions have it that Samsung also came up with a new naming scheme for its phone units to erase the bad luck that happened on exploding batteries.
“Our absolute priority continues to be customer safety,” Conor Pierce, Samsung’s mobile and IT vice president for the United Kingdom and Ireland, said in a statement. On the other hand, Galaxy Note 8 was assigned a new name “SM-N950.”
“In order to attract potential Note consumers who prefer a large screen, Samsung has decided to adopt bigger screens for both new models of the S8,” an unidentified telecom analyst said.
There is a great deal of superstition surrounding the number four in South Korea, where it is considered bad luck. The number is always a skipped floor number in public establishments. Hence, Samsung might be playing safe. Well, an ounce of prevention would not hurt. Source: vinereport
