The phone will cost $1166 AUD and the Galaxy S8 Edge will be priced at $1236 AUD. So there is waiting time yet but you can know some of the features and the specifications that you would expect from this smartphone.
There will be no home button in Galaxy S8
The new Samsung Galaxy S8 will have no Home button on its rear bezel to provide better view of photos and videos. The fingerprint reader and display integration is anticipated. Similarly it is in rumour that even Apple is also reportedly planning to remove the Home button on the iPhone 8, which is scheduled for a September release 2017.
The display of Galaxy S8 will have 4K Resolution
The display of the Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to provide 4K resolution at 3840 x 2160 pixels. This much resolution screen, coupled with a pixel density of 800 ppi, will make the device an applicable mobile virtual reality platform.
Galaxy S8 will have Dual-Lens Cameras
It has been revealed that Samsung Galaxy S8 will be procuring dual-lens cameras for future handsets in hopes to provide DLSR-type photos to its customers. Some of the biggest enhancements in the specifications will include at least 30 megapixels seen in the rear camera, dual micro SD card slots, enhanced body metric sensors, and much more.
Offer Reliable chipsets to both US and International versions of Galaxy S8
the Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 chipsets shall be available on US models of the Galaxy S8, while the Exynos 8895 chipsets will make their way into the international versions of the phone. It is also being rumoured that the Exynos 8895 shall hold 3GHz of maximum speed, making it faster to shoot and save images using the Samsung Galaxy S8 compared to the Galaxy S7.
There will be no headphone jack in Galaxy S8
As Apple iPhone 7 comes with no headphone jack same footsteps are being followed by Samsung. It is therefore leaked that Samsung will remove the 3.5 mm headphone jack from the Galaxy S8 and instead use a USB-C port. It is not yet known if Samsung will include a USB-C adapter with the phone. The adapter’s inclusion should definitely make the transition easier for its consumers.
The Galaxy S8 will have a“plus” version
The Samsung Galaxy S8 will supposedly have a “plus” version, which basically means the same unit with a larger display size. The standard version will have 5.1 inches of screen size, while the “plus” version will have 5.5 inches. Another interesting twist is that both versions are rumoured to have “Edge” displays instead of the standard “flat” screens.
The new Samsung Galaxy S8 features will center on increasing security while improving speed, productivity, and making both the S8 and S8 Edge more functional. Samsung will be improving on eye sensing technology. The retina eye scanner in both S8 models will be more responsive and take less time to register.
If you pre-order either the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Edge you will have the best chance of securing a handset on the day of launch, and considering the enormous consumer interest there’s likely to be significant launch delays. The Galaxy S series has become one of the top smartphone models of all-time, and one of the most consistent in recent years.
Pre-orders, whether online or in-store will also allow some in larger markets to get their hands on their new phone up to a couple of days before those who elect to purchase on the date of launch. All of the top carriers in Australia and worldwide will be starting taking Samsung Galaxy S8 pre-orders about two weeks before the actual launch, and those who are looking to secure a handset first may want to consider this. Till then wait for more information and keep yourself updated.
