The launch of Samsung’s galaxy S8 smartphone is looming, and it appears the device will have a number of significant changes. Based on rumors, leaks and projections, this post highlights the 3 major changes that you should expect to see in this device.

Battery life boost

We’re almost certain now that the S8 will come with a longer-lasting battery:

  • Fast charging with Quick Charge 4.0
  • 3000mAh battery for the 5.8-inch phone
  • 3500mAh battery for the 6.2-inch phone

New design

Samsung Galaxy S8 is going to feature a sleek design that’ll probably make Apple fans envious. Samsung will get rid of the home button on the new device and combine it into the display.

The device happens to have some design cons though. For instance, the back cover is not removable, and so it is impossible for you to access to the battery, just like with the HTC One and iPad mini. Still, it’s the kind of device you’d want to be seen using.

It is rumored that the device is getting a 4K display that will support VR feature, plus a voice assistant. The S8 will also feature a waterproof and dustproof design, as well as a back fingerprint sensor.

Performance leap

The Samsung Galaxy S8 will sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset that’s only 10 nanometers in size, rather than 14nm.

Reportedly, Samsung has also done a hell of a job with the sensors and camera lenses. The crisp-quality camera makes it possible for users to capture high quality photos and videos on the go, and is excellent for video chatting.

Multi-tasking, gaming and streaming are going to be bliss on this powerful gadget. If you want fast and furious, that’s exactly what you get with Samsung’s upcoming smartphone.

Released date

Samsung will likely launch the Galaxy S8 smartphone on March 29th. The company has already taken elaborate steps to reassure users after the battery fire fiasco of the Note 7. It’ll be interesting to see how the S8 fares in the market.
