After the iMiD 2016 display exhibition that took place in Seoul last week, according to the report by Korean publication the Investor, Samsung Galaxy S8 could have large screen area and it’s going to be massive.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Could Be Mostly Screen
Park Won-sang, an engineer said that Samsung may not stop at 90 percent screen space for the Galaxy S8 and aim for a 99% screen too.
The present screen area of the phone is 80%. We have already seen Xiaomi Mi MIX which is one of the entire screen phone and if the rumour of Samsung Galaxy S8 is true then it will be not surprising for us. Because of the sensational failure that was the Galaxy Note 7, every new rumoured detail about the coming Galaxy S8 is put under a microscope.
Samsung will replace the Home button with the fingerprint scanner under the display. This will allow Samsung to fill the entire front of the Samsung Galaxy S8 with a giant curved screen, which means the fingerprint scanner will be on that screen.
The handset may also flaunt a bezel-less body and an OLED display. The device could also come in two variants with an Iris scanner and dual-lens camera. There’s a chance it might only be available with a curved display which is user-friendly.
Galaxy S8 features also include Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 830 chip or Samsung’s Exynos 8995, both of which are unannounced, as well as a 4K display and an Edge-style screen.
Samsung’s Vice Chairman Lee Jae-Yong has revealed that the Galaxy S8 will feature a new “slick design”, an improved camera, and an enhanced artificial intelligence service.
Good News For Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Users
In South Korea, an exchange program is available. Where, buyers of Note 7 could exchange their handsets for Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge. Eventually, they may be offered the Galaxy S8 at an added cost. As per rumours, the price of Samsung Galaxy S8 may be at around US$850 (AU$1,115) when it releases in 2017.
