Samsung has yet to announce the Galaxy S8, but already rumors are ripe and on fire. The latest rumors suggest Samsung is on the verge of making some massive hardware changes to the new device, but only time will tell if the information is accurate to the core.
It would make sense for Samsung to put a lot of work into the Galaxy S8 seeing as things did not go according to plan with the release of the Galaxy Note 7. The device exploded and caused bodily harm to several individuals before it was completely put to rest.
Galaxy S8 Specs And Features Rumors
Here’s what we know: the Galaxy S8 might come with a huge 2K display, and could turn out to be the best mobile display ever conceived. However, it would seem that Samsung isn’t planning on stopping there. The company might decide to remove the home button from the handset, which means the fingerprint sensor would be manufactured into the phone itself.
Now, according to a report from PhoneArena, it’s possible the home button might stick around because making it happen and attaching the sensor directly into the handset is proving to be quite difficult. However, Samsung wants to prove itself again so don’t be too surprised if everything is as expected when the Galaxy S8 is announced.
Things get even more interesting when we learn of a possible plan to ditch the physical power button for a touch-based one. It wouldn’t be the first phone to do this, but knowing Samsung, the company might want to place its own unique touch to the idea.
Galaxy S8 Wireless Charging, Anyone?
Ever heard of 3-coil wireless charging? That’s something a report from SamMobile claims Samsung might add to the device. We understand this technology should allow for faster wireless charging within a wider area, so it’s no longer relevant to place the device dead center on the charging pad.
If these rumors are true, then Samsung has a powerful smartphone on its hands, and we bet the company can’t wait to reveal it. However, Samsung might need to keep an eye on the OnePlus 4, because rumors give the impression it could be the most powerful and impressive smartphone of 2017.
The Chinese company doesn’t have much to lose when compared to Samsung, which means it has more room to try interesting things.
Then again, recent reports claim the Galaxy S8 is set to come with its own intelligent AI assistant, so that’s something to look forward to come 2017.
