This is the Samsung Galaxy S8 – and its got four massive problems – specs and more


Evan Blass released information last night claiming the above is the new Samsung Galaxy S8.

So whats new about the Samsung Galaxy S8. For starters there will be 2 screen sizes, 5.8 and 6.2 inches QHD Super amoled screens as there are no navigation buttons. The display will incorporate these. The aspect ratio is 18:5:9, not 16:9. The processor with either be an Exynos or Snapdragon 835 depending on region. Both will have 10nm fabrication making them faster than last years models. They will feature a 3,000 or 3,500mAh battery, 4gb ram, 64gb storage, micro SD card support and USB Type C. The headphone jack is still present.

The camera is still 12mp f/1.7 on the rear and the front is upgraded from 5mp to 8mp f/1.7. Iris scanning , first seen on the explosive Note 7 will be present too. There will be a dock that makes it provide a desktop view to a screen, Bixby its own assistant with a hardware button to activate and force touch will be available on the screen.

However there are 4 problems –

– First is the price. This will be 100 euros more than last years S7 models.
– The Finger Print sensor is now on the rear but next to the camera. This is such a bad spot in terms of reachability
– The camera – no rear dual camera setup. Samsung have stuck to the same camera from last year, although it will have had some minor improvements. However, having used many dual lens camera setups, I believe this is the future and Samsung’s option is so last year.
– There is no Samsung logo on the body of the phone. That is because it is hard coded on the front screen, at the top with the words- SAMSUNG – WTF.

Finally, you will have to wait a long time for the S8. It won’t be available until later in April 2017.
