Starting from back to back Note 7 failures to unsuccessful attempts by Samsung to retain the loyal customers; it has been very unfortunate end for the Samsung customers. Even Samsung has officially declared the end of Galaxy Note 7.
However, fans are still having some faith left with Samsung, and they are keeping their fingers crossed for next year’s Galaxy S8. In the meanwhile, Samsung has also started working hard for its next year release.
Some rumors argued that Samsung might rush to launch the next high-end handset, but that might not be the case because we know that Samsung always sticks to quality and tries to adopt a new technology with a handset, which means firmware development will take time.
As per a post of Sammobile, Samsung software engineers are working hard on Samsung S8. Currently, Samsung firmware is built with markets of South Korea, Taiwan, US, China, UK, Germany, France, Italy, and Poland.
Last year, Samsung started working on firmware for Galaxy Note 7, and it was launched in February this year. Therefore, it will take more or less same time for Galaxy S8 firmware manufacturing. We are expecting S8 to be released on February 26 at MWC 2017 in Barcelona since the South Korean company has booked an event on that date in Barcelona.
As per the rumors, Galaxy S8 will have two variants. Both the variants are expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 for US model and Exynos 8895 for others. One of the variants will feature a 5.1-inch display 1440×2560 pixel resolution, and the other variant will come with a 5.5-inch display with 2160×3840-pixel resolution.
