Another rumor suggests the Galaxy S8 will have a gigantic display

January 18th, 2017 at 3:52 PM
Galaxy S8 Rumors 5.7-inch Display

The Galaxy S8 will have the biggest screen in the land, a new report indicates, further reinforcing rumors that claim Samsung’s next flagship will adopt a brand new design. The phone is expected to feature an all-screen front, made possible by the removal of the home button and the reduction of the bezels.

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will come with 5.7-inch and 6.2-inch displays, which are larger than the displays found on their predecessors — 5.1-inch for the Galaxy S7 and 5.5-inch for the Galaxy S7 edge. The Korea Herald says the Galaxy S8 may have the “largest ever” 5.7-inch panel, a first for Galaxy S line.

Citing industry watchers, The Herald reports the Galaxy S8 will have tiny bezels and “feature more curved panels” than the Galaxy S7 edge.

Other notable features include an 8-megapixel selfie camera with autofocus, an iris scanner, Harman Kardon stereo speakers, and a fingerprint sensor built into the display.

Software-wise, the Galaxy S8 is expected to be the first Samsung smartphone to ship with a Samsung-owned virtual assistant on board, the Bixby assistant developed by Viv Labs. Samsung acquired the Viv Labs in October, a company created by people who developed the Siri technology sold to Apple.

The Galaxy S8 phone is expected to be unveiled in April, the report notes, but the report doesn’t offer any firm announcement or release dates.
