The Galaxy S8 may have a crazy feature no iPhone has: Beast Mode

December 21st, 2016 at 2:03 PM
Galaxy S8 vs. iPhone 8: Beast Mode

Galaxy S8 rumor season is in full swing, in spite of Samsung’s efforts to contain leaks. A new report reveals that Samsung is looking to trademark a new type of feature: Beast Mode. Yes, this is serious, and given the company’s efforts to trademark this particular name, it’s likely it’ll be found on its flagship devices, including next year’s Galaxy S8.

Found by Dutch site, the application isn’t very revealing, so we don’t know exactly what Beast Mode will be. But it’s probably safe to assume that a phone will offer the best possible performance with Beast Mode enabled.

Beast Mode sounds like the opposite of the Battery Saving Mode found on Samsung phones and other Android devices. That probably means the phone’s processor will run at full power, which also means it may consume extra charge while in Beast Mode.

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 is expected to come with more efficient chips. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and a new Samsung Exynos chip should equip the Galaxy S8 versions next year, and they’re both built on 10nm process technology. That’s the same chip technology that Apple is believed to be using for next year’s iPhone 8.

That said, it’ll be interesting to see what this Beast Mode will look and feel like. Perhaps it’s what Samsung needs to beat the iPhone in performance tests next year. Historically, Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones have never been able to outperform the iPhone. Will a Beast Mode change that, even if it sounds a little silly?
