Samsung may have found its way to winning back the trust of tech savvies after their smartphone prestige was marred by the fiasco caused by Galaxy Note 7.
The phone is all geared up for its release on April 21, but before that happens, leaks as to its features and accessories already overwhelmed the web. To start with, Forbes reported that Samsung Galaxy S8 will come with "infinity screen," which means that this new Samsung smartphone flagship will almost be bezel-free to give way to its bigger screen and the total removal of the physical home key.
Yahoo further confirmed that the phone will be equipped with a special dock called DeX, which can turn an Android phone into a desktop computer when connected to a monitor, mouse, and keyboard. It can be remembered that the same concept has been used by Motorola and Microsoft, but it was not well-received in the market so it is worth waiting how Samsung can pull this off.
More importantly, Samsung S8 will be equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, a new processor different from previous S smartphones.
Meanwhile, Daily Mail leaked a video showing prototype cases for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. The video proved that S8 is yet the widest handset that Samsung ever produced; however, more than the size, the casing showed in the video neither have a cut where the rumored USB-C port can fit in nor it has a space for the fingerprint sensor at the back of the phone, which were previously claimed S8 will have. With this, it was suggested that the phones might have a stylus pen instead. Nonetheless, many gave the benefit of the doubt that the prototype may be a lot different from the real thing.
Finally, reports also confirmed that Samsung Galaxy S8 will not be around at Mobile World Congress, as per the statement of Samsung's President DJ Koh. He said that the Galaxy S8 will not be ready to launch at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, which kicks off next month.
