We’re used to seeing plenty of Galaxy S rumors this time of year, but there’s always one report that stands out, and it comes from a source who has often provided extensive previews of unreleased Samsung devices. Well guess what, Android fans: Christmas came early this year.
Eldar Murtazin, a Russian blogger and Samsung insider who regularly scores early access to the newest phones, just gave us an extensive Galaxy S8 preview over at Mobile-Review. According to him, the Galaxy S8 was already shown to key carrier partners in December, in preparation for the launch.
Just as recent leaks have suggested, the Galaxy S8 will come in two versions, and the second model will feature a larger screen than anything seen on a Galaxy S smartphone before. The phones won’t be bigger than last year’s Galaxy S7 versions, but the screen-to-front ratio will be increased.
The Galaxy S8 might also sport a fingerprint sensor under the display, although Murtazin can’t yet say for sure. Apparently, Samsung also looked at placing the fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone. Of note,recent Galaxy S8 case renders showed a phone that did not include a fingerprint scanner on the back.
Murtazin also said that the design of the Galaxy S8 impressed carrier partners who attended private meetings with Samsung. The phone will be released in the second half of April, a source familiar with one mobile operator’s plans noted. This unnamed executive also said that while demand is expected to be high, supply may be constrained at launch.
The phone is supposed to come in 5.7-inch and 6.2-inch flavors, sporting new AMOLED display technology that should deliver a larger color gamut, better brightness, improved color accuracy and increased energy efficiency. Murtazin says the phone shown in Samsung Display’s promo videos a few days ago is not the Galaxy S8, but rather a demo of this new OLED tech.Read More...
