    Samsung Galaxy S8: Cost, Specification and What's New

    A few days left before the announcement of Samsung Galaxy S8. Sad (and funny, to be honest) the failure of Galaxy Note 7 had no effect on the mood of fans of the brand - the excitement around the Galaxy S8 / S8 + unthinkable. It is therefore not surprising that a lot of important and interesting details has flowed into the network before the announcement. We decided to collect all the rumors in one material, to make it easier to get an idea of ​​what awaits you next week.


    The first thing you need to know, - Samsung will introduce not one but two smartphones, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 +. The differences between them are only in the size of the screen - apparently, so Samsung decided to replace descended from the race Note 7. The very same series of Galaxy Note, most likely, will continue, but a little later.

    Design and construction
    As seen in Galaxy S8 on the body side frame substantially disappeared, and the display is rounded like a Galaxy S7 edge and Galaxy Note 7. Furthermore, the device is completely lost hardware buttons on the front panel, now will be managed only on-screen buttons. Some people do not like it, but, well, it's just a matter of habit, with the resulting advantages, for example increasing the useful area of ​​the display when working in applications.



    Because of these manipulations fingerprint scanner will move to the rear panel and place it next to the camera lens. And it just seems like a very controversial decision, because the finger intuitively will first get into the lens, and only then to the sensor. Small differences in the form of touch are almost indistinguishable. However, it is possible that Samsung is seriously counting on the fact that the fingerprint reader to replace iris scanner.




    It is said that in the first test samples smartphone sensor tried to place under the lower part of the screen, but its presence brings color distortion in the display area.


    Display
    Displays all flagship smartphones Samsung were exceptionally good. Objectively - some of the best on the market. Just like the previous flagships, Samsung Galaxy S8 will be equipped with Super AMOLED-display with a size of 5.7 inches, and Galaxy S8 + - 6,2 inch. Differences in resolution between the two most likely will not. She calls the new screen Samsung Infinity Display. But perhaps the most important innovation will be a new aspect ratio - 18.5: 9. So LG G6, presented in Barcelona, no longer unique.



    Refusal to physical buttons in the front display allowed to occupy more space on the front - now the ratio of the display area to the front panel size is 84.4%. But the dimensions of the body almost unchanged, Galaxy S8 will lie in the hand in the same way as the Galaxy S7 edge.



    Standard screen resolution is 2960 1440 pixels (WQHD +). But the menu can change authorization in the smaller side: to FHD + (2220 1080 pixels) and HD + (1480 720 dots). The aspect ratio is preserved. And in general it is quite a useful feature functionality, which until recently was only available to enthusiasts and fans of alternative firmware.

    Cameras
    Several sources suggest the possibility of video recording at up to 1000 frames per second. And if all this proves true, then Sony Xperia XZ Premium will be the first (and very dangerous) competitor. The sensor will not increase the resolution, it still amounts to 12 megapixel, but the module will be different. The most fundamental difference becomes DRAM-layer memory modules, which greatly accelerate the reading speed. Actually, the same could boast of the recent flagship the Sony, and it looks like another way to achieve a rate of at the moment is impossible.



    Dual Camera - similar to the iPhone, as well as with the flagship Huawei and LG - to Galaxy S8 will not. Samsung does not see much point in fancy effects blur and double optical zoom. And, judging by the comments on Western news resources, many users share this attitude. I wonder what would be better from the point of view of our readers - do not be lazy to write in the comments, if you would like a double chamber in Huawei P10 or single in Galaxy S8, if it is assumed that the latter will take off a little bit better.

    The front camera has a resolution of 8 megapixels, but about the AF data sources differ. Some say that the autofocus will, others say no. I am inclined to believe that the auto focus on the front of the camera will be. And will iris scanner, this was already mentioned above. It will work exactly the same as in the Galaxy Note 7 (about Alexander Babulin told in detail in the survey ), only a little more precise and a little faster at the expense of the scanner with a higher resolution.

    Strong Processor
    As you know, Samsung Galaxy S8 would be the first smartphone based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. But perhaps it will be the first smartphone in the sale, because the first was the already mentioned unannounced Sony Xperia XZ Premium. However, this is not so important. What is more important: Samsung will release a smartphone again at two platforms, and in addition to the Snapdragon 835 will be the Exynos 8895. It is even said that Qualcomm-version will be sold only in the US and rest of the world, including Europe and Asia will be content with devices on Samsung's own platform.
    RAM in all cases will be 4 GB, only the Chinese market model will be available with 6 GB of RAM. Most likely, it will not even regular Galaxy S8, S8 and model + with increased screen sizes. Displacement drive firmware will be 64 GB and can expand its microSD-card capacity of 2 terabytes.


    Curiously, the Exynos 8895 has already zacvetitsya in some benchmarks. And it so happened that on speed, he even walked a bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. I should add that the characteristics of the chips are very similar. Exynos 8895 contains 8 cores, which are divided into 2 groups: 4 self-developed core Samsung and less powerful 4 core Cortex-A53. As a graphics accelerator processor using ARM Mali-G71. In comparison with a precursor represented Mali-T880, which is one of Exynos 8890 processor components Galaxy S7, expected performance increase of almost doubled. Moreover, the new graphics accelerator supports OpenGL ES 3,2, Vulkan API, RenderScript, and may also take on some of the load from the central processor. The technology called GPU Compute, if supported by the applications it allows to distribute the load between the CPU and GPU.



    Continuing the conversation about the speed, cost and lead a recently published GeekBench. The single-core Exynos 8895 mode, gaining 1978 points, and in multi-core - 6375. In turn, Galaxy S8 + based on Snapdragon 835 shown in the same test in 1929 and 6084 points respectively. However, the difference can hardly be called critical.




    Galaxy S8 will get the battery to 3000 mAh, Galaxy S8 + - 3500 mA h . New algorithms for power saving modes will be added, but in general, it should give a maximum of one and a half days of battery life in normal mode. To play a video claimed 17 hours of operation, and it is a bit higher than in previous flagship Samsung. Well, I hope their own tests, we will be able to carry out very soon.

    Among the other "iron" features, rumors of which in one form or another surfaced the web, is to provide support USB 3.0 (with the USB-C connector), as well as Bluetooth 5.0, support for wireless charging and fast charging wire.

    Interface and software
    As the graphical shell novelty will receive the Samsung Experience with user interface Clean UI. The updated version looks ascetic and intuitive, modern fonts and icons rounded to match the overall design of the smartphone body look very aesthetically pleasing.



    One of the most interesting pieces Galaxy S8 may be updated voice assistant Samsung Bixby (logical development of S Voice), which "hang" on a dedicated button on the side of the body. With Bixby can manage application functions do instant recording and tagging completely by voice commands. It will be available translation of text in different languages ​​and recognition of real world objects through the camera, which will allow, for example, to make quick purchases at online stores. Now that's very intriguing, and I hope that the presentation of this talk in more detail.

    When and how much?
    It is clear that the updated flagship Galaxy S8 and S8 + will be taken with a bang and will be sold very well. Samsung makes reference devices on Android, which is never compared with the Chinese smartphone under the pretext of "the same features for less money."


    The date of commencement of sales, are likely to be different for different regions. First of all, obviously, the device will be sold in South Korea as well as in the United States. This should happen by the end of April. Most of the sources said on April 21, but there is information about 28 April. In Europe and in Pakistan to buy Galaxy S8 and S8 +, most likely, it will be possible in May or so, and the price of the most affordable version of the smartphone exactly will exceed 90 Thousand Rupees. However, it is not yet confirmed about the exact prices of Pakistan even in the company Samsung.

    That's all, the material can be updated as new details confirmed. And I remind you that on March 29 the official presentation of the Galaxy S8, so that soon we will know all the details officially.
