Samsung Galaxy S8 Release Date, Specs, Features, News & Update: March 2017 Launching Alongside Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Confirmed! More Details Revealed
The battle between upcoming flagship smartphones Apple iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 has already started even before both companies announce them. According to the latest report, Samsung will launch the new Samsung Galaxy S8 in March 2017 and it will run on a Snapdragon 835 processor from Qualcomm. On the other hand, the iPhone 8 is expected to arrive during the third quarter of 2017 with impressive specs and features.
The recent partnership between Samsung and Qualcomm would certainly help the South Korean company's Samsung Galaxy S8 development. Apart from its powerful mobile CPU, the upcoming handset will also carry several advanced features such as the Quick Charge 4 system, which is said to speed up battery charging by up to 20 percent. There are also speculations suggesting that Samsung might also unveil its new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 early next year. The company has been surrounded by bad publicity regarding its safety features following the disappointing release of Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
According to a report by Engadget, Samsung will focus more on the safety features of its upcoming devices and that include the new Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8. It is reported that the tech manufacturer and Qualcomm are working side by side to make sure the issues on the Galaxy Note 7 will no longer happen on the future releases. "An additional layer of protection is also being added to help prevent battery overcharging and regulate current throughout every charge cycle," Qualcomm said.
Meanwhile, WCCFTech reported that the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor of the Samsung Galaxy S8 will feature the company's custom-made Kryo CPU. This technology is expected to improve the clock speed of the processor without compromising the safety feature.
As of the moment, Samsung has yet to provide concrete details about its Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy Note 8. However, tech observers are saying that the company is making sure that its flagship will come out better than the upcoming Apple iPhone 8.
