The upcoming flagship smartphone Samsung Galaxy S8 has been a subject of numerous reports and speculations all over the Internet. The device has become the focus of Android fans following the disappointing release of the hybrid phablet Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Previous reports suggested that the new entry of Samsung's Galaxy S series might arrive earlier than expect; however, new reports have emerged suggesting that the South Korean company might delay its launching.

According to the Samsung vice chairman Lee Jae-yong, the new Samsung Galaxy S8 will carry a smooth and glossy design. Lee Jae-yong also said that the company will no longer take any chances after what happened to the Galaxy Note 7 and make sure the device comes out in perfection. Apart from its expected top-tier specs under the hood, the new Samsung Galaxy S8 will also arrive with the best smartphone camera technology in the market today.

Although Samsung has yet to provide the official details of the new Samsung Galaxy S8, fans and critics have already shared their prediction on what consumers can expect on the upcoming device. According to the report, the company is said to develop the handset with the best hardware specs Samsung can offer. There are speculations suggesting that Samsung fans will no longer see the traditional home button on Samsung Galaxy S8 as it will be replaced with a fingerprint sensor on the display.

Rumor has it that the new Samsung Galaxy S8 will feature a dual camera; however, this has yet to be confirmed by the company. Samsung is also expected to release its new Galaxy Note 8 in 2017, but tech fans must take these rumors and speculations with a grain of salt until Samsung decides to make an official statement.

Meanwhile, there are reports suggesting that Samsung Galaxy S8 might be launched during the Mobile World Congress early next year. If rumors prove to be true, consumers can expect the device to hit the shelves in February 2017. Stay tuned for more news and updates about Samsung Galaxy S8.
