The Samsung Galaxy S8 is still to surface, but safe to say, there are already some features being considered as possibilities. Though these specs are still mere speculations for now, such are the more tolerable ones to date.

As some can recall, Samsung underwent a rough road with their mishaps for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, losing unfathomable financial gains along the way. It is now expected that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will start a new trend with the potential features the game will possess.

According to recent reports uploaded by Weibo, it is rumored that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will possess the Snapdragon 835 chip. Additionally, it is rumored that the Samsung Galaxy S8 could be featured at the Mobile World Congress tradeshow to be held at Barcelona, marked on or before February 26 of next year. It can be recalled that the Samsung Galaxy S7 is rigged with a Snapdragon 820, with the other variants donning the Exynos 8890.

This is supported by rumors that Samsung will provide a potential new line of Exynos processor to use for the Samsung Galaxy S8. The features are no push-over either; going at clock speeds of 3GhZ for the big cores, 2.7GhZ for the LITTLE cores. This, however, is still to be confirmed and the upcoming model may still be scrapped if to consider the Snapdragon CPU instead.

There may be some doubt on the possibilities of the Snapdragon chip being put into the Samsung Galaxy S8, as there are a few anomalies that question the specs of the current and lower versions. These are the Snapdragon 835 and the Snapdragon 660, which is made with the Kyro CPU system. Nevertheless, fans will have to wait for further announcements as to what Samsung will opt for.

So far, no release date or announcements pertaining to the creation of the Samsung Galaxy S8 can be withheld. For the time being, tech junkies are urged to take everything as a grain of salt, so stay locked to GamenGuide for further news and updates.
