Samsung probably can argue that it is responsible for making curved, edge to edge displays fashionable, especially with its more recent Galaxy lineup of smartphone devices. But soon, it will not be able to boast of being the only one phone maker to offer such stylish screens. Another South Korean mobile giant, LG, is also looking to join in on the curvy fun.
According to a report recently published by SamMobile (which cited South Korea based tech website Naver), Samsung’s upcoming flagship device, the Galaxy S8, is said to be capable of shooting video footage at 1,000 frames per second (fps).
The latest rumor tied to Samsung’s flagship device for this year, the Galaxy S8, indicates that the Android powered handset will come in an expanded range of color options, including a gold colored option. What we know is the latest addition to the South Korean phone maker’s Galaxy lineup of smartphones will be officially announced this coming March 29th.
According to a report recently published by the Korea Economic Daily, Samsung’s highly awaited flagship device for this year, the Galaxy S8, could feature a facial recognition technology that should allow users to unlock the device more quickly.
There is talk that the new upcoming Pixel device this year could get rid of the familiar 3.5 millimeter headphone jack. The basis of this rumor is a post in the comments section of 9to5Google, but it is worth noting that tech site did clarify that it has not been able to confirm yet if its source (there is only one) has enough basis to claim so.
Samsung recently tweeted that the Exynos 9, its new processor offering, will have support for dual camera smartphones. This is made possible through the South Korean mobile giant’s Dual ISP (Image Signal Processor) technology. Dual camera configurations are nothing new, of course.
According to a report recently published by South Korean publication The Bell, Apple is apparently considering putting OLED display screens on all of its iPhone models by 2019. To date, rumors are already circulating that this year’s highly awaited iPhone 8 will sport an OLED display on an edge to edge screen.
As revealed by Rick Osterloh, chief of hardware at Google, a new Pixel device is coming this year, but this new flagship offering may come with a rather steep price. When Google released its Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones last year, it signalled a new era in which the tech giant is releasing a Google branded device that is not Nexus.
A few days ago, leaked images emerged showing Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S8. But now, it appears that the specifications of the South Korean phone maker’s newest flagship device have been leaked by none other than Evan Blass (because, who else?) via a Twitter post.
Specifically, the specs are for the Galaxy S8 Plus. Of course, Samsung has not confirmed anything yet, but the leaked information may be worth checking out nonetheless:
