Galaxy S8 May Adopt iPhone 7 Feature
According to the report, published in Fone Arena, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 may feature stereo speakers. It would be the first Samsung’s Android smartphone to feature to feature a stereo speaker.
However, it would not be the first smartphone device to opt it. HTC is using these stereo speakers on its different smartphones since few years. Apple recently introduced stereo speaker in iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Now Samsung is planning to come up with stereo speakers with the help of Harman technology. Samsung acquired it recently for nearly $8 billion.
Although, the automotive division Chief of Samsung, Park Jong-hwan said in a press conference that Harman audio technology could be fully implemented in Galaxy S series earliest by 2018.
So, it is possible that Samsung Galaxy S8 may only feature Harman-branding and the audio technology could be carried out in 2018’s flagship.
