Samsung Galaxy S8 News and Release Date, Rumors and Features


The Samsung Galaxy S7 is a sensational phone. In addition to the Galaxy S7 Edge it’s undoubtedly the very best handset Samsung’s ever made and perhaps the very best phone on the marketplace. However, that’s simply made all of us more excited to see exactly what the company can do next year with the Samsung Galaxy S8. Notably little is understood about it, however, over the coming months we anticipate a growing number of leaks and rumors to emerge, and we’ll gather them all for you here. Keep reading for everything we learn about the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 news and yes, the release date might be in next year.

Galaxy S8 News and Release Date

(Update 1: 17 February 2017) The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 will release on 21st of April 2017 as per the latest reports.

Samsung launches its ‘S’ variety flagships in the very first couple of months of the year, as happened most recently with the Samsung Galaxy S7 (in March 2016).

Galaxy S8 News and Release Date

We may see the Samsung Galaxy S8 in March 2017. However, if anything happens, it will most likely be earlier than that, as another thing Samsung tends to do is reveal its new phones at the start of MWC, which starts from the 27th February to the 2nd March 2017.


Far there aren’t any rumors about the Galaxy S8’s design. However, we think it will look rather similar to the Samsung Galaxy S7, because as elegant as that phone is, it’s extremely comparable to the Samsung Galaxy S6, so by the S8 the design will be due a refresh.

On the other hand, we do not anticipate much of a modification to the screen. The Samsung Galaxy S7 has a 5.1-inch QHD display screen, and we question it will get much larger for the S8, considered that many smartphone screens are hovering around the 5.0-5.5-inch size.

Power And Specifications

The Galaxy S variety is constantly power-packed, and we’re sure the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be the best. The Samsung Galaxy Note 6 is currently rumored to have 6GB of RAM, and if it does, there’s a likelihood that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will have the same too.

We have no idea exactly what processor it will have. However, Samsung consistently uses the very best and latest processor from either Qualcomm or from its internal Exynos variety, so anticipate one or other of them.

We can also expect the Samsung Galaxy S8 to operate Android N, overlaid as usual with the Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.


Samsung has impressed us with its cams over the last few years, and the Galaxy S8’s snapper seems no exception. PhotoRumors asserts the company is dealing with a 1/1.7-inch CMOS sensing unit with a f/1.4 aperture. In simple English, that implies it would have a large opening, which in turn would enable it to capture more light.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is bound to acquire the majority of the S7’s features, like the fingerprint scanner, water resistant build, a microSD card slot and quick charging.

It will most likely get some additional features. So far we do not know exactly what, however, a USB Type-C port is an apparent thing that was missed out on the Galaxy S7.
