The upcoming Samsung flagship will have two Galaxy S8 variants in 2017. Those models include essential Galaxy S8 and the premium Galaxy S8 Plus. We are not sure whether the premium model will be called S8 Plus or S8 Edge. However, the interesting thing about the premium model is its size. It will be Galaxy S8 phablet-sized model which will sport a massive 6 inches screen.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Phablet-Sized Model
Google has Nexus 6 smartphone which features 6 inches huge screen, but most of the people did not like it. However, the Samsung Galaxy S8 6 inches model might be pocket-friendly.
Samsung is probably eliminating the top and bottom bezels from its next flagship. It will help Samsung to increase the ratio of the display more than 90%. So, huge 6 inches screen may find a home on the screen. We recently talk about Galaxy S8 unusual “Beast Mode” feature, which is rumored to enhance the power management and performance.
Korean website Naver says that it will be the first time and Samsung will become the first company to have a flagship of 6 inches display. It is 100% accurate if you ignore the Google’s Nexus 6 which was launched in 2014.
There was rumored going around about Artificial Intelligence (AI) which will be called ‘Bixby.’ Naver also indicated that Samsung Galaxy S8 would feature controlled voice assistant with advanced AI. According to the site, some reports claims that Google could prevent Samsung from featuring AI in Galaxy S8 since it would be a competition for Google Assistant.
The report also said that Galaxy S8 would be quite expensive than Galaxy S7. It will be probably 20% more expensive.
The release date of Galaxy S8 is 26th of February 2017 but the latest rumors are talking about release delay, and it will launch during a special event in April 2017.
