Samsung is one company customers love to invest in. The biggest rival to Apple, this company ensures quality, speed, and a smashing user experience. Releasing on March 29, Samsung 8 will change the tech industry. Or so we hope! After their disastrous S7, the customer base of Samsung started declining. Samsung apologized to millions of users and recalled 3 million explode-able Galaxy Note 7 phones. To regain their lost respect, Samsung is now announcing its new and improved Galaxy S8. Coming up with a comeback design isn’t easy, Huawei, Del, and LG, have all struggled with it, however, Samsung has promised tremendous improvements to the design and internal devices, so we’re hoping for something great.
What we know about the device:
There are some points that we know for sure. We know that Samsung will reveal the phone on 29th march and it will be showcased in New York. We also know that that the scary eight-point battery has been revised, so we hopefully will not get more explosions. Samsung is also leaving out more space inside for the battery, while this is not the reason note 7 caught fire, there might be some tactic behind it.
In terms of design, there have been speculations that the phone might have a curvier design much like Edge series. This might be a gorgeous design, and this sleek and trendy look might earn back Samsung its lost reputation. Especially considering how Apple has put no new innovations in their phone’s design. However, just like Apple, Samsung might release two phones, S8 and S8 plus. This has been a recent tradition that competing companies have started employing. The plus series might have better hardware specs.
The first batch of sales may be 16 million units of Galaxy S8 phones. However, the company is anticipating a high demand from customers. The face of this phone could account for 90% of the screen and might give full Vision, just like competitor LG. However, this rival is introducing an even larger display, so Samsung might be in for a surprise. There have been speculations that the S8 version would be 5.8 inches, while the plus would be 6.2 inches. These sizes are larger than Note 7. However, s8 might have a smaller footprint than Note 7 and even S8 plus.
What about AI assistant?
So finally Samsung is hoping on board the intelligence wagon. It is introducing Bixby, which is a digital assistant. Last year Samsung bought an AI startup, so good things can be imaged. Bixby may help users navigate the phone, operate apps, handle payments, call and message contacts and resolve inquiries. It might also be present in 7 different languages.
Say goodbye to home button
There are speculations that Samsung is getting rid of the home button. It’s introducing a fingerprint reader instead. Moreover, it is including two rear cameras, which equate to better selfies for everyone. It’s retaining the beauty mode, so that’s definitely good news for everyone! From bigger batteries to the exclusive Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip, Samsung may surprise us all this March!
