Rumours say Samsung Galaxy S8 to have 8GB RAM, faster Storage; Galaxy S8 Plus sport 6-Inch Display
Samsung Galaxy S8 will have 8GB of RAM (made using Samsung's own 10nm fabrication technology) as also per the tipster Ice Universe
The failure of Galaxy Note 7 has put Samsung in a defensive situation where it needs to bounce back with a very strong product. The recent rumours of Samsung Galaxy S8 with an 8GB RAM may hopefully put the company back in the competition. Meanwhile, another rumour of a larger variant of Samsung Galaxy S8 next year, named Galaxy S8 Plus may fill the gap between the flagship Galaxy S series and the flagship phablet Galaxy Note series.
According to MySmartPrice, Samsung Galaxy S8 will have 8GB of RAM (made using Samsung's own 10nm fabrication technology) as also per the tipster Ice Universe. The latter has also suggested that Samsung Galaxy S8 will come with the company's UFS 2.1 flash storage. Earlier the leaked reports suggested that the phone might be coming with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.
Another leak mentions that a new model from Samsung that will fit between the Galaxy S series and the Galaxy Note series, called the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. It is said to feature a 6-inch Super AMOLED display, compared to the 5-inch Super AMOLED display on the Samsung Galaxy S8, per a report by a South Korean publication (via 9to5Google).
The bigger display might not make the device substantially bigger than a Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus which reported to have very thin bezels. It wouldn't be a big surprise on the size of the phone as the gap left in the phablet category from the recall of Galaxy Note 7
The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus smartphone is said to launch alongside the Galaxy S8 that as we said is anticipated to sport a 5-inch display.
Reports suggest that Samsung has postponed its launch of Galaxy S8 smartphone back to April 2017 from February 2017 in order to gain confidence from consumers before making it available in the global market.
Introducing a new feature known as Beast mode in Samsung Galaxy S8 was also there as a rumour. Though not much is known, the upcoming feature was spotted in a trademark application from Europe.
It may somehow compensate the performance of the top-end SoC (expected to be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835), apart from the massive 8GB of RAM.
As all of these are rumours, we will have to wait for an official word from the company about the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.
