Anonymous, 16 Mar 2017copy who? Sony invented slow motion now? In reality every phone manufacturer is copying J-Phone who released the first camera phone in November 2000... it was a mighty 0.11MP!!
I think it´s gonna be a great phone with it´s size compered to the screen, but there are four things which could be better, battery power, the lack of dual SIM model in all countries, the fingerprint scanner close to camera lens, and the last thing the lack of wireless charging with "Rezence" technology.
I never liked Samsung phones, no matter what gimmicky tech they throw in:) I always go for an underdog, currently with Nexus 6p. I really dislike this company and its ways. I'm most certain that there are always a better option from smaller companies who delivers better value for the money:)
Claudiu.Lucian, 16 Mar 2017Tann, Samsung is using Sony sensors for their flagship phones for years. And I think that Sony... moreNo they dont, half are isocell samsung sensors, which are not as good.
And Yes they do have to keep their tech proprietry, just as sammy keeps its exynos to itself.
S8 uses 12mpx one? Its certainly not the Sonys 19mpx dram layered specific one then. Get it?
This rumor just doesnt add up.
We ll have to wait and see.
P.s. Who cares what sells better or worse. 80% of android users dont care about samsung flagships or phones.
Knowing samsung.They know how to copy. Hopefully they won't rush the s8 and people will have peace of mind to use theur phones again.
Simon, 16 Mar 2017Dude, Samsung is the biggest customer for Sony sensors.. Sony makes them for Samsung based on ... moreSonys only dram layerd sensor is 19mpx one as in XZs and XZ Premium, no 12mpx as is in S8....
So, this is either a fake rumor story just as bezeless X2 was, or Sammy infringed patent rights.
Or Sammy will be using 19 mpx one in S8, which is certainly not likely.
But Sony tends to keep its newest sensors to Xperias, so even less likely.

And I think that Sony gets much more profit out of being the biggest manufacture of mobile camera sensors than their sinking smartphone department anyway. So they have no reason to keep the best technologies for themselves if they can sell products incorporating them to more organised companies which know how to sell a phone.
hehe xd, 16 Mar 2017you either have good looks whit a curved screen or protection dont want to break your phone we... moreI don't use my phone to impress g1rls or to get l4id, so I'm more into performance than look. If you want design and look,go for 4pple. Sammy was about performance before, but since s6 they went look over performance. But a fl4t screen even look good and is well protected.
Congratulations, Samsung, this surprised me, I didn't expected this year camera to have 1000fps recording like XZ Premium and the front camera to be a front dual camera with RGB sensor for iris recognition, if I understood right.
Ah yes the new Galaxy S8..The best Potato Samsung has created yet!! lol..
Zenodroid, 16 Mar 2017I had s6, my friend bought s6 edge and now i have s7 while he got s7 edge. I use s-curve tpu s... moreyou either have good looks whit a curved screen or protection dont want to break your phone well dont drop a 800 $ phone
Obi Wan Kenobi, 16 Mar 2017Well, but it looks like Sony wants to share it's new XZ camera tech (IMX400) with others.... ... moreIt's not the same IMX400 sensor as on their top end flagships right now, rather it's a lower version of it
Simon, 16 Mar 2017Dude, Samsung is the biggest customer for Sony sensors.. Sony makes them for Samsung based on ... moreQualcomm provided Kryo cores inside their SoCs so any phone with SD processors will have that. And cheating was already said to be a bad habbit ever since everyone was born. But well, cheaters never win to be real
Anonymous, 16 Mar 2017If this is the case, then Sony just lost it's biggest advantage.Not even once. S8 and S8+ can only shoot 1,000fps Slow Motion videos, but can't do Predictive Capture like the XZs and XZ Premium, at least not that it was mentioned. That feature is far more important than Slow Motion videos. And that resolution will just suck for being only 12mp in resolution anyways
It's what happens when they're desperate to beat the leader of smartphone technology in the world
hehe xd, 16 Mar 2017you never had one have you ?I had s6, my friend bought s6 edge and now i have s7 while he got s7 edge. I use s-curve tpu silicone cover for good protection on the phone, even when it lands on the screen. Edge need flip or full body cover. And is not good for big hands, bc of the edges.
Mixkhata007, 16 Mar 2017The ONLY thing I hate MORE than curved screens are 18:9 displays. I mean, why the phuck should... moreYou can still watch the same videos in the same size as before. The only difference will be that some of what used to be a part of the bezel, with irrelevant (for video) buttons on it, will now be a part of the screen, with relevant buttons. No more tap to show the pause button and another to acutally pause.
And oh... the S8 screen is 18.5:9... ;-)
