Marky Mark1, 25 Sep 2016DUAL 12 MP camera is WAY better then 16 MP. First, to understand MP (Megapixels) More is not a... moreYeah. Pixel siƶe and aperture plays a huge role. It can also help recording slow motion at high framerates, where the camera barely has any time to capture all those still frames. Additionally, it will reduce the exposure time, without increasing light sensivity. This will reduce motion blur. Have you tried taking a burst-shot a highway with all of those fast cars? They will be barely blurred with an exposure time, which is that short.
In the darkness, being able to capture more light in the same amount of time is full of advantages anyway.
soriiy, 05 Oct 2016i'm too excited for the 4k 60fps camera, that will be the time to switch from iphoneMe too‼ Glorious, isn't it? ﴾read my previous comments﴿
Detail AND smoothness at once!
Space storage? We'll probably get 256 GB of internal memory. And the Note 2017 might also get 8 GB RAM together with LG V30 for ultimate power-users.
sarat meinam, 07 Oct 2016i hope galaxy s8 6", 92% screen ratio, dual 20mp f/1.4 aperture rear camera 3 optical zoom 8mp... moreA dual camera system with three times optical zoom is something, that I also thought about. But this double 56mm-Zoom from Apple already degraded aperture to F/2.8. Additionally, some video modes do not allow switching the lens during recording. However, I am looking forward to the GLORIOUS 2160p@60fps. I was always dreaming about 2160p@60fps. It combines this high amount of detail with smoothness. Ever compared a 30fps video with 60fps side-by-side? You will note a clear difference in smoothness. But combining this with such a high resolution is just glorious.
If we are lucky, we might get a Galaxy S8 with 1440p@120fps and 1080p@240fps and 720p@360fps and 480p@480fps. Those insane framerates could give users great fun.
But what I am really looking forward to is the 2160p@60fps mode. And maybe manual bitrate/framerate settings. Hopefully, they will place the camera into the corner, which allows holding a natural camera grip without a finger in your picture.
I think the technology should change much faster than this. I want to see a mobile phone which can do almost everything. :)

Is it just me or is 6 gb's of ram not enought for an S8 (8) !!!!!!!! GB's of ram 256gb storage with micro sd slot udp to 512GB!!! (Almost 800gb's) it IS supposed to be the "Dream"... 8 core 3GHz+ 16MP camera!!!! (2X 8), 8MP front camera (2nd camera=2X) 800+ PPI 2160P 60 fps, 1080P 120fps, 720P 240FPS IP6(8) (Too bad about android 7) and TESTED faster than Iphone 7! (Samsung, dont mess up qnd release the phone early, let the person get the amazing time at the regular bed time, not 6pm! $800 CAD Please!
Fugui, 03 Oct 2016You are asking the same things that sony's has All from the Z5 line-up indeed, except the more adapted SoC for VR, IR scanner, Samsung Pay and TouchWiz (hate it all you want, I really love it)
For the S8 generation, this is what I except:
4 variants (S8, EDGE, Premium and compact, all with the same specs except screen size and battery)
Single enhanced camera (12MP+, but a dual camera would trash the design)
8MP selfie cam
QHD for all except the compact, which would have FHD, and the Premium would get 4K.
4 to 8 GB of RAM, 4 for Compact, 6 for Normal and Edge, 8 for Premium.
Deca-core Exynos everywhere except the US (and, unlike the Note 7, put the Exynos variant in Canada), where they will get the newest SD.
And a lot of new functions and software optimization
The only smartphone brand I've ever owned is Samsung. If Sammy wants to keep it that way, here's my suggestions:
1.) The ASUS Zenfone 3 Deluxe is probably the most powerful phone in the world at the moment. Meet or beat that phone in every category with the S8. That means: 6+ GB RAM, 256+ GB internal storage, while keeping the SD card slot as well, Snapdragon 821 or better, 23 MP camera (just make your camera better than theirs or anyone else's, MP ain't everything and everybody pretty much knows that), 8 MP front facing camera.
2.) Make all of your Samsung apps uninstallable -- unless of course the phone won't work right without it. Why do you want to consume space on my phone for things I'm never going to use? But if I find a use for your app, then by all means make it easy to put it back.
3.) There's vicious rumor based on a patent that Samsung obtained about a year ago that Samsung was going to build a laptop-like docking station -- allowing Samsung users to convert their phone into a laptop on the fly whenever they want. Whether you do it with Google Chrome OS or Windows or something else, DO THAT. The modern smartphone has taken over for just about everything we use every day. About time to make it replace the personal computer already.
I own s7edge and I wait for s9 in 2018. Every 2 years is the best thing to save money for upgrade easily.
