afs, 27 Jul 2016IrDA (Infrared Data Association) in neededIt should also come with a high power green laser pointer. Booya!
A 4K resolution on such small screen is a waste of money. Everyone knows human eye cannot detect more than 600 PPI (approximately) and this device is getting 800 PPI!!! With the Galaxy S7, QHD is more than enough, with his 520 PPI, you really need to get very close or use a VR headset to see the pixels. I would like to see a Galaxy Tab with such resolution. Maybe the Galaxy View....
I suggest that Samsung must boost its next S8 far because we all know that apple bring so much improvement on there iphones mentioning there S model that has the biggest improvement. Samsung must boost its own chipset in 80% or 90% cpu performance and great gpu for a higher framerate in gaming
They better add IR Blaster to Galaxy S8. That was one nifty piece of hardware on Galaxy S4 that should totally make a comeback.
MaLiNa, 29 Jun 2016I will not buy another Samsung "flagship" phone until they return removable batteries. S6 ... moreI agree. I only upgraded from my S2 to the S4 6 months ago because the S2 finally broke but the S4 had my basic requirements of removable battery, Micro SD slot and good performance against its peers of the time. I was waiting for a significant leap forward and definitely welcome waterproofing as someone who has now been constantly traveling the world for more than 4 years and recently caught in a tropical downpour in the the amazon. Still using the S4 happy to have a thicker phone with larger removable battery and expandable memory slot. Also miss the radio in the S2. I change countries every 1 to 3 months and usually don't have internet access and not interested in extra bluetooth type add ons so would also welcome a inbuilt radio.
TechnoExpert, 15 Jul 2016According to the rumors I have heard; s8 will have snapdragon 830, double cameras at the back,... moreOIS on the rear dual cameras or on the front facing (selfie) camera? or both
So I see the rumored s8 is still opting for a non-removable battery -_-
it's better to use the featured phone, Rather than the Smartphone, Im just trying provoking you guys. ^_^ heheheeh
According to the rumors I have heard; s8 will have snapdragon 830, double cameras at the back, 4k display, 6 gb ram, 64 gb internal memory, an iris scanner and also 8 mp front camera with ois.
Don't forget this page is a collection of rumours and suppositions.. Best guess if you like..
The dimensions will be similar to s6/s7.. (to fit in VR). Higher resolution display also needed for VR. The battery size is suggested at 3000mah as the size of battery that fits inside the dimensions that as mentioned need to fit VR. The clues are already there you just gotta wait for a final product to confirm or deny any suspicions. Although I've seen comment that it will need quite a large amount of available RAM to adequately power a higher resolution display.
Dual pixel sensor technically has 24mp half of which deal with autofocus..
S-5 IS GREAT,.. s6, s7, note5, note7 all having no INFRA RED, FM, dedicated SD CARD SLOT, REMOVABLE BATTERY. Now samsung is doing the same in S8. Wonder what is the meaning for "flagship" models.
I will not buy another Samsung "flagship" phone until they return removable batteries.
S6 and S7 were gorgeous phones but nothing more. To an S5 user, they were downgrades, phones with fewer options, in prettier skins. And I see this fashion continues... how disappointing.
Samsung used to copy the best of Apple. Now it copies the worst.
It's just not worth it. At Galaxy S-range price level, I expect a high-performance phone with at least 2 years durability (average length of a phone subscription contract). And I've yet to see a built-in battery that doesn't become useless within a year. If I can't change the battery, I'm not buying the phone. End.
