My Galaxy S7 can eat all sony high end (supposed) devices for breakfast at once it's still the most powerful phone out there now imagine what the new coming S8 is capable to do!
So the processor will be beast then. Even if not full fime uhd, I cannot wait to compare battery performance to Z5p - it was very bad.
Anonymous, 20 Jun 2016S8 UHD... And S7 being best phone for VR... A typical uninformed fanboy talking. Sony Xperia ... moreYou are wrong brother... Z5 premium has UHD screen but as much as I know it only utilize it when a 4k content is on the screen. If I am a fan boy then only because they are the best.i do have Z5 compact too because that is the best compact phone available in Android. So still stands on my words ##S7 with gearVR is the best VR solution with phones##
UHD Display... hmm and more mega specs, i think is very 3x Expensive then S7 or S6 and one else why not using SUHD Display..
Dual cameras are okay. They can provide an extra wide angle like the G5 which is simply amazing. However, I'm against the UHD setup, which is a wastage of battery and the high resolution display will tend to give you an "awesome" picture clarity, when you are using camera/video, But in real it is not, just normal. It was my experience using the sony's first Xperia Series. The images that I shot looked awesome in the phone screen and when transferred to a PC, it looked horrible.
galaxyS7, 20 Jun 2016Don't be a stupid by posting things you don't know.. S7 is already 576 ppi. It's not the best ... moreS8 UHD... And S7 being best phone for VR...
A typical uninformed fanboy talking. Sony Xperia Z5 Premium has 4K screen and is best phone for VR. And UHD on S8 is likely copied from Sony.
Shazzy B, 20 Jun 2016This is why the phone industry is so messed... The S7 just came out a few months ago, and now ... moreYou dont need to know but Samsung wants to let everybody knows. So, you can just shut up and close your browser if you dont need to see this.
This is why the phone industry is so messed... The S7 just came out a few months ago, and now there are already rumours about the S8. We don't need to know yet.

yes to copy the designs of iphones 7 plus..samsung will do it obviously.
Julliard, 20 Jun 2016We already habe Xperia Z5 Premium with 806ppi. What are you complainibg about? Just admit it, ... moreThey are neither; they just want to have excessive, unnecessary specs just to make themselves feel superior and bashed other companies.

I have a Sony z5 compact too.i Put z5c in a VR headset it was awful..... that's how I know how iphoners feel about VR headsets. They simply hate it or anything they don't have.... Samsung giving what customers wants while apple gives iPhone then order customers to like it... That's the difference........
Bring back: 1. IR Blaster 2. RDS Radio 3. Proper separate MicroSD Card slot....
then I shall remain in the Samsung camp.
Crapshoot, 20 Jun 2016Currently even the Galaxy S7 edge with ultra HD display can't give the best VR experience.. We... moreSamsung consistently use QHD for their flagship, and so far no Samsung Galaxy have UHD.
Upping the resolution cost battery life and more importantly in VR, it'll cost FPS in VR.
VR have absolute minimum FPS to make it usable and not causing nausea. Samsung may have sidelined the UHD as they wait more powerful and less power consuming SoC that able to support VR in UHD.
to make some innovation, samsung should bring triple camera setup with at least 5K resolution display
Stondec100, 20 Jun 2016Completely agree. The IR blaster is a much more useful feature than a higher resolution. The c... moreis this just a rumour , AGAIN , purely to stop Samsung buyers from buying the new Note 7, putting people in promise land, to make them wait to spend money on Samsung, .... the phone industry holds its breath to see if they can halt samsungs popularity. Note is looking good.

What are you complainibg about? Just admit it, you don't even have the money to buy it even if Samsung or Sony made a smartphone with more than 850ppi. I also wonder whether all the people complaining here are absolutely rich; they keep demanding stuff that most average people can't even afford.
