Does anyone know if it will have a stylus pen capabilities like the galaxy note 7?
AnonD-645188, 06 Mar 2017Why the camera should stay the same as the s7?With a bigger screen+smaller bezels being the focus this year for the S8, they can skip on improving other areas such as camera, ram, battery, while doing the expected standard yearly upgrade to speed. I don't think Samsung will be brave enough again to pull-a-S6 and remove features to just add them again the following year to make it look like having more innovation than it really does.

4 Samsung with Hardware problems..? What a joke

Tick - S6

Tick - S8

I owned an S7, then downgraded to an S6 for logistical reasons, and was very impressed that even a year or two since it was launched, the S6 was fast, stable and the camera as fast and capable as the S7. It didn't seem like a step down from the S7, perhaps due to software optimisation since launch? (Only negative was lack of S6 waterproofing.) Samsung seam to finally have reached a plateau where the devices are fast enough, so they can now focus on innovation such as more advanced biometrics and AI, as they seem to be doing.

So you get 6% better battery from SoC ... BUT, the screen is bigger (so it consumes more than the last phone) *and* the battery is (much) smaller. Total battery would be less.
Low RAM also means a slower phone than many 2017 flagships ... yeah, I'm not paying top dollar for looks alone (even them are not too good, the phone is too tall, they should have used 17:9 like mi mix did, it would give them better proportions)... oh well.

Anonymous, 06 Mar 2017What would be fun is, all the leaks don't look anything like the final S8.Yeah, even the official press invitation will be wrong haha
Anonymous, 06 Mar 2017It may not have the most ram but it will have the faster and must efficient soc with ram that ... moreMaybe, but I'm not waiting on stuff like 4K, iris scanners and bezel less designs. I want my powerefficient specs with great handling (so without p'palmrecognizion') and I also prefer little less personal data for big brother and the interwebs.
Anonymous, 06 Mar 2017Low ram, low battery. Not a flagship. It looks impressive though... I would never pay so much ... moreIt may not have the most ram but it will have the faster and must efficient soc with ram that consumes 45% less power.
Latest and greatest chip, new design, best in class mobile display, most advanced software on device. Among the best in camera.
Still sounds like a flagship to me.
Just could have been better. And I'm not to worried about the battery, you would think they would have used a little more. Maybe they are just being cautious.
[deleted post]Bear with it. Just until the end of the month. After that, starting from next month we will get Note 8 leaks every single day. Well, I am more inclined to see Galaxy X1 leaks instead. Not looking forward at anything for the first half of the year. All the good stuff is usually at the second half of the year.
[deleted post]This is how they will make billions out of these stupid phones
you need to put something on the Samsung leakage everyday has leak and its getting annoying.
What would be fun is, all the leaks don't look anything like the final S8.
