The thing that so many commentors seem to fail to realize: The S8's are going to be the same physical size as the S7's. By drastically reducing the size of the bezels, the S8's will be able to pack 5.7" and 6.2" screens without making the phones bigger than the S7's.
I'll be interested to see if they do the rumored Galaxy X - the phone with the foldable screen. Regardless, as long as they offer 8GB RAM + 256GB internal storage + SD card, and have all the other things that GSM currently lists here, the S8 should be a huge success. The time when Sammy can get away with minimal specs has passed. Go big or go home!
Yes, sure ... Samsung has sold very minimal units of its Note series or the S7 Edge. A tremendous failure of sales ... Phones with 4.7'' displays like the Xperia z5 compact, show which is the key to success! Haha !
This phone is going to be awesome.With a ram of 6/8GB it will have out done some desktops due to its performance.
This phone is going to be amazing. Eight gigabytes of RAM sounds revolutionary and the Snapdragon 835 processor is just beautiful. When this phone comes out, I'm gonna buy it immediately!
Samsung must do the do the s8 has 5.1 max and 4.8 inches for some users.. S series must be not more than 5.1.. or from this moment .. samsung is going to fail again
YahiaBouilfane, 16 Jan 2017A really good phone but come on 6.2" .No!!!! that's too biiig I would get the normal S8 rather... moreHave you seen the xiomi mi mix its a 6.0' inch display but it's quite a regular size phone its gonna be the same as that with the s8 plus because look at the actual size of the screen to the actual size of the phone itself
A really good phone but come on 6.2" .No!!!! that's too biiig I would get the normal S8 rather than the S8 Plus.
Anonymous, 15 Jan 2017It's too bigNo, its too small. Could be easily 7" with the framesize of an LeTV Le Max.
darwindarwim, 16 Jan 2017first off this phone isn't 4k... and no i can clearly seen the difference between my 5.5 inch ... moreThe j7 prime's 720p display is nearly 5x worse than an quad HD display. You won't have any issues, and if you're REALLY stingy, the note 8 will be 4K. Plus only one other phone on the market has a 4K screen and not really...
My heart is fallen love with this phone please lauch as soon as possible with dual sim , glossy black color, separate micro sd card slot, over 4000amah battery with other latest features as soon as possible. Sammy don''t let try to cover loses of Note 7 devices from this phone. release phone as low as you can. then only you can have good sales and huge market share. available this phone in Sri Lanka ASAP. hope this will launch in MWC 2017.
Mobilemaster, 15 Jan 2017Yes, I believe it is pointless to view 4K content on such a small screen, but on TV's things a... morefirst off this phone isn't 4k... and no i can clearly seen the difference between my 5.5 inch 1080p a7 and 5.5 inch 720p j7.i can see the individual pixels in the j7. is just horrible
Samsung obviously loves to make their flagships bigger and bigger.. no wonder by 2020, we might be seeing a 7"-7.5" Samsung Galaxy Edge with 4K displays and a 12GB RAM. Hahaha!
Gerrgo, 15 Jan 2017Megapixel is not everything but one of main thing haha.. we cant deny that year by year smartp... moreBy 2020, we'll have a 16MP iPhone. Apple used the same 12MP cameras for the 6, 6s and 7 series.Before, it was 8MP on the 4S, 5, 5s and 5c. That means maybe the 7s will have 12MP and the 8 will have 16.
Glorious 2160p at 60fps are yet to arrive. I will look forward to that heavily.
I really hope this is a reality.
I've been waiting for a true flagship phone to replace my Xperia Z Ultra for a year now.
To all those who say it's too big: no, it's the size it is, and if it's not for you, move on. There's other phones you might like that others would say are too small.
