Keep the suspense was not easy.

According to representatives of Samsung, in the past they had the bitter experience of information leakage about product design and business strategy, which was leaked in China. What kind of question is unknown, but at the time the manufacturer had failed to keep secret the details of Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. A month before presentation, the network appeared the official renderings and key features, and some devices even flared on the Dubai Bulletin Board where they could buy a week before the premiere.
What will be the new flagship of Samsung

It remains to be seen whether the Samsung Galaxy S8 all-new design, but some sources are predicting rejection hardware “Home” button — it may be replaced by a fingerprint scanner located directly under the glass front panel of the smartphone. The front camera will get the focus, according to some, the main module will be dual (as in Huawei P9 or iPhone 7 Plus), but so far this is only speculation.

About the display of the flagship go contradictory rumors. Some sources say that Samsung has already started production of panels with a diagonal of 5.1 inches and 5.5 inches, others point at a possible exit models with the 5.7 – and even a 6.2-inch screen. One thing is for sure — the company is not in a hurry to adopt 4K resolution and remains on QHD, but may abandon the scheme Diamond PenTile in favor of the RGB pixels. This will improve picture clarity in virtual reality (in normal conditions “looseness” of the image is only visible on Full HD). Probably all versions of the gadget will be equipped with curved screens (in Note 7, Samsung engineers picked the best the curvature of the faces so that they cut into the palm).

Samsung Galaxy S8 will also receive scanner iris of the eye, and the capacity of the battery if increased, slightly. However, the Doze mode in Android 7 Nougat will help to increase the battery life of flagships. By the way, despite the situation with the review of the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung decided not to close range phablet and promises to release Galaxy Note 8 next year.
