MWC 2017: Samsung Focus on New Tablets in Absence of Galaxy S8


As you can see on the right, the Galaxy S8 does indeed have slim bezels, rounded corners, and seemingly no home button. The Galaxy S8 is believed to have a 3,000 mAh non-removable battery, while the S8 Plus will supposedly include a 3,500 mAh battery. If the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge is still winning awards, it's no wonder Samsung reportedly feels confident with opening sales of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.

We have known for some time that the upcoming Galaxy S8 will sport a radical near bezel-less design with dual curved edges and the image confirms the same.

The Galaxy X is expected to come with high-end features such as a 10nm processor, possibly the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and 6GB RAM to provide the processing power needed for such a smartphone.

Of course, the present iris scanner on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 would be featured in the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 as well. But based on the teaser and tagline, it all points to the Samsung Galaxy S8. Samsung Pay and security via Samsung's Knox is also featured. While lots of speculations have been popping up over the last few weeks regarding the upcoming flagships, a number of supposed leaked photos have also made rounds. Hopefully, however, Samsung will allow users to change the order of the buttons as they wish.

As for the fingerprint scanner, it seems to have moved to the back of the Samsung offerings next to the rear camera module.

Samsung might not be flapping its new phone around, but other people surely are. The two versions came out to be 5.8 inches and the S8 Plus with giant 6.2-inch AMOLED screen into its glass and metal shell, with finger-print sensor.

According to a Korean website English ET, the highly anticipated Samsung flagship phone will be launched at an event in NY on March 29.

Wireless charging, Samsung Pay and security via Samsung's Knox will also be included.
