Samsung Galaxy S8, like every week, is again under the limelight. As per the latest round of rumours, the Galaxy S8 will feature dual stereo speakers, claims Fonearena. This might be similar to what we saw with HTC’s Boomsound which was initially powered by Beats by Dr. Dre. Interestingly, Samsung Galaxy S8 might boast HARMAN branding for these speakers after the South Korean giant recently acquired Harman International in an all-cash deal worth $8 billion.
Moreover, yesterday, a leak from Weibo leakster – Ice Universe revealed that the new Galaxy S8 will not feature dual-camera set up despite recent rumours claiming the opposite. Further, there is a possibility that Samsung might retain the camera module from the Galaxy S7. However, we are still putting our hopes for a better camera module if not a dual-camera set-up.
Recently, a leak from TechTastic claimed that the Galaxy S8 will come with 6GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. Now, there maybe other variants as well but one of them could be with the above-mentioned specs. If not, we expect the South Korean giant to include a microSD card slot for memory expansion.
Also, Samsung has strongly been rumoured to be working on an Artificial Intelligence based voice assistant. Interestingly, the assistant will come with both male and female voices with a separate name for each – Bixby for male and Kestra for the female voice. This leak has taken the limelight, thanks to a leaked EU patent which described Bixby and Kestra as “Computer software for enabling hands-free use of a mobile phone through voice recognition” and “Computer software used to process voice commands.”
Other rumoured specifications include two screen size variants namely 5.7 inches and 6.2 inches with either 2K or 4K resolution. The screen type will remain to be Super AMOLED and some rumours suggest that Samsung might go for a bezel-less display in one of the variants. On the inside, it is likely to be powered by an Exynos 8895 or Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 processor combined with 6GB RAM (as mentioned above). It is also likely to sport 3.5mm headphone jack and a USB Type-C port.
