The Samsung Galaxy S7 is doing very well in the market, but it looks like Samsung is gearing up for their next big launch already. Samsung Galaxy S8 is already grabbing a lot of attention with its leaked specs.
No one knows whether Samsung is going to go with the same specs that have been let out, but interested consumers and tech experts are likely to believe they will until told otherwise by Samsung.
The buzz is that Samsung is going to go for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 processor for Samsung Galaxy S8. If the rumored chipset is used by Samsung Galaxy S8, then it will be the flagship device for the chipset.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 processor is going to be manufactured by Samsung and is going to be based on the 10nm architecture. Samsung is going to make it smaller, and this will help the company to save space and bring more power into the device.
Since the Snapdragon 830 processor allows 2K and 4K video recording along with the capacity to handle an 8GB RAM, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is going to contain all these features. The phone is going to double the performance of its predecessor, but since it is going to be powered by the Snapdragon 830 processor, it will cut down on its heating issue.
Christian Times reported that rumors suggest Samsung is likely to use the Exynos processor as well. Since Samsung has used both the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and the Exynos processor, there is a chance that the Samsung Galaxy S8 is going to make use of both these in different variants.
If Samsung goes ahead and uses the Exynos processor for Samsung Galaxy S8, then they will most probably go for the 10nm FinFET processor that will generate the same amount of power as the Snapdragon 830 processor. Some sources believe that Samsung is going to use the Exynos 8895, which is going to be the latest from Exynos since the Exynos 8890 is currently out in the market.
Since Samsung regularly goes for Snapdragon and Exynos processors, the users will be spoilt for choice when it comes to the processors in Samsung Galaxy S8. For those who want to experience the Exynos 8895 power, they can try their hands on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which is going to be powered by the Exynos 8893.
With the Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung is planning on introducing some innovative technologies in their smartphones. It looks like virtual reality could happen with Galaxy S8. The VR technology will need a powerful chipset and given that Samsung is thinking of either the Snapdragon 830 or the Exynos, there is a good chance that VR technology rumor is for real.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is believed to be code-named ‘Project Dram’ and is going to be very similar to the VR platform called Daydream that Google is going to launch with Nexus Marlin and Nexus Sailfish.
As Master Herald reported, the 10nm devices haven’t yet been manufactured for commercial purposes, but they are likely to be released by 2017 when the Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to become available.
Google had announced that they would have a certification standard for Android devices that will make the different products coming out universally compatible with each other when it comes to the virtual reality software and hardware in them. These products are expected to have a display and processor that will be deemed Daydream-ready along with a high-performance sensor. These features will limit the time of VR registering to 20 seconds.
