With the Samsung Galaxy S8 release date being only a few weeks away, the rumors about the new device are at an all time high.
Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy S8 will be released in New York on March 29th. Last weekend at the Mobile World Congress, Samsung teased the new devices heavily. Up until now, all that the smartphone enthusiasts have been getting were unconfirmed rumors.
The videos show the devices having little to no bezels, and (as expected) no physical home button. This creates a lot of additional room for Samsung to work with. The edge to edge display may have similar features for notification like its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Unfortunately, both phones are covered in a plastic casing which is why we can’t have a clear look at some important details. Such as, where the fingerprint sensor may have been relocated.
Samsung also seems to be following in Apple’s footsteps by removing the 3.5mm headphone jack. This fuels the move to bluetooth connectivity especially for media purposes. There appears to be a USB-C connectivity port at the bottom of the device.
There is a lot of anticipation for the new Galaxy S8; as people are curious to know what new features Samsung will come up with. There are plenty of rumors already in different parts of the internet. Some suggest that the new phones may use Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge batteries. Although, it has been confirmed that Samsung is going to purchase batteries for their phones from Sony. Similarly, there is a lot of things that will be cleared up once Samsung officially announces the new phones.
