Galaxy S8: Samsung is officially revealing details of their next big thing
Samsung is trying to divert everyone's attention away from the Galaxy Note 7-disaster, maybe that is why the company is being more open than usual about the current state of development for the Galaxy S8, their next flagship phone, that is being scheduled to launch during the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, Spain around February 2017. During a conference call with analysts last week, the vice president of mobile Lee Kyeong-tae revealed a few interesting tidbits about what we should be expecting from the next Galaxy S-generation.
Apparently Samsung will outfit the Galaxy S8 with a new and better camera and is assuring everyone that it will feature a slick design. It may be a further developed "edge-design" or even a totally new one, similar to the bezel-less appearance of the Xiaomi MIX for instance. Apart from design and camera, Lee also mentioned that Samsung will integrate an artificial intelligence service into the Galaxy S8, similar to what Google did with the Pixel and Pixel XL by integrating the Google Assistent. Samsung recently acquired A.I. know-how thanks to the acquisition of Viv Labs, the startup that is also responsible for Apple's Siri originally.
Of course security is on everyone's minds these days when it comes to Samsung phones so the company reassured everyone, that they are doing everything they can to avoid any battery related overheating problems in the Galaxy S8. It was revealed recently, that Samsung even postponed development of the Galaxy S8 for two weeks to get to the root of the Note 7's battery problems.
