Samsung Galaxy S8 might one up Xiaomi Mi Mix with an all screen design next year


Samsung is under pressure from Chinese smartphone makers who have graduated beyond basics with Xiaomi's Mi Mix showing the future of a Chinese design. With Apple iPhone adopting OLED displays in the interim future, Samsung has a big task on its hand. Bloomberg says Samsung is currently targeting March release for Galaxy S8 but the launch could get delayed till April. The delayed launch resonates with a similar report from Wall Street Journal.

Samsung is going all guns blazing for the launch of its next flagship, Galaxy S8 early next year. The company has lot to deliver especially after the failure with Galaxy Note7. As always, the rumour mill is abuzz with what Galaxy S8 might look like and it is turning to be another great design.

Samsung Galaxy S8 will reportedly launch with a bezelless display making room for more real estate and immersive viewing experience. Samsung already has the best display technology in the market and use of a bezelless panel will only enhance the experience. "The new phones will only come with wraparound displays using organic light-emitting diode technology," reports Bloomberg.

Samsung is reportedly planning to introduce Galaxy S8 only with curved displays and not standard version. The smartphone is likely to come in two screen sizes - 5.7-inch and 6.2-inch - and likely to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor. Samsung Galaxy S8 is also rumoured to feature virtual assistant based on Viv platform. The assistant is likely to be triggered by a dedicated button and will feature integrations with third party apps.
