Samsung Galaxy S8: Launch, More Details and Photos; The main rumors
When we talk about industry analysts, Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities is one of the most reliable people on the market. This is because he periodically releases notes to brand investors – and investors need to have an idea of what will come to obviously invest or not more money.
Presentation on March 29 and sales on April 21
This time, Kuo set the launch of the next Samsung Galaxy S8 : April 21 on the shelves. That is, according to the analyst, we can expect the new top of the line Sammy for two weeks.

Like the other rumors already shown on the internet, the analyst also says that Samsung will launch two phones: the S8 and the S8 Plus. The first one will come with a 5.8 “screen and 3000 mAh battery, meanwhile the Plus delivers with a 6.2” screen and 3,500 mAh battery – on the same resolution for both: OLED with WQHD, 2960×2400.
In the showcase, what most calls attention in a device is the appearance. But, let’s say: the hardware is more important. Samsung knows this and, according to Kuo, will put Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processors in the US, Japan and China markets – Qualcomm’s most powerful processor. Already for Europe and other places in Asia (probably Brazil also enters here), Sammy will put the Exynos Series 9 8895.
Yes: there will be models with 6 GB of RAM
The South Korean manufacturer is expected to continue with 4GB of RAM, according to Kuo. But in two selected markets, South Korea and China, it “can sell the device with 6 GB RAM, because users in these two markets are very ‘sensitive’ about DRAM specifications.”
More details about Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus? Here’s a list of what investors have been told:
- Seven colors available: silver, gold, shiny black, matte black, blue, violet and pink
- Construction: on the back, you find “a main camera, camera flash, fingerprint sensor and heart rate sensor”
- Cameras: a combo of 12 MP in the rear and 8 MP front
- Launch: presentation on March 29 and launch on April 21
An interesting point that must exist in the Galaxy S8, according to Kuo, is a “computer mode”. This means that the S8 can be docked into an appropriate dock for use as a PC – because of the Type-C USB port, it supports high data transfer rates.
More salty than the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge
