Samsung Galaxy S8: What to expect

by birtanpublished on September 29, 2020

Hey what's going on guys it's Zack here with Android police hope you all are doing well so it's about that time of year where Samsung announces the latest addition to their S line of phones this next one obviously being the galaxy s 8 now after a very solid year with the s7

And s7 edge what kind of changes in upgrades can we expect to see in the SI well let's go ahead and take a look at what we know so far so the first thing comes as no real surprise and that's USB type-c so farewell micro USB it's been

Good it's time for us to move on to type C and this is something that we've already seen on the galaxy note 7 of course we already know what happened with that but Type C is the way pretty much everybody is going so it's gonna be

Great to have it on the s8 now right next to that USB type-c port you will thankfully find a three and a half millimeter headphone jack so Samsung is still hanging on to the headphone jack and that's something that I personally

Am very happy for next should also come as no surprise that's the iris scanner we also saw this on the galaxy note 7 and this is a feature I actually found to be sort of useful it could be considered gimmicky

But in all honesty it did work well and it provided a new form of security for your smartphone so it'll be nice to have it around and it will in fact be a better faster version than the one found on the note 7 alright so next up we have

Improvements to the hardware so as we've seen in leaks all over the place the s8 will have incredibly small bezels and this is something that we all welcome so we'll be getting a much better screen two-body o ratio not too sure how this

Will affect rigidity as far as drops go but we'll just have to wait and see the screen will also have curved corners so that'll be neat to check out definitely add something new now with those smaller bezels this will open the door for

Larger screens now some of you did fist pumps while the rest of you probably rolled your eyes at that one there will be two sizes and the regular s8 will have a 5.8 inch display and the larger plus-size model will have a 6.2 inch

Display whoa wait what at first this seems like Samsung is just gonna go crazy making these giant phones that you can't handle but don't worry they're actually just making the screens taller so instead of the regular 16 by 9 aspect

Ratio we're actually getting 18 and a half by 9 which not only means taller but it also means that the width will stay exactly the same so you're probably asking why the taller screens exactly well Samsung will be getting rid of the

Physical home button and the flanking touch sensitive capacitive buttons these will be replaced by fully virtual software-based keys is finally done with these same bun configuration they've been giving us for

A very long time and after using virtual buttons on Nexus phones LG devices and now the pixel I'm very excited to see how these work on a samsung phone I gotta admit it'll be weird at first but I'm looking forward to it but they

Will be in the same orientation as they were before with the back button on the right and the multitasking on the Left which is backwards in comparison to normal soft keys but what this also means is the relocation of the

Fingerprint scanner now this one is a bit of a head-scratcher for me I personally preferred the fingerprint reader to be on the back where the pixel has it but it looks like Samsung opted to go for a placement I've never seen

Before and that's right next to the camera and what I'm thinking is that this could be Samsung trying to get people to use the iris scanner instead of the fingerprint reader by putting the fingerprint reader in a more odd

Location I'm just hoping that this won't result in too many accidental camera smudges now a big addition to the s8 is something that I was definitely not expecting and that's Samsung decks basically you'll be able to toss your

Phone on some sort of dock connected to an external monitor providing you with a full desktop like experience now this is definitely going to be a huge addition to the essay and it's a great selling point it's something that is sure to

Make the s8 a much more versatile device but of course that hinges on whether decks will even be good or not we'll just have to wait and see but other than those things you can expect the regular specification bumps better cameras

Faster processor we're thinking that some of them will at least have these Snapdragon 835 but surprisingly enough one thing that won't be getting a bump will be the size of the batteries they will be sticking a 3000 milliamp hour

Battery in the regular s8 and in the Plus model they will be sticking a 3500 milliamp hour battery which is actually smaller than the one found in the s7 edge so I'm kind of nervous about that but we're just gonna have to wait and

See for that one as well so that pretty much does it for the video we're just about one month away from the official unveiling of the s8 but I want you guys to hit up the comments section and let me know what

You think about all of the things confirmed about the Galaxy s8 and if you'll be picking one up or not based on those leaks but anyway that's been it I hope you guys enjoyed the video if you did feel free to hit that like button
