Before the launch everyone have already prepared themselves for the announcement of both Galaxy S8 and S8+ phones; new phones receive a completely unique design, and will be the South Korean company’s first even gone without separate home button under the screen, so the leading brand could not leave those high quality graphics shell unaffected. Brace yourself now! We have a lot more to share with you.

In Canada and UK, promotional websites were launched in support of attention from users to the NextGalaxy. Pages are completed in a single layout design and include a no of questions regarding new phones, which make the reveal of the S8 more interesting. Now users are asked about what they like most on the Galaxy phones, what are their expectations about camera, design, performance etc?
The analyst confirmed the characteristics and the launch date when it goes on sales. Just like the previous, this year Samsung launches two versions – one with 5.8 inches screen size and S8+ featuring 6.2 inches larger sizes. It is reported that the resolution of the displays will be 2960 by 1440 pixels. At the same time, the markets in the United States, Japan and China are probably are supplied with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, while other received Exynos 8895 chipset on the board. In some regions likely to possess 6GB of RAM for 256GB and 4GB of RAM for 64/128GB.
It is also reported that the resolution of the Next Galaxy primary camera is 12MP and front camera is 8MP. It is predictable that the battery capacity will be 3,000mAh same as before, but S8 Plus received 3,500mAh capacity.
The most awaiting phone of the year 2017 is all set to hit the markets and now its official launch date unveiled in Canada April 28, 2017. We came to acknowledge such information after courtesy of “senior supply chain source sharing information with Canadian cell phone carrier plans”. It is not the first time! Usually Samsung launched specific career plans for UK, Europe and Canada. Such information about the release date is more valuable after @evleaks had confirmed this launch date for US carriers.
So what will surprise us this time? We pick up edge to edge all information about the Galaxy S8 for those worth waiting. The launching/release date of the S8 phone is expected to be held in February 2017, while novelty will spread out already that there are possibilities we see the phone in 2016 MWC take place in Barcelona. Most likely the 8th edition of Galaxy S series comes with traditional two variations “S8 and S8 Edge with curved screen”. In accordance with the available details, there is Snapdragon 830 chipset packed (Exp.), as an alternative there is own made Exynos 7420 chipset which is 9th gen chipset made by South Koreans. However, like its predecessor models, it is the only flagship right now whose popularity enables you to make comparison with the most advertised smartphone iPhone 7. You can make comparison of Samsung Galaxy S8 Price in Canada include Toronto, Calgary and Montreal; right now you have to wait for the official release of the device.
April 2017 Release Date
6GB RAM, 5.2 inches 2160×3840 pixels, microSD and IRIS Scanner
Best guess: CAD $850
In spite of all that, many people rightly are worth waiting to know about the upcoming Galaxy S phone, there is some possible information we know so far. But before that, we can make a functional analysis on its predecessor, Samsung S7, based on it, we predict the nearer features upgrade and parameters. And then we will see whether Samsung developers may able to surprise all consumers in reality or not. Design wise, is not likely to experience major modifications before, but this time there are some recognizable changes from the base version for more comfortable handling and viewing.
The screen size of the phone is 5 inches likewise the difference among both based model and Curved screen model. The screen is still large enough for room and offering best viewing experience. The number of pixels does not need much modifications, it is likely best phone display ever carry out in Samsung device.
It is pleasant that the new Galaxy S series has not followed the ways of increasing the useless numbers of pixels just, manufacturers focused on refining the quality of shots in different conditions within the same Pixels. It looks like the tradition will continue, instead of 21MP camera pixels we see a 16MP camera with all enhanced capabilities as well there are some predictions to pack dual lens.
Water Proof Housing
7 November 2016 Updates: It would seem that after the iPhone 7 releases with a water resistant enclosure Samsung also look forward to include the same feature with the same capabilities in its next major flagship. Of course, there is the same certification included with the Galaxy S7 and Note 7 before. Samsung novelty is now waterproof; there are many reasons Android customers should pay attention to the new Galaxy phones. The novelty details about the protection are expected to available later in February 2017 after its official release. Most likely, there are no more Galaxy Active versions we are going to see in 2017 with special protective cases. In conclusion the protection will remain same – IP68 certification, improving the security level of military standard so no need of any special protective cases and covers.
CPU & Memory
According to available information so far, at least we know that the S8 new phone carries the advanced Snapdragon 830 chipset; probably the first phone carries the newest chipset in 2017. However, this probability is not 100 percent guaranteed because maybe Exynos 7420 chipset will be included because of less power consumption to resolve overheating issues.
So far we know that there is a special international edition with Exynos Chipset and other model carries SoC chipset. The sources claim that the amount of RAM on the Galaxy S8 phone is not less than 8GB RAM (may be 6GB RAM). How it can be practical is actually a mystery and time will tell the truth. Now few of the Chinese flagships such as OnePlus 3, Xiaomi Mi Mix have 6GB of RAM, but no benefits in such amount of RAM in performance boats. But, not a doubt the built-in storage of up to 256GB will please many users, not need to store data in Cloud because no one has everywhere 4F or WI-Fi.
Battery Life Time
Everyone for sure first wants to know how much the new phone life is. After Note7, South Korean manufacturers surely put larger battery capacity on the s8 which may leave 3,000mAh capacity; it is hard to tell how they manage with it if they want to keep themselves in the race of thinnest Smartphones like the iPhone, HTC and Sony. But the new fast charging wireless technology is used before by many manufacturers, to charge more rapidly. Suitable 4,000mAh battery will be the best option for Samsung to get back the confidence level of their users. But to install such capacious battery there is need of some compromises to make phone thicker or larger.
For the next signature model in 2017, the design does not undergo with major changes; may be less bezel screened. According to the latest rumors the diagonal size of the base version is 5inches, the screen is still larger compare to many rivals and still produces a good viewing experience with higher pixels and resolution. The company tries to keep the S series compact enough to use with single hand and fit in a pocket easily. As we take a look at the 2016 flagship, the device has a function to display the date and time known as “Always On”. Likely to feature the same technology and include also solar batter cells to handle such high pixels and AMOLED screen technology.
Thanks to the new launch Galaxy C series, which lead us to the improve camera quality with less camera pixels. It seems that the trend to put a lower pixel lens will continue in 2017, and instead of 30MP camera lens manufacturers uses a 16MP sensor with more enhanced capabilities; after all dual lenses predicted to put on the Galaxy S8 rear camera. The level of the secondary camera can be increased from 5MP to 8MP now, which might be an impressive part of selfie lovers.
As we all know that the predecessor Note 7 phones carries advanced security features; IRIS scanner and fingerprint scanner both features included in the next Galaxy. Thus, the user can more securely make online payments and transactions as well as get access on their phone in a whole different way. Right now there is no update of the Android 8.0 operating system so it is expected to have Android 7.0 or 8.0 running on the board.
What Will Be The Surprise?
We see some of the features before such as retina eye scanner, 4K recording capabilities, Gorilla Glass covering and quick charge 3.0. For the most focused phone of the 2017, South Korean manufacturers give wired charger capability to charge Galaxy S8 within 30minutes. The concept aims to make such Smartphone that is capable of doing things that never before. When it comes to technology, we all know there is some major updates regarding to its Display features, but also wide range of payment option through Samsung mobile phone is available with Android Pay/ Samsung Pay.
Following are the major features expected to be a part of new Galaxy phone:
• Quick Charge 3.0
• 6GB of RAM with 256GB storage (micro SD cardslot)
• IP68 Water Resistance
• IRIS scanner (retina eye scanner)
These days many bloggers are quite busy on writing about new gadgets released on CES 2017 event; rumors now comes up with the new content about Galaxy S8 release date Canada these days. South Korean likely to launching the new S8 phone in April 18, 2017; that date is quite late as compare to its traditional dates. Further, there is another allegedly leaked details rolling out internet about how the new Samsung phone will look like.
According to some rumors reports company all ready to introduce this phone in MWC 2017 held on March but rapidly change its plan, reports about the big changes in their design is possible.
Have a look on this leaked image of Samsung upcoming phone:
If this phone was the new “Galaxy S8” it is all clear that we going to see bezel less phone featuring screen all over the front panel instead Samsung logo is still there but home screen button is now hidden under the screen. Keep this in your mind, there is no official information by Samsung about its design change, it might possible the thing shown on this image is not real.
