Samsung is expected to release a new flagship phone next year, which will be called Samsung Galaxy S8. Reports reveal that the 2017 flagship phone will be revealed on Feb. 26, 2017.

The following are the leaked features of the 2017 device.


No Physical Home Button and Headphone Jack

Of course, Samsung will keep the competition with Apple close by doing the same moves and strategy. The former might also remove the headphone jack in Samsung Galaxy S8 to give way to USB-C port for charging and wired headphones. There might also be no physical home button as it will be embedded under the tempered glass.

Powerful Processors

Samsung Galaxy S8 will feature the Exynos 8895 chipset and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 chipset, which are undeniably powerful processors. According to Phone Arena, the former has a maximum speed of 3GHz and improves image processing by 70 percent.

Dual-Lens Cameras

The upcoming device has the power to take better photos than Samsung Galaxy S7 as it will have camera similar to that of a DSLR camera. Samsung Galaxy S8 will have dual-lens cameras just like Apple’s iPhone 7. It seems that Samsung does not want to be left behind in terms of phone features.

Powerful Graphic Chip

Samsung Galaxy S8 will be powered by the ARM Mali-G71 graphics chips, which will be responsible for the device’s better energy efficiency. Unlike the 2016 flagship phone, the upcoming device will have better performance.
