According to leaked details on Weibo, the Galaxy S8 will feature a 5.5-inch 4K (2160×3840 pixels) Super Amoled display and will boast of an impressive pixel density of 806ppi. The tipster adds that the Galaxy S8 will be powered by the company’s in-house Exynos 8895 SoC. Much like some recent high-end smartphones, the Galaxy S8 is also said to sport massive 6GB of RAM. Notably, Samsung’s Galaxy S8 won’t be the company’s first smartphone featuring 6GB of RAM as the Galaxy C9 Pro was recently unveiled with the same memory.A previous report claimed that the Galaxy S8 will come with 16-megapixel and 8-megapixel dual-rear camera setup. The camera on the Galaxy S8 is believed to click decent images in low-light. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is also said to get rid of the signature home button seen on earlier flagship Galaxy phones. Other changes expected on the smartphone include bezel-less design. There are rumours that suggest Samsung is working on a new design where the front with no home button will be filled with all glass and will also incorporate fingerprint-sensing display.
However, a recent report suggested that Samsung Galaxy S8 was reportedly delayed by two weeks as engineers were working to find Galaxy Note 7 fault.
