Samsung Galaxy S8 release date - Why UK users could face HUGE disappointment

Samsung Galaxy S8 release date - Why UK users could face HUGE disappointment

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 will reportedly sport a matte black finish, can shoot 1000fps videos, and use facial recognition to complete payments. But users have the option to expand the device's memory capacity up to 256 GB using its microSD card slot.

As mentioned earlier, the Galaxy S5 and the original Galaxy A7 are not the only Samsung devices to be receiving new Android Security patches this week.

As for the guts, built and strength of the device, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 features a 9.7-inch Super AMOLED QXGA display with a resolution of 2048×1536 pixels, and has an aspect ratio of 4:3.

The S8's predecessors are widely recognised as some of the best smartphones for photography on the market, and we fully expect Samsung's new flagship to deliver once again.

According to the report, the feature won't be available at the launch of the phone, but will be rolled out in the months afterwards. Both of these insights indicate, that the company may be planning to put up a virtual home button on its upcoming stunner with pressure sensitivity.

The phone would be able to use a variety of sensor to detect the phone's movement and subsequently check whether the user is facing the front camera. It will also feature several connectivity options, including WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, 4G LTE, USB Type-C, and Global Positioning System. Despite being used in a number of devices, the glossy finish is not without its faults.

Meanwhile, users are expected to find an improved battery technology in the Galaxy S8. The Korean electronics giant has relocated the fingerprint scanner to the rear of the handset after it ran out of time to implement the technology into the phone's display. This compares favourably to the leaked benchmarks of the Snapdragon 835 version of the Galaxy S8 which got a 1929 single core and 6084 multi core score.

Over the past few days, the Inquisitr has covered some of the hottest Galaxy S8 rumors, talking about possible specifications and features that may be included on Samsung's next big mobile phone release. Today more of them have been revealed, though.
