The launch of Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ remains one of the most anticipated smartphone launches of 2017. Rumours about the designs and specifications of the two smartphones have been doing rounds on the social media since a long time. Tech insiders too have been generous enough to keep us on our toes by teasing the anticipated features time to time. And just 10 days ahead of the official launch, Samsung has joined the party by teasing the concept of the upcoming smartphone on its Phillippines website.
The homepage of the Samsung Phillippines website shows the chassis of the smartphone with a message that hits towards the possible features. The message also takes us to a poll that the site is hosting on its platform to keep the users engaged. The poll asks the users to select from a list of features that they wish to see in their ‘Next Galaxy’. The list includes– a superior camera, enhanced battery life, powerful gaming performance, enhanced VR experience and a stylish design.
The most interesting part is the concept that confirms some of the features that have long been rumoured to get featured in the Samsung’s next flagship smartphone. Galaxy S8 is likely to have a bezel-less display wherein the home button is integrated into the display screen.
Interestingly, Samsung Italy website has confirmed that the two smartphones will feature Samsung’s Bixby virtual assistant. Galaxy S8 and S8+ would also feature 3D touch much like Apple’s iPhone 6, giving users greater mobility and flexibility in using hand gestures to use the phone.
Samsung will unveil Galaxy S8 and S8+ at an event in the New York City on March 29, 2017.
