News about the Galaxy S8 keeps pouring in, with the latest one bringing with it an impressive set of specifications. Samsung’s next flagship offering will have to be a knockout for people to forget its Galaxy Note 7 fiasco and the brand may just deliver on those expectations if the latest Weibo leak proves to be accurate.
Serial leakster KJuma has posted a detailed chart comparing the specification differences between the recently-released Mi Note 2 and upcoming Galaxy S8 Edge. Both feature dual-curved screens, though the latter will apparently sport a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED 4K (3840 x 2160p) display with a whopping pixel density of 806ppi.
The high pixel count serves to lay some credence to the rumor that the Samsung phone will be VR-ready. Another major feature which may be coming the handset’s way is a gargantuan 6GB or 8GB of RAM. The latter is unheard of in a phone till date. The company notably announced an 8GB mobile RAM recently, so it isn’t entirely out of the question.
The Galaxy S8 Edge is also shaping up to be a processing powerhouse. As per the report, the brand is going to continue its strategy of different chipsets for different markets. One variant may get a Snapdragon 830 SoC, while the other one could get an Exynos 8895 CPU. Both are supposedly being made on the next-gen 10nm process.
Finally, the leak suggests that the Galaxy S8 Edge will be announced on February 26 and hit availability in March. The former date notably falls in line with Samsung’s annual tradition of announcing its flagship phones ahead of the MWC.
