Samsung Galaxy S8 may have edge-to-edge “infinity” display
Samsung has announced it will wait till after Mobile World Congress to release the Galaxy S8
Samsung's next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8, is rumoured to have an edge-to-edge "infinity" display, according to The Guardian.
Anonymous sources have provided detailed information to The Guardian stating that the two variants, dubbed Dream and Dream 2, will have screen sizes in the 5" and 6" region which will curve around the left and right sides on the device. The sources also said that the "infinity" display will cover a large proportion of the screen indicating there may not be enough space for the Samsung logo.
Furthermore the sources confirmed that the devices will in fact have a headphone jack, despite reports from last year stating it would not. Also, the Galaxy S8, is expected to feature iris scanning biometric technology, this was also featured in the doomed Galaxy Note 7.
The Guardian also reported that the Galaxy S8 will have a duo-pixel and will have object recognition embedded into the camera. The insides will have Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835, which is being built with Samsung's 10nm processes. Plus, expandable storage of up to 256GB in capacity and a new version of Samsung's Gear VR headset and Gear 360 camera.
Samsung typically unveils its next flagship device during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, however the South Korean giant has revealed it will not be showcasing the Galaxy S8 this year and instead may be announced after. Samsung's mobile head DJ Koh released the news but did not state when Samsung will launch its next smartphone.
