However, despite Samsung's tight-lipped over the matter, these rumored features have great possibility to land on the 2017 flagship smartphone.
Among of the rumored features is the OLED display screen that will be wrapped in a bezel-less body. According to CNET, this feature implies a full-screen display that will fully eliminate the home button in replacement of virtual one as well as the integration of fingerprint sensor under the screen display.
Furthermore, the said full-screen display will have a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels QHD essential requirement to achieve a 4K display for virtual reality purposes. But one of the most notable feature the upcoming phone could feature is the foldable display which is considered to change the smartphone industry landscape.
On the other hand, internal specs of the phone is said to include an 8GB of RAM coupled with Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 chipsets for the processor. It is also likely for the Galaxy S8 to feature an X16 LTE smartphone modem for faster mobile data performance, according to Digital Spy.
