Galaxy S8 rumors reveal “Project Dream” codename

A new report claims to reveal the codename for the Galaxy S8.

Behind closed doors, the device goes by the name Project Dream, according to MyDrivers. That sounds pretty similar to Google’s upcoming virtual reality platform, Daydream, but it’s probably just a coincidence. It’s still unclear if Samsung plans to support Daydream or challenge it with the Galaxy S8 and other future flagship phones.

Samsung previously revealed a 4K 5.5-inch display designed specifically for virtual reality. The new panel quickly sparked speculation that it could show up in the Galaxy S8, but the company hasn’t made any official statement regarding those rumors.

MyDrivers notes that the Galaxy S8 could feature 6GB of RAM, dual rear camera, and processor built with a new 10nm process, though that seems to be pure speculation. It might also pack the same iris scanner allegedly coming to the Galaxy Note 7.

The Galaxy S8 won’t actually arrive until 2017. Based on Samsung’s recent product cycle we’re expecting the new phone to debut early next year, likely at or around Mobile World Congress in February.
