The Galaxy S8 is just a few months away from making its official debut, which means the rumors and coming in thick and fast. The latest claims Samsung’s next-generation flagship will offer a new Snapdragon 835 processor and up to 256GB of internal storage.
With the exception of the Galaxy S6, which offered up to 128GB of storage, Samsung has traditionally launched its Galaxy S smartphones with modest internal storage and a microSD card slot. But sources in China claim the Galaxy S8 will give owners the best of both worlds.
Just like Apple’s latest iPhones, the Galaxy S8 is expected to offer up to 256GB of internal storage as well as a microSD card slot for adding more. Like the now deceased Galaxy Note 7, the handset is also expected to offer 6GB of RAM for seamless multitasking.
The source adds that the Galaxy S8 will be powered by Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 835 processor in some regions, and Samsung’s next-generation Exynos 9 Series chipset in others. Previous rumors have promised the device will also offer larger displays to appeal to Galaxy Note fans.
Samsung normally launches new Galaxy S devices at Mobile World Congress every February, but a recent report has claimed the Galaxy S8’s unveiling could be pushed back to April. This will give Samsung more time to ensure there won’t be another exploding battery debacle.
