Galaxy S8 May Finally Feature A UHD Display – First Phone From The Company To Feature It
While we sit here and wait for the imminent arrival of Galaxy Note 7, Samsung is already prepping to release the successor of its Galaxy S7 and S7 edge smartphone, Galaxy S8, and turns out that the upcoming device is going to be only the second smartphone on the planet to feature a 4K display.
Galaxy S8 4K Display Will Allow Users To Immerse Themselves In VR Content
In 2015, when Sony announced its Xperia Z5 Premium, it ended up becoming the first very smartphone to feature a 4K display. However, to conserve battery life, the smartphone did not always render content shown on the screen in 4K and as much as we want to believe this, Galaxy S8 will probably not allow this feature and will force users to watch every single detail in 4K. By now, you’ve probably realized that incorporating QHD resolutions is a tad overkill and Samsung intends to clear that barrier with the release of Galaxy S8.
4K resolutions will consume a heck of battery life so currently, we have no clue as to how Samsung is going to end up tackling one of the biggest issues plaguing smartphones. In the age of advanced smartphones, where you have so much computing power in the palm of your fingertips, a handset is dubbed as a great performer when it comes to battery life if it is able to last more than a 24 hour period. Despite the incorporation of Super AMOLED displays and a larger battery capacity inside Galaxy S7, we are having severe doubts over the overall battery life of Galaxy S8.
Currently, this is the only hardware detail that we know about Galaxy S8. Samsung has not announced the workings of a new SoC, but we are confident that Snapdragon 830 is probably going to be present inside the smartphone. The new mobile chipset will be processed on the 10nm FinFET architecture so looking at the efficiency of Snapdragon 820, we have to say that we’re really excited what Snapdragon 830 will be capable of delivering.
4K displays are not the cheapest of displays so we’re looking at premium priced handset, especially in those regions where users do not have the flexibility to purchase a device on monthly payments. Samsung’s primary aim is to drive VR growth to the roof so let us see what other features are going to be present. Are you excited to see a 4K display on Galaxy S8? Let us know your thoughts right away.
