The Galaxy S8 Will Feature 2K Resolution & Virtual Fingerprint Identification Claim Alleged Sources


It's a good day for the Samsung Galaxy S8. After a brief lull, the device is back with full swing. We're seeing a lot of information surface about a potential virtual assistant on the device. Samsung's behind other manufacturers in that arena, so looks like the company will change things on the S8. One thing it loves are hardware specifications. There's no device which is able to top the Galaxy S lineup in terms of hardware specifications. Today, some more details about the Galaxy S8's technical features have surfaced. Take a look below for more.

Alleged Supply Chain Rumors Claim 2K Screen Resolution And No Home Button For Galaxy S8

By the looks of things so far, the Galaxy S8 will be an impressive device in terms of specifications. Samsung's got a lot to make up for next year. The company's utter failure with the Note 7 has left a huge hole in its reputation and revenues. Customer opinion is at an all time low, particularly after the Korean tech giant also had to recall its washing machines earlier. The Galaxy S8 will more than make up for this, if we're to believe the rumor mill.

Even with potentially three months until the device is launched, the rumor mill has been very active for the Galaxy S8. The device has seen rumors of a 4K display, two screen sizes, a dual camera, an iris sensor and more. It just might be the first smartphone with four camera sensors on board as well, if the latter two make it on board. For resolution, some alleged supply chain information has surfaced today. It's turning out that Samsung hasn't placed any orders for 2K screens, if Ice_Universe is believed.

Galaxy Note 7 Users Might Be Lured to Upgrade to Galaxy S8 Thanks to Future Discounts

He's reporting that the company hasn't placed any orders for 4K screens, which most likely point towards the resolution not making it on the Galaxy S8. However, not all news is disappointing. The weibo user also suggests that no orders for home button parts have been placed either by Samsung. Given that we've heard earlier claims about an embedded home button on the S8 next year, this could point towards the feature bearing fruition.

It's been rumored that the Galaxy S8 will incorporate the home button inside the display, making for an 'invisible' fingerprint sensor. Just today, information about a dedicated AI button for the device has also surfaced. Sammy could skip the home button and replace it with an AI button, keeping things nice and simple for the S8. Other features for the device include an edge to edge display and 10nm processors on board. Let's just hope the Galaxy S8 is launched on time this year, with no malfunctions. Thoughts?
