Samsung's Galaxy S8 will be with us soon. The device has seen a lot of leaks so far. Short of visual information, nearly every detail for the device has surfaced.

We've seen statements from company officials claim that there won't be an expedited S8 launch either. Today, some statements from the company's Vice Chairman and heir apparent Lee Jae-Yong have surfaced. They provide some more details for the device. Take a look below to find out more.
Samsung Vice Chairman Claims Camera And Design Upgrades For Galaxy S8; Details Still Sketchy
Samsung's Galaxy S8 has seen a lot of information surface so far. The device will shake things up quite a bit for the lineup. For starters, we're hearing that Samsung will remove the standard 'flat' screen from the lineup completely. The Note 7 disaster have piled even more pressure on Samsung at the wrong time. There's very little the Korean manufacturer can do on the Galaxy S8 to compensate for earlier explosions.
Now, the company's vice chairman, Lee Jae-yong, who'll likely be the next president has made some comments about the upcoming Galaxy S8. Samsung's been pushed in a full scale crisis management mode, with company executives being quite loose lipped for the upcoming device. Lee's statements don't provide any new information and manage to confirm what you'd already expect from the device.
According to him, the Galaxy S8 will feature a 'slick design' and an 'improved camera'. So much for schematics, Lee. The rumor mill has provided us with much more information than his elaboration. For starters, the Galaxy S8 will be the first smartphone in history to feature four camera sensors. Not only will a dual camera sensor make it on board, but the ill-fated Note 7's Iris scanner will also make an appearance.
For performance, both the Snapdragon 830 and the Exynos 8895 will power the device. RAM is rumored at 6GB, with two screen sizes of 5 and 5.5 inches. Details of a Slim RGB display also surfaced months back, but we're yet to see further corroboration for this detail. Samsung really needs to have some awe-inspiring upgrades for the Galaxy S8 if it's to make a quick recovery from the Note 7. The tech world's fast pace will help the Korean manufacturer in this regard. Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned for the latest.
