Samsung’s got a lot of expectations piled up, after the failure of the Galaxy Note 7.

Take a look below to find out more.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 Enters Testing In China
The Galaxy S8 has seen a lot of rumors. These paint quite an impressive picture for the device. For starters, it’ll feature the Snapdragon 835. Qualcomm’s latest processor will be launched soon. An alleged slide leak detailed quite a lot of features for the processor. It’ll feature the company’s latest Kryo 280 CPU. After problems with the Snapdragon 810, Qualcomm upgraded its processor plans and chose to launch the Snapdragon 820 with custom cores.
However, we’re yet to see Kryo make any impact on benchmark scores. The Snapdragon 820 and its successor the Snapdragon 821 have failed to top charts; a rare occurence for the US chipmakers products. Now, some fresh information has surfaced for the Galaxy S8. Samsung has started testing two smartphones in China. These are likely to be the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus. Rather than launch a Plus variant of the smartphone later in the year, Samsung’s looking to consolidate the lineup now.

The two variants under testing are for China. These are dubbed internally as G9500ZCU0APLF and G9550ZCU0APLF for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. However, they aren’t the only devices under test. The Korean tech giant is also testing devices for international markets. These have been dubbed as G950FXXU0APLH and G955FXXU0APLH for the S8 and S8 Plus respectively. Even though we haven’t heard much from this source in the past, the time is ripe for testing the upcoming flagships.
After all, Samsung will avoid another fiasco like the Galaxy Note 7 at all costs. The Korean tech giant can’t afford another publicity hit, with billions already being wiped off of its sheet last year. The Galaxy S8 will feature two screen sizes, the Snapdragon 835, only Edged screens, a virtual home button, a dual camera and more. Thoughts?
