#GalaxyS8 #GalaxyS8Edge – Here are 8 rumored features of the Samsung Galaxy S8, S8 edge, and S8 Plus : By now, it’s no longer news that Samsung will most definitely unveil the Galaxy S8, the Galaxy S8 edge, and probably the Galaxy S8 Plus in late February 2017. We even went out on a limb a few months ago and guesstimated that this will happen on February 26, 2017. Remains to be seen if we nailed this one on the head, but we digress.
>Lots of saucy rumors regarding Samsung’s next phones have been making headlines during the past few months and that trend will definitely continue until said devices get unveiled. Edge-to-edge bezel-busting displays, fingerprint scanners embedded in the display itself, dual-lens cameras – most of these have been pegged as essential Galaxy S8 features, and truth be told, they are doing a pretty good job at keeping our expectations high, though the latter is nothing but a double-edged sword.
So, what are the top 8 hottest features that the Galaxy S8, the S8 edge, and the rumored S8 Plus will allegedly come with?
1. Larger displays with minimal bezels
2. Fingerprint scanner embedded within the display
The required technology is already out there so there’s stopping Samsung from utilizing a fingerprint scanner embedded in the display itself. This will not only allow Samsung to ditch its signature oval home button and shed some bulk off the front. We are most probably talking about Qualcomm’s Sense ID fingerprint sensor, which can be placed almost anywhere on a device as it is capable of reading your fingertips through glass, metal, or plastic. Other component manufacturers, like CrucialTek and Synaptics, have also developed similar fingerprint sensors that sound just like something that should make its way to the Galaxy S8 & Co.
