Samsung Galaxy S8 Latest Rumors: Dual Edge, 4K Screen Confirmed For 2017 Flagship Smartphone?

The latest tip on the upcoming Korean handset involves it having a curved display like its predecessors the S7 and the Note 7. While the two differ in their steepness angle, the general concept should be the same.
According to Phone Arena, Samsung has already tasked its design team to come up with curved panels. A 5.1” screen for the Galaxy S8 and a 5.5” diagonal for the S8 Edge.
If this is indeed the case the no S8 will have a flat screen in contrast to the Note 7 which has one version with a flat screen. The Korean firm could very well be moving towards curved displays for its flagship models in the foreseeable future.
Where does the whole 4K screen fit into the equation is still to be seen. While it is within Samsung’s capacity to create these types of dual edge screens producing sufficient amounts would be pushing it to the limit.
The exact thing happened with the Galaxy S6 in which the company was unable to produce enough panels. The resulting loss of sales was described by chief of Samsung Mobile as “heartbreaking.”
Dual Camera Coming To The Samsung Galaxy S8
The S8 might also be looking into the dual camera system seeing that rival Apple unveiled the iPhone 7 with it. Rumors suggest that the dual camera on the upcoming flagship model will consist of a Samsung-made 12 MP camera and a yet unnamed 13 MP camera supposedly made by Sony.
The SouthKorean firm might also look into other revolutionary design changes given that Apple decided to remove the iPhone 7’s audio jack. For now a dual edge and dual camera should be expected for the Galaxy S8 as more leaks regarding the model are released.
