Samsung Galaxy S8 to feature 8GB of RAM?
Before you even start reading this story, we suggest that you open that container of salt in your kitchen pantry and take this story with a grain or two of the stuff. According to a tipster on weibo who has been accurate on previous calls related to Samsung devices, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will feature 8GB of RAM. Samsung will be eating its own cooking and the chip will be produced using the 10nm process.

In addition, Samsung's next flagship model will supposedly include a UFS 2.1 flash storage chip. Earlier rumors called for the Galaxy S8 to be equipped with 6GB of RAM and as much as 256GB of internal storage. Following the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, Samsung is believed to be working on a highly-spec'd Galaxy S8 that would remove the twice-recalled phablet from everyone's mind. In addition, a rumored Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus with a 6-inch display could be released in place of a Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The Galaxy S8 Plus might sport a dual-camera set up in back as opposed to the single rear camera that could adorn the standard version of the phone.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 could come with a 5.1-inch screen and the Exynos 8895 chipset should be found powering the majority of Galaxy S8 units around the globe. If 2017 is anything like this year, units in the U.S. and China will be driven by Qualcomm's latest and greatest Snapdragon 835 SoC. Android 7.0 will be pre-installed with the Samsung Experience UI running on top. While Samsung might be hoping to include its new AI powered assistants reportedly named Bixby (male) and Kestra (female) with the Galaxy S8, there is some speculation that Google is talking to Sammy about making Google Assistant the only voice activated personal assistant on the device.

Samsung phones need a lot of RAM to function properly.

Mine have been functioning properly since the original Galaxy S...Your Note 4 that you claim to have must be defective.

Wouldn't be suprised seeing such delusional projection coming from you... But Samsung phones with 3GB RAM function more than properly.

The 8GB RAM is for heavyweight multitasking and it allows the implementation of even more resource-taxing features... something which your beloved iDevice can only dream of.

That's because they do so damn much. Conversely, iPhones don't need much RAM, cause they don't do much. That's not hating, that's just a fact. The iPhone is a one trick, one dimensional pony vs the Galaxy S and Notes being crazy versatile, and do everything devices.

As a long time user of both, I can itemize if need be.

No one person cares how much RAM the phone has. And it really doesn't matter for the users. (only few freaks and envy haters count it)
They care most about what the phone can do. And Samsung phones are the best in that. Few years in front of the stock Android and many years in front of the iPhones

Too bad your Samsung phone doesn't have a properly functioning keyboard.

Hey darkk...... is there anything on the 7 edge that you like better than the Note 7?

Multi window edge panel, that allows apps to be launched in a floating window. I use the calculator in that mode a lot. Other than that, no. The Note 7 was the best phone I've ever used, bar none.

Nothing touches it.

Yea.....i played with it ....almost bought one but I was concerned about screen protection.... so I bought the S7 only to learn you cannot get a glass screen protector for it.....I'm looking to get a S8 so we will see

Those edge panels are a major boost for that model. Try it with the s8.

Samsung better offer physical dedicated camera button and a decent pair of earphones. Who cares about these specs...

Actually most of the people care a lot more about device specs rather than earphones and dedicated camera button, lol. Why would anyone need those? Go to Amazon, buy a freaking pair of nice Sennheiser headsets and use them on all of your phones for 5+ years. As for the camera button - this is utterly useless.

Man, that was a stupid post. Just set the volume rocker to snap pics, Samsung gives you choice. Who do you think Apple got that idea from LOLLL.

You don't really need a screen protector on the s7, I've had mine in an Otterbox Defender with the plastic ripped out. Tempered glass did not last long, case itself shattered it, had it this way for 6 months, it's fine just don't be stupid and stick it in your pocket with keys and such. I am a fan of the flat phones, edge would never survive with my job.

I cannot stand the otterbox....too big and bulky...... I had one for my S5....I removed the plastic screen and had a glass protector on.....I work outside all the time .....dirt and dust.....i also cannot stand micro scratches which will happen

That plastic screen protector of the defender was awful. It completely ruined the touch response. I returned it, got a case with a kickstand and no screen cover, and it's so much better. Cost about $40 less, too.
