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.
