Soundblasters: Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 edge rumored to boast Harman-branded stereo speakers


The air is rife with Galaxy S8 rumors given that the anticipated smartphone's announcement is due in just a bit over two months or so. We've heard lots of exciting stuff about Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S8 and S8 edge, which will have the daunting task of making it up for the Galaxy Note 7 disaster that took place earlier this year.

The latest rumor to hit us regards the audio capabilities of the upcoming devices and claims that the Galaxy S8 and most likely the S8 edge will have stereo speakers on board. These are pegged to have a Harman branding, which is possible thanks to Samsung's recent $8 billion acquisition of the audio-centric giant. 

Remains to be seen how Samsung will implement these purported stereo speakers on its next flagship. It could either put two front-firing speakers à la HTC One M9/Nexus 6P, or emulate iPhone 7's setup, which uses its earpiece as a loudspeaker in concert with the regular one positioned at the bottom of the device.

The inclusion of high-end Harman-powered speakers on Sammy's future top-shelf devices was hinted during a press conference two weeks ago, so the stars align perfectly for the rumored stereo speakers on the Galaxy S8 and S8 edge. After all, it wouldn't make sense not to capitalize on that pricey acquisition.

As far as the rumors for the Galaxy S8 and S8 edge go, we've compiled a lengthy article with all the saucy tidbits of hearsay we've heard. You can check it out by following the link right below.
