#TheNextGalaxy: Here are 8 rumored features of the Samsung Galaxy S8, S8 edge, and S8+


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. This will most likely happen in late Q1 2017 or early Q2 2017, if the recent crop of rumors is to be believed. The rumor mill also has it that Samsung's new phones are also said to be hitting the market later in April. The Galaxy S8's starting price is pegged at $849.

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 sky-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? Lo and behold, we've rounded these right below!

Word! ^^ I really have the vibe this Galaxy S8 is going to continue the Blockbusting which the Note7 left off. If that happens, Samsung will be back to it's heyday already!

Yes they will. I know it's all rumors but I am getting more and more excited about the note 8.

I doubt it. The Note series has so far been the phones that get more recognition while the Galaxy S phones just makes people say "So what?" I don't really see the Galaxy S8 being anything worth writing home about.

I'll take the Note over the iPhone or Nexus 6P any day of the week, and twice on Sunday.

Note 7 could have been the only phone in few years that could have made me switch back to Android; (un)fortunately...

Note 7 has more relevancy than the Mercury. The S Pen provides much more usability than the Priv with its keyboard.

The Note 7 is much better handset than the iPhone, especially spec-wise. The iPhone is just an app launcher. The S Penn on the Note 7 also provides much more functionality than the Apple Pencil.

Perfect rebuttal there ^^ You kill all what he throws at you.

Thanks! You'd think he would have learned his lesson by now, considering how I slaughter him constantly, but you can't teach a brick wall to do anything other than be a brick wall.

Like you can talk about anyone being a brick wall.

You're projecting again.

Oh I'm not projecting at all. It's the truth.

No, you're projecting big time.

The Priv was DOA. The Note 7, despite being recalled, was already a big hit. It didn't need a pointless keyboard when it had the S-Pen. Although some people are ignorant about the facts, as usual.

The Note 7, despite its issue, was much better than the iPhone spec-wise and software wise. The iPhone lacks so many features that if it wasn't for its AppStore, no one would have bought it. And iOS software is always so riddled with bugs. And even though Apple is quick to release patches, they always break functionality on the phone with every patch and update. Apple is the worst when it comes to its iOS software, and that's never going to change. But the $#33p are always ignorant of this fact, as usual.

P. S. He says he has an iPad. http://wp.patheos.com.s3.amazonaws.com/blogs/rockbeyondbelief/files/2011/11/that-was-a-lie-fox-news.jpg Calls me a $#€€p yet he is so far up BlackBerry's bum that it's a wonder if he's ever seen sunlight.

P.S. He's been saying that he has a Nexus 6P: https://memegenerator.net/instance/54885579 Says I'm up BlackBerry's bum, and yet he has Apple so far up his bum that he married his iPhone: http://www.phonearena.com/news/Man-marries-his-Apple-iPhone-in-Las-Vegas_id82732

Aka, I'm full of crap and I'm just projecting. Again.

Pot, meet kettle. Oh, and I see you can't prove me wrong about you not owning a Nexus 6P, either. Just as I figured.

I'm not so sure about that. Look at the S7 Edge and the Note 7. Under the hood, they are virtually identical. The design language is vastly different however, with the Note 7 MILES and MILES beyond the S7 Edge. I still cry when I fondly remember the time I had with my Note 7. :P I HOPE the S8 Will use a design similar to the N7 in feel. It will be very interesting to see what will happen with the Note 8.

Specs may be the same, but the execution is so much better. The Galaxy S phones are just boring to me. I haven't really cared about the Galaxy S in years. I hope the Note 8 is something worth talking about.
