110 Reasons Samsung’s Rumored Galaxy S8 Will Be a Worthwhile Buy
2The Galaxy S8 Will Have Large Screens
3It Will Have the Most Powerful Mobile Processor on the Market
Samsung’s Galaxy S8 is expected to be the most powerful handset in the mobile market when it ships, and it could hold that distinction for a few weeks at least. That’s because the Galaxy S8 will be the first smartphone at launch equipped with Qualcomm’s latest generation Snapdragon 835 processor, which promises to be tops in processing speed, power efficiency and more. While other mobile devices will eventually be equipped with the Snapdragon 835, they likely won’t ship until May at the earliest.
4It Will Run Android Nougat
The Galaxy S8 will ship with Google’s latest mobile operating system, Android Nougat. Additionally, Samsung will offer the latest version of its own Android skin, complete with a more intuitive user interface, improved applications and better performance. The Galaxy S8’s software should be a real selling point.
5Stylus Support Will Be Nice
6The Screen Will Entirely Cover the Handset’s Face
Samsung’s Galaxy S8 might be one of the first devices to launch with what many analysts are calling a next-generation design. Specifically, the device could come with a screen that covers nearly all of the smartphone’s face. This means the old physical home button has been eliminated to make room for the bigger screens.
7There’s the Promise of Reliable Batteries
Samsung is said to be working on a high-efficiency battery that will last more than a day on a single charge and will be capable of rapid recharging. The Galaxy S8 will also be the first device to benefit from Samsung’s new battery-safety regulations following the Galaxy Note7’s disastrous battery failures. Look for Samsung’s Galaxy S8 to offer some of the best battery performance on the market.
8The S8 Will Include a Virtual Assistant
Samsung is planning to catch up in the artificial-intelligence market with the Galaxy S8. According to several reports, the company is planning to offer a feature called Bixby, a new virtual assistant that will compete with Siri and Cortana. According to reports, Bixby will be activated by a physical button on the Galaxy S8’s side to search the web, make to do lists and book appointments.
9Everyone Wants a Better Camera
Nearly all reports say Samsung is planning a big improvement to the Galaxy S8’s camera. The rear-facing camera will come with a 12-megapixel sensor, but should offer 4K video recording, higher-quality photos and perhaps even dual-lens support. On the front, Samsung will offer a nicer camera for selfies.

11Galaxy S8 Gets Samsung Back Into the Big-Screen Handset Game
Samsung’s big screen Note7 was popular with smartphone buyers. Its demise meant Samsung hasn’t had a big screen handset on in its model lineup since last fall. It’s counting on a big-screen Galaxy S8 being just as popular with buyers while delivering the kind of reliability and high-end features that will make smartphone buyers forget about the Note7.
