    There are many rumours doing the rounds as the day for the launch of Galaxy S8 draws closer. There have been several leaks claiming to have a peak into what is coming up with the latest flagship from Samsung.

    Design
    Galaxy S8 is expected to carry forward the design elements from the Galaxy S7. There will be some refinements though minor in nature. The metal and glass moulding has been immensely popular and I do not expect any changes in the broader sense. We may look forward to a slightly more curved design.

    Display
    A 4K resolution has been on the expected lines. The phone may be launched in 5.1 and 5.7 inch sizes. There will be a Always On Display (AOD) feature. It was first observed on the ill fated Galaxy Note 7.

    Camera
    Samsung has been striving to make its camera all powerful. There are leaks suggesting a dual lens camera arrangement. The resolution is expected to be somewhere between 18 MP and 24 MP. It is likely to come with a wider f/1.4 aperture to make more light pass through it making it a good choice low light photography. The front camera resolution will be upped to 8 MP as compared to the 5 MP on S7. There is also a likelihood of Smart Glow feature which is supposed to improve your selfies.

    Battery
    The battery is said to be huge. Some reports suggest a 4200 mAh battery capacity. It will support both wireless and fast charging.

    Hardware and software
    The Galaxy S8 may ship with a 3GHz Exynos 8895 - the in house processor from Samsung. A 3.2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 830 may be equipped on the variants on sale in the US. It will have at least 6 GB of RAM. We may also expect the RAM to be as high as 8 GB as the processor is capable of supporting it. The phone will - no doubt - ship with Android Nougat 7.1. The customization by Touchwiz is expected to be leaner. Samsung is also likely bring Bixby Artificial Intelligence on the new flagship.

    Other features
    It will come with a mini projector, an iris scanner and Smart Glow feature. Galaxy S8 will support USB Type C. The internal storage will be at least 64 GB with expandable options up to 128 GB.

    Price
    This is a point that may need to be taken with a pinch of salt. It will definitely be expensive than the Galaxy S7. I would go with a price tag of around Rs. 50000 to 54000.

    Live....and Let Live!
