Samsung Galaxy S8 reportedly lacks attractive selling points

Kuo also says that Samsung reported a decline in smartphone sales last year due to the fact that the the S7/edge was Samsung’s only high-end handset in the market. However, this will change this year, as Samsung may pack its Galaxy S8 with compelling features and improvements.

According to rumors, Samsung Galaxy S8 will come with the same design as the Galaxy S7 and S6.

Specifically, Samsung Galaxy S8 might include a 5.8 QHD+ Super AMOLED display, 12MP dual pixel rear shooter and 4GB of RAM. Besides, the new device will come with IP68 for water resistance.

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will compete directly with Apple’s iPhone 8 this year. iPhone 8 has been rumored to come with a brand new design and compelling features like facial recognition and new Touch ID.
