Samsung to Release Newest “S” Model This April
After the unfortunate Galaxy Note 7 debaucle, android phone powerhouse, Samsung, might be making a comeback with its latest “S” model, which we suspect will be released on March 29th of this year. Earlier this week, Samsung sent out invites for a special media event in New York. While many rumors are going around on the internet, these are the ones we are more sure about.
Samsung is set to release two new phones: the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 plus, the plus is likely to be a larger version of the former. The GS8 will have a 5.7-inch display and the GS8 plus will have a 7.2-inch display. After the Galaxy Note 7 issue, some are wondering if Samsung should keep the Galaxy name on its newer models. The “S” series and the “Note” series are essentially different phones though so it’s not sure that the continued use of thee name will be met negatively by consumers.
Earlier this week, Samsung released two teaser trailer videos at the Mobile World Congress about the “Galaxy Unpacked Event” that indicate an innovative new design for the Galaxy phone. There is some likelihood that the models will be devoid of a home button and will instead have a touch version of the home button like that of the Google Pixel and the LG G6. Leaked photographs also indicate that it will be possible to toggle the position of the home button as the screen rotates.
The phones will come out with an individually tailored version of android 7.0, nougat, and will be supported by a Samsung-owned Artificial Intelligence (AI) replacement to the usual Google AI usually used in the phone. Last year Samsung acquired Viv Labs, an AI platform, that would make it possible for them to do so.
