Due to the recent Samsung S7 fiasco, the Korean tech giant's reputation has suffered a lot. In order to win back their fans and continue the domination of the smartphone industry, analysts feel that the Samsung Galaxy S8 could be the critical device.

From earlier reports, it seems the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 will have ARM Mali-G71 GPU under its hood. An octa-core Snapdragon SoC  is expected to make it a cut, making it a very powerful performer than most users could imagine!

The Samsung Galaxy S8 variants are expected to be not of flat screens .They would rather be having  the curved screen designs.

Other rumored features include Corning Gorilla Glass 5.0 glass, an iris scanner, fingerprint scanner and wireless charging in the new Samsung Galaxy S8 as per Tech Radar. There are also reports the battery capacity in the new Samsung Galaxy S8 could be higher than the earlier Galaxy models.

Perhaps the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 could be the one smartphone that earns back the trust from  the customers. Stay tuned for more updates on the Samsung Galaxy S8.
