Samsung S8 Tests Are To Begin In January

Latest specs give fuel to previous rumors.

Samsung has faced a huge loss over the Note 7 recall. The company is now focused on making things better and as an attempt it is now releasing the S8 earlier than planned.

Samsung has now pushed the date to April so that it can ensure the phone to be safe and secure.The S8 was initially planned to be launched at the MWC next year.

Galaxy S8 Development Timeline

A new report has been released today which gives us an idea of Samsung’s S8 development timeline. It is rumored that Samsung is ordering the parts of the phone in the coming January. It will assemble the first prototypes and initiate the testing process.

The suppliers will be ready for pressure in February when the company orders in more refined units for testing. March will be the final month for production so that the phone can be released in April. Samsung still hasn’t found out the cause for the battery disaster in the Note 7.

Therefore the release date can be comprehended as a move to make sure the phone will be secure. Samsung does not wish to see another flagship go down the drain.

Rumored Specs

As the release date is coming near we see more rumors catch fire. Another report on the specs of Samsung Galaxy S8 reconfirms many rumors. It states the following will be present in the new phone

• 5.1" QHD screen

• 90 screen-to-body ratio

• iris scanner

• dual camera setup with 12MP and 13MP sensors Dual camera setup

It is still not clear as to how the camera sensors will work. We have seen similar setups of dual cameras such as the following

• HTC and ZTE where second sensor were used for depth sensing

• secondary monochrome sensors were used to improve low-light photography by Huawei and Xiaomi

• different focal lengths were used by LG and Apple

We have to wait and see what approach Samsung takes up on the dual camera setup.
