The Exynos 8895 SoC which will power the upcoming Galaxy S8 has now been made official by Samsung. This is what Ben Hur, Vice President of System LSI marketing at Samsung Electronics had to say regarding the next Exynos chip.


"In addition to being built on the most advanced 10nm FinFET process technology, the new Exynos 9 Series 8895 incorporates Samsung's cutting-edge technologies including a 2nd generation custom CPU, gigabit LTE modem, and more. With industry leading technologies like VPU, the Exynos 8895 will drive the innovation of next generation smartphones, VR headsets, and automotive infotainment system."


Also check the official image which details the chip's capabilities and specifications.



The Exynos 8890 is still one of the most powerful mobile chips in the market at the moment, but the octa-coreExynos 8895 will provide 27% better performance at 40% better power-efficiency. The Mali-G71 GPU which will accompany the octa-core processor will be powerful enough to handle VR at 4K resolution, along with a multi-format codec for 4K video recording at 120fps support.


We have to admit, that sounds amazing and we can't wait to see the Exynos 8895 in action when the Galaxy S8 comes out in April.

Samsung had said last year that they were going to batten down the hatches to restrict the number of leaks this year, but that has clearly not worked out very well! We now know more or less everything that there is to know about the Galaxy S8 as yet another live picture reveals itself. We are not exactly sure who leaked the image but thanks to SamMobile, we can take a look at it.


It mentions clearly that we are seeing the Galaxy S8 on the left with a 5.8-inch curved panel, while the Galaxy S8+ with a 6.2-inch curved panel lies on the right. Apart from the high screen-to-body-ratio and the Always On display, we can see the Always On soft Home button for the first time. According to reports, double tapping on the virtual Home button will activate the camera, while hard pressing it will wake up the main display. Unfortunately, the fingerprint scanner has been shifted this year to the back of the phone and in a rather awkward position, just beside the rear camera.

We have had a good look at the Galaxy S8 before, thanks to rendered photos and even a video by @OnLeaks. We had even seen a live photo or two of the upcoming device in the past few weeks, but they are nothing like what we have for you today. These images show it all and you can now have a clear idea of what to expect from Samsung this year.



Unfortunately, there's nothing that these images show us which we don't know already. We can see the 3.5mm audio jack, the USB Type-C port, the curved display with very high screen-to-body ratio and no physical Home button. If you can't wait to get your hands on one, you will just have to wait till March 29, when the company may announce the device officially to the public. In fact, Samsung will confirm the official launch date and release date during their conference at the MWC next week. Take a look at the images leaked by Ice Universe on Twitter and let us know if you like what you see.

Although the Galaxy S8 won\'t be available for purchase until mid-April, we have news regarding the Tab S3 which Samsung is going to launch in a week or so, at the MWC 2017 in Barcelona. There are also a few recent snippets on other subjects which you might like.


Metal-glass build for the Galaxy Tab S3



In a live image of the upcoming Galaxy Tab S3, leaked by the Taiwan National Communication Propagation Committee (NCC), a metal and glass build for the tablet was revealed. Samsung had submitted the tablet to them as a part of the regulatory pre-release approval in the country. The Tab S3 now has the certification number CCAH17LP0380T2 in Taiwan and should be available for purchase from early next month.


Gear VR with a Controller



Check out this Gear VR headset which is rumoured to come out with the Galaxy S8 and S8+ next month. According to this leak by Roland Quandt, the new VR headset will have the model number SM-R324 and \"a single hand controller.\" We will have to wait and see if Samsung incorporates the controller with the VR headset in the same way Google did it with their wireless controller and the DayDream VR.


Exynos 9810



We knew that Samsung is probably going to shift to Exynos series 9 from 2017 for its flagship SoC range, but thanks to an Indian intern\'s LinkedIn profile, we may also have the model number; Exynos 9810. The rumoured 9810M is supposed to have a more powerful Mali G-71 GPU with 20 cores, while the 9810V could have the slightly less powerful version of the same GPU, with 18 cores.
That\'s it for now, but stay tuned as we will bring you more as soon as there\'s more to bring to you.

Now that we already have a pretty good idea about what the Galaxy S8 will look like, leakster @mmdj_china has just leaked the RAM details and the exact release date set for the two smartphones in US and China. Both the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ will be sporting 6GB of RAM, at least in China. We think that this will be the same in all regions though, given that the Galaxy C9 Pro recently came out with 6 gigs of RAM. Both devices will have a 64GB and a 128GB variant along with expandable memory card slots.


As far as the release date is concerned, according to the leakster, the S8 series will go on sale in the US on April 14. It was mentioned that in China, the S8 and the S8+ will see release in the 15th week of the year. It is a rather strange way to say that the two devices will be available for purchase form the third week of April. These are the latest developments regarding the Galaxy S8, if you want to see the rest of the specs and rumors, check it out here.
