Samsung Galaxy S8 may feature an UHD display

26 July, 2016 Samsung


It has just recently come to public attention that the upcoming Galaxy S8 is codenamed Project Dream. The moniker may have a lot to do with VR and the next steps that Samsung will take to enhance the technology. Even though it is just too early in the day to know in details about the upcoming Samsung flagship smartphone for 2017, sources are pointing towards a 4K Ultra High Definition display (3840 × 2160) on a 5.5-inch panel. They are also pointing towards an independent VR device named Odyssey that will compete with the likes of the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive.


It is rumoured that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 SoC to power everything, with an Exynos equivalent for the international version of course. However, we are pretty sure that the chipset would have to be extremely powerful to run VR apps at 4K resolution! Considering that the Oculus Rift with a lower resolution (2160 × 1200) requires a minimum of a GTX 970 (high end GPU for desktops) to be used properly with a fully fledged desktop, the chipset will have to be significantly more powerful than what we have seen so far on smartphones.
