Rumors never seem to cease when it comes to Samsung. It has not even been two months since the Galaxy S7 was officially released back in March and the internet is already warming up with rumors about the Galaxy S8. We are pretty sure that it's going to be a while before Samsung even makes a prototype of the S8, but that does not mean that the Korean company doesn't have ideas that they are working on right now. So, here is a look at the top five cool ideas that Samsung might be working on to bring in with the Galaxy S8 in 2017.
Iris scanner - The biometric locking mechanism which will take phone security to an all new level is supposedly an assured part of the S8. This rumor by Digital Spy is actually not that farfetched as iris scanners will indeed be the next step in phone security, now that fingerprint scanners have become a norm.
A truly next-generation camera - Cameras on flagship smartphones from Samsung usually are among the best in the business and the S7's sensor is no exception. However, according to Know Your Mobile, the S8 will feature a snapper that will not only sport an improved sensor, but will bring forth completely new features like infrared autofocus.
USB Type-C - This one by TechRader makes a lot of sense and we may even begin to see the type-C ports on Samsung smartphones starting with the Note 6, which is due for a release later this year.
4K panel - A 4K display could prove particularly beneficial when used with future models of Samsung's Gear VR. Although some may consider it to be overkill, one can only imagine how beautiful a 4K Super AMOLED display will look on the S8. If ValueWalk is right, then ppi count on the 5.1"/5.5" screen will be through the roof!
Built-in projector - Steel Drake's concept art of the Galaxy S8 sports an in-built projector and while the chances of that actually making its way onto the Galaxy S8 are not that great, it is definitely something we won't mind seeing.
The S8 is rumored to launch with a price tag of $1,000 but we do not think that it is even a probability, given that Samsung actually reduced the price of the S7 at launch, compared to the price of the S6 at launch in 2015. We will find out more in the coming months and especially after the Note 6 is revealed.
