Samsung's 2017 flagship device may have some innovative features and surprising changes. It is also expected to have safer battery to redeem the Galaxy Note 7. Now, here's the latest round-up of update about Samsung Galaxy S8 release date, specs and rumors on the web.

Samsung's next generation phone may not offer headphone jack, just like the new iPhone 7. The move would help the South Korean phone maker to take the next big step in smartphone design. According to tech experts, the freed space from the headphone jack would lighten the device and improve its water proofing feature.

Furthermore, the removal of headphone jack reflects Samsung's vision to become an innovator and be able to keep up with modern design trend. The company also does not want to be perceived as lagging behind its competitors. As we already know, Apple removed the standard jack in iPhone 7. And that move may help to accelerate the acceptance of headphone jack-less smartphones.

For other features, Forbes reported the Galaxy S8 will be powered by one of the most powerful graphics chip in the market today, ARM's Mali-G71. This heavy-weight chip will be paired with a 4K resolution screen, which is about 3840 x 2160-pixels.

The combination of Mali-G71 and high definition screen suggests that the Galaxy S8 will be capable of producing high-quality VR contents. The phone's VR support is good news for fans given that experts predict 2017 is the year for VR technology.

The Galaxy S8 might also have a curved screen display in all of its models. Gadget lovers applauded the innovative curved screen of Galaxy S7 Edge models. And rumors around the internet claim the design will be magnified to future Samsung smartphones. In fact, head of Samsung Mobile DJ Koh previously said, "Samsung has considered that it would make the edge display as the identity of the Galaxy S smartphone lineup."

Of course, we expect the smartphone will have faster processor, bigger RAM and better camera technology. It might also come with long-lasting battery to support the clearer 4K screen. 

Meanwhile, readers should take note that all Samsung Galaxy S8-related details mentioned above are only rumors and speculations. It is better to take them with grain of salt until Samsung announces the full specs of the smartphone.
