Competing devices like the new iPhones already offer buyers the option of 256GB storage
Following the discontinuation of the Galaxy Note 7, a lot is riding on the Samsung’s next flagship smartphone. According to a report by Dutch website, TechTastic, the Galaxy S8 may offer 6GB of RAM along with 256GB of storage. Phones like the OnePlus 3 already offer 6GB of RAM, while the new iPhones have a variant offering 256GB storage. Last month, reports even suggested that Samsung may launch the Galaxy S8 with a whopping 8GB of RAM. The company has already launched a device with 6GB of RAM called the Galaxy C9 Pro.
The Galaxy S8 is tipped to be available in two sizes, one with a 5.7-inch display and the other with a 6.2-inch display. While earlier reports had tipped the phone to feature 4K resolution, newer reports have suggested that Samsung might stick to a 2K display instead. Further, the new phones might not feature the home button. Earlier this month, an engineer at Samsung’s display making unit had said that the company would roll out an edge-to-edge display with a high screen-to-body ratio in 2017. He also showed a concept image of a full screen Galaxy S7 Edge with no home button, while sensors like the fingerprint sensor would be built under the display.
