The Galaxy S8 is likely going to be powered by the 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 processor, in some markets it will feature Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 processor. The much-rumored dual-camera system of the Galaxy S8 is said to be exclusive to the larger variant. The rumor also claims that the Viv artificial intelligence assistant is going to replace S Voice in the Galaxy S8. S Voice isn’t similar to other intelligent assistants like Siri so it will be a welcome addition to the flagship. It merits mentioning here that Samsung recently confirmed the acquisition of Viv Labs, the company behind this assistant, it’s also interesting to note that the people who founded this company previously worked on Siri.
Some have suggested that the Galaxy S8 might be launched earlier to contain the fallout from the Galaxy Note 7 mess but at this point in time that seems unlikely. If history is any indication, we can expect to see Samsung unveil the Galaxy S8 at MWC 2017 in February.
