There have been several rumors all over the internet regarding the next Samsung release. According to reports, the company is currently developing the upcoming Galaxy Note 6, which is said to come out before this year ends. However, many fans are interested in new speculations suggesting that Samsung is now starting to work on its next flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S8.

The handset is rumored to come out in 2017. According to reports it will carry impressive specs and features including a high-resolution display. Samsung has been known to produce devices with quad HD screens for so many years now. However, this is about to change as the South Korean tech giant is said to produce new devices with 4K Ultra HD. According to Korea Herald, the company is currently working on it and hopes are high that the upcoming Galaxy S8 will be the first smartphone to get the 4K technology.

During the Display Week Conference in May in San Francisco, Samsung presented a device with a 5.5-inch 4K Ultra HD display. According to Sammobile, new generation smartphones from the company might get such display. If rumors prove to be true, this will certainly help the company achieve total domination in the smartphone market.

Meanwhile, Mobipicker reported that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will carry a 5.5-inch display with 4K capability. It is also said to run on a Snapdragon 830 from Qualcomm, along with Samsung's 10 nm 6 GB DRAM design. According to tech observers, the 4K technology will certainly help to provide better content for the VR feature.

As of the moment, Samsung has yet to provide solid details with regard to its developments, much less its release date. However, several tech observers believe that the Galaxy S8 will come out early next year. According to reports, Samsung is currently concentrating on the release of the Galaxy Note 6.
