Detailed Samsung Galaxy S7 Galaxy S8 Comparison

Models

Samsung Galaxy S7 came in two versions: one with a standard 5.1 inch Quad-HD SuperAMOLED display, and an ‘edge’ version with a 5.5in Quad-HD AMOLED dual-curved-edge display. For the Galaxy S8 the dual-curved-edge display is expected to become standard across the range, so it no longer makes sense to have an ‘edge’ model.

Instead, the larger of the two is thought to be called the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. The Galaxy S8 Plus should be a larger version of the Galaxy S8 with a higher-capacity battery and potentially a dual-camera.

Design

The Galaxy flagship is expected to get a lot more screen estate in 2017, yet without a drastic change in the dimensions. Edgeless displays are the new trend for 2017 and we expect to see Samsung fit a larger display (5.8 inch up from 5.1 inch on the standard S8 and 6.2 inch up from 5.5 inch on the S8 Plus),

TO keep down the dimensions with the removal of the Home button at the front and slimmed-down top- and bottom bezels. The Galaxy S8 is expected to measure 140 x 72 x 7 mm, a small increase in width over and shorter.

A slight increase in size for the Galaxy S8 Plus over the Galaxy S7 Edge, with the new model some 152 x 79 x 8 mm and the S7 edge 151 x 73 x 7.8 mm. The loss of the Home button will make the Galaxy S8 look quite different to previous Samsung flagships, though we expect the company to continue with the metal and glass front/rear design introduced in the Galaxy S6 and refined in the Galaxy S7.

Processor

We can be fairly certain that Samsung will replace the Snapdragon 820 inside the Galaxy S7 with a Snapdragon 835, which it has built in co-operation with Qualcomm. This 10nm chip integrates the Adreno 540 GPU, and promises improvements in performance (up to 27 percent higher), efficiency (up to 40 percent higher), and therefore battery life. It also supports Quick Charge 4.0, which is being marketed as able to give you five hours life from a five-minute charge.

Regardless of the processor choice, you can rest assured that the move to mobile VR means Samsung will fit its Galaxy S8 with much more powerful hardware than it did the Galaxy S7.

RAM

Both versions of the Galaxy S7 came with 4GB DDR4 RAM, but the new Snapdragon 835 chip can accept up to 8GB. A more likely upgrade is to 6GB, and that’s exactly what has been rumored.

Camera

A 12Mp camera was fitted to the rear of both the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, but for the Galaxy S8 there’s talk of a dual-camera. It’s possible that this will be included only on the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, as is the case with Apple’s latest iPhone line-up. The standard Galaxy S8 is likely to continue using a 12Mp primary camera, but with some improvements including support for iris scanning and visual search through Bixby. The selfie camera is also expected to get an upgrade, and now come with an autofocus.

Audio

Samsung has recently acquired audio firm Harman, which is well known for its Harman Kardon speakers. The Galaxy S8 is expected to substitute the bottom-facing speaker on the Galaxy S7 with stereo speakers at top and bottom of the handset.

Battery

Should the Samsung Galaxy S8 come without a USB-C or even Micro-USB port then all charging will be wireless, which is unfortunate – and therefore probably not likely – given the Snapdragon chip’s support for Quick Charge 4.0. The Galaxy S7 already supports fast wireless charging, so while it will annoy many users it’s certainly feasible.

 


Software

One of the most talked about new features in the Galaxy S8 is Bixby, a virtual assistant to rival the Google Assistant that is based on recently acquired Viv’s AI technology. Bixby (the male voice, and potentially Kestra for the female voice) is said to be able to conduct mobile payments, control apps and even perform image search and OCR using the camera. The S8 will ship with Android Nougat, whereas the S7 came with Marshmallow. But this isn’t a reason to choose the S8 over the S7, as that update should be rolling out for the S7 now.


Price

Today you can buy a SIM-free Galaxy S7 for under 670 USD, and this price is likely to drop further when the Galaxy S8 is announced. Meanwhile, contract prices start below 80 USD per month. Should you opt for the Galaxy S8 when it comes out you can expect contract prices to start above 60 USD (with no upfront charge for the phone), while SIM-free it is rumoured to cost 850 USD and the Plus version 900 USD. Either way you look at it the Galaxy S7 will be the significantly cheaper option.
