After its turnaround from the Galaxy S5 debacle in 2014, Samsung will do everything in its power not to let its grip on the reputation for having the best-selling flagship smartphone slip any longer.
With the successful launch of the Galaxy S6 last year, followed by the Galaxy S7 this year, the Korean tech giant wrested control of the flagship smartphone market in the US over Apple. It is not about to just let it go even with the impending arrival of the Apple iPhone 7 in September this year.
Reports have it that the Galaxy S8 shall have groundbreaking features that it would literally take the flagship smartphone market by storm.
One of the most interesting rumored features of the Galaxy S8 is its dual-screen display, and this was based on the patent filed by Samsung last year. Apparently, Samsung patented a new technology that allows a smartphone to have a dual-screen display.
The company also filed for patent for apps that shall be compatible with the dual-screen feature of the smartphone. Thus, it started spawning rumors that the Galaxy S8 might have a cover that folds open, which would be a first among smartphones.
Another groundbreaking feature is the 4K display of the Galaxy S8. In fact, reports have it that the smartphone shall become the first handset to come out with a 4K display capability.
