If certain reports are to be believed, Samsumg is looking forward to break all barriers with the Samsung Galaxy S8 release next year in April. Rumours suggest some crazy specs that, at this moment, seem too good to be true.

Samsung is in a catch. The tech giant is reportedly looking forward to make up for the losses it suffered after the Galaxy Note 7 recall fiasco and wants to regain its somewhat lost image by introducing the most-advanced smartphone, Samsung Galaxy S8, as early as possible.

At the same time, the company must also keep in mind that hurrying things up can lead to a disaster as proved by the hurried launch of the Galaxy Note 7. The last thing it wants is another goof-up in a bid to wow customers, reports Yahoo! Tech.

A crazy rumour from China suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will cost around US$850 (AU$1,105 approx).

Pocket Now has reported the Weibo leak that states the Samsung Galaxy S8 to be having a 3.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 5.2-inch 4K display, 4096X2160 pixel resolution, 6GB of RAM, 30MP rear camera, 9MP front camera, 64GB/128GB memory, dual micro SD card support and a 4,200 mAh battery.

Other mind-blowing specs include an Iris scanner, fingerprint scanner, Corning Gorilla Glass 5.0 glass, built-in mini projector, rapid charging and wireless charging. The Samsung Galaxy S8 could be made available in four colours, white, gold, blue and black.

By the look of it, the specs seem like a dream but it’s downright outrageous. With so many high-end specs crammed up together, Samsung may run into grave battery issues.

There are also rumours that Samsung will go the Apple way by dropping the 3.5mm jack in the Galaxy S8. If that’s really the case, it will be a fight to behold with Apple gearing up to release the iPhone 8 in 2017, marking the 10th anniversary of Apple iPhone.
