Samsung Galaxy S8: Apple Airpod Rival Won't Kill Important Feature?

Moreover, as per the latest leak from Roland Quandt of, Samsung will also launch a pair of wireless headphones along with the much leaked Samsung Galaxy S8. This, in turn, means the display can be more power efficient, because the battery isn't having to keep a backlight lit. While the device will nearly certainly boast premium hardware and a unique design, Samsung is also allegedly looking to ennoble the Galaxy S8 with some incredibly unique features.

The next few months could prove to be very busy indeed for Samsung, as the company is also expected to reveal the Galaxy S8 smartphone within the next few weeks.

Sources within Samsung had hinted that the Galaxy S8 will debut at an event in South Korea, despite other whispers that suggested a simultaneous event in NY. The South Korean tech giant apparently designed a special docking station for the Galaxy S8 which allows consumers to easily connect their phone to a larger monitor and use it as a traditional desktop PC. Interestingly, the device is expected to come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. Here are some key features of the Note 8.

Samsung is expected to drop the Edge variant of the Galaxy line, as both S8 models will sport "dual edge" displays which wrap around the S8's sides like an infinity pool. The company will release its Level In ANC wireless headphones to coincide with the release of its flagship Galaxy S8. The only other piece of information about the Xcover 4 that we've learned from Wi-Fi Alliance is the fact that it will run Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box.

The real big news - and one we've heard rumoured often - is that the iPhone 8 will be the first Apple smartphone to feature an OLED screen, so says Soneira.

Airbnb did not say how the accommodations would be provided, but Chesky urged travelers who need emergency housing to contact him. The American president's executive order, signed on Friday, bans refugees and visitors from seven predominantly Muslim countries.

Google's original Pixel has a colour gamut based on the Adobe RGB gamut, but Soneira believes that the Google Pixel 2 will have a DCI-P3 gamut, just like the Note 7.

Soneira's extensive report on OLED technology available to this year's top smartphones is available at this link.

The exact screen size is yet to be announced, although it's been reported to hover around the 5- to 6-inch mark.

Unfortunately, we won't know any of this for sure until the handset's expected September launch.
