Sick and tired of your Samsung Galaxy S7 already? Maybe you should consider the Galaxy S8 instead...
The next phone set to make its way onto the Samsung Galaxy S line-up, the S8 will be yet another flagship device for us all to drool over when it launches.
Sure to sport a brilliant design and top of the range specs, the S8 will be nothing to smirk at.
It seems a long time away but it comes around fast.
Pay Monthly, SIM Free & Upgrades
Rumoured on Release - 32GB / 128GB - Colours
It's not out yet, but it looks like a 2017 release, keep up to date though - just fill in the form and we will do the rest.
Set to be the next Galaxy S phone to make the rounds, the S8 is sure to be a highly coveted device which won't be scared of leaking ahead of its official launch.
Expected to bring the next Android operating system to the Samsung smartphone collection when it does launch, the S8 will pack high-end specs by the bucket-load, ensuring that fans won't be disappointed with its performance. On top of this, the design of the Samsung won't be letting us down either if the more recent handsets are anything to go by. They've all offered glass and metal construction which hit the mark from a fashion point of view, as well as proving surprisingly durable, with IP68 protection ratings.
This is one area that we can safely say we're likely to be able to predict with the S8, given that the S7 appeared at MWC, we can only assume that the S8 will go down a similar path and show up at next year's conference. This means that lucky visitors to the show will probably get the first real glimpse of the S8 in the flesh, although a full release date won't be too far behind.

If there's something that's sure to impress on the Galaxy S8 it's the specs which are set to be included on the handset. Here's what you can expect to find when the phone comes out...
Whilst the Galaxy S8 is still a while away, there's no harm in talking about some of the features it could be bringing to the market when it eventually launches.
Every year this same rumour gets punted around like a well used football, but could the Galaxy S8 finally bring this extra security feature onto the market? Retina or iris scanning is much more secure than fingerprint technology, and it's also more accurate because sweat and dirt won't play a factor. You can even use iris scaning technology whilst wearing contact lenses.
Whilst we'd definitely support keeping fingerprint technology for features like Android or Samsung Pay for convenience, having iris or retina scanning tech would help our phones stay even more secure than they have been with recent advancements. Of course, this request is more in hope than expectation, but one day we're sure we'll see eye scanning mobile phones...
The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium showed the world that 4K isn't just for TVs and monitors. Since then we've yet to see another 4K screen on a mobile device. The Samsung Galaxy S8 could be set to change that, bringing a 4K screen onto a Galaxy S model for the first time in the company's history.
This kind of screen doesn't come cheap though, so you can expect the S8's price tag to be an expensive one, although it's well worth the extra cost for the top of the range quality. It helps the S8 be the best phone for video content, letting you catch the latest films in the best way possible, ditching the days of blurry resolution.
With all these features and specs, it's safe to say that the S8's battery will be capable of taking a real beating on a day to day basis. This means that it needs to be big, plentiful and long lasting - unlike some other smartphone batteries on the market.
Lucky for us, we can expect to see a 3500mAh effort join the fray, all whilst allowing for wireless charging at ridiculous speeds, which should keep Samsung fans connected almost all of the time. A USB-C connection is also a given, allowing for any way up charging...
