Samsung has already taken a major hit with the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco that has caused the company a 30 percent profit plunge and also adversely affected its reputation globally. The South Korean company however is very positive about its upcoming Galaxy flagship, believed to be dubbed Galaxy S8.

According to Lee Kyeong-tae, Samsung's Vice President for Mobile Communications, the upcoming Galaxy high-end smartphone will feature "slick design" while also sport "an improved camera." One of the biggest hints that Lee dropped while speaking to WSJ was the upcoming smartphone will come with "an enhanced artificial-intelligence service." Unfortunately, Lee didn't detail any specifics.

Samsung is widely expected to leverage its Viv Labs acquisition which is a US-based artificial-intelligence software company. The developers at Viv previously founded Siri which is now Apple's digital voice-assistant on mobile devices. To recall, Samsung acquired Viv Labs earlier this month.

Based on preliminary leaks, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to feature a 5.5-inch 4K (2160x3840 pixels) Super Amoled display and will boast of an impressive pixel density of 806ppi. It is expected to feature the company's in-house Exynos 8895 SoC while sports 6GB of RAM. The Galaxy S8 is also rumoured to come with 16-megapixel and 8-megapixel dual-rear camera setup. A recent report also suggested that Samsung may not embed the fingerprint scanner in the home button, and will instead have it under the rumoured 4K screen. If this comes out to be true, then the Samsung Galaxy S8 may be the company's first smartphone to sport an optical fingerprint technology.

Some reports have pointed that work on the Galaxy S8 has been delayed as all focus is on finding the fault in the Galaxy Note 7.
