Samsung Galaxy S8 may finally become the company's first smartphone to feature autofocus functionality on the front camera, a feature so far missing from even the flagship handsets of the South Korean titan. Samsung is planning to introduce autofocus functionality with the front camera on its upcoming flagship device, being dubbed Samsung Galaxy S8, instead of fixed-type, as per a report in South Korean media.
It has further been suggested that the smartphone will be using encoder technology instead of the existing voice coil motor mechanism for autofocus.
As per earlier leaks, Samsung Galaxy S8 will sport a pressure sensitive display, improved camera, an optical fingerprint sensor. The smartphone is tipped to come in two screen size variants - 5.7-inch and 6.2-inch. Rumours suggest that it will sport a bezel-less 4K (2160x3840 pixels) Super AMOLED display with high pixel density of 806ppi.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is further rumoured to be powered by company's own Exynos 8895 SoC coupled with 6GB of RAM. The recent leaks have suggested that Samsung will launch the alleged Galaxy S8 smartphone on the side-lines of MWC 2017 in Barcelona on February 26.
Needless to say, just like every other rumour, we will have to wait for an announcement by the company for any confirmation.
