    Samsung Galaxy S8: Rising from the Ashes

    The latest news, rumors, reports on Samsung’s newest flagship device

     After the fiasco with the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung’s hopefully on its way to making a return with the Galaxy S8. With the excitement and even great expectations to their flagship phone, lots of rumors have come up.

     So we’ve compiled here the rumors to help you get on track:

     When would it be released?

     Launch is said to be on March 29 in New York with the release date on April 21. Another possible release date floating around is on April 18. UPDATE: Samsung just officially released a statement that their new flagship phone will be launched at 11am EDT in New York on March 29.

     It was originally believed that Samsung will launch the phone during the Mobile World Congress. But according to The Korea Herald the company will be launching the new Galaxy Tab S3. While we can expect the glimpse of the new Galaxy S8 with a video clip. Unveiling of tablet can be confirmed by the teaser tweet Samsung Mobile posted.

     Rumor has it that the launch delay of the smartphone is due to safety issues from the Note 7 explosions.


     What is/are sizes of the phone(s)?

     It’s speculated that the phone will have 2 sizes just like the previous flagship phones released: namely the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus.

     GSM Arena currently released these dimensions for the phones:


    Screen size/shape of the phone?

     The rumored screen size for the Galaxy S8 measures 5.8 inches while the Galaxy 8 “Plus” will be 6.2 inches (larger than the iPhone 7 Plus). What’s new and possibly an awesome feature is it will have an “infinity display”  covering the majority of the front panel. There wouldn’t even be room for a home button or maybe even Samsung’s logo!

     Korea’s ETNews reported that the company wanted to remove the home button and have it virtually integrated like the rumored iPhone 8/X. It was also released Samsung wanted to have an all-screen front. 

    The trend of a curved-edge display will be seen in the Galaxy 8 and combined with the next-gen organic light-emitting diode (OLED). The phone in the YouTube video published by Samsung Display may already be a glimpse of the new smartphone.

    There may also be an upgrade to 4K display especially with virtual reality currently trending. In addition this will also help Samsung if it has plans to push for their Gear VR. This updated screen will give an enhanced and less pixelated view.


    Possible new features to the phone/s?

    After the blast they had with the batteries of Note 7, Samsung made changes to make sure it won’t happen again. The new flagship phones’ batteries are tested with the company’s eight-point battery testing procedure and manufactured by a different company.

    In Galaxy 8, you might say hello to Bixby. This is said to be the AI assistant they’d be using for the phone which may also have its own button. The Viv Labs Technology-based assistant will likely replace the S Voice.

    Another unique component that Samsung’s new flagship phone might have is about their fingerprint sensor. A photo released by Cnet Korea shows that it will be on the back of the phone beside the camera.

    Galaxy 8 may have a better back camera too. We’ve seen an impressive one with the Galaxy S7 where they used “Dual Pixel” Technology plus a large f/1.7 lens aperture and 1/2.6-inch sensor. Right now, Samsung is in the works to perfect a 1/1.7-inch sensor for smartphones. Though no confirmation of this can be used in time for the Galaxy 8.

    There have been talks that the Galaxy 8 will be using USB-C instead of the Micro USB. It will be following suit from the Galaxy Note 7 and can be the best path since Samsung’s new Gear VR supports USB-C (originally paired up with Note 7). Fortunately, we have developed several Type C Accessories that are already available in case this rumor is true!

    To lose or not to lose the 3.5mm headset jack? One of the questions is if will see this in Samsung’s new flagship phone. There was a rumor that the headjack will be removed and Bluetooth headphones will be used, maximizing the USB-C port. Although a more recent rumor suggest the headset jack will stay.

    How Tech Armor plans to protect the phone?

    There is no doubt that we will support the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus with our flagship Ballistic Glass and we are currently in development as this article is released. The questions we are currently wrestling with are how to most effectively protect the curved edges with other materials as well. We are also currently looking into a completely clear 3D glass option (as opposed to the colored glass seen in many rumor sites) that would work on ALL device options. With such an extremely curved phone (similar to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge), our flat glass solution (although cost effective and case-friendly) does present some challenges.



    How much will the phone cost?

    Rumored prices for Galaxy S8 ranges from $850-$950 (USD) while the S8 Plus is at $958.65-$1,050 (USD).

    So far that’s the recap of most that’s been circulating all about the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus up to date. Stay tuned for more updates on the phone and how we can help you protect it! ;)

  • My Samsung Galaxy S7 Screen Protector Doesn’t Fit!?!

    The “perfect fit” for the Samsung Galaxy S7… how do we go about achieving this goal and what does it even mean? Back in the days of the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S5, developing a screen protector that fits the device “perfectly” was a relatively easy task. The flat-glass screens offered a two-dimensional problem that was easy to solve: simply define the edges (height and width) and provide precise cuts for all camera and speaker holes. Done!

    Now the game has changed with recent device launches as manufacturers have embraced the curved screen. Our once simple problem has expanded to include a 3rd, curved dimension! In order to provide a low-cost solution using flat glass or film, we MUST now account for this curve to avoid installation issues.

    With the recent launch of the Samsung Galaxy S7, we’ve received some complaints from loyal Tech Armor fans who claim our HD Clear and Ballistic Glass screen protectors were improperly cut and thus do not fit. At first glance, their imagery seems to lend validity to that assumption, however our product was deliberately designed to avoid the increased curve of the new S7 screen.
    Samsung Galaxy S7 reviews
    Look at the comparison below… On the LEFT, you can see how the glass rests on the flat areas of the glass- providing a perfect seal to protect the flat areas of the screen. On the RIGHT, we’ve created this image to illustrate what would happen if we extended our screen to “perfectly fit” the device.

    Samsung Galaxy S7 comparison
    The flat shape of our screen protectors would create a gap between the device and allow air, dirt and debris to creep under. Every time you pulled the device out of your pocket or purse, the potential for peeling would drastically increase!

    At Tech Armor, we pride ourselves on seamless installation with a bubble-free guarantee and we take great care in the design of our products to ensure this promise. While the competition scrambles to redesign their glass and film options (we’ve heard rumors of some manufacturers recalling product), we’re standing by our designs to avoid the curve.

    Check out this video demonstration below for a live look at how our Ballistic Glass (at 60mm width) provides seamless coverage vs. a Zagg screen protector (at 64mm) which produces the less-desirable halo effect.

    That being said, what about those customers who are willing to pay a little bit more for a COMPLETE edge-to-edge solution? Tech Armor recognizes that a flat glass or film solution offers the lowest possible price, but some customers are willing to invest more… we have not ignored this demand!

  • 6 Unofficial Facts About The Samsung Galaxy S7

    The official unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S7 is going to be on February 21st, but in the lead-up to the main event itself a lot of information about it has been “leaked” as a way to drive up buzz.  The following tidbits are currently floating around the technology pressrooms (and keep in mind that all these facts map prove untrue):

    1. 1. The Micro USB Remains

    While the new Type C USB cables were all the buzz at CES in January, it seems that Samsung has decided not to incorporate this new universal standard as a recently leaked image shows the phone with the same standard connection as the GS6 model.

    1. 2. Water Proof?

    With the debate still ongoing as to whether the S7 Edge+ will remain available or if the S7 Edge will stand alone, one interesting feature seems to be included on the new models: water resistance! It appear someone "accidentally" leaked this video, on an unlisted Samsung Indonesia channel showing "The Next Galaxy" with no actual mention of the phone model. The sustained shots of the phone in the rain could confirm the rumor that this new model is water proof (or at least resistant).

    1. 3. The Price Is Lower

    According to a European rumor mill, the Galaxy S7 is going to retail at 699 euros, and the S7 Edge will add 100 to that for a total of 799.  This is roughly 50 euros less than how much the Galaxy S6 cost when it was first introduced, and it undercuts the iPhone S6 by about the same as well.  Thus, unless Apple plans on cutting its own prices for the iPhone S7 by the same mount, the Galaxy is going to be seriously cheaper.  The exact numbers in American dollars aren’t out just yet, perhaps in part due to the way every carrier has a slightly different price, but it’s expected to follow Europe’s example.

    1. 4. The Battery Is Bigger

    This one we’ve got a pretty good grasp on since it’s a government agency disclosing some official information.  While previous models of the Samsung Galaxy were content with 2600 mAh, the new S7 is going to jump up to 3600 mAh.  This means the S7 can provide 6 more hours of calls, 5 more hours of video playback, or 19 more hours of audio playback than the S6,

    1. 5. The Glass Animal Is Different

    Instead of sticking with the industry standard Gorilla Glass, the Galaxy S7 may be using a new variety called Turtle Glass, a name which Samsung registered with the US Patent and Trademark Office back in September of 2015.  According to some rumors, Turtle Glass may even be a real contender for the toughest mobile device glass available and not just a way for Samsung to insource its glass production.

    1. 6. The Camera Size Is Changing

    Physically, the Galaxy S7’s camera is going to be smaller and flush with the back of the phone instead of sticking out the way it does with the S6.  However, this smaller size may have led to a smaller resolution – unless it hasn’t.  The current Galaxy S6 uses a 16 megapixel resolution, and while some rumors expect this to grow to 20 megapixels, others claim it will drop to 12 instead.  Either way, it’s expected that the color depth and light balance technology will be taking a step forward.

    Something else you can expect to be coming out soon is Tech Armor’s Galaxy S7 screen protectors and accessories.  While Turtle Glass may turn out to be tougher than the original Gorilla, the fact is that glass is still glass and a bad drop onto concrete or a sandy beach will likely mean an expensive repair or replacement, and even if it’s covered under your warranty it’ll mean having to wait days as the phone goes through a round trip for its repairs.  But if a screen protector takes the damage instead, you’re only out a few dollars while your phone is still good to go.

    Statement:  Samsung is leaking like a faucet as the Galaxy S7 prepares for primetime.
