Samsung Galaxy S8 Might Feature A 4K Resolution With Support For VR
With the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung might be planning to create a standard with the Samsung Galaxy S8 rather than following the pattern of the predecessors which they have actually been doing for quite sometime now especially in terms of display.
Most QHD screens you find on most high end devices like the Samsung Galaxy S7 features a resolution of 1440 x 2560px. But with the upcoming Galaxy S8, Samsung might be working on a UHD display with a resolution of 2160 x 3840.
The main reason why Samsung is pushing for such high resolution on the S8 is because the company is planning on making the device feature a 4K display with support for VR straight out of the box. When you think of these, the next thing that comes to your mind is how much pressure this might have on the battery consumption. The Galaxy S7 users who installed the Oculus VR app on their phone can really attest to this considering how fast their battery drained after installing the app.
Although Sony once featured a UHD display on its Sony Xperia Z5 Premium, but the 2160 x 3840 resolution was only limited to taking pictures and videos with the phone's camera, while other phone activities was on a resolution of 1080 x 1920 FHD.
Samsung might also go the way of Apple by dropping the regular 3.5mm jack. Since the USB type C also has an audio output capability just like the lighting conector on an iOS device. And the device is most likely going to feature the latest Corning gorilla glass 5 protection.
