The Galaxy S7 edge is the best phone of the year and the Note 7 was also expected to win a host of awards before it was pulled from sale.
Not only is the S8 expected to feature a bigger screen, improved camera and curved display but it could also be the fastest Android phone ever made.
Qualcomm are one of the world’s biggest suppliers of chips and you’ll find their brains in almost every Android phone on the market.
The next-generation chip will be called the Snapdragon 835 and it will be the most powerful Qualcomm has ever created.
Not only will the 835 be super speedy but it will also be more efficient meaning it should help performance and battery life.
Qualcomm is now working with Samsung to make it the thinnest mobile processor around today.
This slim build is incredibly important when designing next-generation smartphones, as it means companies can plan thinner devices, allowing for bigger batteries and more hardware features.
The first devices to feature the Snapdragon 835 should appear in the first quarter of 2017, meaning that the Samsung Galaxy S8 is a prime candidate.
Rumours are continuing to build around Samsung’s next flagship smartphone, which could also feature a completely new design.
There will also be a larger device, the Galaxy S8 plus, which may be the company’s biggest device to date, reportedly sporting a 6.2 inch nearly edge-to-edge display.
However Samsung fans may have slightly longer to wait for their next upgrade.
The company normally reveals its new flagship at the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona, most recently the Galaxy S7 back in March.
However sources now claim that Samsung is now taking extra care to avoid a repeat of the fiasco surrounding the Galaxy Note 7 launch.
