In spite of that, the Galaxy S8 won't officially launch for another two weeks, which means LG G6 Android smartphone has even more time to steal tech enthusiasts from its biggest competitor.

Once owners of the Samsung Galaxy devices are able to successfully download the Nougat update, they can proceed to try out some of the notable additions included.

Samsung's game plan for 2017 involves manufacturing thousands of prototypes, testing it internally for quality and performance, and then handing it over to major customers like mobile network players to get an idea of market response. Samsung Electronics has paid attention to high-speed shooting technology unlike rivals that focused on dual cameras or the number of pixels. This results in a dramatic overhaul for the Korean flagship, with thinner bezels and no apparent way to unlock the phone. Not too long ago, Samsung's upcoming virtual assistant Bixby was also leaked in a trademark application.

However, the company has not revealed a date for the global rollout of the flagship devices.


But Samsung could be about to totally change things up with their next handset. Inside is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 processor and 4 GB of RAM.

Some of the units are nearly certainly going to feature the company's custom built Exynos 8895 chip while others may use Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 835 processor manufactured by Samsung. No word on other markets yet. According to the source, an added 3.7MP RGB camera sensor will be included on the phone's frontside for scanning purposes, alongside an 8MP front-facing camera for general use. The selfie lenses adapt better to low-light settings than earlier generations.

The next report could settle contradicting rumors about the RAM memory that Samsung will equip the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus with.

Nonetheless, successful registrations will give users a QR code that will act as a quick-track entry ticket to the Galaxy S8's main event. The standard model will reportedly have a starting price of $850, with the high-end version jumping to $950.
