In 2017, the Galaxy S8 arrived a month later than usual, but this time the Korean manufacturer is getting back to its 2016 release frames. The new flagship is expected to come with Exynos 9810 chipset, stereo speakers and dual camera for the Plus version.
The smaller one will have only one 12 MP camera, but it will come with a variable aperture that switches between f/1.5 and f/2.4.
