samsung galaxy s8 2

We probably ain’t going to see the Galaxy S8 until February or March next year, but that hasn’t stopped loose-lipped sources, including Samsung’s own execs, spilling the beans on the firm’s next flagship smartphone.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Samsung’s Vice Chairman Lee Jae-Yong has let slip that the Galaxy S8 will feature a “slick” new design, an improved camera, and an enhanced artificial intelligence (AI) service.

What’s more, with the iPhone 7 now official and Samsung own Galaxy Note 7 discontinued after, er, setting on fire, many buyers are likely holding out to see what Samsung’s new smartphone has in store.
