After the successful sales of all their present generation Galaxy S7 series this year, things went from pretty well for Samsung until disaster strikes when their highly anticipated Note 7 were battered with explosion issues.

While this for sure taught Samsung some harsh lessons, the South Korean giant is now rather concentrating on their next generation of Galaxy devices which is due for release in February 2017.

While the Mobile World Congress that takes place in Barcelona every year, let's see what Samsung is preparing with the news of Samsung Galaxy S8.

Samsung Galaxy S8, if that would be the successor to the S7, will be the upcoming flagship smartphone of the South Korean firm that would reportedly come out with an interactive voice assistant and IRIS scanner.

Alongside a completely new design, as usual there would be two variants with its other variant the more expensive one coming out with the curved edge display and better features.

A report from revealed that the Samsung S8 edition would be the biggest they've manufactured featuring a whopping 6+ inch display, which would no longer be called a phone but a 'Phablet'.

The report also confirmed that the processors would indeed be the Snapdragon 835 from Qualcomm . Alongside the processor, a smart voice assistant Viv will also be equipped rivalling their own partners Google and Apple.

Following Apple's courageous suit of eliminating the 3.5 mm audio jack, Samsung is expected to do the same. Samsung is also expected to make sure their next generation smartphones to mandatorily undergo rigorous testing before letting them out to the markets thereby avoiding another potential Note 7 debacle.
