Samsung Galaxy S8: The Battery Problem

Less than two weeks to the fateful presentation of Galaxy S8, which, as has become notorious at all, will take place on March 29 in New York. A wait becomes spasmodic because until the end of January it was hoped that Samsung would present its Top of the range at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Then the bitter truth and a postponement of a month. As a result, sales will be further postponed in April, presumably the 28. Although, it is not excluded that the date might be 21 April, with pre-sale online on April 7 or 10.

What’s with all this delay? It is spoken mainly by an increased focus to Galaxy S8 after the resounding flop of 7 Notes. Initially, it was believed for greater accuracy on the battery. But this is only part of the reason. Technically, the Korean giant has faced another battery problem.

Among the main features of the Galaxy S8, we find the double curved screen for both versions, two very fast processors and an improved camera.

While the battery should not benefit from any special enhancements. It will also be almost in full screen, with minimal frames and AMOLED display with an integrated Home button. But Samsung has tried to add the fingerprint scanner on screen. The Korean giant has invested heavily in new technology Synaptics last year and, according to the British portal, has postponed the release date of one month to persevere in this purpose.

Unfortunately, there was nothing to do and so had to give it up by placing the scanner in the rear of Galaxy S8. A choice that may cause Galaxy S8 problems for users, since smartphones owners consider it awkward. However, Samsung does not give up and will try again with the next devices. We know that time is running out.
