Samsung’s Project Dream is the Galaxy S8 with a 4K VR-ready display

Samsung fans might be focused on the Galaxy Note 7 right now but once this flagship is unveiled on August 2 they will start to think about the Galaxy S8 which won’t arrive until early next year. There have been some rumors about this handset already and the latest out of China suggest that the Galaxy S8 is referred to internally at Samsung as Project Dream. The Galaxy S8 is also said to have a VR-ready 4K display.

If the rumors are to be believed, the Galaxy S8 will be Samsung’s first consumer handset with a 4K VR display. Samsung already demonstrated its 5.5-inch 4K display for VR earlier this year so it won’t be surprising to see that display in the company’s next flagship. The Galaxy S8 is also rumored to have certification for Google’s Daydream VR standard which also requires devices to have a suite of sensors to prove an even better VR experience. Not a lot of information is available about the Galaxy S8 right now but we will surely hear more about it in the months to come. It’s too soon to be sure right now when Samsung is going to launch the Galaxy S8 but if history is any indication, we’re bound to see it early next year.

Galaxy S8 already? Too early to talk about it but yeah expect more rumours & news about it right after the Note 7′s launch.

.. engineers continue to work on 8K, so maybe all the 22 year old global-warming cell phone owners should slow down, and not buy every gimmick-laced trinket ever made..

For virtual reality this is very important, man… Even 16k should be considered (for virtual reality), because everything you see on your display get’s less sharp in virtual reality, because of the pixel density (which get’s lower).

I only buy the note for the size, I NEVER use the Damn pen. If Samsung make an S8 plus, which isn’t idiot curved,like the silly Note 7, I’d gladly go back to the S series to be honest.

If it 4k only when watching 4k stuff and VR with at least 5000mah, then its bearable nut not great

4K display, but please make sure that your processors(CPU/GPU) are up to snuff without affecting frame rates and overall performance, Samsung. Battery life should never be compromised. RAM management better be fixed. That’s all I ask…
