Samsung is still reeling from its losses with the Samsung Note 7 being pulled out due to battery defects. But, that will not stop the tech giant from releasing a new addition to their smartphone line – the Samsung Galaxy S8.

There have been speculations about the S8 sporting a curved design in two sizes. There are also rumors about the device’s screen resolution moving to 4K. We’re also expecting Android 7.1 with TouchWiz for the software. Release date will most likely fall on February 2017.

IPHONE WITH GLASS ENCLOSURES

Apple Insider reports that Foxconn, Apple’s manufacturing partner, is planning to design the new iPhone model with an all-glass enclosure. This new design may be a part of the company’s plans for their 10th anniversary.

The all-glass chassis will be backed by an AMOLED display, which they are already using on their smartwatches. While the all-glass chassis will be heavier than the usual aluminum casing, the AMOLED display will make up for it. The company expects this to give a new feeling of freshness to their smartphones.

ADVANCED HEALTH-TRACKING HARDWARE FROM APPLE

The company is said to be in the works of looking for suppliers that will finalize the production of the health device. Whether it’s a new smartphone or a new smartwatch, we’re bound to find out next year.

A great deal of changes are set to happen in the coming months, and this makes 2017 even more exciting. We can only hope for the best to come.
