Apparently, Samsung Galaxy S8 is being built under the codename Project Dream. Expectations are high that the S8 will come with major design changes, display improvements, better processing specs and probably come with an iris scanner as well as Android Nougat, just to name but a few. But most of all, the handset is expected to delve much deeper into the newest virtual reality and augmented reality technologies. In this regards, the Galaxy S8 will supposedly come with a 4K display screen.
Virtual reality and augmented reality are the major reasons Samsung will shift from the current 2K resolutions to 4K resolutions. In fact, it is thought that the Project Dream codename has a lot to do with Google’s Daydream VR platform.
With the future still unknown, Samsung would be happy to proof the phone against any such standards should they emerge. This is even backed by the fact that Samsung showed off a 5.5-inch 4K display screen that is meant for VR content during the SID Display Week back in May, but this was just a prototype that may take some time before coming to life.
