Samsung surprised everybody when they announced that their flagship for 2017, the Galaxy S8, will be officially introduced at the end of March, not February, like we were expecting.
Right now, there’s still a lot of time left for rumors to thrive, but it seems like the price and the availability, as well as other features, were already revealed, thanks to an industry insider!
Specifically, the South Korean and Chinese versions of the Samsung Galaxy S8 will have 6 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of internal storage. As for the price, the 64 GB variant will retail at CNY 6,088, which is roughly $885, while the latter will cost a bit more – CNY 6,488 (about $943).
S8’s CMOS may support Dual ADC.IMX204 support Dual ADC.But S8’s CMOS is not IMX204,I think.BTW,IMX204 is 20MP 1/1.7,it’s not for smartphones

Moving on to Europe and other markets, they will be able to pick a third variant of the flagship, with 4 GB of RAM and 64 gigs of storage, with a price tag of about €850.
maybe Chinese and Koran version are only with 6GB RAM,6+64/6+128.that’s why I say a little different.

Finally, the same source mentioned a few details about the camera! Even though it won’t have a dual setup, we will see Dual ADC, which should, at least in theory, enable better color depth, resulting incredibly crisp and clear images. Also, it seems that the sensor won’t be Sony’s IMX2014, which has a resolution of 20 MP and f/1.7 aperture.
Recently, a couple of renders, based on rumors, revealed that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will have a bezel-less display, no physical home button, a metal build and, finally, a fingerprint scanner mounted on the back, alongside the single camera setup.
