Curved edge screen? Already proven useless by the S7 Edge. Fingerprint sensor on the back? Great location next to the camera lens (smudges) and not particularly good for mobile payments.
Samsung, like all Android vendors, is limited in terms of what they can announce. We already know what's in Android Nougat, so no surprises there. That leaves them with useless hardware gimmicks to try and separate themselves from all the other Abdroid vendors running the same commodity OS.
I don't see the S8 doing well.
At this point it's all useless hardware gimmicks, for everyone.
What consumers want is: solid build, waterproof, longer battery, better camera, longer battery, and a longer battery.
What we see is: thinner, battery gimmicks, other gimmicks, more battery gimmicks.
If they released the iPhone Phatt - 2mm thicker and 5x the battery life. Guess what would sell the most of any phone ever!
But at least Samsung has that Iris scanner.
