Samsung Galaxy S8 may launch with 3 month unconditional refund period; new screen resolution options emerge

This essentially means that you will be able to use the Samsung Galaxy S8 and return in for the refund within three months regardless the condition of the device.


The launch date of the highly-anticipated flagship of the year, Samsung Galxy S8 is approaching fast. With each day we get new leaks related to the smartphone. According to the latest reports, Samsung will launch the S8 along with a 3-month unconditional refund offer. This essentially means that you will be able to use the Galaxy S8 and return in for the refund within three months regardless the condition of the device. The company will not ask any questions or demand any explanations about the return.

This seems to be too good to be true but the report by Gizmochina points out that this is supposed to show Samsung's confidence in its flagship after the Samsung Note 7 fiasco last year. There is no official confirmation about this offer at the time of writing. In addition to this offer, screen resolution options were spotted on the S8 where one can change the resolution of the screen.

This comes days after new press images were posted by prolific tipster Evan Blass on Twitter. The new photos show how Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will look like in the three colour variants, ‘Black Sky’, ‘Orchid Grey', and 'Arctic Silver.'

This is not the first time that we have seen the photos of the upcoming flagship but this is the first time we are seeing images of other colour variants in renders. According to previous leaks, the standard Galaxy S8 would feature a 5.8-inch screen while the larger smartphone tagged as the Galaxy S8+ would come with a 6.2-inch display. Both displays would feature a WQHD+ resolution of 2,960 x 2,400 pixels and would be dual-edge curved displays.

Samsung is not going in for a dual lens, dual ISP format either. According to Kuo, Samsung thinks that the current day dual-camera ISP design is “immature” so both the S8 and S8+ will arrive with 12MP rear camera and an 8MP front-facing unit. As previously reported, the company may add a rear camera with embedded DRAM that can allow slow-mo recording up to 1000 frames per second.
