When the phone was launched, Galaxy S8 did not come with the Portrait Mode feature that Apple made popular with the launch of iPhone 7 last year. As the company uttered recently, portrait mode will be introduced with a new software update. It is part of the new device structure, a metamorphosis of many aspects of Samsung phones.
For now, Galaxy Note 8 is the only Samsung flagship phone to have it, Galaxy S8 doesn’t have a dual-camera setup. So, like the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, the S8′s camera will have bokeh effects using this new software setup.
Samsung’s customer service representative has already claimed that next update is about to have the portrait mode feature, “there is no information yet, but we hope,” he wrote in an email to the clientele “that you will get portrait mode update with the next SW”.
Apple made portrait mode popular with iPhone 7 Plus, which allows clicking photos of a focused object against a blurred background.
As for specs, Samsung Galaxy S8 has a 5.8-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, an Exynos 8895 processor with 64GB internal storage (expandable 264GB) and 4GB RAM.
It has a 12-megapixel rear camera and 8-megapixel front selfie snapper. It supports Samsung’s voice assistant – Bixby. The Galaxy S8 is powered by a 3,000mAh battery and includes Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box with TouchWiz UI.
With new revelations and reports now Samsung is keeping up the high Buzz for its coming flagships successfully. There is a huge market awaiting new Android sets from Samsung in its leading flagships. An overhaul of software and an inclusion with hot features are going to help the company stay strong in coming times.
