With Samsung acquiring US-based Harman International Industries today, for US$8 billion, we can’t help but hope for a Harman Kardon powered speakers on Samsung Galaxy S8, for which a revamp in Audio department was already on the rumor cards.
Only recently, we heard whispers about Galaxy S8 Audio being given a serious boost by Samsung, and today’s acquisition, largest among foreign deals, makes the picture more clearer.
It’s being reported that Samsung plans to use the Harman’s tech for its Internet of Things (IoT) stuff, so why not Galaxy S8 too, as it will be a major part of the all things IoT.
We know it amply clear that Samsung is betting big, really big, on the Galaxy S8 to revive its fortunes, given the fallen Note 7 project and resulting losses due to that, so all of this makes for a greater possibility of Samsung harboring the brand name and what should be visibly greater Audio boost thanks to Harman Kardon tech for the Galaxy S8.
Galaxy S8 is expected to be powered by the best of specs available, like the Snapdragon 830 processor/Exynos 8895, 6GB RAM, Quad HD display (5.2″/5.7″/6.2″), 64GB storage, etc. and should come pre-installed with Android 7.1 Nougat. Speaking of which, Samsung recently started the beta rollout for Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, while has began development internally for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
