Samsung Galaxy S8 could get 4K screen

Market analysis, wishful thinking, or both? Whichever the case, Samsung's 2017 flagship might very well bear, not the first, a 4K screen. That is the prediction being made by some analysts like UBI Research, based on trends and current production capabilities.
