The fans of Samsung and android will be delighted to know this as it will be a revolutionary design from the smartphone maker. There are tons of rumors floating around and let’s address some of them here today.

Let us have a look at the features it is speculated to pack.

Android Nougat : It is supposed to pack Android Nougat and it makes sense as Android O is not available widely till now.

The usual Touchwiz : Samsung always packs their android phones with Touchwiz, the UI from Samsung that runs over Android. It gives Samsung phones a unique interface and sets it apart from other android mobiles.
