The Samsung Galaxy S8 will be home to a much improved 'selfie' camera, reports suggest, as the phone-maker's plans for its next-generation Galaxy S handset really begin to take shape.

Sources in Korea claim the front-facing camera on the Galaxy S8 will feature an autofocus function, putting it well out in front of secondary cameras on the iPhone 7 and Google Pixel.

Using autofocus, instead of standard fixed-focus technology, would mean selfies look a lot sharper. It could also help to ensure group shots don’t become a blurry mess.

At the moment, mobile-manufacturers tend to differentiate their front-facing cameras by adding more megapixels, which makes little difference when it comes to delivering in-focus selfies.

Other key features of the Galaxy S8 are said to include a new dual-lens rear camera, 256GB of storage, a Siri–beating virtual assistant powered by Viv Labs and an optical fingerprint scanner positioned behind the device’s display.

The Galaxy S8 is due to launch at Mobile World Congress in February.
