Samsung has confirmed the launching date of Galaxy S8, which is April 21st 2017 for US and April 28th 2017 for rest of the world. In this article we will do full review of Samsung Galaxy S8.
This phone is the beginning of a new chapter for Samsung. There is no home button on the phone. This is something new for Samsung. All the future generations yet to come like Galaxy Note 8 or Galaxy S9 won’t have a home button.
Samsung priced Galaxy S8 at 835 USD. S8 is an Android OS, version 7.0 Octacore along with GSM/HSPA 3G/ LTE technology with non-removable Li-Ion 3000mAh battery.
The build quality of this phone is very similar to the last year’s Galaxy S7 edge. Though, it does have this new addition of the finger print scanner. Initially Samsung announced that it will place the fingerprint scanner at the front display, but it could not do so and is now placing it at the back.
Samsung Galaxy S8 is a really handy phone with a 5.8” wide screen also known as infinity display. The phone is very light in weight, 155g and 8mm thick to be precise. The phones back is made up of gorilla glass 5 back. S8 has a 3D touch, super AMOLED touch screen which contains 16M colors with an internal memory of 64GB ROM and 4GB RAM and it also supports an external Micro SD card up to 256GB.
The primary camera is 12MP and the secondary camera is 8MP with the options of auto focus, face/smile detection, OLS, Auto HDR, paranormal, Geo-Tagging which can also record 4k video.
The biggest new software feature of S8 is its personal assistant called Bixby. This application software does all the same things that Google Assistant does but by Samsung instead of by Google. It will show you a bunch of cards/tabs in an order that is relevant to you so it tries to show you information that it thinks is important before you need it. You can access Bixby by swiping over your home screen just like Google but in this phone Bixby has its own button on the side of the phone. However S8 still is an android 7.0 so you can also use Google Assistant on it.
Overall as a package Galaxy S8 is pretty much impressive, promising and optimistic phone and it will take you beyond the limits of any other phone out there. It is expected to be the best phone of year 2017.
With so many features it is expected to revive reputation of Samsung that was being deteriorated by Samsung Galaxy S7.
