Meet the Samsung Flagship Galaxy S8 and S8+

After much speculation, Samsung has finally  launched the Galaxy S8. We can now forget the Note 7 fiasco.  This will be the toughest test ever for the world’s biggest smartphone maker.

The main features of the new device include an “infinity display” with almost no bezel curved edge, new voice assistant and a 12 megapixel back camera. The phone comes in two variants with different screen sizes — the 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 and 6.2-inch Galaxy S8 Plus.

The display has a resolution of 2960 x 1440. The Galaxy S8 (both models) comes powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core SoC in US( Exynos octa-core for other international markets). Other features include 12MP rear camera, 8MP front-facing camera, 3,000 mAh battery (3,500 mAh battery on Plus model), USB-C charging port, 3.5mm headphone jack, ( what a huge relief ), IP68 water and dust resistance capability, support for wireless charging, Bluetooth 5.0, 4G RAM, and support for LTE Cat 16. It runs Android 7.0 with TouchWiz interface.

 

Cutting-edge features to do the things you love faster, easier and better.

Samsung also revealed Bixby, a smart voice assistant to compete with Apple’s Siri. It has a specific button on the side to access it. It will be able to answer questions you ask, but Samsung highlighted how it’s different. One use case involved taking a picture of a monument and Bixby being able to tell you information about this as well as recommendations of restaurants nearby.

It’s stunning revolutionary design which you will appreciate in every edge of this Samsung galaxy S8 and S8+. You will going to love this from inside out, smooth and pure content with no bezel and the size is perfect that is easy to hold in just one hand.

For uninterrupted and immersive experiences, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ sets a new standard for its Infinity Display. Screen size expanded but not too large or “bulky” if you want to call it. The Big Screen  perfectly fit in your gentle hands. The Curves that you can immediately notice the smooth on it, giving you more comfortable grip while you do what you love like watching movies on its large screen.

I was excited when the announcement of Mac OS X Yosemite Beta was out and open to public testing, but I was not able to download, I am guessing because there are many people like myself who wants to get their hands on the new OS from Apple and their server was not able to accommodate the demand.
