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.
