Samsung To Launch Galaxy S8 And S8 Plus In India Today

The most striking feature of the new phones is what Samsung dubs an "infinity display" - an expanded glass screen that covers the entire front of the device and appears to curve seamlessly around its edges. The Galaxy S8 gets a 3,000mAh battery whereas the Galaxy S8+ offers a 3,500mAh battery.

Now talking about the specifications of the phones, both of them are very similar. LCD panels usually have three sub pixels (red, blue, green) but with the Galaxy S8's OLED panel, you have two sub pixels - red-green and blue-green.

After getting their hands on the Samsung Galaxy S8, several customers in Korea wrote on online communities that their phone's screen was reddish. The smartphones also come with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of onboard storage, and support 256GB expandable storage through a microSD card. The USP of both the devices, however, is the display on the front.


Kuo adds that he believes the Note 8's potential dual camera will be superior to the one found on the iPhone 7 Plus, and could match the one that Apple is expected to fit to the iPhone 8 with OLED display due out later this year. The aspect ratio is a little different and hence the resolution as well, coming in at 1440 x 2960. With a dedicated button on the side of the phone, users will be able to ask Bixby to perform any task, from placing calls to recommending restaurants nearby to changing the device's settings.

The two Samsung smartphones are the first flagships since the fateful Samsung Galaxy Note 7, and will determine how the public perceives the brand after the debacle. They come with a radical bezel-less design with an "Infinity display" that covers nearly the entire front panel of the device. Whether the handset will be running a newer version of Android upon launch is unclear at this time, though we can hope for as much.
