Samsung Galaxy S8 Unboxed And Coming On April 21

#Samsung #GalaxyS8 – Samsung Galaxy S8 Unboxed And Coming On April 21 : The Samsung Galaxy S8 is finally here… almost. As expected, the Korean conglomerate unveiled its latest flagship smartphone at the Unpacked 2017 event held yesterday, March 29. Pre-orders for the handset will start on the 31st while the device itself will be shipped to U.S. shores come April 21. This gives fans three weeks to ponder on their decision while waiting for their orders to be delivered.

There’s little to debate about regarding the features and specifications of the Galaxy S8. On paper, the smartphone is arguably one of the best ever. Understandably, some people may be having second thoughts about purchasing the smartphone because of Samsung’s recent bad rep courtesy of recalls, arrests, and exploding batteries.

It’s undeniable, however, that the highly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S8 is a beautiful piece of machinery. The svelte look of the Galaxy S8 is both surprising and not. Despite the number of rumors and leaks showing the design of the Galaxy S8, seeing and holding the actual device still fuels awe and amazement. The Samsung Galaxy S8 combines glass and metal perfectly while giving its users more space to work on with its huge 5.8-inch screen (6.2 inches for the S8 Plus) packed in a rather lithe body. The bezels are distinctly slimmer, the sides are curved and the physical home button is gone.

Another feature that got an impressive upgrade is its front camera. The Galaxy S8 now sports an 8MP front-facing camera, up from the S7’s 5MP. The rear camera, however, remained at 12MP.

Samsung also introduced its Bixby voice assistant. The company claims that Bixby is capable of doing more as compared to other digital assistants, though, for now, it will only work with certain Samsung apps.

The biggest concern with the Galaxy S8, as CBS noted, is its battery. Samsung acknowledged the embarrassment of the Galaxy Note 7 when its executives explained that the company implemented new and better standards and procedures including an eight-point battery check for their devices starting with the Galaxy S8.

The Verge stated that Samsung did not announce a fixed price for the flagship smartphone. This is a common practice of the Korean tech company which prefers that carriers dictate the actual retail price. However, many estimate the smartphone to be available for no less than $720. While the price will depend on the carriers, what is set in stone is that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will come on April 21.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Leaks: Photos Of Device And Official Cases Confirms Rumors

#SamsungGalaxy #GalaxyS8 – Samsung Galaxy S8 Leaks: Photos Of Device And Official Cases Confirms Rumors : The Samsung Galaxy S8 is proclaimed by most tech experts as the company’s make or break device after the disastrous recall of its previous generation phablet offering, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Being the first flagship to be launched right after the exploding battery issue means that the company would have to make sure that it impresses its consumers for it to regain its reputation as one of the leading smartphone manufacturers in the world.

Given that Samsung will likely be putting all of its efforts in the creation of the next Galaxy S flagship, there is a lot of expectations for some very innovative features to be included. Several news leaks, via Android Pure, has now revealed that Samsung has indeed pulled out all the stops with their upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 device.

Some of the images that were shown by the website features some live images of the device’s official cases. The cases confirms that Samsung will indeed be transferring the fingerprint scanner to the back of the device. The move is of course to free up space for an edge-to-edge display that will likely be covering the entire front of the new Samsung Galaxy S8. Other leaked images obtained by Venture Beat allegedly showcased the front of the device, which does show that it has no home button. The edge-to-edge display, being referred to as an “infinity screen,” covers the entire front part of the device with its edges curving towards the back.

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 will reportedly be offered in two variants, namely a 5.8-inch model and a 6.2-inch model called the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. Both devices were previously expected to be unveiled at the upcoming 2017 Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in Barcelona, Spain. However, Samsung’s Koh Dong-jin had confirmed that they won’t be unveiling the devices at the event this month like the previous Galaxy S smartphones.

Here are 8 rumored features of the Samsung Galaxy S8, S8 edge, and S8 Plus

#GalaxyS8 #GalaxyS8Edge – Here are 8 rumored features of the Samsung Galaxy S8, S8 edge, and S8 Plus : By now, it’s no longer news that Samsung will most definitely unveil the Galaxy S8, the Galaxy S8 edge, and probably the Galaxy S8 Plus in late February 2017. We even went out on a limb a few months ago and guesstimated that this will happen on February 26, 2017. Remains to be seen if we nailed this one on the head, but we digress.

>Lots of saucy rumors regarding Samsung’s next phones have been making headlines during the past few months and that trend will definitely continue until said devices get unveiled. Edge-to-edge bezel-busting displays, fingerprint scanners embedded in the display itself, dual-lens cameras – most of these have been pegged as essential Galaxy S8 features, and truth be told, they are doing a pretty good job at keeping our expectations high, though the latter is nothing but a double-edged sword.

So, what are the top 8 hottest features that the Galaxy S8, the S8 edge, and the rumored S8 Plus will allegedly come with?

1. Larger displays with minimal bezels

It seems like most insiders agree Samsung is about to seriously shake things up in the design department this time. While some claim the phone will carry a futuristic all-screen bezel-less display, we are not entirely convinced that this will be the case. It’s much more plausible that Samsung will throw edge displays on all upcoming Galaxy S8 variations, which will somewhat cover the “bezel-busting” part, but it’s safe to assume that the devices will still feature top and bottom bezels though these will likely be downscaled by a significant margin.

2. Fingerprint scanner embedded within the display

The required technology is already out there so there’s stopping Samsung from utilizing a fingerprint scanner embedded in the display itself. This will not only allow Samsung to ditch its signature oval home button and shed some bulk off the front. We are most probably talking about Qualcomm’s Sense ID fingerprint sensor, which can be placed almost anywhere on a device as it is capable of reading your fingertips through glass, metal, or plastic. Other component manufacturers, like CrucialTek and Synaptics, have also developed similar fingerprint sensors that sound just like something that should make its way to the Galaxy S8 & Co.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Leaked Photo: No Home Button, Almost No Bezels; Reported April Release [VIDEO]

#Samsung #GalaxyS8 – Samsung Galaxy S8 Leaked Photo: No Home Button, Almost No Bezels; Reported April Release [VIDEO] : The Samsung Galaxy S8 leaked photo surfaced on a Korean website revealing no home button to achieve an end-to-end display where the bezels are almost gone. Moreover, the design changes have reportedly pushed back the expected release during the Mobile World Congress in February to April 18.

A new leak appeared on SamMobile reportedly referring to the Samsung Galaxy S8 with a new design. The leaked photo reveals what have been previously reported as elaborated below.

Samsung Galaxy S8 New Design

The leak reveals that the bezels are almost gone in the latest Samsung Galaxy S8 with 90 percent screen-to-body ratio, GSM Arena has learned. To make way for an end-to-end display, the home button will have to be removed.

In lieu of the home button is a full screen mode that will activate the navigation keys. Moreover, the fingerprint sensor could have been relocated at the back or more likely, embedded under the glass.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Release

The new design of the Samsung Galaxy S8 could mean longer production time, which now pushes the release date not during the MWC 2017, but on April 18.

Samsung will have a separate event in New York in March to launch the Samsung Galaxy S8, but release to the U.S. market will still be a month later, iDigital Times reported. This particular timetable in releasing a flagship phone actually has a precedent with the S6 on Apr. 10, S5 on Apr. 11 and the S4 on Apr. 27.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Rumors

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is perhaps the most widely rumored, leaked and talked about phone, indicating that interest remains high on the South Korean’s latest flagship phone. The leak remains unconfirmed with SamMobile questioning the product as possibly “a photoshop wizardry.”

Moreover, a leak in October indicates that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will have a dual-lens camera, no home button and enables a 3D effect with its end-to-end screen, the Daily Mail has learned. Sources also say the Samsung has upgraded its Application Process, which is directly linked to the device’s brain.

Galaxy Note 8 Under Development; Samsung Learns Lessons From Exploding Galaxy Note 7 Phones

#GalaxyNote8 #GalaxyNote7 – Galaxy Note 8 Under Development; Samsung Learns Lessons From Exploding Galaxy Note 7 Phones : Samsung is giving away an extreme promo that will grant Galaxy Note 7 owners the opportunity to trade in their faulty devices to get either a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note 8 for next year at a discounted price.

This just means that Samsung has also unofficially announced the upcoming arrival of the next generation in the Note series. As of now, the promo is still available to customers in South Korea, and it’s still uncertain whether it will be launched in other countries affected by the Note 7 issue. As of now the company is still keeping itself quiet about further details about the program.

Samsung has learned its lesson

As per reports, Note 7 owners who will participate will only have 50% of the costs for the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge returned when turning in their Note 7s. But when the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note 8 rolls out, they will then be eligible to exchange their defective devices for either one of the upcoming new flagships.

Although things seem unclear, it looks as if Samsung has finally learned its lesson and will be showing confidence in showing to the world that they are still one of the leading smartphone producers in the world. Along with that, it would also confirm that the Note series will not be discontinued anytime soon.

Samsung is going to get back on top anytime next year
