Unlike Apple which always manages to keep its latest i-Products away from leaks and people only come to know about the products only in Launch events.Samsung however couldnt control the leaks about its latest Galaxy S8 and S8 plus.Before even the smartphone launched the public already knew how the phone looks what are its specs how does it look etc.
Samsung Finally brought the S8 and S8+ out from its factories and officially launched the two superphone in the “Unbox your Phone “event.The S8 and S8+ launch also marked samsung’s return after the sad recall of the Galaxy Note 7.Which forced Samsung to have a peek in its battery technology and improve it namely the 8-point battery safe check for its all future devices.
- Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ also mark the change in Samsung’s design strategy since the Galaxy S6.In the S8 series the metal and glass body is evem more refined it is a lot slimmer than its previous generations and there is no longer a seperate edge model both the Samsung S8 and S8+ come with dual edge screens.And a prety unusual screen resolution which lands the S8 lineup between the 2k-4k resolutions.
- The Display is the main attraction of the smartphone the dual edge display is nearly an edge to edge (bazel less) display which is packed with pixels.The Screen aspect ratio is a bit odd at 18.5:9 which are also superAmoled.
- Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are the worlds first to launch the snapdragon 835 chipset.
- New battery technology with 8-point battery safe.d h
- Fingerprint scanner and home button shifted at the back of the device.

The most talked about features of the S8 and S8 plus are Its new and improved UI and its artifical assistant Bixny.Both the galaxy devices run on Android Nougat 7.0 overlayed by samsung’s custom overlay known as Grace UX which was formally introduced in the Note 7.We are sp=o glad that samsung switched from its older UI the touchwiz hat most of its users hated.The new UI is lighter and has a few design tweeks the icons are even more rounded,the app drawer the swipe up pixel style the navagation buttons have also been changed as now they are on screen buttons and can be interswitched.Samsung Connect is also a new feature added that helps you gain control of all the smart devices and applications from the same hub that hepls not switching from app to app for the requored functions.
Bixby is smasung’s personal Assistant just like google’s AI and Apple’s Siri.The main moto behind samsung’s concept of bixby is exerything that you touch to do you should be able to give voice commands for the same.With Bixby you can also mix and match types of inputs.Bixby will use clues to come to conclusions what you want with it.foe Eg:-if you ask Bixby To call tony and you have more than one Tony on your contact lis Bicby will ask you which one,isnt that cool.Samsung is so confident with Bixby that it gave bixby its own seperate button to enabel bixby.
Every superhero needs sidekicks,and smartphones need smart accessories to make them so smart.Samsung with its S8 series produced its A game with a whole new bunch of accessories Namely:-
- SAMSUNG DEX STATION:-Just like microsoft surface doc Samsung produced its own doc that helps its users to convert their S8 and S8+ into a pc by connecting it to a moniter.
- SAMSUNG GEAR 360:-Samsung launched its new gear 360 camera which is much lighter and compact than its previous model and helps you take images and videos in 360 Degree angle
If you would put a smasung galaxy S7 Edge and the Galaxy Note7 in a blender and mix them up what would come out is the new Galaxy S8 and S8+ both these devices are premium and come with the latest and best hardware on the planet.Though it is priced a little high but Samsungs falgships are always worth it if they dont blow up.
