Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus Hands-On


Samsung’s flagships for 2017 are here, and at an event in NYC, the company unveiled the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus. Both are packed with new features and are their largest flagships yet. Coming in at 5.9-inches and 6.2-inches tall respectively.

The biggest trick is that they don’t feel this big thanks to the Infinity displays—which means they have no bezels and deliver a super sharp image. The S8 has a 5.8-inch, and the S8 Plus gets a 6.2-inch display both featuring a 2960 X 1440 resolution. Even cooler, the home button is no more, as it is hidden under the display.

The front packs an 8-megapixel lens that has smart autofocus, while the back gets an impressive 12-megapixel lens. The S8 has a 3,000mAh battery, and the S8 Plus gets a slightly larger 3,500mAh battery, both opt for a USB-C Port, and there is headphone jack onboard.

It is powered by a 2.35 GHZ and 1.9GHz Eight Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Processor with 4GBs of RAM. Samsung has a custom user interface running on top of Android 7.0 Nougat that includes it’s new Bixby personal assistant. Both devices have 64GB of internal storage and a micro-SD card slot for expansion.

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will land on April 21st and yes they are coming to T-Mobile, Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint in the US.
