The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 with Exynos processor in global editions. But it is pursuing a different path in search of a great camera phone. There's also fast charging, which charges the S8 faster than normal.
The Samsung Galaxy S8, right, and S8 Plus models have screens that curve around the edges and sport a voice assistant meant to rival Siri and Google Assistant. The phone has 64GB internal storage which can be expanded up to 256GB.
On the other hand, the USA variant of the Galaxy S8 comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, while the worldwide variants will house the Exynos 8895 SoC.
The front camera is getting a boost to 8 megapixels, from 5 megapixels, while the rear one stays at 12 megapixels. Network features include 4G and VoLTE support, Bluetooth v5.0, WiFi, USB-C, and Global Positioning System.
With a starting price of $720 for the Galaxy S8 and $840 for the Galaxy S8 Plus, Samsung's new flagship phones certainly fall within the "premium" device category, a market space that's been dominated by Apple. With the Galaxy S8 set to become available soon, users of the predecessor Galaxy S7 must be wondering whether it is worth upgrading to the next-gen variant. The price will vary as per the carrier.

Hall also predicted the next iPhone will see strong sales "driven by a strong feature upgrade and robust replacement demand". Network support includes 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth v4.2, Global Positioning System and USB Type C. The phone has been launched with a price tag of '24,999 and comes in gold colour. Preorders open on March 30 and the device hits the shelves on April 21. To serve users better, the Dual 5 comes with a Care App that promises 24 hour service and has a 1 year replacement warranty.
