Now, Samsung is stepping up their game with competitors on the smartphone market with their Galaxy S8 with the focal points of durability, design, and function.
She also stated that one of the reasons why people turned to the Galaxy S8 models is their wish to have a smartphone with a big screen.
The rumors say that the price of the new Galaxy S8 may be around Rs 50,000 and Rs 60,000 in India; however, there is no official comment on the price from Samsung India. Just weeks from the presentation of the Samsung Galaxy S8, it has already received a large number of reservations and seems to be causing very good impressions. Priced starting at $720 for the 5.8-inch S8 and $840 for the 6.2-inch S8 Plus (pictured above), the new devices are being positioned as premium phones created to compete with Apple's iPhone 8, which is expected to come out this fall. According to Lauren Guenveur, Kantar's global consumer insight director, the most popular Samsung phone in the U.S. as of February this year is the Galaxy S5.
The buzz around Samsung has already changed.
"The economically priced, high-performing Galaxy J series sustained Samsung's shipments and contributed significantly to the expansion of the brand's overall smartphone production volume", TrendForce reported.
The company has boosted the front camera with 8 megapixels lens, while the rear one stays at 12 megapixels.
Fast wireless charging: the Galaxy S8 takes fewer minutes via USB Type-C or a wireless dock to be charged than iPhone 7 Plus. More so, the Galaxy S8 is powered by Qualcomm's powerful Snapdragon 835 SoC in the United States, and Exynos 8895 SoC for worldwide countries. Both the smartphones come with 4GB RAM and 64 GB internal memory which can be expanded up to 256 GB via a microSD card.
Since February this year, Korean media channels have been reporting that Samsung may release a refurbished edition of Galaxy Note 7 this year.
The S8 will be the safest Galaxy smartphone to date due to safety measures implemented to avoid the battery failures that caused some Note 7s to spontaneously combust, he said. In terms of color options, the Galaxy S8 duo will be available in Midnight Black, Coral Blue, and Maple Gold colors.
