Galaxy Note 8 tipped to swipe the iPhone 7 Plus's top feature

Both the handsets boast a odd display aspect ratio of 18:9. Here's how to change your homescreen launcher on the Galaxy S8. The Galaxy S8 is fueled by a 3,000 mAh Battery.

In a response to the article, Samsung reportedly told the publication the phenomenon is "not a quality problem", and "can be adjusted with the phone itself". However, it looks like just ahead of the launch, some extra information pertaining to the much awaited Samsung flagships are out, and have been reported by Gadgets360. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are longer and narrower than their predecessor phones giving users more real estate to work upon.

Samsung Galaxy S8 comes with a 5.8-inch Quad HD (2960 x 1440 pixels) Infinity display which is curved on both sides while the Galaxy S8+ comes with a 6.2-inch Quad-HD display.

The long-awaited S8 is the South Korean tech giant's first new premium phone since the Note 7 debacle in October, which wiped out $5.48 billion of profit. But we can assume the price will be around 50K INR considering the price of Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7+. It will also be powered by Exynos 8895 processor, and not by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, as some previously believed. The two smartphones run on Android 7.0 Nougat-based TouchWiz UI.

Both the phones also have a separate dedicated button to trigger Bixby - Samsung's response to Google Assistant and Apple Siri.

For security, Samsung now offers Iris scanner and facial recognition in addition to several other standard features like a fingerprint scanner, pattern lock, and password.

Both the devices are IP68 rated, making them resistant to water and dust. Samsung Pay is also supported out-of-the-box. The rear camera is capable of recording 4K videos at 30 fps, 1080p HD videos at 30 fps or 60 fps and 720p HD video at 30 fps. At the same time, the camera app now houses a barrage of fancy new animations to add AR effects to photos.

Ten years later, the stakes are high for the debut of iPhone's latest model.

Already, Samsung has promised that the devices will be available in Nigeria from May 5, 2017.
