Trending: Samsung Galaxy J8 Plus Leaked in GeekBench Report

After the S8 was announced a year ago, we found deals on the unlocked 32GB Galaxy S7 for as low as $380 (currentlly it's selling for $600). If you buy something featured, we may earn an affiliate commission which helps support our work. Released previous year, the smartphone was previously known as the A5, but the company has changed its name so that users associate it with the flagship models.

Head over to the full teardowns for the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus if you want all the details on what's inside these phones and just how hard it's going to be for you to open them up and fix them.

Samsung made some big claims about the Galaxy S9's durability when it announced the phone, asserting that it had used a stronger aluminum material to make it more scratch and impact resistant. Buyers looking to purchase Samsung's new flagship should rest assured that the phone won't be that easy to destroy. Similarly, on the multi-core front, the SM-J805G model scores 3,708, while the SM-J800FN scores 3,643.

South Korean phone maker Samsung says the smartphone ecosystem has already been transformed by "smart IoT-based devices", driven by artificial intelligence (AI) and the cloud platform, in line with Industrial Revolution 4.0. India especially is an important market for the company.

It is actually not just Samsung but the whole business smartphone is expected to decline in the current year and all the best players are perhaps going to be affected.

In such a slow market, LG Electronics which launched an upgraded version of V30 smartphones, dubbed "V30S ThinQ" on Friday, is more focused on providing better after sales services. Samsung needs to price its Galaxy J8 duo strategically.
