Galaxy S8 enjoys higher than expected sales


"The Galaxy S8's DeX dock can turn the handset into a Android-based desktop".

Announced at the end of last month, the new Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are the latest iteration of Samsung's flagship smartphone.

The foldable feature, however, could appear on two separate devices mysteriously named Galaxy X and Galaxy X1, but at an unspecified time.

"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 only plausible explanation is that Samsung wants a longer evaluation period prior to production so it can avoid what happened to the Note 7 previous year.

Reports a year ago suggested Samsung was working on two separate bendable smartphones.

To recall, the Samsung Galaxy S8 features a 1.9GHz octa-core Samsung Exynos 8895 processor paired with 4GB of RAM.

With each new edition of its flagship line, Samsung is used to launch an ultra-resistant variant called Active.

In US, Samsung's own site is throwing mouth-watering discounts right now, until device remains on pre-order, till April 21.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has specifications that could possibly outsmart the LG G6 other than its battery.

It seems Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus units will be coming with a reward eCertificate of $100 from Samsung.

Should Samsung meet its 1 million target, it will be 2.5 times more than the 400,000 units seen for the Note7, whose preorder period was two days longer past year. The Galaxy S8 sports a 5.8-inch display, whereas the S8+ comes with a 6.2-inch display. Both models, available in five colours, are water, dust-resistant and support wireless charging.

But to make sure the Bixby English version works seamlessly, Samsung says the virtual assistant won't be available in the US market until May.

Although its predecessor, the Galaxy S7 was an wonderful device, the Galaxy S8 comes out on top when both of these are compared.

Let's have a look at Galaxy S8 pricing in the table below.
