Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus prices leaked: Just too high?

Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus prices leaked: Just too high?

The long-awaited unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S8 will take place later this month so here's a few things that you need to know about Samsung's new flagship smartphone. iPhone, variously dubbed the iPhone 8 or the iPhone X, due out in the fall. Moreover, the Note device is expected to be the most-powerful device in the market when it hits stores in the latter half of this year. Blass is generally reliable when it comes to these leaks and since his images show the black front, colored rear combo, I'd bet that this is the default state of the handset. AKG is a trademark owned by Harman International, and Samsung made a decision to acquire Harman International a year ago for $8 billion. We now know what colours it will be available in and how much it will cost.

The Galaxy S8 will have a 5.8-inch touchscreen, while the S8+ will come with a 6.2-inch panel, both Super AMOLED and sporting an odd 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Thus, the Home button in the two devices will be pressure-sensitive.

The Galaxy S8 is rumored to feature a fast wireless charging technology.

This makes the Samsung Galaxy S8 a rival to that of the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, which boasts the Motion-Eye camera that delivers an impressive 960 fps frame rate. The iPhone 7s and 7s Plus will retain the current LCD displays in order to keep the price of the new phones down. According to the publication's sources, "Apple adopted a three-dimensional (D) glass material on the back case of the iPhone 8 (tentative name)". Both include 32 GB of memory. There are many good as well as bad reasons for it being in limelight. Another possibility is that Samsung will repeat what it did with the S7 and release new colours later in the phone's life cycle. Selling a premium-priced phone against Apple can be a hard proposition. And now of course they are working on new device very carefully.

Although the smartphones look identical, keep in mind that they vary in sizes as the Plus variant is expected to be significantly bigger than the smaller one. Samsung launched the Galaxy A7 2017 in India.
