Samsung reveals Galaxy S8, S8 Plus

Samsung Galaxy S8 DeX dock

Samsung Galaxy S8 seems to be the best thing for Samsung Electronics to keep it on track after the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 fiasco. From the traditional "Pin" and "Pattern" unlocking options, right down to the high-end fingerprint sensor to facial recognition, both of these phones represent what a secure and aesthetic wonder a flagship smartphone should appear as.

The Samsung Galaxy X will come in two variants, the X1 and X1+, which may be unveiled at the IFA event in Berlin, the supposed venue for the Note 8's launch until Samsung made a decision to release the foldable phone first.

It's been already six months since Samsung discontinued the Galaxy Note 7 after various explosions.

Although the initial date announced for shipping Samsung Galaxy S8 is April 21, but the Canadian buyers will be able to get it early. Samsung is hoping that the smartphone will help it regain the market share in lost late a year ago.

"The revolutionary design of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ begins from the inside out", Samsung said on its website.


Also casting a shadow over the S8's debut is the trial of Jay Y. Lee, the Samsung group's heir apparent and de facto chief, who was arrested on bribery and embezzlement charges stemming from a national influence-peddling scandal.

Samsung just launched its most innovative piece of technology and we just can't wait to buy it.

It's the first Samsung model to be powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip.

The big question is how much the Note 7 recalls matter to Samsung's customers, and whether the S8 is enough for Samsung to reclaim the mobile throne. It also has new Iris-scanning and facial-recognition features that, by first impressions, are said to be very fast and just works.

Another new trick: the new Samsung phones can essentially become a full-blown desktop computer via a separately sold docking station called the DeX (an idea introduced by Motorola in 2011).
