Samsung Galaxy S8 pre-orders eclipse S7


The Galaxy S8 and S8+ pack top-notch hardware in the form of Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, Adreno 540 GPU, and 4GB of RAM.

With the Note 7-debacle on its back, Samsung chose to not only unleash a new design and AI called Bixby with Galaxy S8 - and it bigger sibling, Galaxy S8 Plus - but has kept the pricing reasonable too.

"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.

Other features of Bixby like Vision, Home and Reminder will be available at the global launch of Galaxy S8 on April 21, Samsung said.

We'll have to wait and watch how Samsung decides to price its flagship smartphones in India. The Galaxy S8 has a sleek design and going for an active variant is definitely going to make it look more rugged than it looks right now.
