Few days ahead of the official unveiling,of glaxy s8 & s8 plus.Here’s a little summary.
To watch live stream on PC or laptop you can tune in live at Samsung’s website. This video will also be broadcast live on YouTube, which you can stream through the YouTube app on any compatible device, including connected TVs.
There’s no more “edge”, both versions will have a dual-curved screen. The difference in size remains 0.4” between them, but the new models have bigger screens – 5.8” on the “small” Galaxy S8 and 6.2” on the bigger Glaxy S8+
Bixby AI(artificial intelligance) will play a big role in the new interface. Samsung has had S Voice for the longest time, but Bixby will bring more personality and features to the table.
One of the things Samsung will not change is the camera – all current rumors point to pretty much the same hardware. The 12MP module with a bright aperture, Dual Pixel AF and OIS was quite capable, but even if it receives software updates that improve image processing, it will still have to compete with dual camera phones (the majority of 2017 flagships seem to have a dual cam setup).
It seems that the selfie cam will be bumped to 8MP (from 5MP), we haven’t heard of any other major changes to it.
Capacity is mostly unchanged – we say “mostly” because the plus-sized model lost 100mAh (now at 3,500mAh) while the base model remains at 3,000mAh. We don’t have any solid information if the fast charging (both wired and wireless) has been updated.
The latest information on the matter points to €830 for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and €930 for the Galaxy S8+. Pre-orders will start in early April, brick and mortar stores will receive stock around April 21. Note that pre-orders should ship earlier than that.
