Samsung is all prepped up for the Galaxy S8 launch. After the long wait and the series of controversies, the tech giant from South Korea is back to redeem its name. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is the company's first flagship phone after the recalled Galaxy Note 7 and the arrest of its head Lee Jae-yong. The said flagship device is expected to finally be unwrapped specifically on March 29 at 11 am ET.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to come with a major revamp especially in the design department. As per the recent rumors and leaks, the phone will sport super slim bezels and a tall 18:5:9 display. Ars Technica said that with the Galaxy S8 being Samsung's first major phone after the recalled Note 7, the company is also expected to reassure its consumers that the new smartphone has gone through a series of battery tests.
Nevertheless, the remainder of the specs, safety and features will be given light to on the said event. There will also be clarification as to all the differences there is between the two Galaxy S8 variants. What is known so far is that the lower S8 model will be smaller in size. Nonetheless, both phones are expected to sport major changes including the ditched home button and the uncanny positioning of the fingerprint sensor. Apparently, Samsung is putting the fingerprint scanner at the Galaxy S8's rear now that there is no longer a home button.
As a whole, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be the company's most improved smartphone yet. It removed the iconic looks of the Galaxy S series and it added the Bixby assistant to complete the package as well.
