On March 29th Samsung announced their next flagship smartphone devices officially named the Galaxy S8 & S8+.
I am impressed with the amount of innovation Samsung is driving on these devices. Great to see given the difficult year Samsung has had with their botched Note 7 launch and related battery issues.
Here are some of the highlights of the S8/S8+ devices
- New “infinity” OLED display that covers the entire front of the phone
- Better camera which shoots 4K video
- Bixby virtual assistant, which can answer basic questions and prioritize your information as it learns your routine/behaviours. Bixby can also identify objects and tell you what they are and where to buy them, which is a supper cool feature.
- Wireless charging and IP68 water resistance
- Bigger battery (3,000 amh, 3,5000 amh)
- 64GB internal memory
- New Dex platform that allows you to connect your device to a bigger monitor to create a Android desktop experience that runs off your S8/S8+
- Free Gear VR + controller with pre-order
What do you think and will you be getting the new S8 or S8+ from Samsung?
