The two new smartphones come with larger screens that fill most of the face of the device, with Samsung also removing the physical home button from the phone and replacing it with a pressure sensitive "invisible" home button embedded beneath the display. Samsung call this Infinity screen and it means that when you're watching content like a video will you have a larger presentation area on the phone.

This converted price of the new Galaxy S8 series is pretty close to the launch price of the Galaxy S7, S7 edge in India from previous year.

Mr Koh also apologised to customers at the conclusion of the investigation for failing to meet consumer expectations.

In the U.S., the phone will be available for pre-order from March 30, and it looks like the pricing is starting at $700 plus.

For cameras both phones get a main Dual Pixel 12MP OIS (F1.7), Front: 8MP AF (F1.7).

The world's biggest smartphone maker Samsung said the new phone will feature finger scanner, iris scanner, facial recognition technologies and voice-powered digital assistant, Bixby, to counter Siri and Google Assistant. The S8 did not charge as fast as the Note 7, minimising the fire risk, he said. Samsung says that software and processor efficiencies will let the new phones offer all-day battery life under normal use. You can use your Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ apps and services with the help of Bixby. The S8 has a 5.8-inch display, while the S8 Plus has a ginormous 6.2-inch display.

Samsung (NASDAQOTH:SSNLF) has long offered features on its flagship phones that rival what Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has yet to make available on an iPhone. It has a 4GB RAM and a 64GB internal storage which can be expandable upto 256 GB.

Battery: The S8 has the same size battery as its predecessor at 3000 mAh, but the S8+ is smaller than the S7 edge at 3,500 mAh (it previously was 3,600 mAh).

The Observer's Sage Lazzaro is reporting live from the Unpacked event. Samsung has maintained a great design standard even after removing the front button that made space for a bigger screen.

Other notable features include IP68 water and dust resistance, plus fast charging fast and wireless charging.

Earlier on we had rumors that the phablets had been pushed to April 28th for their availability in stores, looks like its all went wrong.
