Samsung Galaxy S8 Gets A Hefty Price Tag In India

There is some difference in the dimensions, screen size and the battery capacity of the smartphones.

Samsung has confirmed that it's working on a new Galaxy Note handset that it will launch this year. This matches the 7 Plus' capabilities with its dual-camera system.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 variant in India will be powered by the Samsung Exynos 8895 SoC.

Though Apple tends to get more of the spotlight, Samsung has actually led the smartphone market lately. The battery in the S8 series is glued-in, which implies Samsung thought the battery issue with the Note 7 was a manufacturing quality issue and not a design one. Samsung Galaxy S8 price starts at Rs. 57,900 and will be available starting May 5.

The Galaxy J5 (2017) bearing model number SM-J530 has been spotted on GFXbench benchmarking site with a 4.8-inch display (1,280x720 screen resolution), a 12MP (4,128x3,096) selfie camera, an octa core Samsung Exynos 7870 processor clocking at 1.5GHz, a 16GB internal memory, a 2GB RAM, and an Android 7.0 Nougat operating system.

The YouTube channel JerryRigEverything has taken the time to test out the durability of Samsung's latest, by subjecting it to a variety of different types of abuse. In fact, I would argue that its only real competition comes from the Google Pixel and the iPhone 7, both of which were release long after the Galaxy S7.

Look for much more on the Galaxy Note 8 in the coming weeks and months. Among these three phones, I think it's impossible to name a clear victor.

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are nearly identical. I've snapped all sorts of images, from outdoor shots in great lighting, to indoor close-ups, to portraits, and everything in between.

Early reviews of Samsung's new Galaxy 8 smartphone indicate it could be a game changer as far as smartphones go and potentially the first smartphone to become a true enterprise tool as well. The Infinity Display design is definitely the best thing about Samsung's new flagship smartphones, but the camera truly is a close second.
