The plus sized variant would come out in Midnight Black, Coral Blue, and Maple Gold color variants, while the regular variant will not feature the coral blue color.

The India price tags evidently bear a significant premium over the USA pricing.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 doesn't start shipping in most countries until Friday but some people in South Korea have already managed to get their hands on it and have begun reporting some issues with the display. They will also be eligible for a Double Data offer on Jio network when recharging Rs.309.

The #GalaxyS8 and #GalaxyS8Plus come with high performance earphones, AKG by Harman, as an in-box accessory.

There are many categories that branch out for a consumer when they are looking to spend a small fortune on a flagship like the Galaxy S8 and durability is definitely one of them. Now, it is nearly certain that Samsung will not release them in the next few weeks as there are chances of them disappearing into the oblivion with the Galaxy S8 set to be launched on April 21. The new phone displays are bigger than the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge and they have curved screens that flow onto the sides. The regular one with 5.8-inch screen and the + version with a 6.2-inch display. The displays are certified by the UHD Alliance as Mobile HDR Premium. The Exynos 8895 SoC on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ is coupled with 4GB of RAM.

According to a new report, the well-known KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that the Galaxy Note 8 will be the first device from the Korean manufacturer to feature a dual-camera setup on the back. The camera lens is also made up of glass and the interesting thing to note here is that the LED flash is also tucked beneath this layer so you can forget about leaving a mark with keys, coins, and razor blades. Sensors on board include an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, barometer, gyroscope, heart rate sensor, magnetometer, and proximity sensor. They both support Samsung Pay, with NFC and MST connectivity.
