Samsung's latest flagship devices, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ already went on sale in an initial four markets. Other countries are also said to follow the launch in the coming weeks.
Samsung already has started sales in the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and Korea. Samsung said through the official site that the launch will be expanded to other countries in the coming weeks ahead.
TechCrunch's Brian Heater has described the Samsung Galaxy S8 as yet further evidence that Samsung produces the best Android smartphones. Even though he believes that the software side of the experience doesn't match up to the hardware side in the Galaxy S8.
To recall, the 5.8-inch Samsung Galaxy S8 is priced at $725 while the larger, 6.2 inch Samsung Galaxy S8 + is having a price tag of $825. In both Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+, customers will get an infinity display, next-gen processor and solid camera experience that keep Samsung at the first position of the Android handset race.
That being said, neither Samsung Galaxy S8 nor Samsung Galaxy S8+ ships with Samsung's Bixby smart assistant. The much-anticipated service that Samsung put forward as one of the phone's key selling points, will come to the Samsung Galaxy S8 series via an update that is due out in the spring.
According to ZDNet, the company ha sold a record one million pre-orders of Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ in Korea alone. The Samsung was able to achieve this huge sale, even though there are rumors of supply chain issues in the country.
Moreover, analysts have speculated that the global sales of Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ will reach at least 45 million units. Analyst firms remain divided over whether Samsung Galaxy S8 sales will exceed last year's Galaxy S7 series that has reached an estimated 48 million units worldwide.
