Just over a week after Samsung Electronics' announcement of its next flagship smartphone's official unveiling, the South Korean firm is now upping the excitement as it now revealed the release date of the much-awaited Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. And its fans wouldn't have to wait for that long.
As cited by Forbes, South Korea's English-language business news service The Investor reported that the company is slated to open the pre-orders for both Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus on April 10 — barely two weeks after their unveiling on March 29th. Meanwhile, both smartphones are scheduled to go on sale on April 21st.
Their predecessors Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge were released a bit earlier. The two previous flagships were released on March 11, 2016 — an indication that the forthcoming iterations' release date is a little delayed than expected. While these models are considered "late" in terms of their release date, Samsung's decision to retail them on April echoes its traditional release dates of Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 which were all retailed on April as well.
Samsung Galaxy S8 is tipped to feature some of the most game-changing features and specifications. These include the front and back glass panels that are conjoined together by a metal band, a near bezel-less display, a rounded display that is similar to LG G6, and a USB Type-C port. Also, its fingerprint scanner is expected to be placed at the its back.
Other features of Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus are Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, a 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch displays, Quad HD + Super AMOLED display, a 12MP Dual Pixel camera, 4GB of random access memory (RAM), 64GB of native storage plus microSD expandability, a wireless charging and an IP68 certification.
