Samsung has finally unveiled its new flagship phone players following the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Both were shown off to people present over in New York, a new era that can hopefully erase the forgettable memory of the battery exploding Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

The exploding phablet is still fresh in the minds of consumers, one reason why the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are under close scrutiny. Notable on the new flagship are the refined designs which have somehow leveled the negativity. It sports an edgier mold plus a number of new technology enhancements that include a much-hyped AI assistant and a smartphone desktop integration, Android Authority reported.

Samsung Galaxy S8 specs. The Samsung Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus tote practically similar features except for the screen size and the non-removable battery. Among the common features include the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core SoC, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal storage (expandable up to 2 TB), a 12 MP main camera, 8 MP front-facing camera, fingerprint sensor, and wireless charging.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 will sport a 5.8-inch display while the S8 Plus come with a bigger one with the 6.2-inch screen. The screen is one of the standout features for the new devices, both sporting curved ‘Edge’ panels which Samsung terms as ‘Infinity Displays’ according to Forbes.

Samsung Galaxy S8, S8 Plus Pricing. With the official specs of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus now out in the open, the next thing most will want to know is the price. When purchased off-contract, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will reportedly cost $750 while the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is $850 a pop. The prices will vary depending on the retailers where a couple of bucks could be shaved off.

Comparing it to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, the price is not far off. Hence, it could be an interesting battle between the rival companies with Samsung once again filling up their devices with tons of features. All that should be known by April 21 (U.S.) and/or 28 (most parts of Europe) once shipments commence.
