Samsung Galaxy S8 And S8 Plus Launch Event In India

Samsung's much-touted voice assistant Bixby is another major USP of the Galaxy S8-series.

Talking of the Galaxy S8, the smartphone is powered by a 1.9GHz octa-core Samsung Exynos 8895 processor paired with 4GB of RAM.

The Galaxy S8's display comes with subpixel arrangement where in red-green and blue-green combinations are used. Ahead of the launch, Flipkart had already put up banners on the site announcing that pre-orders for the two smartphones will begin on April 19 at 12 noon. The contrast due to Super Amoled display is always highest in Samsung's smartphones. The experts also note that the curved display screen might be easily damaged when replacing the front glass panel. The device is IP68 rated, meaning it is water and dust resistant. There are no physical navigation keys on the bottom this time, and the fingerprint sensor is moved to the back. First is the pressure sensitive invisible home button that is baked under the display.

Vettel's winning margin was 6.6 seconds but the error cost the Brit any chance to challenge him for the win. A lap later, Toro Rosso's Carlos Sainz crashed into Williams' Lance Stroll shortly after leaving the pits.

The rest of the specifications and the features of the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro iteration with the 128 GB storage space remain unchanged. Whereas, Apples' iPhone 7 Plus has a 5.5-inch display. The dual-cameras will include 3x optical zoom, 12MP wide-angle CIS supporting dual photodiode (2PD), 13MP telephoto CIS, dual 6P lenses and dual OIS.

Early complaints about the Galaxy S8 involves the Bixby button. However, most Bixby functionality won't be available at launch in the USA, which means the dedicated Bixby button will not be very useful at all, at least initially. According to the website, Bixby 'can talk, see, read, recommend the user on actions.

The discovery comes as the South Korean tech giant has been promoting the Galaxy S8 smartphones to put to rest the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 phablet, whose production was suspended past year due to some of the devices catching fire while charging around the globe.
