On to the bend test, the Galaxy S8 is very well built, showing a negligible amount of flex, to the point where the sticky adhesive that gives it that IP68 water-resistance would not even protrude, showing that it is a very well constructed phone.
The Galaxy J5 (2017) bearing model number SM-J530 has been spotted on GFXbench benchmarking site with a 4.8-inch display (1,280x720 screen resolution), a 12MP (4,128x3,096) selfie camera, an octa core Samsung Exynos 7870 processor clocking at 1.5GHz, a 16GB internal memory, a 2GB RAM, and an Android 7.0 Nougat operating system.
Analysts are of the view that Galaxy S8 could play a major role in the comeback of Samsung in the premium high-end smartphone market. Those who pre-book the device stand a chance to win the wireless charger.
With the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus making their way to buyers' hands this week to generally positive reviews, Samsung could be getting the home run it needs to extinguish any flames of mistrust left from the Galaxy Note 7 recall. The handsets will be officially released in India on May 5. This is unless Samsung has got something to say about it. This will feature curved dual-edge display, 18.5:9 aspect ratio and minimal bezels present on the bottom and top. Samsung Galaxy S8 comes with a 5.8-inch QHD+ (1440×2960 pixels) Super AMOLED display. The displays have also been UHD Alliance certified to ensure reliability. Both the smartphones bear the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.More news: Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+ now in India, pre-order on Flipkart
If Kuo is on the money, then, it could be that Sammy made the decision to remove the dual camera from the S8+ and save the technology for its next Note handset.
An image purporting to show a prototype for the Galaxy S8+ emerged this week, complete with a dual-camera setup on the rear. The two smartphones come with iris scanner, fingerprint scanner, and facial recognition.
The connectivity options include 4G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB Type-C, NFC and more. The phones also feature Samsung Pay.
