Everything You Need To Know About The All New Samsung S8

You will soon be able to buy the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.

Samsung on Wednesday finally showed off its new flagship smartphones. The Galaxy S8 and larger Galaxy S8 Plus pack a lot of punch. Both phones are equipped with speedy Snapdragon 835 processor (or Exynos 8895 chip) and high-end cameras, but the biggest draw will be the new design.

The phones feature a curved display and nearly edge-to-edge screen with almost no bezel. Samsung somehow managed to squeeze a 5.8-inch (S8) and 6.2-inch (S8 Plus) display into phones that aren’t much bigger than last year’s models.

The phone features its own digital assistant, Bixby, Android 7.0 Nougat and is souped up to handle ultra-fast, 1Gb data speeds.

Its specs are also on par with — if not better than — a handful of the most popular flagships today, including Android heavyweights the Google Pixel and the LG G6, Apple’s massively popular iPhone 7 and the sleeper hit OnePlus 3T.

In terms of hardware, the Galaxy S8 has the most recent Snapdragon 835 chipset, a water-resistant construction that’s rated IP68 and a super sharp 2,960×1,440-pixel resolution.

Are you excited? Here’s everything you need to know about getting your hands on one of Samsung’s new phones.

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will be sold in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Singapore and South Korea.
