Samsung Galaxy S8 pre-orders surpass S7's, exceed expectations

Samsung Galaxy S8 release was both exciting and terrifying Samsung says

We still do not know what kind of changes Samsung plans to make. According to the report, the South Korean tech giant is now working on the rugged variant of the Galaxy S8, which is codenamed "Cruiser" and has the model number SM-G892A.

Its two variants - the Galaxy 8 and S8+ - comes with massive 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch screen sizes.

Despite this shortcoming, the Galaxy S8 has still been a very popular smartphone and has already registered more than half a million pre-orders on its home turf.

It's the American carrier AT&T which has been releasing Active variants of Samsung's smartphones each and every year.

There's a lot riding on the Galaxy S8 for Samsung. The IP68 rating assures of water resistance upto 1.5m depth for 30 minutes.

One of the main reasons folks are satisfied with the 2,100mAh battery unit in the Galaxy S3 is because this is a removable battery which gives owners the opportunity to swap batteries when needed or even opt for larger battery capacities. Its last big flagship phone, the Galaxy Note 7, went down in flames. "Samsung #GalaxyS8 #GalaxyS8Plus, India launch on 19th April, 2017", said the Tweet by Samsung without revealing any details, least of it about the price in India. The company does the same with S8 smartphones as well. Both the Galaxy S8 and S8+ packs Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or the Samsung Exynos 8895. The final iteration of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ featured a fingerprint reader that is placed right beside the flagship smartphone's camera.

Those who have pre-ordered the Samsung Galaxy S8 ready for its worldwide launch on April 21st will be able to take advantage of Bixby's augmented reality camera feature - dubbed Bixby Vision.

Analysts are seeing bright lights on the new smartphone, may are expecting Samsung to record its best-ever quarterly profit between the months of April-June, buoyed by strong Samsung Galaxy S8 demands and a growing memory chip market.

Both of them runs on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat and the smaller sibling is powered by a 3000mAh battery, while the Plus model boasts 3000mAh battery with fast charging on wired and wireless.
