Samsung Unveils the new Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus

Hello friends! Today I’ll be sharing with you’ll the news which is scattering rapidly in the IT sector and especially in the mobile phone industry. One of the biggest company of electronics and smartphones, Samsung has launched their flagship phone the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. The galaxy series is already quite famous among the user using it and Samsung has now developed it to a greater level.

The usage of mobile phones and the competition between companies to be the best is increasing day by day. Recently after the launch of Nokia’s smartphone series, Samsung is here with two smartphones with stunning designs and with new features. Talking about the device, I’ll be discussing first about the company Samsung, then moving ahead with its famous Galaxy series and then will discuss the technical features, specifications, expected release date and approx. cost for the device i.e. Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.




Mobile devices have become one of the largest necessity in today’s times. With keeping contacts and notes to performing complex accounting operations and business tasks, smartphones and mobile devices are used for multiple things. We have made ourselves comfortable using multi-purposes devices. From traditional mobile handsets (which were usually used to make calls and send and receive messages) to multi-purpose handheld devices, smartphones are changing the way we interact with the world. With such changes taking place in the industry, Samsung has come up with their new Galaxy series the S8 and S8 Plus.

Talking about the company, Samsung is one of the largest electronics company and now also one of the largest smartphone maker organization. The Samsung Group is headquartered in Samsung town, Seoul in South Korea. It comprises numerous affiliated businesses, most of them united under the Samsung brand, and is the largest South Korean brand of business. In first quarter of 2012, Samsung Electronics became the world’s largest mobile phone maker by unit sales, overtaking Nokia, which had been the market leader since 1998.

Won’t discuss much about the company, as we all know about Samsung. Moving ahead with their Galaxy series; Samsung Galaxy is a series of mobile computing devices designed, manufactured and marketed by Samsung Electronics. The product line includes the Galaxy S series of high-end smartphones, the Galaxy Tab series of tablets, the Galaxy Note series of tablets and phablets with the added functionality of a stylus, and the first version of the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, with later versions dropping the Galaxy branding.

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus

Samsung Galaxy devices have traditionally used the Android operating system produced by Google, usually with a custom user interface called TouchWiz. Also the recent devices manufactured by Samsung, use Android as the operating system.

So now talking about their newly designed and manufactured devices, Samsung launched the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus on Wednesday, March 29. These devices are expected to be releases in April.

The Galaxy Note has historically been Samsung’s biggest and most expensive smartphones, which typically justifies the extra price tag and stands out from the Galaxy S line in two main ways: the biggest and best screens, and Samsung’s S Pen stylus. But the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus have essentially eliminated the “larger screen” incentive of the Note. The entire focus on the new models is the massive “infinity display” screens that cover what feels like the entire front of the phone. The smaller S8 already ties last year’s Note with a 5.7-inch screen, and the S8 Plus — at 6.2-inches.
