Introducing the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ with the World’s First Infinity Display and 10nm Processor

Introducing the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ with the World’s First Infinity Display and 10nm Processor

Through out the years, we have seen Samsung come up with innovations that have been nothing but exemplary. Year after year, the South Korean tech giants made sure to bring something new to the table. The year 2016 however proved to be a huge challenge following the (unfortunate) Galaxy Note 7 fiasco due to which the company had to incur huge losses not just financially but also publicly as the company’s image was at stake. That being said, the latest entrant in the long running Galaxy S lineup of Samsung’s flagship devices, the Galaxy S8 is here to change the company’s faltering image. After months of speculations and a host of leaked images, the much awaited device has finally been launched that promises to right whatever the wrongs done by the Galaxy Note 7. Samsung in an event recently held in New York announced two variants of its flagship device the Galaxy S8 and its larger compatriot, the Galaxy S8+ Both the devices have been completely overhauled as far as the design is concerned with Samsung opting to remove its traditional home button  and replacing it with an onscreen haptic touch button. Besides the removal of the home button, the Galaxy S8 is the first Samsung device to come with a complete bezel less curved display. Samsung (as in previous years) has put significant emphasis on the display which is one area where the company truly excels in. Following the success of the brilliant AMOLED and Super AMOLED displays, the Galaxy S8 now comes with the all new Infinity Display. The display sets a new standard for uninterrupted, immersive experiences. It enables an expanded screen size without necessitating a larger phone. So while the view is grander, Galaxy S8 and S8+ feel small in your hand, making them easy to hold and use. Both the devices are available in five exciting colors Midnight Black, Orchid Gray, Coral Blue, Arctic Silver and Maple Gold and would start retailing at all major stores starting from April 21st for an approximate price of $750 for the S8 and $850 for the S8 Plus.

Samsung officially stops Note 7 production!

Samsung officially stops Note 7 production!

Samsung being in a pickle, is the understatement of the century at this point! After multiple incidents of the Galaxy Note 7 exploding in various parts of the world, the South Korean manufacturer tried to do right by its customers and re-called the devices. Sadly though, even the replacement devices were going boom as well. So Samsung had to make an extremely hard call and stop the production of the device altogether. The fault lied mainly with the device’s battery. According to sources, the battery manufacturing was outsourced, but the real reason for the device to catch fire is still unconfirmed. Samsung pulling the plug on the Note 7’s production has majorly dented their stock value, with a loss of around $ 17 Billion. A Samsung spokeswoman referred to an earlier statement from the company: “For the benefit of consumers’ safety, we stopped sales and exchanges of the Galaxy Note 7 and have consequently decided to stop production.” Samsung will need to pull up its socks and work around this issue, as quickly as they can, as for sure there will be ripple effects. Chances are that this incident will surely impact the sales of the next device Samsung will launch, the S8 seems to be the likeliest contender so far. So, for those who were lucky or unlucky to use the device, got to experience what in all fairness was a great smartphone overall. RIP Note 7!...
