It hasn't been too long since Samsung took a nose dive in terms of reputation in the smartphone industry. The Galaxy Note 7 might be far from being a faded memory but the latest Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ might help the South Korean giant deal with the burns left behind after the entire Note 7 fiasco.
Samsung has been upgrading its design every year and this year is no different, in fact the new Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ seems to have reached the pinnacle smartphone evolution, especially in terms of design. At least, until next year.
The South Korean tech giant launched both its flagships in India yesterday and will make the devices available to public from May 5 onwards.
Samsung has lived up to the early concepts of the device. The front panel of the device is seamless with the home button integrated under the screen. Though the button won't be visible, it will react to the pressure. It seems Samsung borrowed a page from Apple's force-touch technology. The edge to edge display is first thing you'd notice in the phone.
Though Samsung has used huge 5.8 inch and 6.4 inch screens, the device's footprint is much smaller. The taller aspect ratio of the screen too, has added to a better gripping in the phone. Additionally, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ come with the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both sides.
Samsung has finally unveiled its own AI and the company seems very confident about it. So confident, that it placed a dedicated physical button on the phone to access the assistant.
Similar to most leading AIs in the market, Bixby will also behave contextually. The device will keep a track of your location and activity throughout the day to yield better results.
