Samsung’s new flagship duo – the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus have been unveiled. With numerous leaks and rumors in series, the Galaxy S8 became the most anticipated smartphone of 2017 in no time. Beforehand, some features were skeptical, but the official unboxing that happened yesterday cleared everything. Thus unveiling a truly astounding phone named the Galaxy S8. As claimed, Samsung ditched its traditional Home button. This not only reduced the needless screen size but also gave it an unending premium look. Moreover, the bezel-less display comes in 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch sizes for S8 & S8 Plus respectively. Samsung has named it as ‘Infinity Display’. When we talk of the build, it is similar to the rival HTC U Ultra, where we see a perfect blend of glass and metal. Well, not every mobile manufacturer can boast of it. So it becomes legit to comment that Samsung and HTC did a pretty good job.

This is how the Samsung Galaxy S8 & S8 Plus looks

The flagship duo will go on sale in the US, the date is scheduled to be April 21, 2017, for all the carriers. Meaning, you can grab the first stock from the respective carrier stores, starting from that date. Also, the sale for European variants will go live by 28th April 2017. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are available for pre-orders on the official manufacturer website as well as the respective carrier websites. It also lists some goodies that come along with it.

Update: Bixby will only support the US and Korean language at its initial launch on 21st April. Previously, we have heard of rumors saying that Bixby will come with a support of 8 different languages, but it is now cleared. However, it shouldn’t be a surprise as Samsung will need some time to develop the app, add support to different languages and add the third-party apps to support Bixby. Moreover, the Galaxy S8 is running Android 7.0 Nougat based on the Samsung Experience 8.1. The firmware build number is G955FXXU1AQC9 and the model number for the international variants is SM-G950F for Galaxy S8 and SM-G955F for Galaxy S8 Plus.
