Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Design Leaked in New S8 Plus Prototype

Kuo has a pretty decent track record when it comes to predictions about Apple products, which are often correct so we have to take his word on the Galaxy Note 8. The group, which seeks to reduce electronic waste by teaching people to fix their own devices, said the battery voltage, capacity and design of the Galaxy S8+ are "virtually identical" to the Note 7 batteries. In the USA, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is priced as low as $720 (roughly Rs. 46,700) and the Galaxy S8+ at $840 (roughly Rs. 54,500). Those who pre-book the device stand a chance to win the wireless charger.

As reported by ZDNet, after "Galaxy S8 red screen" became one of the highest searched terms in South Korea, a Samsung spokesperson told local media that the red tint isn't a quality issue, but can be fixed by adjusting the system settings.

Samsung Pay - a payment platform - now works with Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Axis Bank, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, SBI Cards, Citibank and Standard Chartered Bank in India.

Galaxy S8 builds on the Samsung's heritage of creating stunning designs and functional devices.

Both the Galaxy J5 (2017) and Galaxy J7 (2017) have been certified by Wi-Fi Alliance, giving a hint that they could be released soon.

Now, analysts say Samsung needs a flawless launch for the S8.

It has some uncommon dimensions, though: it has an 18.5:9 aspect ratio, which means it's taller than usual in the hand, but that helps keep the Galaxy S8 from feeling massive. The displays have also been UHD Alliance certified to ensure reliability. The phone also includes a new innovative design with a larger, curved screen and a slim, light package. It gets Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and back for durability and oozes a premium finish. The two smartphones come with iris scanner, fingerprint scanner, and facial recognition.

The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus come with 12MP Dual Pixel rear snappers. On the front, the smartphones bear 8-megapixel front cameras with autofocus, and also bear an f/1.7 aperture.
