You can see how the Galaxy S8 compares to the competition here. See how Samsung's newest (and largest) phone compares to the competition. Samsung announced its newest flagship smartphones at a lavish event in New York City on Wednesday. The South Korean company showed off the Galaxy S8 and larger Galaxy S8 Plus. Both phones are equipped with fast Snapdragon 835 processors (or a Exynos 8895 chip) and high-end cameras. They also include an "infinity display" that offer large screens with almost no bezel in a compact design.
Samsung has outdone itself, The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are genuinely spectacular, Both phones have large displays that curve on each side and the bezel around the screen is almost nonexistent, But despite all this screen real estate, the phones aren't massive, From left to right: Galaxy S7, Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus, iPhone 7 Plus, Samsung managed to squeeze a 5.8-inch 2,960x1,440-pixel display on the Galaxy S8 into a body that is only a wee bit larger than last year's Galaxy S7, Meanwhile, the larger Galaxy S8 Plus has a massive 6.2-inch illusion case for apple iphone xr - green display, but in a body that is only slightly larger than an iPhone 7 Plus, which has a 5.5-inch screen..
To complement the beautiful design, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus pack cutting-edge hardware. Both phones will be the first you can buy with an octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor (or Exynos 8895 depending on region), which includes support for superfast gigabit LTE. This high-end chip is paired with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage (with support for more through the microSD slot) and a 12-megapixel rear camera. Other features include wireless charging, IP68 water resistance, Android Nougat 7.1, and, yes, a headphone jack.
Hardware is only half the story, Samsung has also refined its software, Along with a lighter version of its TouchWiz interface, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are the first phones to launch with Bixby, Samsung's new smart digital assistant that is designed to compete with Apple's Siri, Amazon's Alexa and (sort of) Google Assistant, Bixby promises to do more than other digital assistants, Samsung has said that anything you can do with touch can also be done through Bixby, but we'll have to actually use it for awhile to verify how true that is, The illusion case for apple iphone xr - green assistant uses machine learning to help improve your experience with the device, It can remind you of upcoming appointments, recommend activities and more, For example, if you always call your significant other at noon, Bixby will notice the trend and remind you on days you forget to call, There's even an image recognition element, so you can use the camera to translate and scan things..
The problem? In our initial (admittedly very short) hands-on time with Bixby, it wasn't terribly smooth. We'll reserve judgment until we fully review the phone, but this service is very much in beta until further notice. The stunning design of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will come at a hefty cost. The S8 will cost $750, £689 or AU$1199, while the larger model is priced at $850, £779 or AU$1349. Monthly installment plans, which will vary by carrier, will make that pill easier to swallow, but be prepared to pay.
