Samsung Galaxy S8 Review And Exciting Specs by Bigjagga(m): 7:32pm On Apr 23, 2017
With the exploding Note 7 battery fiasco, Samsung inadvertently did something that’s increasingly difficult these days: It made smartphones interesting for a difficult time like this.
As anticipated by Samsung lovers all over the world, the Samsung Galaxy S8 was released in March 2017, with the stakes high, Samsung has delivered a device that legitimately stands out from the rest. It is a rugged 4G LTE smartphone with a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display, 1440x2960 resolution and 570ppi index. From within, a 2.45 GHz Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor operates with 4GB of RAM and the Adreno 540 GPU. On board storage is 64GB with a microSD card slot for up to 256GB memory expansion. The device has a 12MP camera in the back along with a 4K video recorder. A secondary camera is available in front with 8MP resolution. Upon release, the phone runs on the latest Android 7 Nougat OS. There is a 3,000 mAh battery included on the device that comes with built-in wireless charging technology. Other features include a fingerprint sensor, NFC, Samsung Pay, and IP68 certification. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is available in Midnight Black, Coral Blue, Maple Gold, Arctic Silver, and Orchid Gray color options.
