Unique Features of Samsung S8

So, as Galaxy S8 is launched and pre orders are on fire. Here we have amazing myths and features of Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.

  • Flexible Screen (Myth)

It was loudly rumored feature for S6 but due to some problem in testing, and after S8 launch we are quite sure that flexible display is just a rumour. By looking at their past track records, we are super optimistic that company will bring it in Galaxy S8 for sure. You might see three models like S8, S8 Edge, and S8 Flexi. Price for Flexi would be a bit higher than first two, but worth every single penny you spend on that.

  • Clear Force Touch

This will be a feature that Samsung will be seeking to introduce to counter Apple’s 3D touch which gained much popularity when it was released. The Clear Force Touch feature by Samsung will see the phone detect the pressure of the finger being applied on the display and presents different options.

  • Android N Operating System

Galaxy S8 comes with Android v7.0 Naught OS with TouchWiz and framework over it. The main problem with Samsung smartphone is they don’t get updates frequently. This year we are hoping some good and quick updates for Galaxy S8 smartphones.

  • USB Type-C Port

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphone comes with Type-C usb at the bottom which is really great. Now can do all activities with just a one kind of USB for smartphones.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 Price List

Upon its release, the Galaxy S8 Edge is expected to retail at $750 USD. This will be the standard price for the device. However the S8+ variant is 100 bucks costlier that thi. There will be a slight upward deviation when using other international currencies. Here we have compiled a country wise price list for Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+:

Country Galaxy S8 Price Galaxy S8+ Price
Galaxy S8 Price in USA $750 USD $850
Price in Canada 1185 CAD 1315 CAD
Price in UK 845 Euro 938 Euro

Prince in Australia 1170 AUD 1299 AUD
Price in Indonasia 11997155 Rupiah  13331655 Rupiah

There will be a small difference in price for each of the models of S8 depending upon carriers and offers. But if you have enough money to spend then go for GS8+ with 256 GB and get all the features.

Galaxy S8 Price won’t be that much high and you will get it for low if you Pre-Order that. I will let you know how to do that to reduce its price.

      1. If they go with the 6400 MaH battery, and if I add a 128 GB internal memory, then yes, along with 6 GB of ram and it will be the baddest phone on the market. Put 30 MP primary camera with 12 MP secondary, plus 4k display, and it will be a monster. I wonder if they have 32 bit sound, or just 24. My only 2 requests then would be to add a sunfire red to the color and then go 5G instead of just 4G LTE and no other smartphone could touch it!

  1. I believe that Samsung could truly own the market if they will bring back the exchangeable battery, as this is a feature many will not do without. If they don’t bring this back, LG could surpass them.

    1. Yes! That would seal the deal; and keep the micro SD. How can we get Sams ung to do this? If th ey would listen to us the customers they could be the undisputable smartphone leader! Who within Samsung can we talk to and get this done ?

  2. Sound good about new Samsung Galaxy S8 edge or Flexi by 2017. I am thinking about to buy new phone Samsung Galaxy S7 edge or Note 5. I haven’t decide it yet. Help me what the best I should buy the phone?

    1. S7 edge or S7 not the note 5. I have interacted with both and I think the s7 series is better but that’s just me 🙂

      1. ive tried s7 and note 5. stayed w note 5 only for the s pen. put spen in s7, and samsung will blow others away. just right form AND spen? what more could you want.

    2. When the s8 comes out, Apple is going to be left in the dust. Apple should just go back to making just computers.

    3. You can’t get a Note 5 anymore at least not through and Carrier, you can get one on Ebay or Swappa but they are a little high for a used phone. The 7 Edge is a awesome phone so I’d stick with that, it is also waterproof, if will survive a drop in the water and shine the Note 7 mishap my money is going to be on this S8 or I’m sticking it out for the Note 8 expected later in the year or I’ll work something out and get both. I miss the note 7 terribly!

  3. no they wont, Samsung doesn’t need to have a exchangeable battery because they already have a good battery, but lg needs that because their battery is no that good so lg would not surpass them, also people are more used to samsung.

  4. Samsung makes a beautiful curved screen tv, would like to see a phone besides lg make one. also would be nice to have stereo speakers like my old omni did. Got to have a replaceable battery. Water resistant of course.

  5. I saw the feature of galaxy note 6 now i am confused which one is better so tell me shich one should i buy

  6. very nice s8…………………………………..
    and personality mobile

    and beautiful and resonable price ……….

  7. Here’s the thing about the current S7 battery, it’s a bummer that you will loose your battery before you can knock out a 3 hour movie when enjoying it on a Gear VR unit (awesome by the way, the gear vr that is not the battery). With that being said, if they give the S8 a 6200 mAh battery that is no longer going to be an issue. I am on that band wagon as soon as it is released 🙂


  9. Im excited as to what this means for portable Vr. The S7 is 50% more powerful than the S6 so imagine double the power of the S6

    1. how can you know that s8 is best of all smart phones when we haven’t touched the s8 phone? the cost of the s8 phone is 900 to 1,000 DOLLARS? and with one little accident or left it somewhere it could be history. Get real with the prices.

  10. Iris Scanner, USB-C, fast charging, more RAM – it looks similar to Lumia 950 but without a proper camera app 🙂

  11. This is really exciting. The s8 is being designed to support the upcoming GearVr V2 which will support positional tracking (lean in, lean out, side to side) and hand motion controllers for wielding a sword or playing table tennis. 😀

  12. With the galaxy s6 I (surprisingly) never heard of people having problems with their battery needing to replace it….. 6200mah is huge!. S6 is 2500mah and that lasts me all day or about and about 3 hours GearVr gameplay.

  13. Honestly, both the S8 Edge and the Note 7 Edge will be quite incredible, however, you would need to decide between, a big phone or a small phone. I believe the Note 7 Edge will feature something like a 5.7″ inch display. And the S8 Edge will have a 5.3″ inch display.

  14. We can’t say anything or predict any about the Samsung Galaxy S8 as now there is only discussion related to the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 price in Pakistan and iphone 7 price in pakistan<

  15. I am not sure if the replacable battery would be a must, but it would be a nice feature for those who have a 2 year contract and have a slower battery down the road.

  16. I am waiting for both mobiles. But Samsung seems to be an excellent choice regarding performance, battery backup and camera. Thanks for sharing this site.

  17. I’m actually really bummed about the display…True 4k is nice and all, but several sites were touting an 8k display. I’m pretty sure that’s the reason for what’s being hailed as a “drastic price drop,” too. It’ll only have half the RES.

    That being said, I’m really intrigued by that Galaxy X Foldable phone. It might really be worth checking out, if they can really pull it off.

  18. After the Note 7 phones have exploded, people are little hesistant to go with Samsung and with increasing prices it will make more and more harder for them to attract new buyers.

  19. I hope samsung release on January or before, I have note 7 on the way to return and wait ofr s8, if samsung realease soon, or i buy other brand, first on the list s8

  20. why is everyone saying note 7edge there is no such thing as that phone.. I need a phone now but i want a s8 edge it looks great but I am undecided. what you think.. i was told by my carrier to hold off but I don’t think I will be able to

  21. What about those who had to return the NOTE 7? Samsung needs to waive an upgrade fee to the S8, S8 Edge or Flexi when released since we wanted the Note 7 and couldn’t keep them. Especially those people like me that traded in S7 edge for the Note 7 and went back to the S7 edge. I lost on taxes and trade in of the phones, only to go back to the S7 edge. However, I am still loyal to Samsung and it should account for something. I wanted the newest Samsung phone out and now have to keep the S7 Edge for 2 years before upgrading without a fee. Samsung needs to make an offer to the NOTE 7 customers to be able to upgrade/exchange for the difference to the new S8 series when available with no contract or upgrade penalities.

  22. The note 7 is no longer an option didn’t they stop it because of the battery fires? I have had and still have the note 3 and 4 did not get the 5 because of no access to the battery and memory card ,did not get the note 7 because of battery fire so I’m waiting to see the s 8 even with it having a smaller screen I’m considering it .

  23. I like very much the mobile from samsung I had almost all but now I want to get or the samsung galaxy S8 or the samsung note 8 can you tell me when can I get one of them?thank you very much and could you tell me the size and the price ?

  24. I think in this samsung S8 version mobile Camera pixel should be increased above the 20 mp
    otherwise another brand will go-ahead!!

  25. Cell phone prices are getting out of hand. I`m sure they could sell it for a bit less then 800.00 got the S8 and 900.00 for the S8 Edge.

  26. Brand new Original Samsung Galaxy s8 and s8+ New Edition RED Apple iphone 7 and 7 128GB plus cost 550usd with 1year warranty.

    Serious buyer should contact us.
