Samsung's Galaxy S8 hits stores, aims to move on from recall crisis

Customers Complain of Red Tint in Galaxy S8 Screen

Justin Denison, senior vice president of product strategy at Samsung, speaks about the new features on the Samsung Galaxy S8 during a launch event for the smartphone, March 29, 2017 in New York City. If you're living in one of the countries where Xiaomi is selling devices (or willing to courageous an import), you could also wait for the Mi 6 to be released - after all, it's only half the cost of the Galaxy S8, with similar specs.

Samsung Electronics Co.is estimated to make less than 100,000 won ($88.20) for each Galaxy S8 smartphones sold, industry watchers said Friday, hovering far below the market price of 935,000 won.

You can unlock the Galaxy S8/S8 Plus with a password, a PIN, a pattern, but also with your fingerprint, your face, or even your iris! "These devices will offer our consumers a gateway to a new mobile life where the power of innovation will carry them beyond barriers", said Asim Warsi, Senior Vice President, Mobile Business, Samsung India. Samsung will use the same technology in Galaxy Note 8 and rumors are suggesting that the upper and lower bezels could be smaller than S8 which could be a great feature. Reports from South Korea say the displays show a distinctive red dim that users can tweak in the Settings menu.

Furthermore, under-the-hood specs also prove that Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are more than just pretty faces.
