After teasing it for a couple of months Samsung has finally Announced their new smartphone after the tragedy of their previous launch of The Note 7 ...

In this Article, I'm going to talk about the New Features of this new smartphone and some special features that might interest you!

// Stick around till the end because I'll be comparing the features of The Galaxy s8 with The iPhone 7  //

1) Galaxy s8 Display & Design:

First of All, Let us talk about the Design of the New Galaxy s8. As I mentioned before, Samsung Launched their new flagship phone with a touch of New Design! Samsung decided to loose all the bezels of the phone and increase the Display because bezels are so last year!

The Samsung Galaxy s8 is rocking a 5.8inch 2960 x 1440  OLED display and the s8+  is rocking a  6.2 inch OLED Display with the same resolution as the s8. That means a really sharp display. Both the Samsung s8 and s8+ has a curved display at the side which they are now calling the Infinity Display.

The Aspect ratio is 18:9 

 Oh yes, I almost forgot!

Samsung also decided to lose the home button as they have increased the Display size. Don't worry, The home button is embedded inside the screen now.

2) Security:

 As the Home button is gone, the fingerprint scanner has been moved to the back beside the camera! It looks easy to access but for the s8+ users, it might be a little tough to get your finger there while holding your phone straight. And it is possible that you'll get your fingerprint on the camera


If you don't wish to unlock your phone using fingers can, you can try two new features which are the iris and the face Scanning.

The incredible thing is that the  Face scanning feature is really fast. For example, if you look at your front camera and with a blink of an eye your phone unlocks itself!

2) Hardware:

The Samsung Galaxy 8 and 8+ are running on Android 7.0 Nougat with 4GB Ram and 64GB of space with a memory slot expandable up to 256GB
The Navigation bar at the bottom is customizable and got a fresh new look to it.
 The galaxy s8 has 3000MAh battery power and the s8 + has 500more ...

3) Bixby:

Galaxy S8 Review : Bixby
Meet Bixby!

Samsung's New Personal Assistant which they gave a cool name, unlike Google's Assistant! It was high time Samsung got their own personal assistant because it kinda became mandatory to have one in order to push a phone to the top of the market!
They introduced Bixby with this Moto "whatever you can do with touch, you can do with voice." 

You can launch Bixby by a trigger word or By pressing the trigger button located at the left of the phone. Or pressing it will launch the Bixby Home screen with your agenda showing latest events, reminders and so on.

To have a chat with Bixby simply just hold the action/trigger button. Bixby can do a lot of things like adjusting brightness, taking selfies and even scan a photo to find information about it!

4) Camera:

There's actually nothing special about the s8's camera. The rear camera is 12mp and the front camera is 8mp just like the s7. If you wish to see the camera's power here's a photo captured by the s8 by GSMARENA.


beside the Size and Battery, there aren't that much difference between the Galaxy s8 and s8+


There are some new Accessories That came with this new phone, and I'm going to write about it later on ...
