They are apparently the first phones to come with the 1 GB LTE support, which is made possible through their processor. We already know that the processor will be market specific, being either a Snapdragon’s or the Exynos’s.
If you think that the 4 GB RAM / 64 GB internal storage is inadequate, you will be surprised to know that there is also a 6 GB RAM / 128 GB storage, however that will be available for the China and Korea only, for now.
Two more interesting things are the fingerprint sensor and the Bixby button. Yes, the rumors were true! The fingerprint sensor is moved to the back of the phone, which is hugely new to the company. Thus you really have a place now to put your prints, rather than the camera’s lens. In further, the addition of the Bixby button, have lead way to a new age Virtual Assistant for a smartphone, which we will discuss in detail, in the oncoming days.
Well, it seems that Samsung had made it so effortless, but they have done a lot of hard work and planning, behind the scenes. Hence definitely, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ will surely rock in upcoming days and the company will move one step further, in its worldwide ventures with this amazing duo.
