S8 Pre-orders Surpass Previous Models — Samsung
20 April 2017, 10:13 | Patty Hardy
Samsung is making a comeback with its new flagship Galaxy S8 and the slightly larger Galaxy S8 plus.
Just to keep you informed, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ were opened for pre-orders in South Korea on April 7, which is just a week ago. More details on the device are expected to follow later this year. It might also start taking preorders from other e-commerce sites from the same day itself.
The long-awaited S8 is the South Korean tech giant's first new premium phone since the Note 7 debacle in October, which wiped out $5.48 billion of profit.
For those, who don't know, Samsung Galaxy S8 comes with a 5.8-inch QHD+ (1440×2960 pixels) Super AMOLED display. Both the phones come with QHD+ resolution.

Paul George insists comments intended to motivate Pacers
He's upset that the Pacers have to fight their way back from a 2-0 deficit against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. A moment of silence was observed for Robert Godwin Sr., the 73-year-old tragically gunned down by the Facebook assailant.
The device is expected to feature a massive 6.4-inch Super AMOLED with a near bezel-less look, thanks to Samsung's new "Infinity Display" technology. "It took Toyota about four years for its brand to get back to where it was, and I think ours can do it faster", said Lee Young-hee, an executive vice president at Samsung's mobile business, told Reuters. Arriving with a Snapdragon 835 Qualcomm or Exynos 8995 Samsung chip, the gadget will have an improved performance and better efficiency. There's 64/128GB storage on board along with 256GB expandable microSD card slot.
Coming to ruggedness, the Galaxy S8 Active is expected to replace standard sleek and lovely design of its predecessors. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ have 8MP front-facing camera. The two run on Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box with TouchWiz UI on top. And another interesting thing which is to be seen is that if the active variant of the device will come with the separate Bixby button or not.
It has been suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active will be released sometime in June, the same schedule all previous Active models have launched.
A spokesperson for the company confirmed Koh's remarks but declined to provide exact numbers for the pre-orders for the new devices.
