  1. I’m really excited for the Galaxy S8 launch. I was going to buy Galaxy S7 but skipped it after reading about S8. I think my S6 is still good enough and I can wait till next year for new phone. I just hope Samsung doesn’t disappoint and include all the features mentioned here. Please keep me posted about all the new updates.

The S8 may also launch ahead of schedule and may ditch flat screens altogether, with comments by Samsung executives suggesting that all models will have curves, while sources claim the company has already started ordering curved panels in two sizes.

  2. Another year, another useless phone from samcrap. I don’t understand why people buy these ugly and useless phones when you can buy iPhone. Nothing can beat iPhones in terms of speed, looks and usability. I’ll spend $100 more on a phone which can work for at least 3 years then having to buy a new phone every year.

  3. The world nowadays is seeing a lot of innovation in the technological arena, with the smartphones recently launched like Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Apple iPhone 6S etc. These smartphones took the technological world to the next level.

With Galaxy S7 launched recently, a gap of about 10-15 months is expected between it and Galaxy S8. So, possibly its release date will be around February 2016.

    Price is an important factor in the success of any smartphone. If the smartphone is launched with an affordable price, its sales are expected to be more as it comes in the budget of most of the people.
    Samsung has always had a history of launching affordable smartphones. But Galaxy S series is the flagship series of the company. These devices come at a premium price,as they compete with the likes of iPhones. So, concluding on all these factors, Galaxy S8 is expected to cost around $850-$950.
