Samsung Galaxy S8 Goes on Sale in Global Markets Starting Today

Samsung’s latest flagship handsets, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, are officially going on sale in four major markets of the world: US, Canada, Puerto Rico, and Korea. Over the coming weeks, Samsung will be further releasing the phone in other major markets of the world.

The Galaxy S8 and its + sibling are already on pre-order in most of the other major markets of the world. Thanks to their bezel-less design, Infinity Display, and an impressive rear camera, there has been a strong consumer interest in the handsets.

This is evident from their strong pre-order numbers, with the handsets receiving over a million pre-order in Korea alone. In the United States also, the pre-order numbers of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ have far exceeded Samsung’s expectations.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ feature an IP68 certification that makes them water and dust-resistant, with their Infinity Display and bezel-less design making them look very attractive. The Galaxy S8 features a 5.8-inch QHD+ Infinity Display, while the Galaxy S8+ features a 6.2-inch QHD+ Infinity Display. Inside the hood, the handsets are powered by a 10nm Exynos 8895 or Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chipset, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, a microSD card slot, and an iris scanner. They also come with an 8MP f/1.7 shooter at the front and a 12MP f/1.7 Dual Pixel shooter at the rear. The smaller Galaxy S8 features a 3000mAh battery, while the larger S8+ features a 3500mAh battery.
