Samsung announced on March 29th, at a New York Conference, the newest addition to their smartphone lineup. From the information given of this device, Samsung will definitely redeem their name after last year’s Note 7 fiasco.
With a regular and Plus version, the Galaxy S8 has an infinity display, curved edges, and the home button of old has been replaced with touch sensitive keys on the display.
Not only does this device look beautiful, it is the only device on the market to sport what Samsung has dubbed as DEX, which is short for Desktop eXperience. This little feature will allow you to dock your phone into a cradle, which can connect to a full sized keyboard, mouse and monitor, turning your phone into a PC.
I currently have the S7 Edge, and can’t wait to upgrade. For those of you wanting to know when this device will be available, Samsung has stated that April 21st will be the release date to the public, but you can pre-order yours now through your cellphone carrier.
If that wasn’t enough, rumor has it in latter part of the 2nd Quarter of this year, Samsung will be releasing the Note 8. If it includes all these features, and batteries now provided from LG Batt (LG’s Battery division) then I would have to say that Samsung will definitely redeem themselves this year.
