Description

Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy S8 on March 29, 2017. As the brand's new flagship, the smartphone will surely pack a variety of exciting features, including an iris scanner for user recognition, a smart AI assistant, and a flashy new design to top it all off. No less importantly, the upgraded hardware will make the device faster than its predecessor, with a fast and efficient Snapdragon 835 in charge. Numerous leaks suggest that the Galaxy S8 will stick to the metal-and-glass design principle of its predecessors, paired with IP-certified resistance against the elements.
