Report: Samsung Galaxy S8 pre-orders to begin April 10th
The latest rumored information has the Samsung Galaxy S8 (and presumably the Galaxy S8+) being unveiled on March 29th in New York City, and launched on April 21st. That straight line from unveiling to launch is missing one key date. According to word out of South Korea, pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S8 will begin on April 10th. Samsung has delayed the introduction of its flagship phone this year. Various rumors indicate that the delay was forced on Samsung by the delivery schedule for the Snapdragon 835 chipset. Another reports have suggested that Samsung is taking things slow in order to prevent a repeat of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 fiasco.

The latest rumored specs for the Galaxy S8 indicate that it is equipped with a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED screen, carrying a resolution of 1440 x 2960. In the U.S., the phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 835 featuring an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 540 GPU. 4GB of RAM is said to be inside along with 64GB of native storage. A 12MP camera will adorn the back of the unit with an 8MP front-facing snapper for selfies and video chats. A 3000mAh battery is expected to keep the lights on.

The Samsung Galaxy S8+ will have a larger 6.2-inch screen and a larger 3500mAh battery to light up the larger screen. Otherwise, the specs on the two models are the same. That includes the expected IP68 certification rating, fingerprint and iris scanners, Type-C USB port and a 3.5mm earphone jack.

Yep. Taking low light shots with the S7 has been a joy.

If you had some knowledge about cameras you would know that mp aren't everything and the 12mp on the galaxy s8 will most probably be the best one on any mobile

Although I hate the S8, you should realize this: More MegaPixels = / = Better image quality It's all about sensor size and image processing It's all about that sensor size, and i will admit Samsung has some of the best mobile phone cameras on the market.

I don't hate the edges, but i wish there was a flat version, and not water down version like they did with s7. :(

Give the edges a chance. I hesitated with the s6 Edge, but I was happy. Then switched to the Note 7 and the Edges were more practical and less out there. Then I had switched to the s7Edge and am waiting to go back to the better Edge design carried over. Still not sure if I want S8/S8+ or N8

Normally I'd be excited forand buy the S8 being a big fan of the S6 and S7 Edge....but having paid $900 directly to Samsung for an unlocked S7 Edge (SM-935U) that still doesn't have the Nougat update with zero response as to when we're to receive nor why we're last in line.... I'm looking at other phones. I was a big Samsung fan.....but I'll wait to see what the Pixel 2 has to offer.

Well if what the rumours are suggesting is true I won't bother with this at all but the XZ Premium is catching my interest daily especially if the pricing is right, from what I see on clove's site it is .

I think YDS is secretly a Samsung lover. Dude comes ASAP to post on every article @ Sammy. Without a doubt, this guy gets alone and reads Samsung press releases one-handed.
