Samsung’s flagship for the year 2017 is the Galaxy S8, which comes with a rather larger screen than its predecessor as the screen size is 5.8-inch, though the resolution is still the good 1440p Quad HD one. There will be two variants, as usual, one for a few markets being powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and another by the new Exynos 9 chipset for a few others.
Samsung has changed the design a bit with there being no Edge variant separately and thus the Galaxy S8 has dual-edge screen and the home button is pushed to the back and maximum area is given for the screen from top to bottom.
Check below for the full phone specifications, and rating of the Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone.
