Galaxy S8 pre-orders said to exceed S7

He added to the announcement, saying that the Galaxy S8 will be the safest Galaxy smartphone to date.

Samsung's comments about pre-orders comes just a day after reports surfaced that its Bixby voice-activated personal assistant won't make its debut in the Galaxy S8 in the US after all.

The newly launched flagship smartphones from Samsung i.e. the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus are undoubtedly one of the stunning looking devices which we have seen in a long time.

But to make sure the Bixby English version works seamlessly, Samsung says the virtual assistant won't be available in the US market until May. In India, the Exynos variants are expected to launch.

All set to go head to head with the iPhone 7, Samsung's Galaxy S8 has been unveiled at the 'Unpacked 2017' event in NY. Both the Galaxy S8 and the S8+ come with the display curved towards the side edges with bezels on top and bottom. The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 is also expected to have a facial recognition feature, infinity display, and augmented reality. Earlier this year, there was a rumor saying that the Samsung might be working on a new foldable smartphone that Samsung will be offering this year. The AT&T Samsung Galaxy S8 Active will not immediately follow the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, but would release a few months later. The device packs 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot.

As we are told from the web site specializing in the firm, SamMobile, the USA operator AT & T would have escaped information that points to the existence of a new Galaxy S8 Active, with military grade certification.

It is going to run on Android Nougat OS powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, and will have a 3,000 mAh battery. MIL-STD-810G standard compliance and IP68 certification are likely to be incorporated given to understanding that the S8 Active will have an Active key and the Bixby button.

Galaxy S8 is a crucial launch for the company given its Note 7 never went on sale in India.
