Samsung Galaxy S8 is Already Closing in on 1 Million Pre-Orders


The phones will ship with Google Assistant, which is part of the Android operating system and boasts some of the same features as Bixby, such as helping users search for and order things like movie tickets and restaurant reservations.

When Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge were unveiled in March 2016, the two set a new pre-order record for any Samsung smartphone ever sold in South Korea.

In fact, investors and analysts have even predicted the sale for the first phase of Galaxy S8 and S8+. The new devices have been closely watched because it is the first major launch by the company after battery issues surfaced in the Note7, an earlier flagship device, forcing the company to stop production in October of the smartphone and recall over 3 million units.

Japan's Sunwolves will join the Australian conference , while Argentina's Jaguars will play in the South Africa conference . Impey said it was important to retain the struggling Sunwolves in order to have a footprint in the lucrative Asian market.

But, the dynamics surely have changed with this smartphone as the Galaxy S8 has a 95 percent screen-to-body ratio and we have no info on how Samsung plans to make the outer casing/design rugged.

After coming in behind Apple during the fourth quarter of previous year, Samsung grabbed the top spot in global smartphone market share in the first quarter of 2017, according to a report released today by the Taiwan-based market research firm TrendForce. There are also reports suggesting that Samsung VR headsets will come free upon pre-ordering either phone. SamMobile says the Galaxy S8 Active is codenamed Cruiser, and has model number SM-G892A. Key features of Bixby, including Vision, Home and Reminder, will be available with the global launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8 on April 21.

According to the rumor mill, the Note 8 may be coming with a 6.32-inch curved AMOLED display which means that this device will be significantly larger than the Galaxy S8+. 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. So if the smallish battery capacities on the S8 and S8 Plus are not getting your juices flowing perhaps the Galaxy S8 Active will. The S8 Active will likely retain the rating, but with the certification relying on simulated testing in lab conditions and not real-world usage scenarios, you shouldn't rely on it too much.
