The Galaxy S8 will have a 5.8-inch touchscreen, while the S8+ will come with a 6.2-inch panel, both Super AMOLED and sporting an odd 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Though the company has been tight lipped about its features, a lot has been already said and written about Samsung's device. Both displays would feature a WQHD+ resolution of 2,960 x 2,400 pixels and would also come with dual-edge curved displays. That's different than the Silver Titanium Galaxy S7 edge, which featured a silver face, but it will help to hide the array of sensors that are expected to be included on the front of the Galaxy S8.

Citing sources familiar with the situation, Bloomberg reports that the Samsung Galaxy S8 device will enable facial recognition payments within months of going on sale.

The recent leak on Twitter regarding pricing suggests it will be one of the most expensive smartphones on the market when it arrives, but still significantly cheaper than iPhone 8.

That's down to the tiny bezels and lack of a home button on the Samsung Galaxy S8, but it's an impressive achievement, as Samsung has effectively packed a phablet-sized screen into a more normal sized body. The phones will be powered with Bixby, a digital assistant that should act as a competition to Google Assistant, Siri and Alexa. And now days we are seeing number of reports about it's features and specifications. With Bixby, Samsung would be able to give consumers yet another reason why the Galaxy S8 would be a reasonable investment. Another possibility is that Samsung will repeat what it did with the S7 and release new colours later in the phone's life cycle.

Samsung's Galaxy Tab S3 comes as a substitute that seeks to please fans disappointed by the absence of the usual show stealer, the new Galaxy S flagship.

The Verge notes that Blass was the one to reveal the "first images" of the S8 device in January. This is a significant step above what Android Pay and Apple Pay now has to offer, and thus, it could be a feature that Samsung can utilize as one of the key reasons behind the Galaxy S8's premium price.

Samsung Galaxy S8 is slated for March 29th release in NY and London along with Galaxy S8 Plus. 9to5Mac projects that Samsung Galaxy S8 shipments will reach 40-45 million unit in 2017 that is lower than the 52 million units of Galaxy S7 previous year.
