Finally, Samsung finally unveiled the long-awaited Galaxy S8. We had the opportunity to gain access to the new S Series device before starting. Here is a practical overview of Samsung Galaxy S8 of the Samsung flagship in 2017, Next year, Samsung Galaxy S9 is going to release with many latest technologies, features and a stunning display.

Upcoming Galaxy S9 would come in the market with an approx. the price of around 1050USD. Some providers offer this smartphone sales model with the addition of points Gear VR virtual reality, getting discount cards and various promotions to customers.
Design and build quality:
Anyone who purchased the Galaxy S8 necessarily experienced a sense of awe in this smartphone. The edges of the device are rounded surprising. Also, you can see these edges on many other smartphones. Samsung Galaxy S9 will have a unique body and display design. There will neither be any physical home button present on its display nor a Bixby button as the S8 have.
Curved edges: Galaxy S8 and S8 +:
The metal frame is narrow, as the edge of the display on the front panel and rounded glass hardly leave any space for it. The camera does not protrude at the back of the phone and is surrounded by a thin bezel to protect the glass from scratches. As for the build quality, we were very surprised and enjoyed viewing this gadget. New Galaxy S9 will have an AMOLED, bezel-less display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Galaxy S8 / S8 + has USB Type-C, headphone jack, and mono speaker. Galaxy S8 has protection technology IP68, therefore it is protected from water. Samsung has provided a new flagship series S USB-port Type-C, in Note 7, but the headphone jack has remained the same. Galaxy S9 has also the same protective layer, protects from dust, moisture and drop-damage.
Location fingerprint scanner is a bit frustrating. Now it is back, next to the rear camera. In our quick test, we practice every time again and again tried to reach it with the finger and after a while, we finally managed to do it. iris scanner, which has been updated since the release Note 7 may be used as an alternative to the scanner the fingerprint to unlock the phone. If we talk about Galaxy S9, the fingerprint scanner is the best feature in it with a rapid unlocking speed.
The main attention is paid to the Samsung front of the Galaxy S8, and it is the most obvious. Surely no one wants to lug around a huge smartphone, etc. which is a tablet, so Samsung has balanced big screen with the body. In Galaxy S9, till now, no major clue about the panels on display is there, but still, as per the rumor, the display will be large having no physical button present on it. Will the Galaxy S9 with its AMOLED display sustain the ratio of 18.5:9 of S8 or not, we can’t say it right now. But the expectations for S9 to come up with great facilities, outstanding look, and interesting versions are very high.
