You will be able to pre-order the all new Samsung flagship devices from any of the major retailers and Samsung brand shops between April 1 and 15, 2017. However, this version of the Galaxy S8 will only be available via Microsoft's brick and mortar stores in the United States.

Samsung launched the S8 with many new security features, such as an iris scanner and a fingerprint sensor. LG smartphones don't usually carry the firing power of the Samsung Galaxy devices, but you'll want to check out this latest device.

As if these two are not enough, Microsoft has also found a way of equipping the Galaxy S8 and S8+ phones with its own Cortana digital assistant.

We have already mentioned Bixby, Samsung's AI assistant. This is 100mAh less than the S7 edge has. The headline change in Samsung's new flagship phone, which was just introduced last week in NY, is the massive display screen that the company was able to incorporate into the device, which is thanks in part to the removal of the traditional home button and much of the bezels around the screen. All four carriers are also offering a special deal from Samsung that includes a free Gear VR headset and controller (valued at $179) and Oculus Bonus Content for preorder buyers, while supplies last. The base Galaxy S8 smartphone comes with a large 5.8-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, while the Galaxy S8+ with a larger 6.2-inch panel.

"The phones can be unlocked by the face of a sleeping person, or even just by a photo", one source stated. Both the phones have a 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage on board. Among with these technologies, the most surprising things about the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus for the smartphone fans and the mobile industry is the 3.5mm headphone jack. But a video released Wednesday shows it may not be as safe as you'd hope.
