Gadget lovers are desperately waiting for the launch of iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy S8. However, Samsung is getting ready to officially launch its much-awaited handsets at its upcoming event on March 29, 2017. Going by his tweet, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be priced at €799 (approximately Rs. 56,199) while the bigger Galaxy S8+ will come with a price tag of €899 (approximately Rs. 63, 233). The screens on both models also curve over the edges of the phones, a design we've seen on Samsung's Edge phones. The images show how the new device stacks up against its S7 Edge predecessor and the standard-sized version of the iPhone 7. The favorite at this point is Apple Inc.'s (NASDAQ:AAPL) 10th-anniversary iPhone 8, due out in September.

It is speculated that it will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip in the United States and an Exynos 8895 for worldwide markets. The font is nearly all screen, which means you should expect a virtual home button. Previous reports have claimed the Galaxy S8 will get a 12MP main camera, but the sensor will be improved when compared to Galaxy S7 series. The blog said that the home button has been replaced by a touch-sensitive control strip on the bottom of the screen. The company is expecting its new pair of Android flagships will be even more successful, partially due to the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco that left millions of loyal Samsung customers without a brand new device last fall.

Some photos that have leaked in the network show this new pair of AKG headphones that will come with the phone when it goes on sale. The Dex feature is supposed to offer a Windows Continuum like experience, that will let the user connect the phone to a display and use a mouse a keyboard emulating a desktop experience.
