It has released its first TV commercial for the Galaxy S8 on one of its most important feature i.e. all screen design. Due to that state of affairs, it seems unlikely that the second largest wireless carrier in the country will start selling the Galaxy S8 Active as soon as the regular variants of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus launch.

Samsung CEO of the Galaxy S8's iris recognition Mark Clifton, stated that Federal Bureau of Investigation utilizes 13 points of identification per fingerprint, which 10 fingers might have 130 unique identifiers.

Ever since the pre-order opened, though the device was priced as high as it is usually with the Galaxy series, (around 90,000), there wasn't much of the step back from the Samsung fans.


The publication added that Galaxy S8 pre-orders also outpaced those for last year's fire-prone and recalled Galaxy Note 7, which had a record 400,000 pre-orders. Both phones have a dual-curved display like we saw on the Galaxy S7 edge. the Galaxy S8+ costs approximately $100 (or Rs. 6,700) more than the Galaxy S8+.

As for the pricing, T-Mobile is selling the regular 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 for $750, or $30/month for a period of two years. This time it is, Samsung Galaxy S8 and iPhone 8. It is said that LG is also working on one and that we might also see it this year.

Next, Samsung shows off the fast autofocus and burst mode of the Galaxy S8.


Following the official statement, consumers who opt to buy the newest offering from Samsung will have to wait until the early part of the second half of the year to get the complete experience of Bixby.

AT&T will exclusively retail the Galaxy S8 Active, a special edition of Samsung's upcoming Android flagship that's expected to feature a more robust body, sources with knowledge of the matter told SamMobile. The company has also announced the DeX docking station for the smartphones, which is priced at $149 (₹10,546). Comparing the prices, both the devices may cost above Rs. 50,000 in India.
