After sharing a photo of the Samsung Galaxy S8, another user asked the others to check whether the phone in the image seemed "too red or not".

It is the world's first mobile device certified by the UHD Alliance as Mobile HDR Premium, with the same vibrant colours and contrasts while watching any programme.

Samsung's Galaxy S8 redemption tour keeps moving forward.

Yes, recently, a popular YouTube channel called "What is Inside?" has done an experiment around Galaxy S8 battery collaborating with another YouTube channel called JerryRigEverything.

Samsung delivered somewhat of a surprise when it confirmed the Note series would return this year in the form of the Galaxy Note 8. The smartphone is expected to be available on both online and offline retailers. But Samsung ditched those plans because it had to reposition the fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone.

We have heard about Samsung Galaxy Note 8 leaks and rumors that suggested the handset will have a lot of things in common.

It is not clear yet whether Samsung is changing the software on all Galaxy S8 models, but we will find out as soon as the flagship smartphone goes on sale and users share their impressions. Samsung has also brought the much sought after water resistance feature on the Galaxy S8 and the S8+.

Samsung Galaxy S8 sports a 5.8-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED panel, whereas the S8 Plus sports a larger 6.2-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED panel.

That's not all since Kuo chose to reveal even more about the upcoming Note 8 model, and said that it will come with a 6.4-inch QHD+ OLED. Samsung India has said that you can use the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+'s iris scanner to authenticate transactions via Samsung Pay even in India. The South Korean tech giant might launch two different processors version, a Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895, depending on the region.
