  • Samsung Galaxy S8 Update: Latest Smartphone Comes Under Fire for Red-Tinted Display Panel

Gadgets 360 has exclusively learned that Samsung Galaxy S8 price in India will be Rs. 62,600; this is the MRP (Maximum Retail Price), while the market operating price (MOP) is Rs. 57,900. The phonemaker has said that Bixby voice commands will not be activated until spring. With screens of 5.8 inch and 6.2 inches, Samsung S8 and S8 Plus is the flagship phone of Samsung and a successor to the S7. After the whole Bixby controversy, it seems now that users are complaining about the reddish tint that they see in their display panel.

Industry watchers agree that there shouldn't be any recalls this time around, as the display glitch isn't a safety hazard and is only present on a small number of Galaxy S8 units.

Those who preorder the device will get a free wireless charger that supports fast charging. It also comes with Super AMOLED screen.

The dual-camera setup, according to Kuo, will be the "most important upgrade" in the Galaxy Note 8. The image shows a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor under the dual lens camera.

Now talking about the specifications of the phones, both of them are very similar. It may have a few new features the help improve photos, but ultimately, it's the same sensor.

Samsung has been working on its own AI-powered personal assistant to compete with the likes of Cortana, Echo, Google Assistant and Siri, and has finally announced its release alongside the new flagship galaxy devices. For models that will be available in countries other than the US, Samsung will use Exynos 9 (8895) Octa-core (2.35 GHz Quad + 1.9 GHZ Quad) processor. After all if a phone is hard or nearly impossible to fix, then either you'll have to be very careful with it, or resort to changing to a new phone. It would also be available for offline purchase via Samsung's official retail partners.
