Galaxy S8 enjoys higher than expected sales

15 April, 2017, 01:08 | Author: Jacqueline Ellis

Samsung is also reportedly working on the Galaxy S9.

Apparently, the leaks and tips suggest that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will not have a different design from Galaxy S8 but the phone will be getting a virtual home button.

This seams to work for the company as the Galaxy Edge phones enjoyed rather good sales and the Galaxy S8 already looks like a victor. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are IP68 certified dust and water resistant, but Samsung in previous years has rolled out devices compliant with the USA military's MIL-STD-810G rating for withstanding temperature extremes, altitude, shock, and other environmental variables.

As for the firm's marketing strategies in its dwindling Chinese market, the Samsung mobile chief said the company would make all-out efforts to regain "the hearts and of the Chinese consumers, saying that Samsung believes Chinese consumers will recognize good products". These results were further doubled by the Galaxy Note 7 a few months later, with reported figures that clocked an impressive 200,000 units in just two days.

I think we're a confident group that if we play our game, we're very capable of winning with the lineup we have now. The focus naturally shifted to Galchenyuk, who has been a lightning rod for debate all season for the Habs.

The latest report falls in line with Samsung's decision to patent the foldable device technology sometime previous year.

With the Samsung Galaxy S8 launched, many wondered if there will be an "Active" variant that will be launched this year. Well, that's not happening because Samsung's voice assistant Bixby won't be ready on the Galaxy S8 until April 21. Priced starting at $720 for the 5.8-inch S8 and $840 for the 6.2-inch S8 Plus (pictured above), the new devices are being positioned as premium phones created to compete with Apple's iPhone 8, which is expected to come out this fall.

SamMobile reminds us that Active versions usually launch in June, so there's plenty of time to learn more details about it. Bixby Voice will be available in the USA on the Galaxy S8 later this spring. But with an IP68 rating already on board the biggest draw here will likely be added impact resistance if they can avoid beating the S8 with the ugly stick too much.
