Samsung is now offering anyone who pre-orders the S8 the chance to get it in their pocket eight days before everyone else. Dropping the iconic home button in the latest devices, Samsung has opted for an nearly bezel-less front design with a screen-to-body ratio of 83 percent. The company has launched both the Galaxy S8 as well as the Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones here for the Indian market at an event here in New Delhi. "The Samsung galaxy s8 and s8 plus is water and dust resistant (IP68 rating)". Flipkart is the online partner for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ and it will also be available via select offline retail stores. While Samsung said that it can be adjusted in the settings, users are saying that they were unable to do so because the display panel was already optimized. This is why the new Nougat is now available for Samsung Galaxy Note 5 devices, but only in Canada. Actual sales of both the phones will start from May 5.

The S8 model also includes a handy device management function with the help of which you can keep a tab on how much memory you are now using, the phone's battery status and the amount of available storage.

Coming to the hardware, the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus comes loaded with Exynos 8895 octa-core processor which is built on the 10nm process. Both of them also come with a protective layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 5 up front. The 8 MP front camera sports a sensor with f/1.7 aperture. Both the Galaxy S8 and S8+ house a 12-megapixel dual-pixel rear camera and 8MP selfie camera.

With the S8, there are three ways to log in to your device other than the usual swipe, password, pin code and pattern options.

Both the phones also have a separate dedicated button to trigger Bixby - Samsung's response to Google Assistant and Apple Siri. The smartphones also support fast charging technology and wireless fast charging facility as well.
