The Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 which was made official last month at Verizon store as Samsung Galaxy J7V has now been launched at mobile carrier Sprint as Samsung Galaxy J7 Perx. Evidently, the Galaxy S8 pre-orders have surpassed the Note 7's two week numbers in a mere two days. It might also help Samsung to put their 100 percent focus and attention on one project and can even make a greater smartphone. The retailer mentioned that British consumers are enthusiastic about the Galaxy S8 and a lot of them experienced the phone in its hands-on zones.

And now Samsung's latest flagship smartphones have been pitted against its biggest rival the iPhone 7 Plus in a series of tests.

While most consumers are probably already aware of the PR nightmare Samsung had to endure with the exploding Galaxy Note 7, there is also now a big scandal that is going on within the company in its home country, some may be aware of it, some may not.

A Samsung executive has told the media that the company doesn't plan to launch a fully foldable phone until at least 2019, but plans may change in the coming months.

The PR disaster allowed Apple, which rolled out the iPhone 7 in September, to edge past Samsung and claim a 20.3% share of the worldwide smartphone market.

The display of the Galaxy Note 8 will seemingly occupy a larger portion of the front of the unit in comparison to the Galaxy S8.

Instead Samsung included a touch-sensitive home button under the display, which is useful, but we'd like to see the company go the full way and include a fingerprint sensor below the screen.

The image, purported to be of Galaxy Note 8, was posted online by Slashleaks, revealing the phone to look much like a phablet version of Samsung's flagship phone Galaxy S8.
