They suspect a flaw in the quality of the new phones, which could potentially encourage prospective buyers to postpone their purchases until the devices are fixed.

In other Galaxy S8 news, you probably know about the device's new digital assistant feature, Bixby. Though the USA variant comes with the Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 835 processor.

Anticipation is high for the worldwide release of Samsung's next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8, this Friday. "The Samsung galaxy s8 and s8 plus is water and dust resistant (IP68 rating)". Powering the S8 is a 3000mAh battery, whereas the S8 Plus is a slightly larger 3500mAh battery. The analyst says that it will feature a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2960 resolution (QHD+). He said that the camera will be the Galaxy Note 8's most significant update, apart from the Infinity Display design we're all expecting.

Samsung's Galaxy S8 redemption tour keeps moving forward. The smartphones also come with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of onboard storage, and support 256GB expandable storage through a microSD card. Moreover, some pointed out that the phone's display panel had already been optimized, as noted by Engadget. Interestingly this model also doesn't appear to have a fingerprint scanner, or at least, it's not in the rear location we saw on the production model.

The Galaxy S8 and S8+ became available for preorder on April 7th, which means the phones took just 10 days to reach the milestone. Galaxy S8+ has a 12MP Primary Dual Pixel Camera, 8MP Front Camera and is fueled by a 3,500 mAh Battery. The possession of this feature is also unique to Samsung as Apple gives no option to extend iPhone 7 display. Both the phones will go on sale across online and offline channels starting May 5th. Both the smartphones run on Android 7.0 Nougat with Samsung's own custom UI on top.
