After what Samsung went through with the Galaxy Note 7 battery debacle, expectations from the company were incredibly high. All rumours aside, the big reveal by Samsung was the existence of not one, but two Galaxy S8 variants. Ditching the non-curved form factor for good, Samsung revealed two smartphones, the Galaxy S8 and the GalaxyS8+. The Samsung Galaxy S8+ comes with a massive 6.2 inch screen packed into a body that is noticeably smaller than other phones with a display this big. The India variant of the phone runs not on the Snapdragon 835m but on Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 SoC which is also based on the 10nm FinFET technology. Surprisingly, Samsung completely glossed over the camera in their grand unveiling, leading many to believe it was the same sensor as the one found in the Samsung Galaxy S7/Galaxy S7 edge; it is not. The Samsung Galaxy S8+ has been dubbed “Samsung’s safe bet” and in the next few pages, we are going to take a closer and a very detailed look at just how far in their comfort zone Samsung decided to stay.
