Samsung Galaxy S8 launch: Samsung reveals its long-awaited iPhone killer

9 months ago

Samsung is set to unveil its new flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8, on Wednesday afternoon. The launch of the device is seen as a crucial moment for Samsung coming after the scandals that saw it forced to recall and cease production of theGalaxy Note 7, its previous top-end phone.

Samsung is expected to have pulled out all the stops for the launch, introducing a new design that will see an edge-to-edge display almost entirely covering the front of the device. This appears to be confirmed by leaked images and Samsung’s teaser adverts, which show the only visible edges at the phone’s top and bottom.

Rumours point to the phone coming in two screen sizes. It is also set to feature Samsung’s intelligent assistant software Bixby, which was announced last week.
