Remember that this sale of Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus handsets will be on sale up to April 28. The S8 is already real, but we don't have actual details on the next iPhone. "Until now, pre-orders for the Galaxy S8 reached 620,000 units, with the 128GB Galaxy S8 Plus accounting for 150,000 units", a Samsung official told the Korean Herald. Citing industry sources, the publications said the prototype could be "a preliminary version of its upcoming foldable smartphone, dubbed Galaxy X". The curved screen in the S8 and S8 Plus - made of flexible organic light-emitting diodes - has lower production yields, presumably at around 60 percent, compared to those screens based on rigid OLED or the liquid crystal display.
However, Samsung issued a statement on Tuesday night stating that Bixby won't be available on the Galaxy S8 in the U.S. market until "later in the spring".
