Mobile to begin shipping Galaxy S8 just 2 days before street release

Things were not-so-good for Samsung, and senior executives were heard telling the media that Samsung was going to take to revive its lost glory.

Mobile business chief Koh Dong-jin said the S8, which begin sales in South Korea, the United States and Canada on April 21. With the rest of the world, it is easy to estimate that Samsung sold millions of the S8, and it seem like that customers didn't lose the trust is the company after the Note 7 blow up fiasco. This is Samsung's first release after the mess that was the Note 7.

Reportedly, Samsung is witnessing a strong demand across the globe and the new devices are all set to be released by the end of April in different locations. The only numbers they revealed were those of the pre-orders in South Korea, its home market, and were over 728,000. The Galaxy flagships feature a 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch QHD AMOLED "Infinity Display" with the front and rear sides encased in Gorilla Glass 5. Samsung is back with a vengeance as sales report show that the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus is the one to beat this year and the years to come.

A few hours ago, Samsung announced the Galaxy S8 and S8 + in France.

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".
