Is Samsung planning dual cameras for the Galaxy Note 8?

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has only been released to a few users that pre-ordered and is still about to be unleashed in other markets this week, but already it is facing a bit of a backlash.

Speaking of which, both the Galaxy S8 and S8+ still boast of a glass - Corning Gorilla Glass 5 this time round - and metal body, but unlike their predecessor phones, Samsung's 2017 flagships have near bezel-less screens. The global electronics giant has scheduled the Galaxy S8 launch event in New Delhi at 12 pm today. It will be interesting to see if Samsung's positioning of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ models works, given that it has to cover up for the losses from Note 7 fiasco.

The devices will be available on Flipkart and Samsung's online store from May 5. Thanks to the high screen-to-body ratio on both the devices, Samsung has managed to pack in larger displays while maintaining a relatively compact frame.

As for security, both the phones offer a wide selection of biometric technologies including a fingerprint scanner, iris scanner and facial recognition so users can select a secure biometric authentication method that works best for them.

Samsung Galaxy S8 comes with a 5.8-inch Quad HD (2960 x 1440 pixels) Infinity display which is curved on both sides while the Galaxy S8+ comes with a 6.2-inch Quad-HD display.

The two Samsung smartphones are the first flagships since the fateful Samsung Galaxy Note 7, and will determine how the public perceives the brand after the debacle.

If you buy phones and you're in it for the long haul, like 2-3 years, then things like how easy is the phone to fix is an important question.

The phones available in India will run on Samsung's Exynos processor and have 4 GB of RAM. The device also supports storage expansion using a microSD card.

The new phones come with Samsung's new digital assistant Bixby, which will compete with Apple's Siri, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. They also come with faster charging capabilities.
