The new smartphones are being closely watched because these devices mark the first major launch by Samsung after the devastating battery issues that forced the company to recall the Note7 and stop its production altogether in October a year ago.
With just a few more days for the launch of the Galaxy S8 duo in the country, here are some new and important features that we might experience in these smartphones.
It has been suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active will be released sometime in June, the same schedule all previous Active models have launched.
Samsung's new ultra-rugged star terminal, codenamed under the Cruiser codename, could soon be unveiled in the United States, later extending its marketing to other regions of the world. On the same lines, this Galaxy S8 Active is also expected to be a tough device that can withstand more drops, impacts, etc. Citing industry sources, Business Korea yesterday reported that the number of Galaxy S8 pre-orders coming in Friday and Saturday was 5 1/2 times higher than pre-orders for the Galaxy S7.

Samsung's flagship launch in India coincides with the global unveiling of Xiaomi's flagship Mi 6. And another interesting thing which is to be seen is that if the active variant of the device will come with the separate Bixby button or not. Going forward the Galaxy S8 series will most likely be the first to get all Nougat updates among Samsung devices this year. What should Samsung incorporate into its design and functionality? Accompanying the processor on the both the devices is 4GB of RAM, and 64GB storage, which can be expanded up to 256GB using a microSD card.
The S8 will be the safest Galaxy smartphone to date due to safety measures implemented to avoid the battery failures that caused some Note 7s to spontaneously combust, he said. Bixby is also expected to arrive for other Galaxy devices like Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge and Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
