Everything you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the S8 plus

Mobile phone and tech mega power, Samsung are set to release the 8th phone from their flagship S series range on the 28th of April. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ will feature internal memory on both devices of 64GB. It will also come with an expendable storage slot of up to 256GB, more improvements come with a 8mp with f1.7 aperture and also the very welcome introduction of ultra HD video on their front facing camera, some slight changes to the software also come with their 12mp dual pixel back camera. Most striking however is Samsung’s decision to get rid of their home button in favor of what they are calling the “infinity screen”. The S8 is 5″7 inch in screen size while the S8+ comes in a whopping 6″2 inch screen. Both devices come with an octa-core processor and Android 7.0 out of the box. Samsung have created their own personal assistant akin to google now which they have dubbed “Bigsby” it will be interesting to see how this software will connect, with the S3 and the introduction of “S voice” those who bought the S3 will know how unsuccessful the S voice technology was. Bigsby is out currently in the US however it will come to Ireland at a later date still to be announced.
