Samsung Galaxy S8 proves to be more popular than S7

Samsung Galaxy S8

While the refurbished smartphone hasn't gone official as yet, rumors suggest the device will be launched with "Galaxy Note 7R" moniker.

After showcasing the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus late last month, Samsung Electronics kicked off local preorders on Friday which will last until next Monday. Recently there is yet another news which has stated that Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 has been noticed in the online media and it has reportedly received Wi-Fi certification. The retailer mentioned that British consumers are enthusiastic about the Galaxy S8 and a lot of them experienced the phone in its hands-on zones. While last year's Galaxy S7 was released without incident, the Note 7 was the last phone Samsung released in the US, and the Note line-up are the company's most advanced phones.

"The economically priced, high-performing Galaxy J series sustained Samsung's shipments and contributed significantly to the expansion of the brand's overall smartphone production volume". The Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 had earlier surfaced on FCC and WiFi certification site last month as well as Indian export and import site Zauba for INR 13,688.

Samsung Galaxy S8's improved version, meantime, has no confirmed release date yet.

From January to March, Samsung estimated a 48 percent rise in profits of $8.8 billion from a year ago on strong sales of memory chips and flat-panel televisions.

The PR disaster allowed Apple, which rolled out the iPhone 7 in September, to edge past Samsung and claim a 20.3% share of the worldwide smartphone market. It seems that a larger 6.2-inch model is selling better than the 5.8 inch S8. Samsung achieved the Galaxy S8 elegant design by making its components smaller, without sacrificing its performance.

Further rumours about the Samsung Galaxy Note8 are that it will have a fingerprint scanner on the bottom of the front screen, doubling as the virtual home button.

If you're buying it as part of a two-year deal it's not as expensive as you'd expect, but we'd like to see Samsung reduce the price for next year's phone if at all possible.
