Samsung Galaxy S8 pre-orders crosses 1 million units mark

Samsung Galaxy S8 pre-orders crosses 1 million units mark

There have even been suggestions that the "stretched" 18.5:9 ratio of the Galaxy S8 smartphones led to instability of the display's structure. Despite having a attractive looking display, some global users are complaining about the freakish 18:5:9 aspect ratio. Here's how to change your homescreen launcher on the Galaxy S8.

While it's hard to say how common this issue is, it's something to watch out for if you're planning on buying a Galaxy S8 this week. The device is IP68 rated, meaning it is water and dust resistant. Ahead of the launch, Flipkart had already put up banners on the site announcing that pre-orders for the two smartphones will begin on April 19 at 12 noon. At present, the Bixby is available only in Korea. After the whole Bixby controversy, it seems now that users are complaining about the reddish tint that they see in their display panel.

The Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro also has a fingerprint sensor on the front and has a massive 4,000 mAh battery pack that fits its size.

When it comes to unlocking your Galaxy S8 with biometric security, there's no shortage of options. It also supports USB Type-C which is very useful for fast charging.

There's no estimate on the number of units affect and whether the issue would exist on the Galaxy S8 phones sold outside Korea. The phone boasts a 6.2 QHD display with least bezels along sides. A 12MP f1.7 dual pixel camera does the rear camera's duty while an 8MP f1.7 auto-focus camera is there to work as the front camera.

Another feature of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ which has made them the most liked smartphones is Bixby.

The devices are powered by the Snapdragon 835 processor in the U.S and Samsung's own 3GHz Exynos 8895 processor in other regions including India alongside 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage expandable via a microSD card (up to 256GB). However, pre-bookings for both the smartphones are said to commence from today itself!
