Short Bytes: At its Unpacked 2017 event, Samsung launched its Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones. Powered by Android Nougat, the phone ditches most of its bezel and comes with Samsung’s own digital assistant Bixby. These new flagships by Samsung will be available for pre-order on March 30th.

At its special event, smartphone giant Samsung unveiled its latest flagship Samsung Galaxy S8. If I call it Samsung’s “most important smartphone”, I won’t be wrong.

As expected, Samsung Galaxy S8 comes in two versions — the standard 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 and 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+. Apart from almost a bezel-less display, Samsung has moved the home button beneath the display. The phone is curved around the left and right. Samsung’s calling it “infinity display”.

Galaxy S8 comes with Samsung’s own smart digital assistant Bixby. You can use its iris or fingerprint scanners to make payments and unlock your device. These phones are also dust and water resistant.

These premium smartphones are available for pre-order on March 30th. They’ll start shipping in the US on April 21st. The pricing hasn’t been revealed yet by Samsung but it’s going to cost a lot–there’s no doubt about that.
