In this renewal of Samsung’s S series, we should start talking about the screen, as it is probably the most significant change from the previous generation carried out by the S7 and S7 Edge. The Korean manufacturer’s Super AMOLED panels grow to 5.8 inches for the S8 and up 6.2 inches for the Plus model, a good jump considering previous 5.1 and 5.5 inches.
The resolution increases slightly as it also varies the appearance of the panel, from 16:9 to 18.5:9. It forces the resolution to grow in height reaching up to 2,960 pixels by 1,440 pixels. It is reinforced with the software of the phone itself which will allow, among other things, to have an app open and watch a video at the bottom, PiP mode. The screen is the protagonist in this new design of the S line that takes the frames to the minimum.
The new Samsung Galaxy S8 is available for purchase and the official price is around 600 dollars. Remember that they are available in three colors as Midnight Black, Orchid Gray and Arctic Silver.
The differences between Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus have not been only a matter of inches, even though the gigantism of the Note would benefit them at first. Everything had to do with productivity and with the famous S Pen that has accompanied the line since its inception. It is something that the S does not count on and, therefore, only influences the users of these pencils. Well, the rest of the improvements have been coming, little by little, to the other phones.
With the growth of the S series, the need for the Note line to continue to exist will be limited to software. In the security aspect, we find the iris scanner in the new Samsung Galaxy S8, a feature that had premiered the Note 7 earlier. There is no doubt that the S Pen has been a differentiator, but is it really used?
So everything will remain in the field of software in the improvements that Samsung decides to continue providing its future devices, so that they can reign in the field of productivity and in more labor-intensive fields. Because otherwise, if there is no differentiation in this aspect, few differences will be between buying Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus now. Samsung has done well offering the maximum possible features to its S line, the most emblematic of the house.
