India will get the Exynos 8895 variant instead of the Snapdragon 835 chipset that is available in the US. Flipkart is the online partner for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ and it will also be available via select offline retail stores.

Both the Galaxy S8 and the S8+ are exact replicas of each other on first look.

Starting with the display, both the phones have some extra real estate by reducing the size of bezels at both top and bottom.

The new Galaxy S8 specific features that catch the attention, this is because the smartphone will ship with Google Assistant, which is the part of the Android operating system and have some of the similar features as Bixby. The Samsung Galaxy S8+, as the name suggests, is bigger and comes with a larger 6.2-inch Super AMOLED display with same QHD resolution but 531ppi. Samsung isn't launching a new Edge phone this year, because probably, both its new Galaxy S phones have just the right amount of curves and Edge-functionality built right into them.

The parliamentary assembly of the Council of Europe (CoE) also noted that the referendum "fell short of CoE standards". The Kremlin said in a statement that Putin congratulated Erdogan for the "successful carrying-out" of the referendum.

That also begs the question - could this model use the design we keep hearing about with a fingerprint scanner under the display glass? Some Samsung customers in South Korea are reporting their Galaxy S8 has a red-tinted screen - but the electronics giant has sought to downplay the issue, saying it can be manually fixed.

Comparing the newly launched Galaxy S8 with its predecessor will show you some major changes this time.
