First, it is noteworthy that the new smartphone is its extremely stylish appearance. The glass panels of Gorilla Glass 5 is framed by a glossy frame 7000 aluminum. The device looks much more progressive and original than the previous model.
But elegant curved shape is not the only feature of the flagship. Main attention is drawn to the screen. The upper and lower frame is surprisingly thin, so the display occupies almost the entire surface of the front panel. Key controls are mounted directly on the monitor and the fingerprint scanner is moved to the rear panel.
Above the screen is a 3.7 MP IRIS scanner recognition, iris and face. If the first feature is familiar to users at Note 7, the latter is an interesting novelty that will appeal to many.
From the front panel disappeared the manufacturer’s logo. But with this design there is no need for: Samsung Galaxy S8 stands out among its competitors is original, recognizable appearance.
Due to design changes with almost the same dimensions (148,9х68,1×8 mm — new; 142,4х69,6×7,9 mm — the older model) increased the diagonal of the monitor (with 5.8″ 5.1″). The aspect ratio was non-standard: 18,5:9. Now can display more information, it is more convenient to work in multiwindow mode. Video can be stretched in length or choose a standard format with thin black frames on the edges. It will comfortably be viewed in both cases.

In Ukraine the novelty will come with 8-core Exynos 8895 (4 cores of 2.35 GHz, 4 — 1.9 GHz). RAM — 4 GB internal — 64 GB. There is support for memory cards up to 256 GB. About the performance of the device is significantly ahead of its predecessor.
The operating system uses fresh Android 7 with a proprietary shell Samsung Experience 8.1.
One of the key innovations of the device is the intelligent assistant Bixby. It’s not just a voice assistant, and a platform that analyzes user preferences in applications, and offering the most convenient solutions. However, while Bixby adapted for a limited number of applications and works only in the English and Korean languages.
Another interesting innovation was the mode DeX. Through a special docking station to your smartphone, you can connect two USB devices (e.g. mouse and keyboard) to broadcast its content on an external monitor. The application interface will adapt to the big screen.
Innovations were made and the camera apparatus. So, 5 MP front sensor the older models gave way to a new 8 MP. Main camera remains the same, but have been improved its performance. Now it works much faster although we can not say that the photo quality has changed significantly.
The battery remains the same as that of the older model: 3000 mA*h. Its total charge is more than enough for half a day or two of using the device.
With all the innovation and pleasant bonuses price of Samsung galaxy S8 will be about 25,000 USD. This value is quite typical of the progressive flagship, justified by its performance and features.
