Samsung Galaxy S8 Specifications, Review, Price In Nigeria, Kenya, India And USA

The ever awaited power-housing Samsung smartphones are out! The Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus . Samsung does it once more and this time they did it the expected way, They announced their 2017 Flagship devices this month before Apple whom we are yet to know what they are planning to bring up as iPhone 8, am sure it's not going to be ordinary.
The specifications of the Samsung S8 would wow you and is sure to be the perfect specs to compete with what Apple Inc would introduce next.

Design is a virtue that these Samsung devices possess, they come in an Aluminium Frame Body with color options of Maple Gold, Black Spy, Coral Blue and Orchid Silver.
Water and Dust Resistant with Gorilla Glass 5 Front and Back, Special button to summon Bixby virtual assistant.

The S8 has a wide clear 5.8 inches Super Amoled Display with Gorilla Glass 5 protection and a resolution of 1,440 x 2950 pixels.
Equipped with a 12MP Dual Pixel Rear Camera similar to that of the S7 but with better software and optimization, 8MP Front Camera with lots of features.

Remember the 1 Gigabit LTE i talked about that would be released on the ZTE future device? The Samsung S8 and S8 has it, making them the first devices to use the protocol.
Very fast processing speed that also made the devices support 1 gigabit LTE, I mean the Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895 chip-sets. These chip-sets are used on both devices both varies between regions though they both perform just the same, Both are Quad-core. Snapdragon 835 = (4xKyro 280 4xCortex-A53) with Adreno 540 GPU, while the Exynos 8895 chipset = (4x2nd Gen Mongoose 4xCortex-A53) with Mali G71 GPU.

Internal storage of the device is also country dependent, most countries would get the 4GB Ram and 64GB of Storage version while presumably selected countries like Korea and China would have an increased 6GB Ram and 128GB storage variant instead, all variants has a Micro-SD Card slot and UFS Card support, running on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat and Samsung's Bixby (more on this would be posted soon) virtual assistant.

Features are: Fingerprint Sensor, Iris Scanner and Face Recognition, 3.5mm Headphone Jack ( headphones comes out of the box ).
Battery capacity on the S8 is good with a 3000mAh Sealed Li-Po Battery, Adaptive Fast Charging, Quick Charge 2.0, WPC&PMA Wireless Charging are the battery features these devices have to offer, an offer that has been made by only few devices.

The devices are both Single Sim with Dual Sim variants available in selected countries. Connectivity options are: 4G LTE ( Download speed of upto 1Gbps ), Bluetooth 5.0 ( haven't seen this version on any other device ),  USB Type C ( Ver. 3.1 ), WiFi, NFC, Galileo, Beidou and GPS.
