DisplayMate experts call Galaxy S8's screen the best they have ever seen

The new Samsung Galaxy S8, left, and Galaxy S8 Plus mobile phones are displayed in NY.

For months, specialist Samsung news websites have been talking about patents reportedly filed by the manufacturer at the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO), hinting at a possible design for the firm's future folding smartphone.

Samsung recently unveiled the Galaxy S8, and now all eyes are on the upcoming launch of Apple's next flagship handset, the iPhone 8. But the Samsung S8 Plus is bigger and heavier than both smartphones at 159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1mm and 173g.

"The Galaxy S8 series is built on Samsung Knox, a defense-grade security platform". So, if you are familiar with the S7 Edge, the S8 is nearly the same.

NEW YORK-Samsung seems to be playing it safe-at least with its battery-as it unveils its first major smartphone since the embarrassing recall of its fire-prone Note 7.

Samsung has finally launched the long anticipated Galaxy S8 series. This was because the media people are focused on Samsung's proclamations from its first Unpacked event for this year. From the almost nonexistent bezels to the elegant curves at both edges, and the way the panel dominates the surface of the phone, the S8's screen might be its most singularly defining feature.

Seeing is believing: We knew the Galaxy S8 displays looked good to our eyes, but we didn't know they were this good. The phones come with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, which is expandable.

We haven't finished our Samsung Galaxy S8 review just yet, but we've been impressed with the phone so far.

The technology allows users to register their face on their phone, which only unlocks when it "reads" that same face in the front-facing camera. The devices are equipped with an advanced 8MP F1.7 Smart auto focus front camera and 12MP F1.7 Dual Pixel rear camera for the best low-light, zoom and anti-blur photos with enhanced image processing. Nonetheless, the Galaxy S8 and LG G6 are both beautiful-looking devices, with designs that virtually ditch the top and bottom bezel, Tech Radar reported.
