The 2016 year will probably be one of the most memorable years for Samsung and we’re not saying this in a good way. We remind you that last year, the Korean-based company was forced to discontinue and even recall every single Galaxy Note 7 unit that has sold. This was after more and more Galaxy Note 7 devices were spontaneously exploding or catching fire.
Samsung has finally introduced its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, two smartphones that come with some impressive specifications. The devices come with features such as Infinity Display and Iris Scanner, and, as you’ve expected, the company has made sure that these new devices will NOT randomly explode or catch fire.
According to reports, because of the Galaxy Note 7 issues, Samsung had to pay more attention to the battery. This is the reason why the company has performed more battery tests in order to make sure that it doesn’t explode. The company has actually lowered the capacity of the battery of the Galaxy S8, but tweaked it in a way to make it last longer.
We have to mention that when the issues with the Galaxy Note 7 have started, the development of the Galaxy S8 was almost complete. This means that Samsung had to take a second look at the new device and implement a few design tweaks. This is the reason why the batteries of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus have been reduced. Back then, a Samsung spokesperson mentioned that the capacity of the new battery is actually slightly smaller because of the redesign of the battery.
The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will be available in stores starting from April 21, 2017. What are your thoughts about the upcoming Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus? Will you purchase the devices once they will hit the stores or will you wait for a few weeks to see if they have any major issues?
