A new Samsung smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ , has now launched in the UK, with the smartphone going on sale next week.
The smartphone, which is being marketed as a “tougher alternative” to the iPhone 7, features a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display, which offers up to 326 pixels-per-inch (ppi) resolution.
That means it can display a 1080p (2160p) picture and still look sharp.
But the smartphone isn’t all smooth sailing.
There’s a 6.7mm thick body that’s 3.5mm thicker than the iPhone’s 5.5-inch display, and it’s running on Samsung’s latest version of Android.
It’s also using a fingerprint scanner and it will have a 5 megapixel camera, making it capable of capturing HD video.
Samsung is selling the Galaxy S7 smartphone in the US, as well as in the European Union and in the Middle East.
The device has a 4G LTE network that’s capable of speeds of up to 3.8Mbps.
Samsung is offering a free two-year trial of the Samsung S8 Plus smartphone with its purchase of the phone.
The device, which costs £739.99, has a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 835 processor, a 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 5MP front camera and a 3,000mAh battery.
The company’s flagship smartphone, Galaxy S9, will be released in March.
