Unlocked Galaxy S8 Active to be released soon by Samsung?

Unlocked Galaxy S8 Active to be released soon by Samsung?

Tom's Guide said the Note 8's dual rear cameras make it the "top camera phone" on the market, while BGR's Zach Epstein wrote, "The S Pen alone adds so much to the user experience that I can't picture myself using a Samsung phone without it". The device was expected to be released on 11th September first but then it was expected to be 25th September.

Well, it seems like the South Korean company had a good reason for that. Earlier only the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus had this VR platform support and that too only after a software update which came months after the phones' release. According to the report, Samsung will offer this special perk to only those customers who chose to preorder the handsets from the company directly.

Samsung Electronics finalized the price tag of 64 gigabyte Galaxy Note 8 at 1.09 million won (US$962), which is slightly higher than its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 7, which was priced at 989,800 won.

Samsung Galaxy C8 boasts a 5.5-inch full HD Super AMOLED display, powered by a 2.39GHz octa-core processor whose model has not yet described and comes with Android 7.1 Nougat Out of the box. The device launched into the mid-range smartphone segment, with the usual metal-unibody design in two different storage variants.

We have covered the leaks of the Galaxy C8 extensively and even recently reported that the Galaxy C8 might be the first C series smartphone to sport a dual camera setup.

Several reviewers have also pointed out that the Note 8 retains the same drawback as the S8 and S8 Plus by locating the fingerprint security sensor on the back of the device alongside the dual cameras. The handset also sports an 8-megapixel selfie sensor.
