Some Galaxy S8 units will feature Samsung's own ISOCELL S5K2L2 sensor, while others pack Sony's IMX333 sensor.

After the devastating end of Samsung Galaxy Note 7, people have become more concerned about the battery issues related to the smartphone launched by the company.

Samsung has finally introduced its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, two smartphones that come with some impressive specifications. In fact, many have perceived the Samsung Galaxy S line of flagship phones as responses to Apple's innovative originals, even though that has not always been the case. The new smartphones are powered by the new octa-core Exynos processors with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. A Samsung spokesperson told Mashable that members of the media ran similar experiments before the unveiling but were unable to unlock their devices.
