Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+
Galaxy S8 and S8+ redefines bezel-less display and it is offering rather a smooth and uninterrupted surface that flows seamlessly over the edges. As the company has completely redesigned the phone from the inside out, Samsung has embedded the home button under the edge-to-edge screen, where it stays hidden until you need it.

Vodafone has issued a list of upcoming software updates coming to various smart phones in Australia, including the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ for which the Telco has ‘submitted’ the Android 7.1 Nougat version along with stability and bug fixes.
The Vodafone list is particularly about Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ software updates arriving in Australia, but despite that, the updates are likely to roll out widely to other regions as well soon. Of course, it’s still unclear just when the Android 7.1 Nougat update will roll out in Australia itself.
In April this year, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ running on Android 7.0 Nougat started shipping. The smart phones have sporadically received a few updates with security patches and some bug fixes. Both Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ have been so far acclaimed for their design and features, specifically the 18.5:9 aspect ratio Infinity Display. Samsung is now gearing up to present its anticipated flagship phablet, Galaxy Note 8, towards the end of this month. It will be interesting to see whether the successor to the unfortunate Galaxy Note 7 will make a successful mark in the market.
