The Samsung Galaxy S8 is slated to go on sale in Canada, South Korea, and the United States on April 21 and promises loads of features.  The most prominent being Samsung 8-point battery check which should alleviate consumer fears of exploding phones stemming the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 incident.

According to Samsung Mobile business chief Koh Dong-jin, "It's still a bit early, but initial response to the pre-orders that have begun at various places across the world have been better than expected,".

The new Samsung Galaxy S8 will be equipped with either 5.8-inch or 6.2-inch (14.73 cm or 15.75 cm) curved screen and feature the largest screens to date among all of Samsung's flagship phones due to a redesign.

Looking forward to April 21st.
