Two of the most-anticipated Android smartphones for the year are already available in the market, but the battle between the LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8 is just beginning to intensify. "It acts as little more than a portal, relying entirely on your phone's processing power to generate the experience, doing so via HDMI, making it compatible with most TVs and monitors". Now some rumors claim that Samsung is working on a flip phone that will launch soon.
The Samsung Trade-In Program allows customers purchasing a Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ to trade in an eligible device and receive an instant trade-in credit toward the purchase of their new Galaxy Smartphone.
Samsung was also awarded a patent for what looks like a "Note" smartphone, which would mark the first iteration of the device since the disastrous and short lived Galaxy Note 7. And Samsung is offering a six-month subscription to Netflix and phone accessories to users who purchase the Galaxy S8. There would be a 12 megapixel rear-camera and a five megapixel front facing camera.

Samsung is taking quite the innovative route with these phones.

The available options for the Samsung Galaxy S8 are Orchid Gray, Midnight Black and Artic Silver colors at an off-contract price of $749.99.
