It will come as little surprise that the most anticipated smartphone of the year, the Samsung Galaxy S8, won’t be cheap.
We are expecting two versions of the device to appear at retailers, both of which will have dual-curved, edge-to-edge displays.
The Galaxy S8 is expected to follow the same vein as the as its predecessor the Galaxy S7 in terms of its footprint but it will have a 5.8 inch Quad HD display and a 3,250mAh.
The S8 Plus is expected to have a larger 6.2 inch QHD AMOLED display and an impressive 3,750mAh battery.
As we have reported previously, the S8 and S8 Plus are expected to ditch the physical Home Button as well as having a number of other technological advances.
Of course, all this new technology will come at a price with the device expected to retail in the region of THB45,000 for the top of the range models – or so a Chinese tipster has revealed although Evan Blass, a prolific leaker did suggest that this figure was over the top.

The same Chinese tipster who uses the pseudonym @mmddj_china claims that a version will be released purely for the South Korean market. This will have 6GB and 128GB of internal storage.
It is believed that both the Samsung S8 and the S8 Plus that will be available on more general sale will have a USB-C port for charging and syncing as well as including a 3.5mm headphone port.
The device is also expected to follow the iPhone 7 Plus by including a dual-camera setup. Both devices will be powered by the impressive Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor.
The phones are now expected to be launched on 29 March and appear on general sale from around 21 April around the world although we are expecting a few sneak previews to appear in the next most of so.
