More information is starting to leak out about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ devices, not the least of which is that the devices will feature a new camera, and different internal specs for their respective sizes. While this isn’t new for those in the Apple world (the iPhone 8 and 8+ have different camera modules and features) it would be a first for the Android phone maker Samsung, and probably isn’t a great trend in general.
For those who weren’t sold on the existing style or model of the Galaxy S8, Samsung has another option for you. Their more ruggedized version of the Galaxy S8, called the Active series, should be available to pre-order starting tomorrow and available in AT&T stores starting Friday, August 11th. It’s got the same 5.8″ display but shoved into a mil-spec water and drop resistant shell. It also does not have the dual curved display that the normal Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus sport so those who didn’t care for that design element should check it out.
Best Buy, the US big box retailer known primarily for its blue-and-yellow logo, will reportedly have an exclusive “coral blue” color of Samsung’s popular Galaxy S8 & S8 Plus smartphones available starting tomorrow (July 13, 2017) that will work on Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint. Best Buy has had color exclusive mobile devices in the past, many of them in a blue or blue-ish color (but I’m sure that’s just a coincidence)

Now that our podcast review of the OnePlus 5 phone is live, I thought it might be helpful also to those who are considering picking up the device to have some more info on the camera, one of the biggest concerns we had about the device. Below you will find some sample photos taken in identical situations with both the OnePlus 5 and our test camera, the Galaxy S8 Plus. Judge for yourself which picture(s) you think are best.
It’s time! The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus devices that were pre-ordered have been shipped, and we are in the process of getting all of the Galaxy goodness brought to you soon. We will be testing both sizes of the Galaxy devices, and will have reviews and more info coming at you shortly. In the meantime, please enjoy a quick recap of the specs of the devices and the picture gallery below.
