The Samsung Galaxy S8 was released in March 2017 alongside its bigger brother, the Galaxy S8 Plus. Together, these were Samsung’s flagship phones for 2017. Featuring an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 4GB of RAM, the Galaxy S8 was blazing fast when it was launched, and it still holds its own several years later.
