While it's hard to say how common this issue is, it's something to watch out for if you're planning on buying a Galaxy S8 this week.

Samsung Electronics Co Ltd that unveiled its Galaxy S8 flagship smartphone last month, is all set to bring it in India on Wednesday. The company is also launching the smartphones today in India and the pre-orders will be open starting today.

The order also calls for more federal construction projects to use American-made products. That includes 10,000 in Washington state, according to the Department of Commerce.

Having said this, it is worth recalling that these two smartphones are definitely of great importance for the company, especially after its much expected Galaxy Note 7 failed miserably following the battery incident.

Both the flagships feature a QHD AMOLED display measuring 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch, which Samsung calls the "Infinity Display" with the front and rear sides protected by Gorilla Glass 5. The smartphones also come with IP68 certification for water and dust resistance. There are no physical navigation keys on the bottom this time, and the fingerprint sensor is moved to the back.

At first, Samsung said that it can be compatible with other digital voice assistants like Google Assistant or Amazon's Alexa. There is also a new facial recognition application that lets users unlock their phones by looking at them.

The rest of the specifications and the features of the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro iteration with the 128 GB storage space remain unchanged. Despite having a attractive looking display, some global users are complaining about the freakish 18:5:9 aspect ratio. The dual-cameras will include 3x optical zoom, 12MP wide-angle CIS supporting dual photodiode (2PD), 13MP telephoto CIS, dual 6P lenses and dual OIS. The Samsung Galaxy S8 measures 148.9 x 68.1 x 8.0 mm and weighs 155g, while the Galaxy S8+ measures 159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1 mm and 173g. According to the website, Bixby 'can talk, see, read, recommend the user on actions.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 users from South Korea have already started to point out first major issue with the smartphone.

It also has fast battery-charging support, which means that when it runs out of juice, which will take a while before happening, users will not have to wait that long to charge it up to full battery again.
