Samsung reportedly planning rugged Galaxy S8 for AT&T

64GB versions of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will retail for 27,900 and 30,900 baht, respectively.

In just few weeks of the Galaxy S8 lineup pre-orders going live in the US and South Korea, Samsung witnessed a "double digit growth" (at least 10 percent) over Galaxy S7's past year.

We should expect to start seeing social media posts from proud owners of the Galaxy S8 in just a couple of days from now. According to the report, the South Korean tech giant is now working on the rugged variant of the Galaxy S8, which is codenamed "Cruiser" and has the model number SM-G892A. The Note 7 debacle previous year certainly was a bad situation to be in, making the tech giant skip the Mobile World Congress and delay the Galaxy S8 launch.

To recall, the Samsung Galaxy S8 features a 1.9GHz octa-core Samsung Exynos 8895 processor paired with 4GB of RAM. Aces which, if Apple plays its cards strategically, could allow the iPhone 8 to dominate the Galaxy S8 completely.

Two versions of the Galaxy S8, code-named Dream internally, were launched at a media event in NY on March 29, with 6.2-inch (15.75 cm) and 5.8-inch curved screens - the largest to date for Samsung's premium smartphones. The Samsung Galaxy X features of an intuitive design (leaked through a patent) with two OLED screens connected with a hinge in the middle, thus making the device bendable up to 180 degrees.

Trump's 'truly great' pick for Supreme Court sworn in
Gorsuch's swearing in comes after a fierce confirmation battle, waged largely along party lines, that deeply divided the Senate. For his part, Gorsuch said: " I am humbled by the trust placed in me today. "We are here to celebrate history", Trump said.

The Galaxy S8 and S8+ also feature some of the most advanced types of security features.

As XDA Developers reports, the closed loophole comes as part of a pre-release update patch from Samsung.

Close to one million pre-orders for a device of such a price and from the company with such a past triggers the thought, what makes customers want Samsung so badly despite the flaws? The same edgeless and thin-bezel design is expected to repeat itself as well.

T-Mobile appears to have a thing about not sticking to the release dates announced by manufacturers for their new smartphones.
