Today is the launch day for the new Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ for those who live in the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, and Korea. For Canadians specifically, carriers such as Telus are offering up Samsung’s latest offering starting at $250 on a two-year term for the Samsung Galaxy S8, while the Samsung Galaxy S8+ is available at $320 on a two-year term.

Key features of the new flagship Samsung phone include:

  • See the Whole Picture – Infinity Display lets you see more on Samsung’s largest smartphone screen yet.
  • Unlock Your Potential – Protect your phone by using Iris Scan to unlock your device and IP68 water and dust resistance will keep your phone feeling like new.
  • Enhanced Audio Experience – Play Ultra High Quality (UHQ) audio with Samsung’s new AKG-tuned earphones.
  • Leave it to Bixby – Bixby Vision uses the native camera so you can search and buy products, discover nearby attractions and more.

Reviews are starting to trickle in and so far so good for Samsung who are trying to recover from the Note 7 gong show. There’s even a video of it being tested by YouTube star Karl Conrad for how waterproof it is in beer:

One issue has popped up though. People have complained about a red tint on the screen that the company has now committed to fix.
