It said last week it expects its operating profit in the first quarter was 9.9 trillion won (US$8.8 billion), up 48 percent from 6.7 trillion won in the same period past year, helped largely by growth in its components business.

Samsung unveiled the powerful phone with the fastest processor in Qualcomm Snapdragon Series on March 29.

The S8 goes on sale on April 21 in Korea, the U.S. and the UK.

But either way, there is much anticipation to have the Samsung Galaxy S8 in consumers' hands, especially given the recent "explosive" hullabaloo over the Galaxy Note 7.

The rear camera on the 2017 Galaxy flagships has a 12-megapixel sensor with Dual Pixel technology while the front houses an 8-megapixel sensor with Smart autofocus, a first for any smartphone.

The company had previously announced that the S8 would come shipped with its new voice assistant, Bixby. The Galaxy S8 features a 3,000mAh battery, while the Galaxy S8+ is fuelled by a 3,500mAh battery.

When Samsung launched the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones, the device received favorable reviews.

Samsung said Thursday that preorders for its new S8 phone had surpassed the preorders for its prior model, the S7. Samsung reveals that pre-orders for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ have surpassed all past records in home country as more than 550,000 units of the phones have been reportedly booked in just two days. The S8 is already real, but we don't have actual details on the next iPhone. The curved screen in the S8 and S8 Plus - made of flexible organic light-emitting diodes - has lower production yields, presumably at around 60 percent, compared to those screens based on rigid OLED or the liquid crystal display. Further reports on Samsung's acquiring the "Galaxy X" trademark has also been confirmed that brings up the possibility for the device to launch in the future. As for users in the United States, they would have to wait a little while longer as "Bixby Voice will be available on the Galaxy S8 in the USA later this Spring".
