In the U.S., Samsung will start taking orders Thursday, with shipments scheduled for April 21. The phone carries the same liquid cooling technology as the S7 with high hopes that disaster won't strike once again with the batteries. Possible freebies include a Bluetooth speaker or a DeX, which allows users to utilize the Galaxy S8 smartphone like a full computer by connecting it to a PC.
