Updated: added details regarding sprint

Samsung's new Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones will cost $750 and $850, respectively. The phones share almost all features other than size and both ship with 64 GB of internal storage. All carriers are bundling in the new Gear VR with controller at no added cost ($129 value), and will upgrade the bundle to include a 256 GB memory card and Harmon Kardon headphones for $99. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be available for preorder starting March 30 and should reach stores April 21.

The Galaxy S8 and S8+ have 5.8- and 6.2-inch screens, respectively, Snapdragon 835 processors, 12-megapixel cameras, and Samsung's Bixby voice interface.

Non-Removable Battery

You would think with Samsung's gigantic, costly fiasco with their last phone and their non-removable battery they would make this new phone have a removable battery. Had their last phone had that ability, they could have just sent out replacement batteries for the bad ones instead of replacing the whole phone. I guess they didn't learn. You can't fix stupid.
Hard to have an IP68 certification water resistance rating with a removable battery. I'd take IP68 over it.

...Sprint...are you kidding me right now? One of the largest phone unveilings of the year, and you're MIA????
Hope this gets updated quickly.
Sprint normally waits for all the other carriers to announce their promos, so we can beat them at the punch. I bet you Sprint will have the best promo for these phones, wether it be a BOGO, accessory deals or the monthly amount. Smart!
