After months of dealing with the fallout from its Galaxy Note 7 - which burst into flames and harmed users in cases reported - Samsung Electronics Co Ltd unveiled the Galaxy S8 this week, aiming to restore consumer confidence and rejuvenate sluggish sales.

The new Galaxy S8, with prices starting at $720, comes in two sizes at 5.8 inches and 6.2 inches, with a bezel-less and curved screen. Samsung will start taking orders in the United States on Thursday, with shipments scheduled for April 21.

The handset offers a wide selection of biometric technologies, including a fingerprint scanner, iris scanner and facial recognition. However, Samsung did not elaborate on the safety of its new handset's batteries.
