Android Central Question

I dropped my unlocked samsung s8 plus to the pool. I used hair dryer and waited for a day. When I turned it on, I see the home screen but after that my screen turned to white and keep turn on and off until battery is dead.
Now, The screen is dead even with the charger plugged in.
Because of all the important information in the phone, i would like to make it works again.

Can i buy another unlocked galaxy s8+ and move the the old internal storage from the broken one to the new one ? Will this solution work?
If so, do we have any video show how to do that?

Do you mean physically move the flash storage module from the phone? It is technically possible, but the fact that you are asking here, and tried to fix a water damaged phone with a hairdryer, tells me that you do not have the necessary skills withh electrical repair to do so.

If you can boot the phone and enter the lockscreen protection, you can pull all your data to a computer or another phone with smart switch.

Welcome to Android Central! There are forensic data recovery specialists available, but they usually charge a fortune to recover data (like into the thousands of dollars). You're pretty much out of luck, sorry!
