While the incoming update for the Galaxy S5 comes with build number G900PVPU3CPEI, the software for the Galaxy A7 (2015) happens to have firmware version A700FXXU2BQB1.

With the launch of Galaxy S8 almost upon us, reports are still coming through of some exciting new features we might be able to expect from Samsung's forthcoming flagship.

Both handsets are thought to have curved-edge screens, with no home button, and a new AI assistant which is likely to be called Bixby. Specifically, it will reportedly "blend fingerprint, iris and facial detection to verify users". Customers interested in the tablet can pre-order it starting tomorrow from Amazon, Best Buy and Samsung's online store.

We're quite certain that Samsung will have no curve balls left for the Galaxy S8 when it is released on March 29.

Rumors suggest that the Galaxy S8 would come without the home button.

Features might include an iris scanner, a 12MP for main camera and 8MP for the front camera, wireless charging, and a microSD slot.

The Korean company needs to make a splash after killing off the fire-prone Note 7, which cost it more than $6 billion and the global lead in smartphones. The Galaxy S8 is expected to be powered by a 3,000mAh battery, while the S8+ would get an enlarged 3,500mAh battery. This piece of tech would be slightly tweaked to go up to a 1000 Fps for the Galaxy S8 twins, thereby making it the only device with a rear camera that can capture in the slowest motion.

Speaking of photos, the Samsung Galaxy Book, according to Wired report, has AMOLED display with 2160x1440 resolution and support HDR video playback. The decision has prompted a backlash among fans, many of whom say the position will force them to pick up the handset every time they want to unlock it and smudge the camera lens accidentally. According to the company, a special event dedicated to the Galaxy S8 will be held in NYC in late March.
