Apple took 31.3 percent of the US smartphone market, compared to the 28.9 percent share occupied by the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge.

Samsung says their new S8 smartphone will pack powerful performance and connectivity when it arrives in shops later this month. For both the phones you can expand the storage to 256GB with an external SD card.

Meanwhile, Samsung apparently wants to highlight that the Galaxy S8+ offers more room for multitasking now that the company has launched its trademarked innovation, the Infinity Display. Thankfully, the Galaxy S8 has some alternative methods for getting into your phone, like a fingerprint sensor and iris scanner along with your standard on-screen methods. And when that happens, Samsung Galaxy S8 is ready to tap into that.

We won't know for sure how well the Galaxy S8's facial recognition works until we've got our hands on one. And while, in theory, it should work on any Samsung Nougat phone, it has been tested more on a Galaxy S7. A new video surfaced online showing the Galaxy S8 security compromised with a simple trick - a photo of the user.

Ars Technica reached out to Samsung after the video was released and you can see an official statement from Samsung below. Perhaps some of you have already planned on how to try and hack the system but someone managed to unlock a phone using a photo of himself. The difference is only marginal between the two phones, but it does still give an edge to the Samsung chip over the Qualcomm chip.

Galaxy S8 Plus is not the upgrade you would expect over the Galaxy S7 Edge, but it will surely attract the glances of other phone enthusiasts. Instead, there is a pressure-sensitive home button embedded underneath the display. At the same time, since facial recognition is a matter of software rather than hardware, Samsung could also enhance its proficiency through over-the-air updates. As the Bixby ecosystem grows, it will connect across devices, apps and services as a ubiquitous interface, and open up new experiences and scenarios with the hope of simplifying life.
