Samsung Galaxy S8: Specs, Price And Everything You Need to Know

And from my point of view it looks like a pretty sweet smartphone. The Galaxy S8 largely sticks with what worked last time around, hardware-wise, with another 12-megapixel main camera with f/1.7 aperture. Well that was true. These screens measure 5.8 inches and 6.2 inches respectively. The AMOLED "Infinity Displays" have a 18.5:9 aspect ratio and it covers most of the smartphones surface.

While Samsung's brand new Bixby voice assistant launches through a specific button on its left-hand side, Google Assistant is the voice AI that launches when you hold down the home button, arguably an easier launching method. Literally. Well, aside from maybe the fingerprint scanner being moved to the back. However it will only read your fingerprint and you won't have to press it. They have a premium metal design, water-resistance, a microSD slot and one of the best cameras in any smartphone.

Bixby is an intelligent interface that will help users get more out of their phone.

That said, I got used to it extremely fast and all the Edge features can be disabled too.

The Galaxy S8, S8 Plus Microsoft Editions are available for preorder now and will be available for purchase at U. S. Microsoft retail stores beginning April 21, the same day as the release of the smartphones.

Now, a report in Android Central reveals that Samsung is well aware of this self-inflicted design problem and has chose to build in a popup warning message reminding you to clean the lens. With that in mind, the Samsung may finally commercialize a dual camera setup with the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 that's expected to hit the market in the second half of the year, presumably in late summer. For now, we'll have to give Samsung the benefit of the doubt. This display will reduce power consumption and offer better brightness.For those who don't know about polarizer, it is an optical filter placed above the screen that lets certain light waves pass and blocks others.
