Samsung Galaxy S8 Latest Battery and Design Modifications

Samsung Galaxy S8 Latest Battery and Design Modifications

Samsung's Galaxy S8 isn't even out yet but there's a "feature" that's not as secure as you might think.

Samsung has just unveiled its new Desktop Experience, or DeX, during its Galaxy S8 launch in New York City yesterday.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has finally been revealed to much excitement with its stunning specs and latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS.

The Galaxy S8 is due to be released in Australia on April 28 for $1199 and $1349 for the larger "plus" version. Most AIs, such as those of Microsoft, Google, Amazon or Apple, scour the web and provide information about the subject questioned by the user, Samsung's Bixby adds a new layer of interface onto its devices.

A major new feature of the phone is the artificially intelligent voice assistant dubbed Bixby - effectively the company's answer to the iPhone's Siri.

Nintendo Sold More Zelda Switch Copies Than Switch Consoles
Nintendo has revealed that the Switch sold 906,000 in its 28 days on sale in North America according to the NPD Group . The company also pointed out that March is a "nontraditional month" for a new console release .

This also means that it would be possible to use the face of a user who is sleeping.

If you plan on buying the Galaxy S8, I recommend turning this option off entirely, at least if you want to keep prying eyes from opening your smartphone. Bixby is rumored to come to other devices, but it's hard to imagine how it would be implemented in older devices that do not have the dedicated hardware button found on the new flagship phones. The second surprise though, was that Samsung had teamed up with Microsoft to sell a "Microsoft Edition" Galaxy S8.

Now, you can swiftly unlock your screen using iris scanning and facial recognition technology, a definite step above the ol' fingerprint scanner (which you can still use, if you're the old-school type).

Both the handsets will boast 4GB of RAM and come with 64GB inbuilt storage while also supporting expandable storage via microSD card (up to 256GB).
