Video Shows Galaxy S8 Facial Recognition Tricked By A Photo

The almost bezel-less Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus phones are already available for preorder through Best Buy and all four major US carriers in the US, The Verge said.

Samsung has officially unveiled the latest addition to Galaxy premium range, the Galaxy S8 at its Unpacked 2017 event in NY.

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. That includes the Microsoft Office suite of apps, like Word, Excel, OneDrive, OneNote, Skype, Groove Music, MSN News, Outlook, Bing, and more.

All aboard the Samsung Galaxy S8 train! The company has confirmed it will offer the newly revealed Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus phones in those stores, with pre-orders to begin today.

The crowning feature of the new handsets is what Samsung calls an "infinity display" - an elegant glass screen that covers the entire front of the phone and rounds nicely around its edges.

Bixby: Samsung's virtaul assistant is here, as if Google Assistant wasn't enough. Naturally, this is an alarming revelation, forcing users to resort to either using their fingerprint readers or iris scanners when they get their hands on the phone. A highly sophisticated assistant that can perform many tasks for you and will even be able to learn from you, to understand you better.

Bixby, Samsung's new artificial intelligence (AI) assistant already works on most of the company's smartphones running Nougat, users at XDA Developers Forums are claiming.

As incredible as the Galaxy S8 series sound, it appears that some folks aren't buying it - literally.

According to the Verge, the S8 is "a thing of beauty to look at" with its 5.8-inch screen and "barely-there bezel", which means its home button is now entirely virtual.
