Galaxy S8 will beat S7 sales record, says Samsung's DJ Koh

Bixby is seen as one of the key features of the Galaxy S8 that was unveiled earlier in the week in NY and London.

Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro the first smartphone from Samsung having 6 gigabytes of Ram, so it's quite awesome to see a phone such like C9 Pro which is powered by 6 gigabytes of Ram. For those wondering, FHD+ has a resolution of 2220 x 1080, but the good news is that as we have seen in an earlier leaked photo, Samsung has made it so that resolution on the phone can be changed and adjusted according to the user's needs. It is also the first time for the Galaxy S models to ditch the Samsung logo on the upper front panel. That being said, we're more inclined to use the facial recognition or even the more secured iris scanner to unlock the smartphone.

The fingerprint scanner is now placed on the back of the device, right next to the main dual-pixel camera sensor, and it's a bit too high up for our index finger. Samsung can blame faulty batteries for the Galaxy Note 7 fires all it wants, but the fact that it rushed to beat the iPhone 7 to market in 2016 is definitely one factor that contributed to the phablet's demise.

Tech fans can also purchase the new Gear VR controller on its own for $39.

Samsung unveiled Galaxy S8 last Wednesday at the New York's Lincoln Center.

Powerful Performance: Packing powerful performance and connectivity, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ feature the industry's first 10 nm chip, enabling heightened speed and efficiency.

Samsung product specialists at the launch declined to talk about the multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) antenna array technicalities on the new phones, saying that would be down to USA carriers to decide. "I think S8 will maintain or slightly outsell S7 because of the improved AI software feature, better display, and the enhanced selfie camera", she said.

"Samsung has produced the device that it needs to cement its recovery but now it comes down to consumers, a number of whom have already switched to iOS".
