Why didn't Samsung upgrade the main camera on the S8?

"The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ usher in a new era of smartphone design and fantastic new services, opening up new ways to experience the world". Using the "Bixby" button, S8 and S8+ owners will be able to navigate Samsung's native apps and features through voice commands. Samsung reportedly can not take chances in including a bigger battery in trepidation that the Galaxy Note 7 exploding scenario might happen again.

On March 29, Samsung unveiled its latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8, finally confirming or debunking rumors about the handset.

Adverts for the Galaxy S8 launch have been taking up prime-time slots on television for the past few weeks.

The biggest design change evident in the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus is something Samsung calls the "Infinity Display" that creates a curved-edge and almost bezel-free screen. That update allows the phone to stream audio to two Bluetooth headsets or speakers simultaneously, while still allowing the user to independently control each device. But that might be a dubious hope this close to the device's launch on April 21, however.

As there will be no home screen button at the bottom of the screen, it is rumoured the fingerprint sensor will be embedded into the screen or at the back of the device. 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.

The smartphones offer biometric authentication options including a fingerprint scanner and iris scanner, as well as IP68 water and dust resistance, MicroSD support up to 256GB, Always-on display, and fast and wireless charging capabilities.

Bixby AI assistant was unveiled in NY on Wednesday.

You can get your hands on this phone today, as it is available to pre-order.
