Samsung Galaxy S8 Features Shown Off On Video

The much-anticipated unveiling comes after the news of the exploding Galaxy Note 7's refurbished resale and recycling.

Samsung has now released a number of videos which show off some of the new features on the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, you can see some of these videos below. "Both the devices are our testament to regaining your trust by redefining what's possible in safety and marks a new milestone in Samsung's smartphone legacy", said DJ Koh, President of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung. However, for those of you who are still having second thoughts about getting one for yourself, here are some of the reasons that will definitely change your mind about the Samsung Galaxy S8. On 29th March, the Samsung company gave its first look at what its vision for the future of smartphones will be. Both models have screens that curve around the edges and get rid of the physical home button.

Well, a report from Samsung's home country stated, citing industry sources, that "Galaxy S8 will likely have the Google Assistant program, which has similar features to Bixby". The company mentions that these specifications might vary depending on the market. Because of this, more developers are switching to virtual reality to add more user experience to mobile games and apps.

Along with the Galaxy S8, Samsung also announced its very own personal digital assistant, Bixby. The camera's user interface has been updated to facilitate single-hand operation. The S8 is a glorious-looking device and photos don't really do it justice.

The stars of the show are, of course, iris scanning and facial recognition. While the S8 is backed by a 3000mAh battery unit, the S8+ gets a 3500mAh battery pack - charged via USB type C. But if the new Korean smartphone has enough to shade the iPhone 7 with certain features, its camera is not necessarily an asset.

Bluetooth 5 promises a more seamless connection between devices and one that also consumes less energy. Two colours will hit Britain, "Midnight Black" and "Orchid Grey", and Samsung is still decided whether to launch a third colour, "Arctic Silver". But there is no increase in battery capacity, providing the battery more breathing room.
