Microsoft will start reselling Samsung's Android smartphones

The Galaxy S8 Microsoft Edition still runs Android paired with Touch Wiz, so what's the difference? "It's bigger brother goes one step further and offers a 6.2" display. This is 100mAh less than the S7 edge has.

The DeX Station is a small puck-shaped dock that plugs into an external monitor and essentially gives Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus users a desktop experience. For Samsung, the Note 7 issue was a major blow to its success previous year and it needed to recover from it badly.

LG, however, did not promote the program, as the technology is not a unique feature of the G6 smartphone.

Both latest models have displays that curve round the phones' sides. Separate to the video, The Korea Herald cited unnamed "industry sources" who said that the Galaxy S8's facial recognition system was insufficient to secure the devices. This means that Samsung had to take a second look at the new device and implement a few design tweaks. Let us know in a comment below. The highly anticipated flagship duo comes equipped with the same camera hardware as their predecessors, sporting a 12-megapixel "Dual Pixel" sensor that was often announced as the best before the Google Pixel. A highly sophisticated assistant that can perform many tasks for you and will even be able to learn from you, to understand you better. Combine this with the handset's price of $750 for the Galaxy S8 and $850 for the Galaxy S8+ and you would be spending between $900-$1,000 in total.

Samsung is scheduled to hit stores on 21 April in the United States, Canada and Korea.

Indeed, in a statement given to ArsTechnica, Samsung explained that facial recognition can not be used to authenticate mobile payments or to access the device's Secure Folder, both of which require the use of the phone's other biometric features.
