Samsung Galaxy S8 Easily Hacked

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.

Along with the new S8, Samsung unveiled upgrades to several of its major technogies.

Now, there is a possibility that the new facial recognition is in the initial phase and Samsung might release a more stable version of the same in the retail unit. Will you choose the fingerprint scanner, which we know from the S7 series, or will you go for the iris scanner or use face detection?

Others, however, said the flagships may be unattractive to some as both of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus have double-edged Super AMOLED screens. The battery was not the only issues with the iPhone 6s with other also reporting about app crashes and more. There is also Samsung Pass where you can register your login IDs and passwords for different websites, and then verify your identity using the biometric data to access those websites.

Siri has a new rival; the Galaxy S8 comes with Bixby, Samsung's new AI, which understands voice, text or touch. Both the S8 and S8 Plus sport an edge-to-edge Quad HD AMOLED display.

And you can launch Bixby via its own dedicated button on the left side below the volume rocker, or just by simply saying "Bixby". This year could be an ever closer fight because, while Samsung has retained the same 12MP hardware for the S8, LG has taken it up a notch with dual 13MP camera sensors on the rear instead of the mismatched hardware on the LG G5.

Samsung's latest flagship smartphones run Android Nougat right out of the box. According to a live stream broadcasted by the folks at Marcianotech (via Redmond Pie), they actually managed to bypass the Galaxy S8's facial unlocking system using a photo that they took of themselves.

The previously announced Gear VR headset upgrade, which now includes a hand-held controller, was announced to be available in April. Redmond Pie mentioned that the phone and software in the video could still be in demo mode so there a huge chance Samsung will still be able to fix this issue before the Galaxy S8 drops in stores. There's not only wireless charging, but fast wireless charging.
