Even though biometric security features have been found to be vulnerable to hackers earlier as well, Samsung has pitched facial recognition along with the iris scanner as secure authentication features that help you enhance the protection of your device.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus still have the 3.5mm headphone jack, located on its lower left frame. Just a couple days prior, the company unveiled the new Galaxy S8. But, with Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, Microsoft together with the South Korean smartphone manufacturer have chose to move a notch further to strengthen their partnership and decides to bring a special Microsoft edition of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+. Samsung also know that simply making good looking phones won't do, they have to practical. Hence, we expect a lot of complaints coming up relating to the fingerprint scanner at the back. Now the latest concept photo shared by iDrops, says the next iPhone is identical to the Galaxy S8 concept and design.

So what can Apple do to wow customers post the launch of Samsung Galaxy S8?

"The Galaxy S8 is arguably the most important launch of the last 10 years for Samsung and every aspect will be under the microscope following the Note 7 recall", commented Ben Wood from the CCS tech consultancy.


Well, this basically means Galaxy S8 users will be able to play their favorite tracks through multiple Bluetooth speakers while LG G6 users will have to settle for one other device only. The camera on the rear is 12MP with F1.7 aperture, and the front 8MP snapper comes with smart AF support. One of them is undoubtedly the new virtual assistant, Bixby, who arrives to fill that gap of Siri, Google Assistant or Cortana in other mobiles.

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will be available in stores starting from April 21, 2017.
