After weeks of speculations Samsung has finally unveiled their latest smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and s8+.
One of the most noticeable changes on the smartphone is the removal of a physical home button, new infinty screen and the introduction of a new, virtual assistant dubbed Bixby. Instead of a physical home button all commands will now be executed by tapping on the pressure sensored digatl button on the all new curved stunning screen. Another big edition is Bixby, which is Samsung’s answer to a virtual assistant that is activated by a dedicated side-button allowing apps to be controlled by your voice.
Their are now two versions of the S8 in three colour-ways, the standard Galaxy S8 with a 5.8-inch screen and the S8 Plus featuring a 6.2-inch screen with both models have the same resolution, but are now brighter, supporting high dynamic range video playback.
