Samsung, along with the whole world, is getting ready for the release of the Samsung Galaxy S8.

Furthermore, pictures of a Samsung Galaxy S8 glossy black variant have also been leaked on Weibo showing the device from all angles.

Further insights suggested that Samsung will also be adding up this pressure sensitivity feature for its Galaxy Note 8 at the last phase of this year only.

After all the issues with the Galaxy Note 7, batteries are a sensitive subject for Samsung.

The Galaxy S8 to be unveiled later this month will blend fingerprint, iris and facial detection to verify users accessing mobile services including Samsung Pay, the people said. Reportedly, Galaxy S8 phone will come with Samsung's own voice-based Siri-like digital assistant.

The translation of the Samsung Italy page that mentions Bixby suggests that the digital assistant will coexist with S Voice, the voice assistant that is now available in Samsung's Galaxy smartphones. The South Korean tech giant has now been hinted to leave behind its conventional physical home button and adopt a newly evolved virtual version of the same in Galaxy S8.

What else should we expect from the Galaxy S8 then? The phone has been taken through all types of processor and graphics-intensive tests - same tests that the likes of Apple iPhone 7 Plus and OnePlus 3T have also passed - and the results are impressive to say. Samsung is expected to keep the rear camera at 12MP.

Samsung might soon introduce the Galaxy C7 Pro in India.

Features might include an iris scanner, a 12MP for main camera and 8MP for the front camera, wireless charging, and a microSD slot.

Samsung has prepared some other features to differentiate its most expensive phone in a field now crowded with up-and-coming rivals. On the front, the tablet offers a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.2 aperture and auto-focus for video calling and selfies.
