Samsung Galaxy S8 & S8+: Bluetooth 5 Confirmed!

According to a Chinese leakster who has provided accurate information in the past with regard to upcoming Samsung releases, the first foldable smartphone from the company is coming sooner than expected. And from my point of view it looks like a pretty sweet smartphone. After all, Bixby is one of the USPs of the Galaxy S8. Well that was true. The LG G6 launched with a 18:9 aspect screen, while the G8 has an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Of course there is no space left for a home button, so Samsung placed a virtual home button.

A fingerprint scanner is located on the back portion of the device, next to the camera. Both phones come with better and improved Iris scanner. Also S8 and S8+ are water and dust-resistant. But as per its specifications, the phone will cost more than $500.

The iPhone does not have wireless charging. Let's hope that this battery will explode (fingers crossed).

These aren't exactly drastic differences with the Samsung Galaxy S8 duo but there is one thing that the LG lacks which gives the Samsung device a worthy edge. These are bezel-less, full-frontal, edge-to-edge devices featuring an 8MP selfie-snapper and a dual 12MP rear-facing camera.

Before we give Samsung criticism for what appears to be a trivial oversight, we should mention the phones at the Unpacked event may have been running pre-production software, and there is a chance an update fixes any issues before launch. Microsoft is not commenting on when or whether the company will expand availability of the Microsoft Edition Samsung phones beyond USA retail stores only, the spokesperson said.

In a new video originally published on YouTube on April 1, a man is seen to open the phone with a picture of himself on another phone, making the new security feature flawed by design and more of a gimmick. Bixby will be able to support every task of the application with use of the conventional interface. You can also keep your private content and apps secure by hiding Secure Folder when the device is unlocked.
