Samsung Seeks to Lure Back Buyers With Sleek S8 Smartphone

What the Samsung S8 means for the iPhone 8

They also added that the failure rate has been going up. However, this is not the only digital assistant that comes aboard these two phones.

In the wee hours on Thursday morning, Samsung took to the stage in NY at the Unpacked event to announce the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. Samsung says that software and processor efficiencies will let the new phones offer all-day battery life under normal use.

While features like this haven't been proven, it could appeal to enterprises.

Although the initial date announced for shipping Samsung Galaxy S8 is April 21, but the Canadian buyers will be able to get it early.

Samsung recalled the phones and shipped replacements, but the newer batteries had welding defects and a lack of protective tape in some battery cells. The system has a few parts: one is a standard, Siri-like voice control view, another is a list view of upcoming calendar appointments and reminders.

"The Galaxy S8 provides various levels of biometric authentication, with the highest level of authentication from the iris scanner and fingerprint reader".

Another new trick: the new Samsung phones can essentially become a full-blown desktop computer via a separately sold docking station called the DeX (an idea introduced by Motorola in 2011).

Both devices feature numerous enhancements, including an improved camera, expandable storage options and increased battery capacity and water resistance. Samsung's Project Valley is well on its way to releasing the first prototypes in the third quarter for a thorough performance and safety testing ahead of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 set for a fourth quarter launch. Regardless, images and a video depicting several Galaxy S8 Plus prototypes boasting a dual camera setup can be seen below, and the devices shown in them aren't particularly eye-catching compared to how the official handset looks like.
