Google tells developers to tweak apps for Galaxy S8, 8+ displays
According to research company IHS, shipments of the S7 and S7 Edge will reach about 48 million units this year.
James Yan, a research director at Counterpoint, said the S8 will not give a big boost to the South Korean tech giant’s overall China sales. Bixby slowly adapts to the way the owner operates the Galaxy S8 with curated shortcuts to specific apps you use in certain places at particular times.
The Uncarrier is offering the Samsung Galaxy S8 for a $30 down payment followed by $30 per month for 24 months ($750 retail price) on the T-Mobile Equipment Installment Plan. And Samsung Galaxy S8 definitely ranks ahead of LG G6 in this section. So, the screen is slightly larger but Samsung has bumped up the pixels as well.
On the rear of the phone is a new 12MP Dual Pixel camera which Samsung says offers the best low-light, zoom and anti-blur photos with enhanced image processing.
The iconic home button, however, has been replaced with a pressure-sensitive section embedded under the screen. The virtual button completes an attractive first impression. There’s nothing wrong with it being on the back, but by placing the sensor so high on the phone and so close to the camera sensor, Samsung is just begging for frustrated users – and it knows it.
If you want to get the Bixby working on your phone as well, all you need to do is install the Galaxy S8 launcher and then the Bixby APK file. The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus sport a 12-megapixel main camera and an 8MP front snapper with f/1.7 aperture. Samsung recalled the replacements, too, and scrapped the phone. Whilst the new Samsung DeX is still fairly basic, it is uncertain if the Apple patent will even become a reality. In India, we will get Exynos processor. The claim has to be tested, but PC CPU makers have routinely shrunk the die and managed similar improvements. Alternately, Galaxy S8 or S8+ preorder customers can choose an “Experience Box” priced at $99, which contains a Gear VR with Controller, a 256 GB microSD memory card, and Harman Kardon headphones.
How about that time when you wanted to have someone listen to a song with you?
As before, the new gizmos are resistant to water (up to the IP68 standard), so you can bring them on your runs or use them by the pool.
The new Galaxy S8, with prices starting at $720, comes in two sizes at 5.8 inches and 6.2 inches, with a bezel-less and curved screen.
The Galaxy S7 is already a pretty good shooter.
Well, except if the battery explodes.
But what I’m more bothered about is how Samsung itself seems to have hamstrung its new flagships as a reaction.
