Samsung Galaxy S8 Microsoft Edition comes with extra apps

Samsung Galaxy S8 Microsoft Edition comes with extra apps

Moreover, Samsung is seriously applying what it has learned from the Note 7 fiasco by following a steady release schedule starting with the first prototypes of the Samsung Galaxy X to be thoroughly tested by major partners including wireless carriers. Called Bixby, Samsung's service can be activated via the phone's side button. In the U.S., Samsung will start taking orders Thursday, with shipments scheduled for April 21. But there is no increase in battery capacity, providing the battery more breathing room.

Samsung has been working on a foldable phone that turns into a tablet for years, but it was only in May 2016 that the Samsung Galaxy then codenamed "Project Valley" was reported to be joining the flagship phones for 2017. The S8 will get an iris scanner to let people unlock the phone by looking at it; the feature was new in the ditched Note 7 phone.

While Samsung S8 has a similar feature regarding face unlocking, its facial recognition software can be hacked with just an image.

Trump Hosts Kid Rock, Ted Nugent, Sarah Palin At White House Dinner
Kid Rock was among a group of high-profile guests invited for dinner at the White House on Wednesday night (April 19). Two Michigan rockers joined Sarah Palin for dinner this week at the White House - with President Donald Trump.

LG also unveiled a 30-second advertisement that will be aired worldwide that highlights the key features of the phone, ranging from its excellent screen resolution, camera arrangement and water- and dust-resistant packaging. Both S8 models are taller than their predecessors, but widths are roughly the same to preserve one-handed use.

However, turns out that the facial recognition system might not be as secure as you thought and while it definitely sounds that even the most proficient of hackers can not check what sort of data you have stored behind the security wall, there is actually a very simple way to bypass the facial recognition feature. This comes in the form of Microsoft Edition variants of the two phones, where the two assistants already on board are getting a third partner, which makes it a whole three digital assistants on the same phone - right out of the box! The DeX Station converts your phone into a giant computer screen. Existing owners can buy just the controller for about $40.
