The Galaxy S8 is shaping up to be perhaps the most important smartphone Samsung has ever developed, and rumours about the details of its specs continue to emerge. According to The Wall Street Journal the home button may be removed from the front of the smartphone and moved to the back, freeing up space for the screen -- something that Samsung's Chinese rival Huawei did on its P9 smartphone last year. The paper reports that the device, which is expected to be launched later this month, will come with a curved screen as standard, a feature Samsung debuted on its Galaxy S6 Edge and which has proved popular with customers. The S8 will also feature a Samsung-developed voice-powered digital assistant which will apparently be called Bixby, in an attempt to rival Apple's Siri and Google Now. Unlike Apple's iPhone 7, the S8 will feature a standard microphone jack, according to reports. Other rumour suggests the new smartphones will come with 3,000mAh and 3,500mAh batteries for its regular and … [Read more...] about Samsung Galaxy S8 specs: Hello curved screen, AI assistant, and goodbye home button?
Samsung galaxy s8 rumours
Samsung's latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8, makes its debut this week. Here's what you need to know about the week's biggest technology launch. 1. How important is the Galaxy S8 to Samsung? It's incredibly important. Samsung is the biggest smartphone maker in the world, selling over 300 million smartphone last year and accounting for one in every five sold. But following the Galaxy Note 7 battery fire debacle it was narrowly overtaken by Apple in the fourth quarter of 2016. Chances are that Samsung will bounce back into the top spot this quarter anyway, but it still needs the Galaxy S8 to be a success, because rival Huawei is coming up quickly. Gartner Research VP Annette Zimmerman told ZDNet that Samsung needs to act fast: "They definitely need a new flagship product to maintain their position. We definitely see one of the strongest contenders here is Huawei." Huawei has been delivering smartphones on a par with those from Samsung and Apple and adding high-profile … [Read more...] about Samsung Galaxy S8: Six big questions

Landon (Posts: 985; Member since: 07 May 2015) If I measure a 6.2" screen on my Note 5, it does fit and leaves .1" on each end...and the Note 5 is similar in dimensions to the S7 edge...so I can believe the 5.5" and 6.2" claims since they're using the same footprint as the S7 and S7 edge but making them bezel-less displays (allegedly). 47.

But as it stands, that's something that is dependent on the people responsible for the source of the information. I'll admit that it is a problem for Google and for their users, but expecting Google to validate the results for an infinite amount of possible queries is a tall order. Google is always updating their algorithms to better their search results, but users have to have some amount of common sense to identify the source of the links provided … [Read more...] about Comments for : Google can’t tell real from fake tech news, promotes fake Galaxy S8 and iPhone 8 news to top results
