Samsung’s mobile head hinted that the company’s rumored foldable Galaxy device “is not far away”. And when they show it to the world, the firm will be counting on “the delight of customers and the astonishment of the competition”.
Galaxy S, Samsung’s flagship smartphone series, turns 10 this year and the rumor-mill is predicting a third entry-level model alongside the standard Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 upgrades, plus some improved camera systems on the flagship device.
German hackers have posted a proof-of concept video demonstrating how easy it is to fool Galaxy S8’s iris scanner into unlocking the phone using an infrared photo of the owner’s eye and a contact lens.
Ahead of the upcoming April 21 Galaxy S8 launch in the United States, Canada and Europe, Samsung has already covered Times Square with advertising for its new flagship phones. Today, the South Korean conglomerate published a pair of official Galaxy S8 television commercials on its YouTube channel.
Titled “The New Normal” and “Breaking Out”, the videos showcase the key features of the handsets, like their curved AMOLED screen, branded as Infinity Display, and a stunning industrial design with a nearly full-screen face and no chin at the bottom.
Samsung’s top-of-the-line Galaxy handsets are typically outfitted with some of the best-performing batteries. That said, you could imagine our surprise when we learned that the battery in Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S8+ performed worse than the cell powering Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus, as per a new test carried out by review website PhoneArena.
