Soon prototypes with a dual screen OLED foldable — Samsung Galaxy X

Soon prototypes with a dual screen OLED foldable — Samsung Galaxy X

When the the new flagship smartphones went up for pre-order in the US and South Korea last week, Samsung revealed that the lineup is proving more popular than last year's Galaxy S7.

Samsung customers who pick up the new phones won't be completely without a bot for barking orders.

The Samsung Galaxy S series smartphones have been hailed for their performance over the years. There were talks that Samsung will take a while to get back from the slip, but now Samsung has proved back that it's the giant of Android. There is no other information regarding the price, pre-order and availability of the mobile. Samsung is also reportedly working on the Galaxy S9.

According to Trusted Reviews, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will consist of a 5.8-inch display together with a dense 1440 x 2960 pixel resolution.

SATURDAY NIGHT: Partly to mostly cloudy skies will be around for Saturday night, with a low temperature of 60 degrees. Good morning! Storms rumbled from west to east overnight and have for the most part fizzled out this morning.

And new reports have claimed that the company is set to reveal a number of devices featuring multiple screens. And, guess the answer lies in the specifications that Samsung improves with each of its flagship devices.

Aside from this, Samsung has been looking to design elements like the nearly edge-to-edge display and its AI assistant Bixby to get customers excited about the Galaxy S8, rather than overly emphasising performance or battery life.

Bixby's additional features enable the smart assistant to show users relevant apps and content based on their habits and what they're doing. While it will have Vision, Home, and Reminders at launch, Voice won't be coming until later in Spring, and that's for U.S. owners only. And another interesting thing which is to be seen is that if the active variant of the device will come with the separate Bixby button or not. But with an IP68 rating already on board the biggest draw here will likely be added impact resistance if they can avoid beating the S8 with the ugly stick too much. There are deep doubts on what will iPhone possess that Samsung doesn't.

"The news about the S8 is very positive at this point, though we have to see how numerous pre-orders translate into sales", said Kiranjeet Kaur, research manager for client devices at IDC Asia/Pacific.
