Samsung launches Galaxy S8 and dreams of recovery from Note 7

Both phones will be available for purchase beginning April 21 at brick-and-mortar US Microsoft Store locations.

Traditionally, the Korean tech giant unveils a new Galaxy Note phablet during IFA trade show in Berlin. However, along with the Samsung Galaxy S8, the LG's latest G6 flagship smartphone also retain the port.

Are you looking forward to buy Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus Microsoft Edition?

The two flagships come bundled with several such Microsoft apps like - OneDrive, OneNote, Skype and a few more. "We recommend that you design your app to support aspect ratios of 2.1 or higher". The S8 is now available for pre-order at $1,035, and the S8 Plus at $1,115.

As it is, Bixby launches with a visual search feature, Bixby Home screen to the right of the device's main home screen and 10 native Samsung apps, with third-party integrations coming soon.

Now, you can swiftly unlock your screen using iris scanning and facial recognition technology, a definite step above the ol' fingerprint scanner (which you can still use, if you're the old-school type). However, HP sells the Elite x3 and Desk Dock as a bundle for $799, while the Galaxy S8 handsets - priced from $749 - and DeX Station will be sold separately.

As wonderful as the Galaxy S8 series sound, it appears that some folks aren't buying it - literally.

Bixby, Samsung's new artificial intelligence (AI) assistant already works on most of the company's smartphones running Nougat, users at XDA Developers Forums are claiming. A Microsoft spokesperson further adds, "A Microsoft customisation is applied to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Microsoft Edition when the devices are unboxed and connected to Wi-Fi". Unless you don't own a computer, there aren't many compelling reasons to give the accessory a shot.
