What the Samsung S8 means for the iPhone 8

Today we're going to take a closer look of what's expected of iPhone 8 and see if it will be able take on Samsung's Galaxy S8.

Samsung has officially unveiled the latest addition to Galaxy premium range, the Galaxy S8 at its Unpacked 2017 event in NY.

Samsung's latest financial report revealed the Seoul-based tech giant is looking to build an entire ecosystem around Bixby, specifically stating the digital assistant will eventually be making its way to more smartphones and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

The "Microsoft Edition" Samsung Galaxy S8 comes equipped with Microsoft's apps and services like Office, OneDrive, Outlook and Cortana.

The device's key feature is the display.

Samsung Electronics recently unveiled its flagship handsets; Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. Samsung has listened to its happy S7 Edge users since a year ago and made a decision to add this handsome hardware feature to the S8 as well. Bixby, which can be activated via the side button, can also activate Bixby Home, a new app that feels like Google Now and includes information like email notifications, events, step tracker, and weather status. Naturally, this is an alarming revelation, forcing users to resort to either using their fingerprint readers or iris scanners when they get their hands on the phone.

It's not, as you'd expect, a Galaxy S8 with Windows running on the handset.

In the U.S. the phones are running on Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processors while in other countries it will sport Samsung's own Exynos octa-core chip. It is clear that the future owners of the Galaxy S8 will not be disappointed with this camera.

Yes, you 100 percent can do that, but how many people will? The company will use a stacked logic board design to support the bigger battery, allowing the phone to give consumers the same battery life enjoyed with the 5.5 inch iPhone in a handset as small as 4.7 inches.
