Now, we all know AI and voice assistants are the future. Google Assistant has just made its way to most Android devices out there, the Huawei Mate 9 just got its Amazon Alexa update, and Samsung is debuting its own virtual assistant on the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus called Bixby. Samsung actually announced Bixby over a week ago, claiming that the new assistant would stand out from competing AI-based assistants through three main factors – completeness, context awareness, and cognitive tolerance.

Galaxy S8 Camera

Samsung Galaxy S flagship smartphones always have a better camera and Galaxy S8 is expected to have a better camera than Galaxy S7, it is not announced yet which camera will be mounted on Galaxy S8, but, it is expected that it will have a 16MP front camera with slow motion recording as well.

hat’s thanks to the ‘Dual Pixel’ technology built into the camera. Every pixel on the Galaxy S7’s image sensor has two photodiodes instead of one. One of the biggest advantages of this increased pixel count is the faster focus. When you’re taking a photo with an iPhone, between 5% and 10% of the pixels are used for focusing. But with the Galaxy S7, every single pixel is able to take part. Galaxy S7 was the first phone to debut this technology and Galaxy S8 will retain this hopefully.

Galaxy S8 Battery life

The first is the size of the actual cell. Here’s a brief history of battery capacities for recent Samsung flagships:

  • Galaxy S7 – 3,000mAh
  • Galaxy S7 Edge – 3,600mAh
  • Galaxy S6 – 2,550mAh
  • Galaxy S6 Edge – 2,600mAh

Galaxy S8’s battery is expected to be 4000mAh which is in Popular smartphones like OnePlus 3.

Galaxy S8 Water Proof

Samsung Galaxy S7 was waterproof and Galaxy S8 will carry the tradition, we are hoping that S8 will be IP68-certified.

IP stands for ‘Ingress Protection’, and it’s a rating system put forward by the International Electrotechnical Commission to let consumers know how (1) waterproof, and (2) dustproof, a device is. If a handset is IP68-certified, it can be submerged in water at a depth of 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes.
