Today is the day when one of the most anticipated smartphones of this year, the Samsung Galaxy S8, is finally to be unveiled. The new device is not only supposed to be Samsung’s answer to its biggest rivals, but the world is looking ahead to see how the South Korean tech giants manage to redeem themselves after last year’s Note 7 disaster.
A lot of effort has clearly gone into making Samsung‘s upcoming high-end flagship device, and numerous leaks over the course of the past half year are indicators to some remarkable features that might be brought in with the new smartphone. But as new reports go to show, it is never too late to hunt for new leaks. The most recent one unveils, and confirms, a lot of the things that we have been hearing about for a long time. But thankfully, there are a few new additions that make the approaching event all the more exciting.
Before Samsung announces the Galaxy S8 today, the device’s user guide was uploaded to Samsung’s download center. Whether this was done accidentally or otherwise is not clear at the moment, but that was enough for hawk-eyed enthusiasts to grab the whole thing before it was removed. The user manual points out some important features like the Bixby Voice Assistant (that can also be accessed by text), both an Iris Scanner and a Facial Recognition system besides the fingerprint reader for added security, and the Infinity Display with its added Edge functionalities like drawing up a task or sharing thing more easily.
There are a few interesting additions to note here, as one publication noted. It looks like the Samsung Galaxy S8 will come with a new feature that will let you use it like a conventional computer by connecting it to an external display, keyboard, and mouse. This one, called Samsung DeX, is not alone. The new Galaxy smartphone will also be able to support up to two audio outputs at the same time via Bluetooth. It is made all the more special by the user’s ability to adjust the volume for each output independently.
There is a bunch of other things on the guide as well, but none quite as exciting as these. No regrets there, for we only have to wait a couple of more hours before we get to lay sight on the actual device.
