Samsung Galaxy S6: Nougat Scare Is Over!

Samsung Galaxy S6: Nougat Scare Is Over!

Samsung officials have leaked some more information about the upcoming Galaxy 8, this time disclosing the flagship will have facial recognition technology that will allow users to unlock the phone in just 0.01 seconds.

Samsung has been rolling out a new iris scanning technology created to support the device security of Galaxy Note 7.

Based on the FCC documents, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is registered in three different variations carrying model numbers such as SM-G950U, SM-G950U1 and SM-G950W. The Galaxy S8+ with a 6.2-inch display looks head to head with the iPhone 7 Plus with a 5.5-inch display, again because of more display real estate.

The Chinese giant has put out one of the best phones in recent times with its Mate 9 flagship.

As usual, there will also be two variants of the device, one with the Qualcomm chipset and another powered by Exynos.

Images emanating from Seanmirza23 suggest that the Galaxy S8 features a screen protector produced by an unknown manufacturer. These numbers would dwarf Samsung's current offerings. Given that the phone is rumored to be equipped with USB-C to enable it function as a PC when docked, it remains to be seen if Samsung has improvised battery life and charging cycles.

But most of those leaks have shown either the black or the silver version of the S8.

If you thought that the iPhone 7 was expensive the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S8 is going to have you changing your mind as it will make it look cheap. At the back panel, you will see a heart beat sensor, fingerprint scanner module, camera flash, and a main camera.

Further corroborating older rumors that the Galaxy S8 Plus would have a 3,500-mAh battery, an image of what's likely the S8 Plus' battery was uncovered by SamMobile, also on Weibo, the social network that is so popular in China.

Announcing the date of the new smartphone at the annual Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona last month, Samsung also said the S8 smartphone will offer a high-quality earphone featuring Harman's AKG technology.
