Samsung debuts Galaxy S8 halo phones with Bixby AI along for the ride



Samsung rolled out the new S8 and S8 Plus phones this morning after months of leaks, speculation and… well, leaks. But in the end, much of the speculation was on target as the S8 will feature a 5.8-inch display, and a 6.2-inch display on the S8 Plus. The HDR-spec screen that Samsung calls the “infinity display” wraps subtly around the left and right edges of the phone frame, and pushes the top and bottom close to the phones’ edges.

There’s no physical home button, but a push on the screen icon will essentially do the same thing. Also, it’s IP68 waterproof, so taking a swim with it (or dropping it in the loo) isn’t a fatal mistake anymore, it’s just sort of a messy one. The main camera features improved low-light performance, and there’s both an iris scanner and facial recognition along with a fingerprint scanner on the back for James Bond levels of security.

Samsung’s new A.I. named “Bixby” made an appearance, with Samsung calling it an “intelligent interface.” Bixby will also use the S8 camera to gather information to assist phone users, including language translation and shopping by searching with a photo of thing you want. The new flagship phones come out April 21st and they’ll be… expensive. Go here for our full coverage and analysis of Samsung’s big reveal: http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/s...
