Samsung will be launching its most-awaited flagship devices, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, today at an event. However, just before the official launch, we are still witnessing a lot of leaks and the latest one is the leaked user manual of the device, which spills some beans about some interesting features of the upcoming device.
The user manual shows each and every feature of the smartphones. To start with, the user manual shows the functionality of its virtual assistant, Bixby. The virtual assistant can scan objects or locations with the camera to search for relevant information through Bixby Vision. One can also schedule notifications or to-do items or use location reminders through Bixby.
It is well-known fact that both the devices will sport a curved display and the company is planning to a host of functionality to it including Always on Display, Multi-window support and edge screen. This would be similar to what we have seen in the Galaxy S7 Edge phones.
In terms of security, the company seems to covered all the loopholes as upcoming devices will feature a host of new security measures including iris scanner, fingerprint scanner, facial recognition, Secure folder and Samsung Pass, which uses biometric data, rather than entering one’s ID or password.
Other features listed in the user manual includes Samsung Pay, Samsung DeX for connecting the device to TV or monitor, Samsung Connect, Samsung Cloud, Bluetooth dual audio, external memory card support and water resistant feature.
Meanwhile, the smartphones are expected to come with an expensive price tag and it seems that Vodafone Czech Republic arm has accidentally revealed the pricing of both the devices. According to a report published Samsung Magazine, the Galaxy S8 will come with a price tag of 21,977 CZK, while the Galaxy S8+ will be priced at 24,977 CZK, which roughly translate to Rs 56,980 and Rs 64,759 respectively.
Lastly, if you are one of those who is eagerly waiting for the new Galaxy devices, then this might upset you a bit. If the latest report is to be believed, then the company is suffering from production delays of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and its Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 chipsets. Industry analysts believe that the company’s sales could suffer as Qualcomm has failed to match up with expected heavy demand for the new phones.
