The Galaxy S8 design opens up "new ways to experience the world", said Samsung Mobile Communications president DJ Koh in a statement. The device's facial-recognition feature then sees the photo, which shows a person's face, and the handset unlocks. With the new Samsung S8 and S8 Plus, both come with a designated Bixby button. The feature would allow data speeds of the Galaxy S8 up to 1 Gigabit per second.

Just look through the various forum threads over on Android Central and you'll bound to come across many that are now pitting Samsung's latest against the LG G6.

Meanwhile, we are also not a fan of Samsung's decision to put the fingerprint scanner at the back just beside the camera sensor.

An early reviewer discovered a flaw in the facial recognition feature, which lets users unlock the smartphone by looking at the front-facing "with lighting capabilities". A Samsung spokesperson told Mashable that members of the media ran similar experiments before the unveiling but were unable to unlock their devices. Neither of the two has been made available on the market, so the Galaxy S8 will be the first to include them. Check out the source link below for a more in-depth discussion of these security features.

It has been said that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be sold at $720 on Verizon, and the wireless company offers an installment plan of $30 per month for 2 years.
