Named Bixby, it is accessible directly via a dedicated button on the edge of the smartphone.

On Tuesday, March 28, the Apple-focused news site "iDrop News" reported that final-stage design documents seen by a "source with intimate knowledge of Apple's manufacturing facility" show a phone design with the Touch ID fingerprint scanner relocated to the back of the device.

Previous leaks suggested that the device will come in two versions - the Samsung Galaxy X1 and the Samsung Galaxy X1 Plus although specifics about it all are still murky. Being the newest chip from the company, the Galaxy S8 will be capable of having a Gigabit LTE-class speeds. The Galaxy S8 will not reconcile the clans. Consider this: the S8+ has a 6.2-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2960 x 1440 pixels and a pixel density of 570 ppi. For instance, both the S8 flagships now have curved displays. One of them is undoubtedly the new virtual assistant, Bixby, who arrives to fill that gap of Siri, Google Assistant or Cortana in other mobiles. Rumors have tended to indicate that the Californian company is considering releasing three iPhone 8 models in 2017, and the largest of these will probably have a display of similar size to the Galaxy S8. The Galaxy S8 only weighs 155g while the Galaxy S8 Plus weighs 173g. The Galaxy S8 Plus has a 3500 mAh battery while the Galaxy S8 comes with a 3000 mAh battery. Users were still able to get Bixby up and running on Android Nougat touting smartphones, however, the experience is likely to be somewhat different. Supporting the existence of a 6GB RAM variant is the TENAA listings that had appeared before the official launch and also mentioned a 6GB RAM on the Galaxy S8. The camera is a 12MP sensor primary and an 8MP sensor for the secondary selfie camera.
