Over the weekend, @evleaks shared new press renders of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in three colorways: black sky, orchid grey, and arctic silver. The pictures, outside of revealing some of the colors coming soon to a retailer near you, don’t show any other really new tidbits. But that isn’t shocking, since these phones are inching towards being the most leaked, now-almost-boring, we’re-sick-of-seeing-all-of-this-stuff-before-launch, devices in history.
Hey, how about some new side shots, though? Ooooh. (more…)
This morning, Samsung kicked off the new week by announcing Bixby, the virtual assistant and interface that will be a big part of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Not only that, but Samsung has “thousands” of software developers working on making Bixby a core piece of their brand going forward, which means it’ll be more than a phone assistant. In time, you’ll be able to control almost all of your Samsung devices through Bixby, including appliances.
Here’s what we know about Bixby so far. (more…)
Currently on my Pixel XL, slow motion video can be captured at up to 240 FPS (frames per second). That’s not too shabby for a smartphone. However, according to a new report, the Galaxy S8 camera can shoot video at 1,000 FPS, practically blowing the doors off my Pixel. How rude. (more…)

More details regarding the upcoming Galaxy S8 from Samsung have hit the web this morning, partially from the company’s own website. (more…)
If you still haven’t picked up a Gear VR for your compatible Samsung device, T-Mobile is offering the SM-R323 model for just $50, down from its usual price of $100. (more…)
You’ve probably heard a few tech bloggers complain about the probable placement of the Galaxy S8’s fingerprint reader — It’s supposedly on the backside, next to the camera. Even I have already complained about this, but no amount of complaining and logical reasoning can fix the reported reason behind Samsung’s decision. (more…)
I don’t know about you guys, but I can only take so many more blurry cam shots of the front of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. While I’m all for a good leak or three, what I really want to see is the software or something unique about these new phones outside of their wild display setup. Today, we got that a bit thanks to a decent first look at the software setup we should see on the each phone out of the box. (more…)
