One of the most significant reasons why Samsung remained no. 1 smartphone brand in 2016 is, its continuous capability of innovation. Samsung introduced its virtual reality glass Samsung Gear VR in November 27, 2015 which gained popularity after the release of Galaxy S7 and S7 edge in March 2016. This top-notch innovation turned many iPhone users to Samsung users. After all, how many people will change their smartphone if they get a 6 GB RAM instead of 4 GB? Certainly, I won’t count myself as one of them.
To continue with the growing number of sales, Samsung is bringing the all-new Galaxy S8 in April 21, 2017. So, what are they going to introduce to their fans to surprise and convince them to consume a new device and reach an even bigger audience? So far we know that there will be two major adds in Galaxy S8.
- Irish Scanner: If you always thought fingerprint is not enough for your phone’s security, this very new feature may interest you. Samsung Galaxy S8 will scan your eyes to verify if you are the owner of the phone. Something cool and important for people who got a lot of confidential data on their phone and use mobile banking etc.
- Samsung Desktop Experience support: With the help if this feature, you can connect your phone to a monitor, keyboard, and mouse to turn it into a desktop pc. This feature is somewhat similar to newly released Windows phones. But in case of Samsung Galaxy S8, you will be having that PC experience with Android and not Windows. So, Samsung and Google’s Android is now going to offer some competition to Microsoft’s popular and classic Windows PC as well as Apple’s Mac computers. I personally don’t like android as PC operating system as most of the great PC games and software won’t run this way. I spend much more time on PC than a smartphone. So, this is not a solution for people like me.
These are the two main innovations in Samsung Galaxy S8. There are performance update, camera update etc. which will make it more efficient and offer more quality. They have also added 3D touch display feature like Apple did last year with iPhone.
