  • Samsung lets you go hands on with all its gadgets…

The dual-screen smartphone may be a preliminary prototype for Samsung's supposedly bendable smartphone, the Galaxy X.

It can perform several manual tasks on your behalf.

The buzz around Samsung has already changed.

Tech Crunch reports that the Bixby voice assistant will only be available until "later this spring". However, the Wall Street Journal reports that the delayed rollout could last until the end of May. Bixby's failure to live up to promises would have been a bigger embarrassment if the technology didn't work as advertised, she noted.

We are being told that a full Bixby will be made available as an update later this year.

Why would people want to use an underdeveloped Bixby when they have access to a more advanced Google Assistant? The other variant of Galaxy S8+ sports a 6.2-inch QHD+ (1440×2960 pixels) Super AMOLED display.

5.8-Inch OLED Smartphone Delayed due To 3D Sensor Technology
There were various reports that proposed the Apple iPhone 8 would cost more than of $1,000, that's something around £800. However, the analyst says it that it should be ready for the market before the December holidays.

Those who pre-ordered the latest flagship phone of electronics giant Samsung will be getting their orders ahead of the official launch. Though the company claims that about 100k Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus units have been tested for battery safety prior to its launch, it would require millions of satisfied customer testimonials for building its image once again. It said last week it expects its operating profit in the first quarter was 9.9 trillion won (US$8.8 billion), up 48 percent from 6.7 trillion won in the same period a year ago, helped largely by growth in its components business. The strong pre-orders show that consumers have moved on from the Note 7 debacle. This means you may or may not be ahead of everyone else, unlike before when the uncarrier would release pre-orders in advance.

However, this time round, T-Mobile has opted to ship the Galaxy S8 just two days prior to its nationwide release. In a statement released just a few days ago, a Samsung spokesperson relayed that "pre-orders of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ in the U.S. are outpacing those of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge with strong double digit growth". Pre-orders close on April 17th.

The Galaxy S8 and S8+ also feature some of the most advanced types of security features.

Analysts expect Samsung to record its best-ever quarterly profit in April-June, buoyed by strong S8 sales and a memory chip market boom that is widely expected to deliver record revenue for the industry this year.

The publication said that this piece of information actually came from The Investor, a Korean online news service.
