Microsoft will start reselling Samsung's Android smartphones

Microsoft will start reselling Samsung's Android smartphones

"The Galaxy S8 is arguably the most important launch of the last 10 years for Samsung and every aspect will be under the microscope following the Note 7 recall", commented Ben Wood from the CCS tech consultancy.

Samsung had introduced their Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus flagship smartphones two days ago, and a rumor just surfaced claiming that the Galaxy S8 Mini is on the way as well.

After months of leaks and speculation, Samsung launched the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus on March 29.

Even Microsoft is being swept up in Samsung Galaxy S8 mania. Bixby is set to take on other voice-based virtual assistants powered by artificial intelligence including Apple's Siri, Google Assistant, Microsoft Cortana and Amazon's Alexa.

According to a CNET report, the new phones will carry a price tag of $750 (for Galaxy S8) and $850 (for Galaxy S8 Plus). There's plenty of other options available on the Galaxy S8.

Meanwhile, we are also not a fan of Samsung's decision to put the fingerprint scanner at the back just beside the camera sensor. Apple might also use the 2.5D OLED edge to edge display for the new Apple iPhone 8. In any case the good work of Samsung is sure to extend the compatibility of these applications with Bixby in all the markets in which it is marketed. Both the phones have a 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage on board. This is the reason why the batteries of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus have been reduced.

And given the fact that it's still a few weeks until the phone hits stores, Samsung could potentially upgrade the phone's software to fix the fault by then. But a video released Wednesday shows it may not be as safe as you'd hope.

We have to mention that when the issues with the Galaxy Note 7 have started, the development of the Galaxy S8 was nearly complete.
