Samsung Galaxy S8 to use facial recognition for payments

In a related development, Samsung has revised the contents on the company's mobile privacy policy page and revealed the name of the Galaxy S8's rumoured digital assistant feature. Talking about the price, Samsung Galaxy S8 is said to have a price tag of $849 or $950, the LG G6, on the other hand, is up for grabs for $795. The aforementioned speakers are tuned by audio brand AKG. There were originally claimed to be two versions of this device in terms of screen size, though this has turned out not to be the case.

While more details have been revealed for the Galaxy Tab S3, the same can not be said for the Galaxy Book detachable tablet that was also announced last month. It includes a number of features, such as Screen Off Memo for jotting down notes when the display is off, as well as PDF Annotation and Advanced Drawing Tools.

The Tab S3 also supports a Pogo keyboard, which can be purchased separately for $130, starting March 24.

Better comparisons can be made once both devices land in the market.

Doorbell Camera Captures Fire at Overland Park Apartment Complex
KMBC reports the fire broke out at around 3:30 p.m.at the CityPlace Apartments near 69 Highway and College Boulevard. Support and lodging: Go to the Christ Lutheran Church near 119th and Indian Creek Parkway.

Yet, it's only logical to assume that Samsung will be using a similar solution to achieve this - the Galaxy S8's camera will most probably sport an additional DRAM memory element between the camera's sensor and the circuitry of the image signal processor. The software features Samsung's TouchWiz interface on top, and it sports several new features compared to the Galaxy Tab S2, including the S Pen functionality.

The tablet runs on Google's latest Android 7.0 Nougat software, and comes with a "new and improved" S-Pen too. Nonetheless, another tech analyst stated that the rare move of Samsung to release a Galaxy S8 ad appears to be an attempt to bring down LG from dominating the industry before the Galaxy S8 launches, Phone Arena reported.

"Consumers today expect their tablets to adapt and evolve with their busy and demanding lives, enabling them to do a lot more but with the convenience of a mobile device", said Alanna Cotton, vice president of product marketing at Samsung Electronics America. While pre-orders begin today, in-store availability won't begin until March 24th.
