Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro tipped to be released in India

Samsung is hoping to help the Galaxy S8 standout from other flagship phones with facial recognition for mobile payments.

The battery is also quietly wonderful, as noted by the Verge report, the Samsung Galaxy Book's battery could last up to 10 hours of moderate use with fast charging technology using USB Type-C port.

Thanks to a swathe of screenshots pulled from the latest APK of Samsung Smart Switch - an app created to transfer data between Samsung devices - we now have a solid idea of what the operating system will look like on the Galaxy S8.

Samsung's upcoming flagship smartphone's facial recognition feature may not only serve as a tool to unlock the device.

EPL: Manchester City, Liverpool salvage point each in exhilarating draw
Liverpool's Juergen Klopp rued missed chances but agreed that a draw was a fair end to an eventful encounter. He said: "I never came here and said we are going to win one title".

With this move, Samsung may steadily compete with the likes of Google Assistant and Siri.

You can take a more detailed look at the specs of the Tab 3 on Samsung's website. According to the report, the Galaxy S8 will make combined use of phone's iris scanner, fingerprint sensor, and facial recognition technology to further strengthen authentication for mobile payments.

We're just over a week from the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8, and expectations are high. There's a blacked-out Black Sky version, a light silver Arctic Silver model, and then an Orchid Grey hue that appears to sit in the middle of the other two colors. It's likely that the price won't drop that dramatically, and might even see a slight increase, when converted for the US market.

Along with those new renders, some hands-on images have also leaked out, depicting the Galaxy S8 in a unique purple color. The Galaxy Note 5 sports a model number SM-N920G on the GFX site which is interestingly the model number of the device in Asian countries like India, Sri Lanka, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, etc.
