Samsung Galaxy Note 8: Looks Like Galaxy S8 But Just Bigger

Samsung's Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones are garnering an unprecedented number f pre-orders, suggesting that the Galaxy Note7 fiasco failed to break consumers' trust in the Korean electronics giant. Essentially, you're getting a slightly upgraded version of Google Now without voice input which is probably not what Samsung had in mind when they implemented this technology.

New alleged leaked images of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 have been making rounds on the internet.

Koh also said the firm plans to use the S8 to try to recover in China, where Samsung has been out of the top five vendors in recent years due to heightened competition from local rivals such as Huawei.

With just a few more days for the launch of the Galaxy S8 duo in the country, here are some new and important features that we might experience in these smartphones.

Speaking at an event in South Korea, the company's mobile chief DJ Koh announced that preorders for the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus have outstripped the amount of preorders for Samsung's previous generation of flagship.

YG Handcuffed by LAPD for Not Being Cooperative
There are reports that Tyga was actually arrested, but it's unclear if he was arrested, or just taken into custody at this time. Ironically, Tyga was JUST showing off his new ride on Instagram hours earlier, perhaps just after he purchased the auto .

Samsung is confident about safety this time, as it has worked to prevent the same safety problems it had for the Note 7 past year.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has a new approach, as the company has adopted a similar all screen front and widescreen aspect ratio. Bixby Vision, Home and Reminder, however, will be available at launch.

Samsung has also been praised for its Infinity Display on the Galaxy S8, and the screen itself melts towards the side and gives a great first impression of a wraparound panel.

Bixby's additional features enable the smart assistant to show users relevant apps and content based on their habits and what they're doing. The device will be coming to AT&T as an exclusive - the lineup gets its refresh in June every year, so we can see the device launching around the same time frame. As for users in the United States, they would have to wait a little while longer as "Bixby Voice will be available on the Galaxy S8 in the USA later this Spring".
