Galaxy S8 to have no questions asked 3-month refund policy

Galaxy S8 to have no questions asked 3-month refund policy

A show of confidence or a sign of desperation? For now, it seems to be both. In order to counteract the severe impact that the Galaxy Note 7 had on its image, Samsung is believed to be pulling all the stops in marketing the Galaxy S8. Apparently, that includes offering a 3-month refund policy, where dissatisfied owners can return the (undamaged) device, no questions asked. The unorthodox policy is supposedly a way for Samsung to give its Bixby assistant time to mature.

Samsung Galaxy S8 details on a hidden button

Previous reports of a home button under the display of the Samsung Galaxy S8 seem to be coming to fruition. Photos we've collected today from a set of microbloggers in China seem to show the home button looking like nothing more than a standard home button. Reports from these microbloggers, however, suggest functionality not entirely unlike the extra press available in the iPhone's 3D touch, or MacBook's Force Touch.

Samsung Galaxy S8 release date, specs tapped at dawn of Bixby

This week Samsung has once again confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S8 is well on the way with a list of details of what it'll be able to do. These details come largely in the form of Bixby, the device's natural language assistant. This device will be the first to carry Bixby with it everywhere it goes - but it won't be the last.

Galaxy S8 AKG-branded earphones confirm 3.5mm jack

Galaxy S8 AKG-branded earphones confirm 3.5mm jack

Samsung made it known before that it wasn’t in a rush to ditch the headphone jack, unlike eternal frenemy Apple. But that was before the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, before Samsung was placed in a position where it needed to make the Galaxy S8 really stand out. As it turns out, these days, you actually stand out by still having a headphone jack. Audiophiles need not worry (too much) as the Galaxy S8 will still indeed have a 3.5 mm port, seemingly confirmed by leaked earphones for the device.

Galaxy S8+ with Exynos 8895 might be faster than Snapdragon 835

Galaxy S8+ with Exynos 8895 might be faster than Snapdragon 835

Samsung is in a rather “interesting” position as far as silicon production goes. On the one hand, it makes its own Exynos application processor, which is plans to soon push harder to other OEMs. On the other hand, it now fabricates some of Qualcomm’s, specifically the Snapdragon 820, and now, the 835. You might think there’ll be a conflict of interest, especially when you see that, at least on Geekbench, the Samsung Galaxy S8+ running on an Exynos 8895 has a lead over the same phone running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835.

Galaxy S8 to use face recognition for payment, 1000fps slo-mo

Usually, at this point in time, rumors and leaks about the Galaxy S8 should have, more or less, settled down and have been whittled down to a few consistent points. And yet there are now last minute details attempting to still provide some substantial new perspective into the smartphone. “Perspective” is probably apt, considering this is about the Galaxy S8’s imaging capabilities. According to sources, Samsung intends to use a still underutilized facial recognition technology to authorize mobile payments. On the opposite side of the phone, the camera is leaked to be capable of a mind-breaking 1,000 fps slow motion video capture.

Galaxy S8 confirmed to have Bixby, to have 3D Touch home button

Much of the recent leaks for the Samsung Galaxy S8 have mostly focused on its design, which isn’t exactly out of the ordinary since it is what the user will see and hold all the time. Because of that, one of the earliest leaked features for the smartphone has seemingly taken a backseat. It’s been a while since we last heard about Samsung’s personal assistant named “Bixby” but now that silence has been broken. Keen-eyed sleuths have unearthed evidence buried beneath the legalese of Samsung Italy’s privacy document that the Galaxy S8 will, indeed, have this voice-activated assistant.
