Samsung's new DeX docking station won't be cheap

As far as specifications go, the Galaxy S8 Microsoft Edition is the same as the regular version being sold by Samsung.

We have already mentioned Bixby, Samsung's AI assistant. "The new device customization is an example of bringing together Microsoft applications on more devices so customers can work, play and connect from their pockets", the company said.

In the video, the user simply takes another smartphone with user's picture on it and takes it slowly moves it towards the Galaxy S8 to unlock the device. Some Galaxy S8 units will feature Samsung's own ISOCELL S5K2L2 sensor, while others pack Sony's IMX333 sensor.

A war is being waged inside the Samsung Galaxy S8's curved display, a war of the AIs.

The AI assistant will be rolled out to USA customers on the phone's release on April 21, however global users, including Australians, have been left assistant-less and without a release date for the service on the horizon. They will only be available in AT&T or Verizon flavors for now. In fact, many have perceived the Samsung Galaxy S line of flagship phones as responses to Apple's innovative originals, even though that has not always been the case. By using nearly the entire front part of the phone for the 5.8 display (6.2 for the S8 Plus), Samsung was able to create a large-screen phone that doesn't feel large at all. All four carriers are also offering a special deal from Samsung that includes a free Gear VR headset and controller (valued at $179) and Oculus Bonus Content for preorder buyers, while supplies last. Both the phones have a 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage on board.

At the MWC 2017, Google confirmed that all Android Marshmallow and Nougat devices will receive the Google Assistant via a software update.
