Pre-orders for Samsung Electronics Co Ltd's flagship Galaxy S8 smartphone have exceeded those of its predecessor S7, mobile business chief Koh Dong-Jin said on Thursday, suggesting many consumers were unfazed by last year's Galaxy Note 7 fires.
In just few weeks of the Galaxy S8 lineup pre-orders going live in the United States and South Korea, Samsung witnessed a "double digit growth" (at least 10 percent) over Galaxy S7's previous year. Just months removed from the recall of its exploding Galaxy Note 7 devices, all seems forgotten.
The new Galaxy S8 smartphone will launch in two versions, one with the Snapdragon 835 and the other with Samsung's own Galaxy Exynos 8895 SoC. Bixby Vision, Home and Reminder, however, will be available at launch.
US strike in Afghanistan: What is the 'Mother of All Bombs'?
So far, Trump has offered little clarity about a broader strategy for Afghanistan, where some 8,400 USA troops remain. ISIS, notorious for its reign of terror in Syria and Iraq, has been making inroads into Afghanistan in recent years.
Samsung made headlines when they announced their new voice assistant called Bixby.
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. "But it's better for them to make sure that the technology is ready rather than rush it." said Bryan Ma, an analyst with research firm IDC.
Samsung Galaxy S8 is definitely in demand as an astounding number of units have been pre-ordered in South Korea.
Activists to use Tax Day to tell Trump: Show us returns
The legislation would require the disclosure "the personal tax returns of any individual named in the entity entering into the concession agreement" - and Trump Ferry Point is the only vendor with an individual name in it.
Touching on the issue of the planned sales of the refurbished Galaxy Note 7, the Samsung CEO said the company is now in talks with global regulators, including those in the U.S. and China, as well as non-government organizations such as Greanpeace International before shipping the phone.
Samsung has yet to confirm the reason for the hold-up, nor how long Galaxy S8 users can expect to wait until Bixby Voice arrives. Bixby remains one of its major features, and failing to deliver on that end could spell significant trouble for the South Korean tech giants. The S8 Active will likely retain the rating, but with the certification relying on simulated testing in lab conditions and not real-world usage scenarios, you shouldn't rely on it too much.
US regulators aim to keep the ban on in-flight phone calls
No federal regulations now govern Wi-Fi calls during flights, although most USA airlines prohibit all voice calls. Many argued that the ban relaxation will result in passengers disturbing with noisy phone calls.
