Formerly Exploding Samsung Phones

But guys, the Note 7 is coming back! "Samsung and other IT companies such as Apple should manufacture phones that are easy to fix, refurbish, and upgrade".

The Galaxy S8 is expected to maintain Samsung's current design language with glass panels wrapped around a metal frame.

Industry watchers expect the Galaxy S8 will boast top-notch technologies including an iris scanner and an artificial-intelligence program, along with other attractive features that can raise its user experience to the next level. You'd think Samsung would be trying to do everything it could to get us to all forget about the Note 7. The Note's triumphant return seems less than likely in some countries, especially the United States, considering it remains unclear exactly why the phone began exploding in the first place. At last count, Samsung said more than 96 percent of all devices had been returned. Of course, the one with a 6.2-inch display will be called the Galaxy S8+.

Samsung has worked with Qualcomm to make their new flagship chipset, Snapdragon 835, and the S8 will be the first smartphone to officially launch with the new SoC.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 meanwhile will probably stick with 4GB of RAM - though some rumors peg it at 6GB, likely for Asian regional variations - and have an Exynos 8895 chip in Europe, or a Snapdragon 835 one in the U.S., each of which is the next generation of the chips the S7 used. The Clearview Standing cover for Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus is said to cost about 60 Euros, while the Alcantara Cover will cost 45 Euros and it will also feature an NFC chip.

Secretary Mnuchin's praise of Trump's 'perfect genes' is an extremist dogwhistle
Media Matters for America President Angelo Carusone told ThinkProgress that Trump's comments fit within that fringe worldview. Yeah, he's talking about the same Donald Trump who probably hasn't eaten a vegetable since Nixon resigned.

Sunday NCAA coverage a ratings boon for CBS, Turner
Last year, Turner Sports live streamed the finals live in 360-degree video in cooperation with CBS and Oculus . Anyone with a Samsung Gear VR can tune in via the NCAA March Madness Live VR app .

Google Maps will now remember where you've parked your vehicle
This joins "see places near you", "report blue dot issues" and the dreaded "calibrate blue dot compass" in terms of options. User can also use the feature to allow authorized people to follow them if they are making a trip to specified destination.

The fingerprint sensor has been relocated to the rear (alongside the rear camera) and will support gesture recognition including programmable gestures for opening applications. Samsung went through two recalls past year as it attempted to salvage the situation, but in the end it opted to simply end sales of the Note 7. Still, we're glad that an Android smartphone maker has finally come up with a solid rival to Microsoft's Continuum feature.

What should come as a relief to many is the fact that Samsung is retaining the 3.5mm jack in the S8/S8+ inspite of shifting from microUSB to USB Type-C for charging and data transfer.

Samsung is all set to reveal its latest flagship device the Galaxy S8 on March 29.

Stay tuned for more updates on Samsung deals.
