Samsung starts Galaxy S9 project earlier than usual

The Galaxy S8+ completely wiped the floor with the Google Pixel XL, which lasted a mere 7 hours 19 minutes, and far above the OnePlus 3T's 5 hours 41 minutes.

Tae-woong also confirmed to Korea Herald that Samsung is still facing some technical challenges related to the foldable display technology that they need to improve.

Samsung Galaxy S series, especially from the S6 onwards, has always had the edge in displays. Just like the Galaxy S8 smartphone, the upcoming phablet will also feature Samsung's in-house artificial intelligence (AI) assistant called Bixby and will be powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset, as noted by the same post. Disabling this feature would enable the Galaxy S8+ to gain some extra minutes of runtime, which is invaluable when users are away from a power outlet or a portable power bank.

As the phone uses a mobile network, it does not own to process information traffic from the device, the services add an amount half the original cost of the service when used locally. The fact that the Note 8 could be bigger than the Plus and carry more advanced specs makes this a no-brainer. The logical conclusion being a near featureless glass slab. Soneira's measures the peak brightness of the Galaxy S8's display when the screen is completely white at 405 nits, while at 50% average picture level and 1% full screen white, the S8's display achieves 460 nits and 565 nits, respectively. Apple has a chance to snatch the title this fall with the new iPhone.

The DeX Station is Samsung's attempt at seamlessly turning the Galaxy S8 from a smartphone into a capable desktop computer. If Samsung is hoping to breathe life into the Galaxy Note line after the Galaxy Note 7 debacle, some serious upgrades must be considered. The Samsung Galaxy S7 edge comes with 32GB/64GB/128GB of internal memory.

LG could have announced the LG G6 earlier and started selling the device before Samsung announce the Galaxy S8. The company continues to sell more phones than any rival and has a loyal following.
