  • Microsoft touts Microsoft-customized edition of Samsung Galaxy S8

The Galaxy S8 Mini is rumored to ship with the Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core SoC, which is Qualcomm's flagship SoC, and it is fueling the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. Once again, this is identical to what we see in Samsung Galaxy S8. "In addition, the Galaxy S8 provides users with multiple options to unlock their phones through both biometric security options, and convenient options such as swipe and facial recognition", the company told Ars Technica. The fingerprint scanner is shifted to the back of the device.

Samsung just recently launched its flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S8.

A Microsoft employee will be there to unbox it for you (we love doing that ourselves), connect to Wi-Fi (in store, which you'll probably not use again) and install app - yes, Microsoft apps. The Galaxy S8 Microsoft Edition still runs Android paired with Touch Wiz, so what's the difference?

Samsung made a big deal about how many ways in which the new Galaxy S8 can be secured and unlocked.

Last but not the least, the smartphone hosts Samsung's new virtual assistant named Bixby. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is Samsung's answer to the Note 7 issue from a year ago so they went all out for people to move on from that debacle and focus on the latest one. This is the reason why the batteries of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus have been reduced. Neither of the two has been made available on the market, so the Galaxy S8 will be the first to include them.

Both the handsets will boast 4GB of RAM and come with 64GB inbuilt storage while also supporting expandable storage via microSD card (up to 256GB).
