Samsung launches Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus in Indonesia

Clears 3C certification

With the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, Samsung Electronics Indonesia vice president IT and mobile business So Djin Gie hopes that Samsung will become the market leader in Indonesia and the trend setter of a new era in smartphones.

A Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is held up with other Note 7 phones on a counter that were returned to a Best Buy on September 15, 2016 in Orem, Utah.

Recently, Samsung delivered on its promise to immediately address the reddish tint issue reported by several Galaxy S8 owners shortly after the device's retail release last month.

The company will introduce a new phablet later this year in the form of the Note 8, and if the impressive Galaxy S8 is anything to go by, we're expecting a standout handset. Both devices come with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. All in all, at the very least you can now take advantage of the new and improved Doze mode on your Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, while working in a true multi-window environment for a greater degree of productivity as you are constantly on the move.

But according to a post shared on XDA Developers, the latest Galaxy S8 firmware update pushed-out by Samsung shuts down the ability to remap the Bixby button. It supports face detection, HDR, and panorama.

Finally, there's also an issue with the Galaxy S8's Super AMOLED screen experiencing burn-ins, which to be fair to Samsung, isn't exclusively a problem of its handsets but all OLED panels ever made. It is built on Exynos 7870 chipset, and the device is IP68 certified.

Virtual Assistant - Samsung' Galaxy S8 features brand-new virtual personal assistant called Bixby. At that point, the market will likely be filled with smartphones packing full-face displays, complete with in-display fingerprint sensors powered by Synaptics' technology (and potentially others', too).

Compare that to the iPhone: The iPhone 7 has a 4.7-inch screen and the iPhone 7 Plus has a 5.5-inch screen. It will also feature Apple Pay. It includes reminders, the ability to set the alarmclock and create events. Samsung Dex will connect the smartphone to PCs with the help of Knox to protect user data. Although the company has not given any deadline for the arrival of this update, yet the listings on GFXBench show that it will get the update soon. The Cupertino-based tech giant is reportedly working on enhancing Siri in time for the launch of the iPhone 8.
