Predictive Analytics and the Samsung Galaxy S8 Product Launch

Posted May 04, 2017

Fans expect that the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be released in the other half of the year.

Almost nine months ago, Google began rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat for its Nexus devices.

Now that Android 7.0 Nougat is available for unlocked Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge could be a sign that the Samsung maybe really close to providing an OTA update for the same device.

The account is also behind some other recent videos of S8 destruction, treating viewers to clips of the flagship's internals being slashed up with a knife and burned, stabbed, and bent.

Samsung shipped 79.2 million smartphones in the first quarter and regained control as the leader in the worldwide smartphone market despite a flat first quarter (0% on-year growth). The update is now being rolled out in Russian Federation and we expect it to reach out to other regions soon.

The "new flagship smartphone", in case you were wondering, is the Galaxy Note 8. We can only hope for worldwide updates, soon. Even though the Bixby intelligent assistant wasn't immediately available as an operational feature, it represented the largest customer support request downloaded - more than 40% of downloads during the first weekend, according to number of downloads of the device's digital support materials.

Samsung has improved the camera compared to the already excellent S7's and though it still has 12Mp don't let that fool you into thinking that no progress has been made.

All the smartphone manufacturing companies have to test the compatibility of the new version with their devices.

Samsung has changed its TouchWiz interface quite a lot, but it's still far from stock Android 7.

This Galaxy A3 (2017) is a medium range device with 1.6 GHz Snapdragon processor paired with 2GB of RAM. Although there are a couple of not-quite-perfect features, I felt distinct phone envy as I compared it to my iPhone 7. The resolution is 720X1280 pixels with PPI density of 312. It has received IP68 rating for water and dust proof certification. The camera department consists of 13MP back camera with LED flash and an 8MP selfie snapper. A study on mobile phone battery life from Tom's Guide reveals that during continuous web surfing over 4G, the S8 has a battery life of 11 hours. Samsung Dex will connect the smartphone to PCs with the help of Knox to protect user data.

That's the good news.
