Apple is believed to have been developing facial recognition technology for a number of years, although it is yet to feature on any of its devices. And, today seems no different. Therefore if you are looking for some exclusive characteristics then Samsung Galaxy S8 is going to be for you. Evan Blass (@evleaks), one of the famous and nearly ever-reliable tipster has revealed the colour options of the smartphone along with pricing details.

As noted above, the Galaxy Tab S3 will launch on March 24, but customers can pre-order from select retailers such as Amazon and Best Buy. With Blass's new leak, the mystery has been unravelled now.

That's down to the tiny bezels and lack of a home button on the Samsung Galaxy S8, but it's an impressive achievement, as Samsung has effectively packed a phablet-sized screen into a more normal sized body. If this turns out to be the official pricing, we must say that it's a huge amount of money.

It is reported that Samsung is now attempting to prevent leaks, but rumors already suggest that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the highly anticipated foldable device.

Theresa May to trigger Article 50 on 29 March
A spokesperson for May said: "We have always been clear that we will trigger by the end of March and we have met that timetable". The country that wants to leave would not negotiate directly with other member states to reach a deal on how it would leave.

The S8 is expected to pack a 5.8-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display, 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The Galaxy S8 will either be armed with a Snapdragon 835 or Exynos 8895 and to have a chipset that is manufactured on the 10nm FinFET architecture brings several key advantages to the table. However, this design is at odds with other recent leaks, and some we've encountered previously.

Aside from that, the Samsung galaxy Note 8 might also flaunt a dual-camera since it was rumored that the South Korean smartphone maker is updating its camera abilities of its handsets. The device runs on Android 7.0 Nougat. The phone also supports a 3,600mAh battery that is capable of giving 20 hours of talk time and 78 hours of standby time.

The phones are scheduled to launch in a few days - on March 29 in NY and expected to start selling not before the end of next month. There's no word on the Indian launch date, though. You can either wait for your phone to receive it (and be prepared, because it can take a while), or you can look for it yourself and thus speed up the installation process.
