Fresh leaks indicate that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will introduce facial recognition, and have a camera that will support ultra slo-mo capturing. Even with the new features expected for the Samsung Galaxy S8, some may have been turned off due to the incident a year ago.

Samsung has taken the necessary steps to ensure that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will not fall to the same debacle twice.

The Galaxy S8 is the first of Samsung's flagship devices that would sport a stunning new frame. These early benchmark scores indicate that Galaxy S8's Qualcomm and Exynos chips will obliterate the competition.

The images do however once again show design features we now think about in our sleep: minimal bezels and no physical home button. Rather, we'll likely see the Galaxy S8 priced around $750 in the United States, following the same price jump as European regions. According to a recent report, one of the functions that the facial recognition feature will perform would be to verify mobile payments. Alanna Cotton, vice president of product marketing at Samsung Electronics America said that consumers are expecting the tablets they own to evolve and adapt with they busy, not to mention demanding, lives.

If true, this super slow motion camera will put the competition to shame with Apple's iPhone 7 only able to record video at 260fps. Doing so makes the device both practical and innovative at the same time. They are expected to be the most expensive smartphones on the market.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is now just days away from being formally unveiled. The ones on the top row in the image are the Galaxy S8s and the bottom ones are the Galaxy S8 Plus.

Samsung has made a point of stressing that the battery on the Galaxy S8 has undergone rigorous testing in a bid to avoid the issues of the Note 7. Also, a glossy black variant of the Galaxy S8 has been spotted in the wild, along with an official poster leak.

According to the blogger, Evan Blass, the regular Galaxy S8 is expected to be priced at 799 euros, with the Galaxy S8 Plus expected to be sold at the slightly higher price.
