Another feature in exclusive Galaxy S8 features is the Desktop Mode. The Desktop Mode feature has all the potential to be proved game changer for Samsung. The news is suggesting that Galaxy S8 will feature an exciting new Desktop Mode which will allow users to connect their monitors to power a full desktop computing experience.
It is Windows 10 feature called Continuum, and it is expected that it will perform in a similar mode. The feature is fantastic, but Galaxy S8 might become pricey because of this feature.
What Is Continuum?
If the word Continuum is not familiar for you then do not worry, we will tell you about it. It is a feature of Windows 10. It allows your mobile device to power a complete PC setup. As per the AAWP, the smartphone device will attach to the monitor through a wire, mouse, and keyboard. It can also be connected via Bluetooth. It will result in a full desktop experience. The other smartphones lack this feature.
3. Iris Scanner
Extra security is always better. Samsung Note 7 fiasco is not a short story at all, but among few good things in it, Iris Scanner was one of them. Now the Iris Scanner will feature in Galaxy S8 as well. It allows a user to unlock his/her phone and access a secure folder through scanning the eye. It could be used for the mobile payment as well. We cannot find this feature in any latest or last year released smartphones.
4. Beast Mode
The South-Korean tech giant has trademarked the “Beast Mode” term in the European Union. The trademark has led to possibilities that Samsung is planning to add Beast Mode feature in Galaxy S8.
However, it is not clear about what beast mode is, the moniker “Beast Mode” sounds interesting, and it could refer to increased endurance or high performance.
The beast mode could be related to power management. Android Ecosystem has many techniques that can influence the strength of the device. However, there is no official news from Samsung, so we have to wait and watch what Samsung has in its store.
5. Extended Batteries
The battery of the Galaxy S8 Plus will be a powerhouse. The battery is going be non-removable 3500 mAh, which other latest phone have not except Blackberry KEYone which has 3505 mAh battery. The Galaxy S8 will feature 3000 mAh, and it will be still better than many other smartphones.
6. Corning Gorilla Glass 5
The Galaxy S8 will be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The protection is four times better than the other competitive glass. It is tough enough to save your phone if you accidently drops it during snapping the pictures or texting on the go. The phone can survive easily if you drop it from five to six feet. Many recently released phones have Corning Glass 4 protection.
7. Bluetooth 5.0
Bluetooth 5.0 is going to feature in Galaxy S8. It will be the very first time that any phone will have 5.0 version of Bluetooth Technology. It promises speed of up to 2 Mbps in all four directions. It can cover a full house without any audio or snags interruption.
8. Bezel-Less Phone
So, Galaxy S8 will be almost bezel-less. The top and bottom bezels will be narrow. The top bezels will have a front camera along with iris scanner and one or two other sensors. The phone is going to have an edge to edge design which is helping Samsung in making bezel-less phone.
9. No Home Button
There will be no home button in Samsung Galaxy S8. Samsung has finally decided to ditch the physical buttons. Instead of a home button, Samsung will use on-screen software buttons. The Samsung logo will be absent on the front, giving it a cleaner look.
10. Camera Aperture
The ‘f’ denoted for camera aperture. It is one of three pillars of photography; others are ISO and Shutter Speed. Aperture can add or bring dimension to an image by blurring the background, and it can majestically focus everything.
Since it is not a photography article, but for your understanding, we will tell you why it is a part of our exclusive Galaxy S8 features.
So, Samsung Galaxy S8 which has a f/1.7 aperture. The lesser the number of the aperture is, the better it will be. No recently released smartphone has a better camera than the upcoming Galaxy S8. Let’s compare it with other mobile phones.
- Galaxy S8 – f/1.7
- iPhone 7 – f/1.8
- iPhone 7 Plus – f/1.8
- Google Pixel – f/2.0
- Google Pixel C – f/2.4
- Google Pixel XL – f/2.0
- Nokia 6 – f/2.0
- HTC U Ultra – f/2.0
So, these were the top-notch and exclusive Galaxy S8 features. There are a lot of phones coming in 2017.
