Samsung Galaxy S8+ Prototype With Dual Camera Spotted

Confirmed: Samsung S8 Won't Officially Support Remapping Bixby Button

Samsung has seen stronger pre-orders for the Galaxy S8 than it did for the S7 and S7 Edge past year.

As of 8:00 p.m., about 210,900 of the preordered Samsung smartphones have been opened under new accounts, according to data tallied by three local mobile carriers.

Samsung's new launcher on the Galaxy S8 is new and pretty, but it's still not for everyone. However, why has Samsung removed the ability to remap the Bixby Button on its flagship smartphones?

This means, that if you like Google Assistant more than Samsung's Bixby and don't wish to root your device, you'll be stuck with a button which does nothing for you - better hope Bixby is as efficient too.

Samsung Galaxy S8 will be released in the U.S. for $720 starting Friday, April 21, while those in the United Kingdom can purchase the device for £689. Samsung has also set a sales target of over 60 million units, which is more than what was expected for Galaxy S7. However, some Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners weren't able to adjust the colors on their screens, as they came already optimized.

A spokesman told The Korean Herald that the tint isn't a quality issue and that it can be fixed in the phone's settings menu. As we're sure you will recall, Samsung's best smartphone to date was recalled previous year - twice - after some Note 7 batteries burst into flames, causing injuries and property damage in the process. Samsung's latest flagships have already been released in South Korea, and most carriers in the USA and Canada have started shipping all pre-ordered devices.

Interestingly, there is also a dedicated thread on Reddit now where the "Red tint" issue on the Galaxy S8 is being discussed.

At the moment, Samsung is still holding off the release of the voice-controlled Bixby feature based on the statement given to The Verge.
