Samsung’s latest phones feature big wraparound screens and lots of glass.

The nearly all-glass design of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ makes them beautiful, SquareTrade said, but also “extremely susceptible to cracking when dropped from any angle.” Samsung had no comment.

Despite the tests, a SquareTrade survey found that smartphone owners are twice as likely to buy the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ as they are an iPhone in the next six months.

As we get closer to the unveiling of the Galaxy S8, we’re hearing more positive things about it – like The Guardian reporting that it has new information that seems Samsung keeping the 3.5mm headphone jack on the Galaxy S8, and more.

They add that the Galaxy S8 will have a 3.5mm headphone jack, something they’ve heard from “multiple sources”, and that it does indeed rock that beautiful “all-screen” design that we’ve been reporting. Inside, we are to expect Qualcomm’s powerhouse Snapdragon 835 processor, USB-C connectivity, microSD card support, and more.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is surely one of the most anticipated smartphones of next year and information on the upcoming device continues to surface online. GizmoChina recently came across new renders of the phone, showing its stunning design.

Judging by the renders, the Galaxy S8 will be a gorgeous phone with dual-curved display. Samsung has reportedly decided to ditch the flat-screen variant and provide the phone in two curved-display variants. The decision was surely influenced by higher sales of the Galaxy S6 edge and S7 edge, compared to their flat-screen counterparts.

You were probably hoping the whole no headphone jack thing was just a 2016 fad, right? Sorry, but Sammobile thinks it’s here to stay, as Samsung is reportedly preparing to release its Galaxy S8 sans jack. The S8 is also expected to ship with a USB Type-C port for charging and listening to music. The Note 7 featured a USB-C port, too, but we all know where that phone ended up. (The trash.)

Samsung Electronics Co plans to equip its next Galaxy S smartphones with a Siri-like digital assistant, seeking to make a comeback after the global debacle that precipitated the death of its flawed Note 7 lineup.

Samsung, which last month acquired US-based artificial-intelligence software company Viv Labs Inc, said the Galaxy S8 slated for next year will come with AI-enabled features “significantly differentiated” from those of Apple Inc’s Siri or Google, executive vice president  Rhee In-jong told reporters.

Those services now offer up potentially useful information from the weather to flight times based on user activity.

Samsung Electronics said Sunday it’s investigating a Galaxy Note 7 that is reported to have caught fire in Kentucky, a third incident in less than a week involving its replacement phones.

Michael Klering of Nicholasville, Ky., told WKYT that he woke up to a hissing sound in his bedroom Tuesday and found his replacement Note 7 on fire. He said he had owned the phone a little more than a week before it caught fire.

“The phone is supposed to be the replacement, so you would have thought it would be safe. It wasn’t plugged in,” Klering told the station. Klering said he went to a local emergency room due to vomiting and was diagnosed with acute bronchitis. He is now seeking a lawyer.

While Samsung reserves its Galaxy mantle for its flagship phones like the new Galaxy S7 and Edge, what happens to those Galaxys far, far, away?

A lot of the technology trickles down to its mid and mass-market handsets like the Galaxy J2 that, at $199, has been called “the most affordable premium handset of 2016”. Bang for buck that is not far off the mark.
