But when it comes to the model numbers, you can easily tell which Sammy device you are dealing with, which is the case with the latest mystery Samsung Galaxy smartphone that has model number SM-G615F/DS. Flaws caused its battery to overheat and catch fire, which led to an end of production and a total recall of the popular gadget.

"The Galaxy S8 is our testament to regaining your trust by redefining what's possible in safety and marks a new milestone in Samsung's smartphone legacy".

Mashable notes that, while unlocking the S8 with a selfie might be worrying for consumers, the phone may not have been running the final version of its software. Koh said that the new phones are also aimed at rebuilding customers' confidence, though he did not specifically make reference to the company's failed Galaxy Note 7, expected to cost Samsung well over $5 billion. While the Taiwanese manufacturer lacks Apple or Samsung's resources, it loves to innovate design in new ways.

The install process should be familiar to anyone who's used to adding unofficial apps that aren't on the Google Play Store.

The device features a Infinity Display, that allows for an immersive viewing experiences, and looks to bring in a new level of functionality and convenience. The two phones also offer fingerprint scanning as a way for users to unlock the devices.

Unfortunately, scammers have already found a way to bypass this biometric security feature. Some people have been trying to "analyze" the phones even before they go public.

Now, the stunning and attractive model may have a flaw in its design, but we still can't know with certainty if it will be hard to use the fingerprint scanner or not. That's because patterns in your irises are unique to you and are virtually impossible to replicate, meaning iris authentication is one of the safest ways to keep your phone locked. According to DisplayMate's tests, the Galaxy S8 can achieve a peak brightness of over 1,000 nits, which "improves screen visibility in very high ambient light, and provides the high screen brightness needed for HDR".
