Scientists at MIT, working with Samsung, have discovered solid-state batteries that are better than current lithium-ion efforts. These batteries should be safer, last longer and offer more power.
According to the MIT report these new batteries could be charged for hundreds of thousands of cycles before degrading. They could also provide a 20 to 30 per cent improvement in power density meaning that much more charge for whatever they are powering.

aTypicalGeek, 13 Apr 2017I played with this phone yesterday the first time after watching a few reviews. I have a Samsu... moreHonor 8 Pro? Yeah, just go buy your Honor 8 Pro. The fingerprint scanner will be so much easier to reach on the even taller Honor 8 Pro, right. Good choice. The annoying extra voice assistant so called, HiVoice in Huawei phone must be so useful. The smooth metal body will be so not slippery. And EMUI is so not complicated. You got anything else to say? -_-
a lot of, 14 Apr 2017i can manage to buy 10pcs of this phone at a time but i wont. why?not worth for me. this pho... moreS8 is new for people who never own the S7 edge. If you have S7 edge then of course it doesn't feel as new. Why even bother changing phone if yours is not even that old. I'm pretty sure anyone who own S7 edge by now still haven't even finish paying up their 2 years contract, let alone thinking of buying new phone.
not sure if anyone made this point (well, I don't own the phone yet) but I think on many occasions the actual content shown on this new larger display is less than on smaller displays. Landscape mode, used often when browsing the web or play games will actually cause significant less vertical content because of the aspect ratio.
Basically if you use landscape mode a great deal of time then the S8 is not the phone for you. Do you agree?
this is my dream, haizz may be need wait 4 - 5 year i can buy it.

Samsung own exynos chip is a Samsung innovation the super amoled the same, the dual camera techonogy are 3 very important things that make the difference. You have to be more realistic the next time.
make new things not copy it/take it. there are a lot of phone/tech companies out there that is smarter than samsung. they make revolutionary things not samsung that he all knows is copy it. those sensors that has/had in this phone is nothing new. that iris is from 950/950xl, the finger print comes from a lot phone of other smartphones out there, and other sensor is already using since when?......oh come on samsung really?seriously?waterproof is not new already sony is the best/most trusted when in terms of waterproofing phone. sony been there for how many years. size maybe thet make is 10 inches smartphone and 2mm thick sounds good.
I played with this phone yesterday the first time after watching a few reviews. I have a Samsung s7 Edge phone and I like it. To be honest, the only things that's great about this phone is the display. The Volume button are still on the wrong side for most people. Now the Bixby button is on the same side. Try reaching that with one hand. Retarded. The same thing with the fingerprint scanner, what a silly placement. I have large hands, but couldn't reach it without moving the super thin bezel in my hand and almost dropped it. And three out of the 5 times I tried I hit the camera and I thought I had it correct. The entire phone feels so slippery with those rounded corners. Very easy to drop.
The software has now three assistants, Bixby, Google Assistant, S Voice and if you buy the Microsoft version, you have Cortana too. Really ? I think their UI has gotten way too complicated and it becomes slow after a while. My s7 Edge is now slower then before and it stutter at times. Weird. I have an Honor 8 for work and it is loaded with VPN and all kinds of heavy things and it never slows, super fast and responsive.
For all this money and that many bad decisions, I don't think the upgrade is worth it. I am going to go with the Honor 8 Pro.
Lapcomtech, 11 Apr 20172 Bad things inside it
1 - The battery non removable
2 - No radio tuner inside it.What is it with people that needs removable batteries? Its old tech and unreliable (connector fault blah blah.) Besides it makes the phone thicker.
Also if this had one, the waterproofness would not exist. also, batterylids gets worn in the end and suddenly it also gets full of particles and dust and stuff..
Batteries on phones today are reliable long lasting and lasts its lifetime u have it, coz next year you probably will buy a new phone.
Besides, changing a battery in any closed phones are really not that hard.
No need for radio, why? In my country they are shutting down the FM Band soon (dont know about yours). many providers are now offering free streaming bandwith with their subscriptions so you can stream spotify for free.
Besides, Radio plays shit music 90% of the time..
radio man, 12 Apr 2017if here is radio system then olny i will buy samsunng galaxy s 8 U r in luck, cuz ur iPhone next version will have iRad for u, only for u. ROFL. U make sure to stay out of smart phones, cuz they aren't as smart as u thoÂ…
