Samsung has made a decision to release a 'Pirates of the Caribbean' Galaxy S8

"Through Bixby, Galaxy S8 users can gain access to banking services without using their fingers, just their voice", the company said.

In addition, we're now seeing news that Samsung will soon launch a new edition of the Samsung Galaxy S8+ in India - this is the 6GB RAM, 128GB storage variant already released as an exclusive in China and South Korea.

In terms of design, the Galaxy Note FE looks identical to the Galaxy Note 7, boasting a sleek metal-and-glass construction that looks and feels premium. While it comes in a special pirate-themed treasure box, the phone itself isn't terribly distinctive. It also comes with a special phone ring holder.

Clearly, looking at the pricing, the phone is a far cry from the "mid-range" option it was expected to be. Why buy a boring regular Galaxy S8 when you can get a Pirates of the Caribbean-themed version for $880? The renders show that the Note 8 will come with a massive 6.3-inch display screen with Quad HD+ resolution of 2960 x 1440 pixels resolution. It also increased the size of the clock in certain modes, making it easier to see on the display. The 18.5:9 aspect ratio is better than the standard 16:9 ratio found on most phones for watching videos and playing games.

The smartphone has been powered by Samsung's Exynos 8995 processor which has been built using 10nm process. The Galaxy S8 runs on Andoid 7.0 Nougat with the company's TouchWiz UI.

The device has a 12 MP rear camera with multi-frame processing and optical image stabilisation. On the front the phone sports an 8-megapixel shooter with f/1.7 aperture and autofocus.

It is backed by a 3,000mAh non-replaceable battery that can give up to 21 hours of talk time.

Bixby, the Galaxy S8's digital assistant was supposed to be Samsung's answer to the Siris, Alexas, Cortanas, and Google Homes of the tech world, but its voice controls were delayed in the U.S.
