Telus update to Samsung Galaxy S8 renders Bixby button no longer "remappable"

Earlier this week, before the official Samsung Galaxy S8 commercial was launched, the Korean tech firm has reportedly prevented the Bixby button on its new flagship from being remapped to perform other functions. It was followed by the Galaxy S7 (11.5%) and the Galaxy S6 (11.4%). Samsung started shipping the new device for those who purchased it through preorders which ran from April 7-17.

According to South Korean carriers, the Galaxy S8 has proved to be the most popular new smartphone yet in the Country.

She just keeps getting better with age! She said that she actually did not realize at first how much this movie changed her life. Though she's had quite the illustrious career over the past two decades, Julia says, "I think I'm now peaking".

So the bottomline is that Samsung should be able to keep their consumers within the Samsung ecosystem in order to recover from the problem that the defective battery of the Galaxy Note 7 caused them.

The better-than-expected preorders raise hopes that Samsung's new flagship may sell more than 40 million copies. Local brokerage firms have been estimating sales of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus could reach around 43-60 million units. The high-profile incident hurt the company's image.

A month has barely passed since the launch of Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, and already some issues are coming up regarding the phones. The company also faced supply shortages a year ago when it sold the Galaxy Note 7, resulting in delayed shipments. While standard LCD panel use 3 subpixels namely red, blue and green, the Galaxy S8's OLED screen makes use of 2 subpixels namely red green and blue green.

The developer claims that the recent update to the Telus variant of the S8 has removed the ability to intercept the action of pressing the button (based on the "Accessibility" service), which is why these kinds of apps rely on you to enable them in the Accessibility options before you can use them.
