Since I was born, I have faced a lot of discrimination being a woman, I never stepped out of my house unchaperoned, even for a day. But when I shared my desire to move to Hyderabad to join Verizon, my dad supported me whole-heartedly, even against the wishes of other family members. He was the one who encouraged me for my education and supported my growth,” said a very emotional Bharti.

Accepting the TechGig Geek Goddess 2017 title Bharti added, “Everyone says behind every successful man there is a woman, behind me it’s my dad. I dedicate my success and this award to him.”

It come with iris recognition, face recognition, Bixby assistant, and much more. However, inside the specifications sheet, and something that Samsung should have boasted about on stage, was the fact that both the smartphones come with the latest Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity. This makes the duo the first smartphones to launch in the market with the newest Bluetooth version that brings along a lot of advantages over the others. It also includes eye sensing technology for quite some time, and it seems that Sammy will be improving the eye scanner that we’ll be seeing in the Galaxy S7. The retina eye scanner in both S8 models will be more responsive and take less time to register.
