What's new?

1. Iris scanner and Facial recognition - Samsung is bringing back the Iris scanner found with the ill-fated Note 7. The Facial recognition which could be a useful security tool is back as well.
2. Rear Camera - Technically it is still using the same 12 MP f/1.7 dual pixel tech w/ OIS. Samsung just added multi-frame tech that shoots 3 photos in one click to create 1 photo w/ less blur. The camera software and post processing also improved dramatically.
3. Selfie Camera - From 5 MP, the company upgraded it to 8 MP at f/1.7. In addition, there's a very quick type of autofocus feature for your blur-free selfies.
4. Bixby - It's the company's newly developed intelligent phone assistant to let you interact with your smartphone. Either via voice, vision, or text. It even allows you to search from the internet by just using your camera. 
5. Dex - This is an interesting new feature that works like the Windows Continuum, but arguably better. It transforms your smartphone into a PC by simply connecting it to the dongle and HDMI ready monitor. It's designed to do browsing, documents, multimedia (music / videos), and even do basic phone task (calls / text).
