Finally, Samsung has officially unveiled the Galaxy S8, and it's a doozy, starting with a new Infinity Display, which wraps around the sides.

A fingerprint sensor is located on the back, next to its 12-megapixel f1.7 camera. The phone is both water and dirt resistant, powered by an octa-core processor, and has a new virtual assistant named Bixby. You'll also get to choose from either a 5.8 or 6.2-inch (S8+) model in black, silver, or gray. Click here for a few hands-on images. Continue reading for a hands-on video and more information.

Human Head Transplant

Italian neurosurgeon Sergio Canavero says he plans to attempt the first human head transplant later this year on 31-year-old Russian software development manager Valery Spiridonov, who suffers from a debilitating muscle-wasting disease. To be more specific, the procedure is estimated to last about 36 hours, and Spiridonov's head will be cooled to around 12° Celsius, cut from his body and connected to a donated body of a brain-dead person as quickly as possible. Canavero will be assisted by a team of 100 surgeons and other medical staff, and afterwards, Spiridonov will be kept in an artificially-induced coma for 3-4 weeks while doctors stimulate his spinal cord nerves to reconnect and start functioning.
