Alongside Citibank and AMEX, Westpac customers can add their debit and credit cards to access tap and go payments from their phone or Samsung smart watch.

But now the Galaxy S8 launch is out the way, all eyes are focussed on what comes next: the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. According to Chosun, smartphones would have generated 550,000 pre-orders.

There's still no official word on a Galaxy Note 8, especially with Samsung giving all the highlight to the upcoming S8 variants.

However, with the Samsung Galaxy S8 about to release in just a few days time, our thoughts are now turning to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. We might be able to gauge its screen size more accurately after the release of the Samsung Galaxy S8, which is rumoured to be expanding to a whopping 6.2in display.

This is the highest record in South Korea by the company.

The number of preorders for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus on April 7 and April 9 was much higher than its predecessor Galaxy S7, which sold 100,000 units, and Galaxy Note 7, which sold 200,000 units, during the same period previous year. It's powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 and though the Snapdragon 835 just launched and is powering the Galaxy S8 series, the previous generation flagship is no slouch by any stretch.

There is a huge possibility that Samsung might combine the two flagship phones Galaxy Note and Galaxy S to make a greater smartphone. Starting from the display - the Galaxy S8 will reportedly pack 1440 x 2960 pixels resolutions. If you want one you have to pick up the new Galaxy Tab S3. The phones have an 8MP front shooter.

It also features an iris scanner, facial recognition and supports the new Bluetooth 5.0 standard. DeX is a docking station that lets you turn the Galaxy S8 into a computer by connecting it to a monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
