Samsung Galaxy S8 to launch without one key feature!
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is just a few days away from the official launch but now, the company has stated that the new Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will not include one highlight feature – AI-powered Bixby assistant. This was a key feature which was set to debut on the new smartphones. At the moment, the reason for this delayed has not been established.
In conversation with Engadget, Samsung stated, “With its intelligent interface and contextual awareness, Bixby will make your phone more helpful by assisting in completing tasks, telling you what you’re looking at, learning your routine and remembering what you need to do. Key features of Bixby, including Vision, Home and Reminder, will be available with the global launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8 on April 21. Bixby Voice will be available in the U.S. on the Galaxy S8 later this spring.”
Bixby enters a crowded field of digital assistants powered by artificial intelligence that includes Apple’s Siri, Google Assistant, Microsoft Cortana and Amazon’s Alexa. Samsung said Bixby will focus on letting people control mobile apps with spoken directives.
In terms of specifications, the Samsung Galaxy S8 features a 5.8-inch QHD+ display with a 1440×2960 pixels resolution. On …read more
