After a not very successful year, Samsung finally announced a new phone. On, Thursday 29/03 they launched in New York a new phone model after their fail and having their previous Note 7 being recalled.
The new Galaxy S8 not only that promises to not catch on fire while charging but also comes with something that some of us are already used to. Bixby is their new added feature and it’s an artificially intelligent voice assistant that, they claim, is going to be different from Siri and Google Assistant.
On their official page they say “Bixby will be a new intelligent interface on our devices. Fundamentally different from other voice agents or assistants in the market, Bixby offers a deeper experience thanks to proficiency in these three properties:”
The idea behind it is that machines should be able to adapt to humans instead of the other way around it. Bixby claims to be more intelligent than any other voice assistant and will understand better the user’s needs without you having to remember exact phrases.
“We do have a bold vision of revolutionising the human-to-machine interface, but that vision won’t be realised overnight. Ambition takes time. Bixby will be our first step on a journey to completely open up new ways of interacting with your phone. At the launch of the Galaxy S8, a subset of pre-installed applications will be Bixby-enabled. This set will continue to expand over time. Our plan is to eventually release a tool (in SDK) to enable third-party developers to make their applications and services Bixby-enabled easily.” (source)
Apart from this new addition, the phone will also feature a no home button and a more sleek design and also a dual bluetooth option that will allow you to use 2 different headsets simultaneously.
Galaxy 8 will also have a fingerprint recognition, face recognition, iris recognition a secure folder for all your important files and a Samsung pass that will register your passwords for different websites so you won’t have to type in your details when trying to login.
Probably one of the best feature is that the phone will be water resistant and the new Samsung DeX which will allow you to use your phone like a computer connecting it to an external display, keyboard or mouse.
Only time will tell if the battery issue has been solved and let’s hope this time Bixby won’t catch on fire.
