It is known that in the near future will present the new Samsung flagship smartphone Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. New items will be shipped with pre-installed voice assistant Bixby, which will call for a separate button on the side of the face. Samsung has already registered the trademark brand virtual assistant. Probably, it will use the phrase “Hello” to awaken. A few days ago there were rumors that the new development will be based not on the project Viv Labs, and on the Samsung S Voice.
Recall that last year the South Korean manufacturer has acquired a startup Viv Labs, which developed Siri and was later bought by Apple. S Voice Samsung smartphones appeared in quite some time and was a promising project, but then withdrew into the background because of the appearance on the market of Siri, Cortana and Google Assistant. New Bixby will support more than 8 languages, including English, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Korean, Spanish, and others. Development will use artificial intelligence technology and differ more “human” response.
There is a chance that Samsung will integrate with other Bixby branded devices. Meanwhile, expect the first version of the voice assistant can together with the release of Galaxy S8.
