Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus being one of the most anticipated smartphone devices in this year 2017, is expected to launch alongside the Galaxy S8, that has recently been reportedly confirmed by the company.
According to one render, it was reportedly discovered that the support page for the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus recently went live as the South Korean tech giants revealed the model number SM-G955FD. Following that, Samsung also went ahead to show the company’s upcoming virtual assistant Bixby that was tipped from the trademark application.
According to one report, Samsung’s decision to manufacture the Galaxy S8 Plus also points out to the fact that the company might be looking to finally do away with the Edge branding seen in last two predecessors – the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
According to the description given from the render, we can simply assume that the Bixby feature may very well be the new digital assistant for Samsung devices, expected to roll out with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.
Going by another report, Samsung is widely expected to extend the AI assistant to all modular applications on board the Galaxy S8 handset. The South Korean tech giants are reportedly looking to push out its AI development after acquiring Viv Labs, a US-based artificial-intelligence software firm.
Based on preliminary reports, we understand that Bixby is expected to have Viv Labs playing the major role. Nevertheless, a new report just discovered that S Voice will be at core of Bixby, instead of the technology acquired from the Viv Labs.
