Samsung delaying key part of new voice assistant - the 'voice' part

In other Samsung developments, Korea's ET News and The Investor reported today that the company has ordered components that would allow it to produce 2,000 to 3,000 prototypes of a new dual-screen smartphone during the first half of this year.

Aside from this, Samsung has been looking to design elements like the nearly edge-to-edge display and its AI assistant Bixby to get customers excited about the Galaxy S8, rather than overly emphasising performance or battery life. The company had earlier released three advertisements for the devices, mostly highlighting its main features.

Alongside Samsung's largest market, the US, the company said it would make more efforts to regain its reputation in China, where Korean companies are facing difficulties amid growing political tension due to the deployment of the US' Terminal High Altitude Area Defense anti-missile system here. But, this is the first time that Samsung has attempted to use this technology.

Given the current pace, preorders for the Galaxy S8 series may top 1 million units, industry watchers expect.

The new smartphone has received favourable reviews ahead of the start of sales in South Korea, the United States and Canada on 21 April. Samsung fans seem so excited, but the foldable phones probably would not hit the mass market until the year 2019.

We all are aware of the Galaxy Note 7 battery scandal that took place a year ago. "Bixby Voice will be available in the US on the Galaxy S8 later this spring".

For two whole minutes, neither team scored since the start of the fourth quarter till Mississippi St made the first bucket. Wilson admitted to being frustrated by Stanford's physical play, and Mississippi State will try to frustrate USC, as well.

In another S8 deal, Samsung partnered with Hotels.com, offering its users up to 40 per cent discount plus an additional 12 per cent coupon on bookings.

Bixby's additional features enable the smart assistant to show users relevant apps and content based on their habits and what they're doing. Also, Bixby is created to know the current state of an app to allow users to carry out work in progress without further explanation.

The handsets of Samsung's Galaxy S8 are announced to come by the last month end and they are the powerful most Smartphone's right now.

Not much is known on the specs and features front, but the source also said that display sizes will be similar to those on the Galaxy S8 (5.8 inches) and Galaxy S8 Plus (6.2 inches).

The study also found that the depreciation suffered by iPhone models is lower with each iteration of the devices.
