Samsung Voice Assistant Bixby Finally Rolling Out

The new set of functionalities also apparently include the support of digital sticky notes with the Galaxy Note 8 S Pen.

In another effort to reduce waste, Samsung has begun selling 400,000 units of Galaxy Note FE phones in South Korea made from unused parts of recalled Note 7 smartphones.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was recalled previous year roughly two months after its launch due to safety concerns.

It's just one month remaining and many eager fans are already asking: how much is Samsung Galaxy Note 8?

Another drop of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 renders has hit the internet, this time from case manufacturer Ghostek.

Moreover, the Galaxy S8 smartphone packs a 5.8-inch display, while the Galaxy S8 Plus smartphone packs a 6.2-inch display. Where its rivals arguably attempt to replace interacting with the display altogether, Bixby is more like another layer on top of the regular phone experience. However, if the Galaxy Note 8 is as good in person as it is in all the leaks, it's likely Samsung will end the year on a good note (no pun intended). It's a shame that Bixby has been embarassingly delayed considering the heavy promotion Samsung has given to Bixby, even including a dedicated Bixby button on the Samsung Galaxy S8.

The problem reportedly stems from a lack of "big data" to make a product that can compare with other English voice assistants such as Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple Siri, so it's perhaps no surprise that a Bixby speaker ain't gonna see the light of day anytime soon.

The back of the device gives us a really nice look at the camera and fingerprint sensors.

While there is still a shocking amount of mystery surrounding the upcoming iPhone 8, Samsung's new flagship Galaxy Note 8 seems like an open book at this point. The reason for vertically aligned sensors would be to offer better performance for augmented reality (AR) applications.

Rumours have been rife that the United States technology will use an embedded fingerprint sensor or facial recognition for unlocking their iPhone 8 but these pictures clearly show a rear case with space for appears to be a scanner.
