Galaxy S8’s Bixby to be able to identify real-world things

Galaxy S8’s Bixby to be able to identify real-world things

It’s really no secret that Samsung wants in on the whole AI-powered personal assistant bandwagon. After all, it did purchase Viv Labs, founded by Siri’s original creators. Rumored to be called Bixby, at least in one gender-based incarnation, Samsung’s personal assistant is expected to debut on the Galaxy S8, which, in turn, is expected to be unveiled in just a few weeks. But when Bixby does launch, it might have an ability none of its peers currently have: recognizing objects and text via the Galaxy S8 camera.

Galaxy Note 7 investigation reveal will be livestreamed

It seems almost too ironic that Samsung is turning what is one of its most embarrassing moments into a high-profile media event.

And it will make that announcement at a large press conference on Sunday evening, US time.

Samsung Galaxy S8 images may show us our best early peeks yet

This morning we've had what seems to be our clearest look at the Samsung Galaxy S8 thus far - thanks to a few renders from various sources. I want to be up front as possible about the images you're about to see - most of them are almost certainly renderings of what the device MIGHT look like. That said, it's common knowledge that companies as large as Samsung use rendered elements themselves in the presentation of the Samsung Galaxy S series for consistency's sake.

Galaxy S7 Nougat update display fix: how to switch back

When the Samsung Galaxy S7 is updated to Android 7.0 Nougat, it changes the default settings for its display. This is not the end of the world, believe it or not, and all can be turned back with a few easy steps. Now, if only making this switch had a mega-significant effect on battery life.

Nokia 6 release vs Galaxy J7 Prime: 5 reasons to choose either

The Nokia 6 and the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime are set to be released this year, making way for a midrange smartphone era like none other. Here in the year 2017, we're past the time at which "midrange" is treated like a dirty word. Instead, components from the high end have been produced so long and expectations have come so far that even the midrange, low cost devices on the market today are top notch. They may not be as superior as the devices that cost $800 and up, but they don't need to be - these cost under $300!

Galaxy S8 display glass tips teeny tiny bezels

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus seem to have been revealed all at once in a single photo. This photo depicts both devices - if we are to believe that this photo is indeed the real deal - both Galaxy devices rolling with curved edges. This fits with previous rumors of at least one Samsung Galaxy S8 device with both left and right edges curved instead of a flat device with a larger, curved-edge release partner. At the release date for these devices we would not be surprised to find this image's accuracy to be spot-on.
