Samsung Galaxy S8 to come with new AI assistant

Samsung recently revealed that its next flagship, the Galaxy S8 will have a "slick design', 'an improved camera' and 'an enhanced artificial intelligence'. This attempt is being made to bounce back from the Galaxy Note7 tragedy.

According to reports Samsung's AI assistance might be called Bixby. Now Samsung has revealed to Reuters some details about the virtual assistant.

Samsung said that it plans to make its new AI service available in 2017. The AI assistant will debut with Galaxy S8, and will expand to Galaxy smartphones, home appliances and wearable devices next year. The company also said that developers will be able to attach and upload services to the brand’s AI assistant to offer seamless integration with third party services.

Samsung's AI assistant is being developed by Viv Labs, an AI platform company set up by former developers of Apple's Siri, which it acquired last month.

Rhee In-jong, VIV Labs management and Samsung Electronics, Vice President, said:

"We are developing a key major interface which will bring about a totally new paradigm; an open AI platform. The current Galaxy smartphones need separate applications for users, for instance, to order pizza or coffee. But, the new AI platform will enable them to order (or do) things directly without going through separate applications.

Even if Samsung doesn’t do anything on its own, the more services that get attached the smarter this agent will get, learn more new services and provide them to end-users with ease." 

If rumors are to be believed, the Galaxy S8 will have an edge-to-edge 5.5-inch 4K OLED display, similar to Xiaomi's recently launched Mi MIX. The Galaxy S8 will be powered by Snapdragon 830 or Exynos 8895 Soc depending on region and include 6GB RAM, IP68 rating, an optical fingerprint sensor that will be located below the display and a dual-rear camera setup.

Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S8 in Q1 2017.
