Samsung confirms Bixby voice assistant, sucessor of S Voice

Samsung confirms Bixby voice assistant, sucessor of S Voice

Well courtesy of these leaks, we have seen the spec sheets, live images of the device and even some live videos leak.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the second generation of the Samsung Galaxy Note series which is under the category of phablets.

Previously, we were led to believe that the Galaxy X would be a product you could actually buy, with an unveiling at Samsung's usual August/September Unpacked event.

But aside from the dual camera and new chipset, other features was also revealed for the said device.

A separate report claims that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 may feature a new 3D Touch technology citing industry sources. Making it the only tablet that Samsung has with a USB-C connector, at this time. Samsung's flagship might feature an advanced virtual personal assistant dubbed Bixby. The S Pen is now larger, and feels a bit more solid, Samsung has also brought over all of the features from the Galaxy Note 7 here, like screen-off memo and more. "Devices are cross-compatible between the two countries, and with the small size of Canada's population vs the USA, it's easy to satisfy demand for both countries at the same time", Chris Mills for the tech site wrote.

A rather controversial move by Samsung, the firm will not offer the same performance configurations on all their devices.

It comes equipped with Android 7.0 Nougat and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with support for the Vulkan Games API. No word on other markets yet. That virtually confirms that the phone will launch in the United States by the 28th at the latest, as it's highly unlikely to launch in Canada before the US.

One of the much discussed specs of the device is the 'RAM' configuration, reports previous year suggested that Galaxy S8 will have a 6GB RAM.

The Galaxy Tab S2 featured lovely rounded corners, a slim build, rear camera lens in the centre at the top and a fingerprint sensor within the home button on the front of the device and the Galaxy Tab S3 follows suit. As for the 4G model, it is speculated to be around the $700 price range.
