Verizon's New Update Enables Bixby Vision On Galaxy S8

Verizon's New Update Enables Bixby Vision On Galaxy S8

The release of Bixby in the U.S. market must be the next big aim for Samsung since the phone's users' expectations are high, following the provision of a dedicated button to access Bixby on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus phones.

The Galaxy S8 series owners have begun to receive the new OTA (Over-The-Air) update, which brings the Bixby Voice feature.

The company will introduce a new phablet later this year in the form of the Note 8, and if the impressive Galaxy S8 is anything to go by, we're expecting a standout handset.

Both handsets, though have 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage (the "Huawei P10" has a cheaper 32GB storage variant), and powerful processors. It wasn't until the stellar Galaxy S7 and S7 edge previous year, that Samsung really proved its worth. For the front-facing camera, it offers 8MP of F/1.7 aperture with autofocus.

And, of course, there is Bixby, Samsung's own artificial intelligence assistant software that can be summoned through a press of the dedicated Bixby button on the left of the phone.




Meanwhile, Apple iPhone 8 will offer 12MP of rear camera with f/1.8 aperture. There is still no detail yet about the capacity of its non-removable Li-Ion battery. With any luck, this will be the last we hear of the Galaxy S8's first major problem. Its market share was 7.4 percent (putting it in fourth place), up from 5.9 percent in Q1 2016. At that point, the market will likely be filled with smartphones packing full-face displays, complete with in-display fingerprint sensors powered by Synaptics' technology (and potentially others', too).

You don't need a special NFC pad like you do with Apple Pay.

The Galaxy S8 is sort of a comeback after that appalling fiasco, and it appears Samsung has indeed made a strong comeback.

New features like Bixby, the intelligent assistant; and a new iris scanner were expected to require a lot of support because of the hype surrounding these features. It includes reminders, the ability to set the alarmclock and create events. The Chinese maker also launched the P10, a range of higher-end smart phones, in the first quarter of this year. It is expected to made available with English accent recognition in United States in coming days.

"And despite any formal announcements from Apple it is safe to say the industry is highly anticipating what comes from this year's iPhone announcements".
