With Galaxy Note 7 now dead and gone, Samsung focuses on the next generation of Android flagships. Previously known as Project Dream, the flagship that will hit the market as Galaxy S8 will also include technology from the recently acquired Viv Labs Inc., a company founded by one of Siri's creators. To be more specific, the flagship will launch with a personal assistant on board.

According to Reuters, "Samsung Electronics Co Ltd said on Sunday it would launch an artificial intelligence digital assistant service for its upcoming Galaxy S8 smartphone, seeking to rebound from the Galaxy Note 7's collapse and differentiate its devices."

While Samsung did not go into details concerning the services offered via the AI assistant, the company revealed that third parties "can attach and upload services to our agent." The AI assistant is expected to be called Bixby, but the name still has to be confirmed. At last, Reuters also mentioned that Samsung mentioned that "more acquisitions to bolster its AI and other software capabilities" are being planned.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
