Samsung Galaxy S8's AI assistant - Bixby - on hold for Australian market
Mar 31 2017 by Michele Stevens
Samsung already started displaying the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus at its main shop located in southern Seoul on Thursday, allowing visitors to experience firsthand the top-notch features and cutting-edge design that has received positive initial reviews from home and overseas.
"We've built intelligence into the camera", he said. The Galaxy S8 comes in some handsome colours: Midnight Black, Arctic Silver, Coral Blue and Maple Gold. They both have an edge-to-edge, near-bezel-less screen enclosure called an Infinity display, picking up that styling from the S7 Edge. Thus, while the Samsung Galaxy S8 is itself a stellar handset, its price would be something that could prevent users from purchasing the device. The company also claims to have made major changes to the image processing software for the new Galaxy line.
Samsung apologized to consumers for the recall and was forced to postpone the S8 launch. The home button for the phones is now located under the glass at the bottom of the displays and offers haptic feedback when pressed by users. Not all touch commands will have voice counterparts right away. Why Microsoft thinks this is what customers want, is beyond me.
The front camera is getting a boost to 8 megapixels, from 5 megapixels, while the rear one stays at 12 megapixels. All for a feature that some are considering more of a gimmick than an actual necessity.

As with previous models, the S8 is water and dust resistant and features a memory card slot to supplement 64 gigabytes of built-in storage.
As part of its launch, Samsung will be including its Gear virtual reality headset to customers pre-ordering the handsets. This puck-shaped docking station takes full advantage of the powerful hardware inside the two new flagships, essentially turning them into a into a desktop PC. In that mode, people will be able to resize windows and work with several apps at once.
Microsoft has its own mobile platform in Windows 10 Mobile, but that isn't stopping the company from selling a new Android phone in its stores. Samsung also unveiled a router that doubles as a hub for internet-connected appliances and lights. Existing owners can buy just the controller for about $40.
