Samsung Galaxy S8 to launch without one key feature!

Montez Delgado | 16 Abril, 2017, 10:45

Competition in the virtual assistant space is intense as Bixby will be up against the likes of Apple's (NASDAQ: AAPL) Siri, Amazon's (NASDAQ: AMZN) Alexa and the Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL) Assistant, which is native to the Android operating platform that will run on the Galaxy S8 handsets.

Samsung has confirmed that it will be shipping the Galaxy S8 without one of the device's hallmark feature - Bixby voice assistant. While there is also no confirmation as to when users will be able to use the feature, it is likely that owners of the Galaxy S8 will have to wait until later this spring for a software update to get their hands on a full-fledged Bixby. Samsung is "proudly" claiming that Bixby is the most intelligent virtual assistant on the market yet, capable of performing tasks that other virtual assistants can not.

Elon Musk says Tesla semi truck to debut in September
The decision to release an EV pickup truck makes sense in the USA market, where the three most popular cars sold are all pickups . In addition, the 45-year-old said Tesla's economy vehicle , the Model 3, will finally be launched in July.

During the announcement of the Galaxy S8 in March, Samsung positioned Bixby as one of the key signature additions - alongside the edge-to-edge Infinity Display - to the Galaxy line of smartphones.

In a response to the Journal, Samsung said some Bixby features will be available when the S8 hits US shelves on April 21, but voice-activated Bixby services won't be an option until late spring.

The 8 inmates Arkansas was planning to execute this month
The Associated Press previously determined, using package labels, who made the state's supply of midazolam and vecuronium bromide. The company said it was reassured the drug would be returned and even issued a refund, but the drug was never returned.

This shouldn't be a surprise, considering that creating voice-based AI assistants isn't easy, so a beta version of Bixby is definitely expected.

Bixby is content aware meaning that, provided you are within a compatible app, users can refer directly to items on-screen. At launch, the company had said that people would be able to do things like edit or rotate a photo and play a video by simply using their voice. While several features will work on worldwide versions, those that rely on voice activation and control won't operate, because Samsung apparently hasn't perfected Bixby's understanding of English yet. "Bixby Voice will be available in the US on the Galaxy S8 later this spring".

The Honda Clarity EV doesn't make any sense
But for now, the leases are confined to California (U.S), which hosts about 34 hydrogen fueling stations. Other than being largely silent, the experience wasn't too different from driving, say, a Honda Accord.
