However, the virtual AI assistant including Vision, Home, and Reminder will be shipped with the global launch of the new Galaxy S8 lineup on April 21. “Key features of Bixby, including Vision, Home, and Reminder, will be available with the global launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8 on April 21.

In a similar report, the Wall Street Journal citing sources said that the English version of Bixby could be delayed dut to performance issues found while conducting an internal test at Samsung.

“During internal tests in recent weeks, the performance of Bixby’s voice recognition in English has lagged behind that of the virtual assistant’s performance in Korean, these people said, and company executives are still discussing when to make Bixby available in English”, the WSJ report cited.

To remind, Samsung’s Bixby voice assistant was first introduced in March before the official launch of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Samsung touting its new AI assistant to be ‘fundamentally different’ from Siri claimed that the Bixby is more ‘intelligent’ and can handle complex requests. The cognitive tolerance in the AI assistant will also be able to understand commands better with ‘incomplete information’ and execute a task based on the available information.

With the onset of the Bixby AI assistant, Samsung had entered the virtual assistance sphere that is mostly controlled by Apple, Amazon and Google are already existing digital assistant. Notably, Google’s personal intelligent assistant the Google Assistant will also run on the Galaxy S8 series.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.

Get to know the Galaxy S8 and S8+

The two phones, which are only differentiated by their screen size and battery capacity, come in at 5.8-inches and 6.2-inches with extra-tall 18.5:9 aspect ratio displays. That battery difference is pretty subtle: 3500mAh for the Galaxy S8+ and 3000mAh for the standard Galaxy S8. You may note that the Galaxy S8+’s battery is actually 100mAh smaller than the Galaxy S7 edge of last year, while the Galaxy S8’s is the same size as the Galaxy S7 despite being a larger phone.

Though the batteries haven’t increased in size, the hope is that the improved efficiency of the new 10 nm processor inside that’ll be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or the Samsung Exynos 8895, depending on the region will provide some help.

The processor is backed up by 4GB of RAM, an increase to 64GB of storage, and of course a microSD card slot. Waterproofing and wireless charging are still here as well, plus a new USB-C port on the bottom. The rear camera is unchanged in terms of its 12MP sensor and f/1.7 lens but will have improved processing thanks to new software and a new ISP (image signal processor).
