Samsung Unveils Galaxy S8 With 'Bixby' Voice Assistant

Samsung has unveiled their highly anticipated Galaxy S8 Smartphone, complete with some innovative features. The new version features bigger displays than the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, and has curved screens that extend onto the sides. 

But the most talked-about addition is sure to be "Bixby", Samsung's new voice assistant. According to Samsung, Bixby is "fundamentally different" from competitors like Apple's Siri and Amazon's Alexa. Bixby has the ability to observe behavior patterns and add in reminders. If you call your husband at the same time every day, for example, Bixby will ask you (unprompted) if you'd like to call him at that time.

The phone also has facial recognition, supports HDR video, is waterproof and has built-in virtual reality support. Don't go looking for the home button - it's been removed entirely. Preorders start today and shipping begins April 21st. The S8 will initially be available in midnight black, orchid gray and arctic silver.
