Galaxy S8 name and new AI assistant mentioned in Samsung employee LinkedIn profile

Galaxy S8 name and new AI assistant mentioned in Samsung employee LinkedIn profile
Among the many new features that Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S8 flagship phone should bring, we've mentioned, more than once, an enhanced digital assistant. Possibly called Bixby, the new assistant will allegedly be much more useful than S Voice, thanks to the AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology that Samsung gained last year after buying Viv.

Both the new AI assistant and the Galaxy S8 name are now referenced in the LinkedIn profile of June K. Sung, Principal Program Manager at Samsung Electronics USA. More exactly, the Manager's profile mentions that he's responsible for driving "the execution and delivery for Samsung's upcoming AI (Artificial Intelligence) assistant on Galaxy S8." That's in case you weren't truly convinced that a Galaxy S8 with a new AI assistant was coming soon.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 will probably be announced in late March, so we're still about two months away from finding out all there is to know about it. Anyway, it looks like there will be two variants of the phone (with 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch screens, respectively), both expected to be available starting April 14.

Bixby... Will you be a feature on the upcoming note 8? That's my first question...

Ugh, fanboys. If someone says no, will you believe?

If you can ask it in the S8 then of course it'll be on the note 8. But if it's not on the S8, who will you ask?

I wasn't really referring to the best looking phone of 2017 otherwise I'd probably hold the question until December. But, it's cool if you don't want to answer.

What ''phone'' are you talking about ignorant? Should we shut up all the US media, because some of you take everything in the media as it's real and true? Come on! Learn to live in democracy, man.

NO WAY, 5.8'' display to fit into Galaxy GS7(5.1'') body-footprint ! Or 6.2'' into GS7Edge(5.5'') body-footprint ! No matter how slim the bezels are. So all that is fake-news. Still taking bets?
