Samsung may launch new Uhsupp social network service along with Galaxy S9
Samsung announced its new flagships – Galaxy S9 and S9+ will be officially unveiled at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 trade fair on February 25. Both smartphones are said to hit the shelves less than a month after their reveal.

Along with the new smartphones, Samsung is expected to introduce a new social network service called “Uhsupp.” The name has already been trademarked in both the EU and South Korea, but it is yet unclear if it will be available in the United States as well.

According to a report coming from Samsung's home turf, Uhsupp social network service will be launched on March 19, but it will be open to the public on February 25 when the Galaxy S9 will be unveiled.

Uhsupp will allow users to share their location in real time, as well as send and receive messages between them. The service will work just like Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp, so it remains to be seen whether or not Samsung will bring anything new to the table.

I thought we have enough social networks already, it doesn't make any sense

Wow, didn't think they could come up with something more useless than Bixby, but I guess I was wrong.

who said Bixby is useless?? When it came out it was a dumb assistant that couldnt do much ir recognized you, nut since its improvement professional tech reviewers like it or some even love it. It's convenient to have your cards there and when bixby voice is launched, you can tell it to do multistep automation in apps, which no assistant can do. Like open instagram and post the latest photo, etc. Get rewarded with Samsung pay point, edit the card page, and lots of useful things to make life easier. You obviously dont own a Bixby device or don't use it enough if you own one. But then youre probably the kind if person to say the Galaxy S8 and Note 8 lag just because you knew the Samsung devices of the past lags a tiny bit and not realize how much Samsung has improve its UI with UX 8.1 and 8 5. Bixby is great andnperfect with Samsung's UX

Honestly nobody outside US uses iMessage. The whole world is dominated by Whatsapp and WeChat.

Google does but no one wants to use it. Allo is supposed be that iMessage competitor. Google should just make Android message better. It's already a pretty good messaging app. They just need to combine it with Allo.

Can samsung stop making apps that have no additional use. It's redundant.

well, wasnt you glad Facebook existed, sp you can leave slow laggy myspace. I mean Vine, and snapchat, came out of no where even though vine is just for videos, people still share stuff and comment. Who knows maybe Samsung got something interesting. Dont be doubt something you don't know. I'll laugh if it catches on and you'll end up using it, whether is social media ir Instant messaging, or an app that maintain s all your feeds from different social media .

This just looks like they're trying to complete with Facebook Messenger and iMessage. I wouldn't go so far as to call it a "social network."
