Virtual assistant Bixby and Samsung Pay Mini spotted on Samsung's website

Proof of Bixby's existence and its integration with Samsung Pay Mini is seemingly confirmed by an image found on Samsung's own website. It appears on a page called Samsung Pay Beta and shows various options available for Samsung Pay including "Mini," and "Bixby."
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to be unveiled on April 18th. Originally slotted for a introduction at MWC in Barcelona next month, Samsung reportedly had to delay the event so that it could pack the device with Qualcomm's latest and greatest chipset, the Snapdragon 835.

Is it also indicating to scan where the fingerprint is on the screen? Meaning an under the glass reader?

Still thinking this going to be a terrible idea. Google already has an (obviously superior) AI they could have plugged into. With Bixby only working on Samsung apps they're once again fragmenting the ecosytem and creating a service with very limited use. I understand they're fighting tooth and nail to keep users within their app ecosystem but this is exactly why I've dumped Samsung... other devs have superior solutions to everything they offer yet Samsung insists on bloating the device and ram use. Just ignore the S8. Wait for the next Pixel, do yourself a favor.
