    Samsung announced its acquisition of Viv Labs last month, it’s an artificial intelligence startup founded by the people that created Siri. Viv Labs has created a unique, open artificial intelligence platform which enables third-party developers to build conversational assistants like Siri, the platform also enables them to integrate a natural language-based interface in apps and services. It has since been rumored that the Galaxy S8 is going to feature an AI assistant powered by this startup’s technology.

    The company has filed for a trademark in South Korea, it seeks protection of the word “Bixby,” the application details that this brand will be used for “computer software for personal information management,” “computer application software for smartphones, mobile telephones, portable computers and tablet computers, Namely, software used to operate voice recognition system” and “computer software for enabling hands-free use of a mobile phone through voice recognition.”

    It’s obviously just speculation right now that the Galaxy S8′s intelligent assistant might be called Bixby but the timing is what makes the whole thing seem plausible. These trademark applications do have a way of tipping us about new services before they’re actually launched so I wouldn’t rule out the possibility completely yet. Samsung is due to unveil the Galaxy S8 in February next year.

    You don't deserve anything for free. None of us do.

    You're entitled to pay for your tiny piece of wonderful technology and enjoy it.

    According to the latest report out of South Korea, the Galaxy S8 from Samsung will be made available in two display sizes; one with a 5.7″ display, and the other with a 6.2″ display. While those screen sizes may intimidate a few people, what they imply are actually quite exciting.

    In order to deliver a 6.2″ display that doesn’t protrude straight out of your pocket or purse, it is reported that Samsung will ditch all bezels on the Galaxy S8, as well as the home button. With the removal of the home button, it should be expected that we might see on-screen buttons, instead of Samsung’s long-standing capacitive keys. This means, while the display size enlarges, the overall dimensions of the device do not.

    I hope that u.s. former note 7 customers get a special deal if they go from the S7/7edge to the 8.

    I hope we know sooner rather than later. I wonder when an announcement will be made? I have a 6P and considering the Pixel, but I don't know.

    I never owned a phone that wasn't an iphone until the Note 4. Then a year later I got a Nexus 6P. I don't care for Touchwiz, but the S8 rumors are getting my hyped!

    Ditching the home button is the most exciting thing from this announcement to me There were many seemed-credible-at-the-time that they were planning to lose the home button, reversed button configuration and move to stock android on screen buttons on the Note 5 - and when that didn't happen and it didn't happen on the S7 it appeared that whomever was spearheading their fix-the-design to modern standards initiative had been sacked.

    Even though I like the S7Edge I still feel like it's something I had to settle for because the Note 7 was so above and beyond

    ...what we have seen consistently reported was Samsung’s decision to*fully embrace its dual-edge panels*and make them*standard on high-end device.
    To paraphrase Oprah:

    You get a distorted screen, and he gets a distorted screen, and she gets a distorted screen, EVERYONE gets a distorted screen!

    Seriously, I can't stand how it wraps what should be normal viewing space onto the edge screen.

    Google Daydream just released requirements stating that the screen size has to be below 6". Is this going to disqualify the 6.2" bezeless S8?

    Why would Samsung suddenly switch from the Gear VR and Oculus to use Google Daydream?

    The dimensions of the S8 aren't going to change. Just the screen size due to removing the bezels. This is going to be a stunning device!
