In order for people to immediately forget the troubled Galaxy Note 7, which tainted the Korean company's brand, Samsung's next offering, the Galaxy S8, needs to boast of more advanced specs and features that could easily differentiate it from the fire-prone phablet. One of the answers to that is a highly-enhanced AI for the Samsung Galaxy S8.
According to a fresh report from Reuters, The South Korean tech titan announced today that an artificial intelligent digital assistant service will be launched for the Samsung Galaxy S8. If this new service together with other more interesting specs and features Samsung is hopefully cooking will make the Galaxy S8 a huge hit, then it will definitely be a lot faster for the brand to gain back the momentum.
The digital assistant will be based on the work of artificial intelligence company Viv Labs, which was purchased by Samsung last month. Specifics about the AI virtual assistant were not disclosed during the briefing, but Samsung did say that it will allow customers to utilize third-party services effortlessly.
"Developers can attach and upload services to our agent," talking about the AI assistant, Rhee Injong, the Samsung Executive Vice President explained.
"Even if Samsung doesn't do anything on its own, the more services that get attached the smarter this agent will get, learn more new services and provide them to end-users with ease."
"That will allow an edge-to-edge OLED display under the glass," the report noted.
