Samsung Galaxy S8 to Pack In-house AI Digital Assistant

November 7, 2016, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The battery hassle of Galaxy Note 7 had sent Samsung absolutely scampering, and the company is now putting all its effort to regain its usual pace in the tech industry with the upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S8.

There have been many off-the-beat technologies being rumored for the next big Galaxy, but only a few have got the official nod. One such confirmed feature is the inclusion of Samsung’s in-house digital assistant technology.

The South Korean manufacturer has now confirmed that it will be introducing its artificial intelligence powered digital assistant in the new Samsung Galaxy S8 flagship smartphone, which will be introduced during the Mobile World Congress to be held during March next year in Barcelona.


The inclusion comes as a part of Samsung’s acquisition of Viv, a startup formed by the creators of Siri, during the previous month. The introduction will be the debut for the digital assistant, and it will have its expansion subsequently to other home appliances as well.

It hasn’t been specified how the digital assistant will be serving its users in the smartphone. But one assurance is that it will have third-party integration to come up with top-quality personal assistant services.

As with the Galaxy S8 flagship, the device is expected to be coming out in Snapdragon 830/Exynos 8895 SoC. There will also be two size variants; the 5.1-inch QHD version and the 5.5-inch 4K version, both of which are said to be featuring curved display. That said, Samsung will finally have the flat screen ditched from Galaxy S series. The bigger variant will also introduce 6GB of RAM for the first time in its flagship smartphone series.
