However, Samsung promises that users will be able to issue commands to Bixby "later this spring". The Korean-language version of Bixby will have all of its features at launch, the Journal report said.

Bixby AI assistant was unveiled in NY in March. We will see what the people's reaction is going to be when the new devices will finally become available. Most professional and fan commentary about the phone has focused on its physical design, which features a almost all-screen front with no home button.
"It's still a bit early, but initial response to the pre-orders that have begun at various places across the world have been better than expected", Koh said at a media briefing.
