Samsung Electronics says Galaxy S8 pre-orders exceeded S7


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.

Peter Wells takes a first look at Samsung's latest mobile device at its NY launch.

As the release date of April 21 fast approaches, Samsung has commissioned a series of enormous 7x3m custom sculptures in an effort to capture the immersive nature of the Galaxy S8's Infinity Display. Heck, they couldn't even demo or show off Bixby's features to the press when it was first announced. By building its own artificial intelligence system using voice input and cognitive inference, Samsung is showing it can also match Apple in software prowess.

Samsung customers who pick up the new phones won't be completely without a bot for barking orders. Bixby, Google's voice assistant, will not be included in the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8. Some analysts said that many Galaxy users may have opted to depend on Google Assistant anyway, as it was more well-known.

It's unclear how the loss of Bixby at launch will affect sales, since voice assistants don't rank as high for consumers pondering a new phone as other factors such as battery life and camera quality. The helper will reportedly not support voice command, at least for the time being.

This is a crucial launch for Samsung.

One thing about Samsung is for certain, it goes all-in when it comes to marketing. With Bixby, they reportedly only wish to make navigating their devices easier for people.

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.
