Samsung Galaxy S8 might feature dedicated assistant button

Samsung has confirmed that Galaxy S8 smartphone will feature an enhanced artificial intelligence service. Samsung might also be working on the assistant with a dedicated hardware button on the S8. According to rumors, the company may call it Bixby.

Samsung Electronics Vice President Rhee In-jong said, “We are developing a key major interface which will bring about a totally new paradigm; an open AI platform. The current Galaxy smartphones need separate applications for users, for instance, to order pizza or coffee. But, the new AI platform will enable them to order (or do) things directly without going through separate applications.

Currently, the company is testing this new feature on prototypes.
