What to expect from Samsung Galaxy S8
The S Voice app may also be axed to accommodate the smarter Al assistant that according to a recent Samsung announcement was acquired from Viv labs. Samsung’s own S Voice development fell far short of Google Assistant and Siri and therefore, bring in an entirely new AL assistant must do loads of good for the now beleaguered Korean Smart Phone maker.

The Viv Labs acquisition by Samsung is strong indicator that the Smartphone maker is preparing for something new with regard to Al. Other speculations in recent times, surrounding Galaxy S8 also include the adoption of ‘full-screen’ display which will do away with the bezels at the bottom and the top as well as dispense with the home button which is typical to the series.
