The South Korean technology unveiled in New York the details of its new star terminals, with which it wants to leave behind the black clouds caused by the scandal of #galaxy Note 7, the "phablet" that had to withdraw from the market due to a problem of ignition of its Batteries.
The #Screens, 5.8 inches for the S8 and 6.2 for the S8 +, are the most outstanding feature of the terminals. To achieve a size that is manageable with only one hand, the technology has almost completely reduced the horizontal frames - vertical does not have -, has opted for an 18.5: 9 format and has removed the menu button - and has enabled a pressure sensitive area that does the same functions..
It has HDR + and a resolution of 2,960 x 1,440 pixels and allows the user to split the screen to perform two tasks at once: like sending a message while watching a video. With a monopolising screen, curved side edges and rounded corners, the firm claims that the S8 is the "most beautiful" device it has manufactured to date.
With it, #samsung enters the battle of personal assistants with Bixby, which offers requested information and handles the configuration of the terminal: for example, it can be ordered not to bother the user for a certain time, open the photo gallery, Teach recorded videos at a specific time or display an image on the TV.
The virtual assistant "Bixby"
The assistant is integrated with the camera, so you may be asked to identify a particular product or place - to get information about a monument, thanks to an agreement with Foursquare.
In some territories, Samsung has signed a collaboration agreement with Amazon so that users can directly buy the objects that Bixby scans with the camera.
The assistant - accessed through a side button of the S8 - is born with imperfections that, according to Samsung, will be polished because their artificial intelligence learns and evolves with use. In a first phase, it will be available in English and Korean, although soon after in Spanish and Chinese.
