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.

High-resolution screen

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.
