Two Galaxy S8 variants rumored, Viv AI assistant said to replace S Voice


Last updated: October 12th, 2016 at 09:06 UTC+02:00

Samsung has a lot riding on the Galaxy S8 as it will seek to build its reputation after the mess that was the Galaxy Note 7. Rumors about the next-generation flagship continue to come in and we’re bound to hear more in the coming weeks and months. Huge hardware changes have already been predicted for the Galaxy S8 and the latest rumor out of China claims that there will be two variants of the Galaxy S8. One is said to feature a 2K 5.1 inch curved Super AMOLED display and the other a 5.5-inch with a 4K display.

The Galaxy S8 is likely going to be powered by the 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 processor, in some markets it will feature Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 processor. The much-rumored dual-camera system of the Galaxy S8 is said to be exclusive to the larger variant. The rumor also claims that the Viv artificial intelligence assistant is going to replace S Voice in the Galaxy S8. S Voice isn’t similar to other intelligent assistants like Siri so it will be a welcome addition to the flagship. It merits mentioning here that Samsung recently confirmed the acquisition of Viv Labs, the company behind this assistant, it’s also interesting to note that the people who founded this company previously worked on Siri.

Some have suggested that the Galaxy S8 might be launched earlier to contain the fallout from the Galaxy Note 7 mess but at this point in time that seems unlikely. If history is any indication, we can expect to see Samsung unveil the Galaxy S8 at MWC 2017 in February.
