The Galaxy Fold is the latest device in Brazil to officially support Bixby in Portuguese. There’s even more good news for customers who don’t own a foldable device, as Samsung Brazil also confirmed that the Portuguese version of Bixby will be available for both the Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite at a later date. No exact availability details were revealed.
Samsung began testing the Portuguese version of Bixby in Brazil a couple of months ago using the Galaxy S10 series as its testing platform. The first public build was later made available for the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 series, but in the meantime, the Galaxy Fold started gaining traction in the country. Samsung’s first foldable phone was sold out in Brazil on the first day on the market, despite the high $3,000 price.
Bixby in Portuguese will launch for more devices
Even though the Galaxy Fold was released in limited quantities, it still is the company’s most expensive and ambitious mobile device sold in Brazil. Having said that, it’s great to see that people who have spent around $3,000 for the privilege of owning the Galaxy Fold will have their user experiences improved with a better virtual assistant.
